Guanacaste-Liberia International Airport
Departing from the "Gold Coast" of Costa Rica is a snap when you book flights from Guanacaste-Liberia International Airport with Orbitz.com. The airport occupies a strip of land about 20 minutes outside of Liberia, the capital city of Guanacaste Province. American Airlines, Delta, US Airways and Air Canada are just a few of the international carriers that schedule flights out of this airport. Guanacaste-Liberia became an international airport in 1995, making it Costa Rica's fourth such facility.
Parking at the Airport
There's a short-term parking facility and a curbside loading/unloading area at Guanacaste-Liberia. Long-term parking isn't really an option because this airport is primarily a tourist hub. The airport is primarily used by nonresidents, so parking a private vehicle for extended periods is rarely necessary.
Transportation to the Airport
Bus and shuttle services and taxicabs are available to take you from your lodging to the airport. Orbitz.com can help you identify the most affordable option. The airport lies just west of town on Highway 21. Travel time from the city of Liberia to the airport averages about 20 minutes or less.
Restaurant Options at Guanacaste-Liberia International Airport
There's both a full-service restaurant and a convenient snack bar located within the air-conditioned terminal of the airport. The terminal also has other services and amenities to help you be more comfortable while you're waiting for a flight, such as a bank, restrooms and medical facilities. Tourists who book flights from Guanacaste-Liberia with Orbitz.com will most certainly have a pleasant experience.
Trips to Barcelona
Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is the second largest city in Spain and has a population of over 1.6 million.

The airport is one of the top 10 busiest in Europe, with over 34 million passengers passing through it in 2011. Some of the airlines flying into El Prat Airport include Aeroflot, Air France, British Airways, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, with most offering reservation services with great deals for budget travelers through Orbitz.com.
Transportation From the Barcelona El Prat Airport
Travel from the airport to the downtown area is available by commuter train, taxi and the city's bus services. The rail service connects Terminal 2 at the airport to the Barcelona Metro, while a bus service is available every 10 minutes. The train takes 27 minutes, while buses take approximately 35 minutes to make the journey to the downtown area. Bus and metro tickets cost about $16 and include transfers, with the ability to use the ticket on both transport types. Taxis can be caught in front of each of the airport's terminals. More than one suitcase or larger items will incur an additional transport fee when using the city taxis.
