WHich AIRPORT DO I FLY INTO? 

You will fly into SJO - Juan Santamaría International Airport

How do I arrange transportation to and from the airport?

Here are two options to consider but please feel free to explore others on your own:

Do I need a passport?

Yes!!! If you don't have one start this process now - USPS Passport Website. It can take up to 6 weeks to receive your passport, and sometimes longer. If you wait until the last minute you will have to pay $$$ in extra fees to expedite. If you already have a passport, check the expiration date - they might give you a hard time if it is expiring within 90 days of your travel plans to/from USA.
