The northern Caribbean including Tortuguero plus popular inland destinations like Rincón de la Vieja, Tenorio and Celeste waterfall, Arenal volcano and La Fortuna, Monteverde cloud forest and the routes to them from SJO international airport near the capital and LIR international airport outside Liberia are on page one (above links go to free detailed printable maps of the indicated regions).
