Sansa Airlines launches new flights for Costa Rica holidays to Limon

Travellers planning holidays to Costa Rica this summer will have the chance to explore the country’s Caribbean coastline as Sansa Airlines gets ready to launch four flights a week between the cities of San Jose and Limon in July 2011.

The new route has been introduced to encourage more tourists to take Costa Rica holidays to the stunning Caribbean region of Limon, a wild and beautiful place set apart from the rest of the country. The flights are part of the Limon Port City Project, a $72.5 million government programme which will improve Limon’s image by helping to develop small businesses and employment in order to fight poverty in the area.

Sansa Airlines is based in San Jose at Juan Santamaría International Airport and was established in 1980. The airline operates services under the Grupo TACA regional airline system and offers flights across Central America and the Caribbean using a fleet of propeller aircrafts.

The airline will be offering at least four flights a week to the blessed and stunning region of Limon from San Jose. In addition to this the airline also offers a wide range of daily flights to other Costa Rica holiday destinations such as Drake Bay, Liberia, Tamarindo, Tambor, Samara, Golfito and Punta Islita.

Limon is situated on the east coast of Costa Rica and is made up of a thriving afro-Caribbean community and breathtaking landscapes.

The beautiful province is perfect for surfing enthusiasts planning Costa Rica holidays to practice this exciting water sport. Limon enjoys perfect surfing conditions, with a pristine Caribbean coast lined with 125 miles of beautiful white sand palm fringed beaches and pumping marine conditions for amazing surf experiences.

The inland lush rainforests at Limon provide plenty of opportunities for tourists to explore the natural surroundings on hiking tours during holidays in Costa Rica, and the region is surrounded by stunning national parks and nature reserves.

Popular tourist attractions in the province include the Tortuguero National Park where visitors can witness turtles hatching, and the Cahuita National Park, which is home to Costa Rica’s indigenous tribes made up of the Bribri, Cocles and Talamanca Cabecarv communities.

The capital of the province of Limon, Puerto Limon, is the hub of the country’s Afro-Caribbean culture and is a fantastic place to soak up the atmosphere during carnival week in October where tourists and locals unite in parades, dancing, music, food and celebrations.

Puerto Limon, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and Manzanillo are great towns to visit where holidaymakers can experience the true culture and heritage of the Limon province. There are a variety of Costa Rica hotels, restaurants, bars, and fun-packed activities to choose from, including scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, surfing, and trekking.
