Frequent users of the Juan Santamaría International Airport, Costa Rica’s main terminal, can now pay discounted long-term parking rates. The new rates took effect in late February.
Following an increase last October of the hourly rate — from $2.14 to $2.48 — the Aviation Administration‘s Technical Council recommended setting two new long-term rates of $35 per day and $200 per week.
For those paying the daily rate, the cost per hour is now $1.45, representing a 41-percent discount. Users paying weekly rates will pay $1.19 per hour, a 52-percent discount. Parking rates also can be paid in Costa Rican colones, according to the daily exchange rate reported by the Central Bank.
