Guacalito de la Isla is closer than you think
International flights to Nicaragua land at Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA) in Managua, the nation’s capital, and are short two- to three-hour jaunts from major transportation hubs like Miami, Houston, Ft. Lauderdale and Atlanta. Easy flights are also available from Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Chicago, Toronto, New Orleans, Washington, D.C. and Dallas.
After landing, Guacalito de la Isla is only a 20-minute flight from the Managua International Airport. Flights land at our Costa Esmeralda Airport and guests are met and then driven 15 minutes to the property. Alternatetively, we are a scenic 120-minute car ride away from the airport. Our staff will arrange for your personal resort butler to greet you at the airplane, to assist with luggage and customs paperwork, and either assit with catching your domestic flight or driving you to Guacalito de la Isla via luxury coach (and back to Augusto C. Sandino International Airport at the conclusion of your stay).
Many of our guests and homeowners also choose to fly into one of Costa Rica's two international airports: San Jose (SJO) and Liberia (LIR). Once there, a 30-minute flight on Sansa Airlines brings you to our Costa Esmeralda Airport in Nicaragua where you will be picked up and then driven to the resort by private car. Costa Rica enjoys flights from Atlanta, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, New York, and Calgary, amongst others, on multiple airlines.
