NatureAir Local FlightsNatureAir2NatureAir Information and Policies
Flying is by far the best way to get from Costa Rica's International Airport (SJO) to Crocodile Bay Resort. Driving can take up to 6 hrs and during certain times of the year, high river levels and other obstacles can make driving an impossibility. Round trip, local flights are included in our Platinum Transfer Package.

Since 2004, Nature Air has been the first airline to compensate for 100% of its carbon emissions from flight operations. We do this thru a locally certified compensation program, certified by the government and international third party auditors. Nature Air has chosen to support reforestation and conservation programs to help combat the impacts of deforestation in Costa Rica.

Only All Twin Engine Fleet In Costa Rica

Two is better than one. We believe in that here at Nature Air. As part of our company policy and our commitment to our passengers, Nature Air does not fly single engine aircrafts. In fact, our fleet is made up of the largest, most comfortable aircrafts here in Costa Rica – the Canadian build De-Haviland Dash-6 Twin Otter. An aircraft world renowned for its reliability, safety and comfort. We are proud to carry on the tradition of the Twin Otter here in Costa Rica.

Panoramic Window Views

Our company mission is Creating Memorable Experiences for Travelers. As Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful places in the world, naturally the views from above are stunning. For that reason, we are proud to feature panoramic windows on our fleet of Dash-6 Twin Otters. These windows are larger than most windows found in your home and provide excellent scenic views, photo opportunities and help make every flight into a Sky Tour. Our pilots are trained to help point out attractions like waterfalls, volcanoes and landmarks along the way.
