About San Jose Airport

Officially known as Juan Santamaria International Airport, this is the biggest and busiest airport serving the capital of Costa Rica, San José. As a result, this is the gateway to this fascinating island nation for millions of travelers every year and the place where untold tropical adventures begin. But before you get to visit the astounding natural paradise Costa Rica is known for, you're going to need to navigate San Jose Airport first.

Located 20 km west of the center of San José, the airport first opened in 1958 to replace a small airport that was once in central San José and has now been converted into a park. For many years, this was the only international gateway into the country, and although there is now another international airport in Liberia, this remains by far the country's busiest, handling more than 5 million passengers per year. In fact, San Jose airport is one of the busiest in all of Latin America.

Once you've navigated security, customs, and the various fast food options available at the airport, you'll probably be looking for a place to store your bags. You're in luck. Bounce partners with local businesses at San Jose Airport and in the city of San José itself to make sure you always have somewhere to store your luggage. Take advantage of the airport's free Wi-Fi to download our app and book luggage storage before you've even left the baggage claim area. With locations in San Jose and at the airport, you never need to struggle to find a place to store your luggage so you can enjoy your trip.

Top attractions near San Jose Airport

San Jose Airport is close to the city it serves, and as a result, you don't need to go far from the airport to enjoy some of the best attractions in the area. In fact, there are even some attractions you can visit before getting to the city.

Museo Histórico Cultural Juan Santamaría luggage storage

Located just outside the airport in a former military training ground and barracks, this interesting museum explores the military and political history of the nation of Costa Rica. The airport itself is named after Juan Santamaria, a drummer boy who lost his life in a battle fought by Costa Rica against American influence, and you'll learn more about him and the background to the nation's struggles for independence here. Intriguing as it is, this small museum isn't a great place for heavy bags, and there is no luggage storage provided here, so it's better to leave your bags at San Jose Airport or nearby before you visit.
