Private Liberia Airport Shuttle

Private Liberia Airport shuttle services are the most popular and convenient transportation option from or to Liberia Costa Rica Airport. A private shuttle gives you the most flexibility in terms of booking and cancellations. It will also be the fastest transportation option to your destination since there are no scheduled stops at other destinations – it is a door-to-door service. This is an overview of what you can expect when booking LIR Shuttle’s private shuttle service.


When to book: Private Liberia Airport Shuttle services can be booked up to 2 hours before your arrival at LIR Airport, or with enough time to ready a van to meet you at the airport (that usually takes about 30 minutes). For peace of mind, and to ensure availability, it is recommended to book at least 2 days in advance.

Operating hours: The private airport shuttle service run 24/7, 365 days a year including during local and foreign holidays. The service meets all flights (private and commercial) and include unlimited waiting time in case of flight delays.

Passenger capacity: We can operate Private Liberia Airport Shuttle services for 2 to 50 passengers per vehicle. Depending on the needs of your group, we can maximize the number of passengers that can comfortably ride with their luggage in one vehicle. Our guarantee is a comfortable ride in a vehicle capable to accommodate your party and luggage comfortably.

Baggage allowance: Technically, we do not have a maximum baggage allowance in our private shuttles. You can bring as many bags and luggage as you can fit in the vehicles. The one thing we ask from you is to let us know if you will be traveling with excess (more than 2 large suitcases per person) or oversized (surfboards, boxes, bikes or strollers) luggage.

Type of Vehicles Used: All Private Liberia Airport Shuttle services are operated in our fleet of SUVs, vans, minibuses and coach buses. All vehicles are 2016 or newer, and are equipped with air-conditioning. All vehicles meet or exceed international safety standards and are properly maintained to guarantee safety and comfort. The fleet consist of the following vehicles:

Toyota RAV4

1 to 3 passengers

Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

1 to 3 Passengers

Hyundai H1 Minivan

1 to 5 Passengers


Toyota Hice Van

1 to 10 Passengers

Toyota Coaster Minibus

11 to 19 Passengers

Marcopolo Coach Bus

20 to 50 Passengers

Car seats: By Costa Rica law, all children under 9kg and 75 cm must ride in a backward facing car seat. Children from 10kg to 145cm must use a booster seat with shoulder restraints. We can provide up to 2 car seats or booster per each Liberia Airport private shuttle. It is highly recommended that you bring your own safety car seats though. Car seats must be installed by you, so bringing a car seat you are familiar with is a much better option. Please note that not all private shuttles have 3-point seat-belts. Plan on having to install your car seat with only lap belts since Costa Rica regulations do not demand 3-point seat-belts in all seats, only front seats.

Pet Policy: Traveling with pets is allowed in all our private airport shuttles. For safety reasons, pets must travel in their pet carriers. You can always request stops to let your pet out of the shuttle if it needs to. Our drivers will be happy to accommodate your pets’ needs as you see fit. Unless there are special requests, there is no extra charge for pets traveling in our private airport shuttles.

Modifications: Modifications can be made up to 3 hours in advance and carry no penalties or additional re-booking fees.

Cancellations: Private airport shuttles by LIR Shuttle offer the most flexible cancellation policy of all our transportation services. Cancellations can be made by phone or email up to 6 hours before your trip. Failure to cancel your service within this time frame will incur in a full charge of your trip.
