A few days later and it was time to make our way home. We were doing the journey home in one go.

XQP-SJO
SANSA Regional
Cessna 208B Grand Caravan
Seats: Just behind the Pilots


We arrived at Quepos airport an hour before our flight departed. The terminal is a private building and anyone who enters (including passengers) is charged $3 for the privilege of doing so!



Inside the small one room building we found the SANSA check-in desk, (as yet unmanned), a refreshment stall, a timeshare sales stand and a seating area in the middle of plastic garden furniture. We sat patiently as the other passengers on our flight began to arrive. When the check-in desk finally opened 15 minutes later, everyone approached the desk in the order they arrived. Unlike our flight from SJO, there was no excess baggage fees (despite the bags weighing the same) and our hand baggage wasn't subject to any form of scrutiny.

Once the last passenger was checked-in the Pilots led us out to the aircraft



We sat in the same seats as on the way out. This Cessna Caravan was a little older than the one on the way out. It had a traditional cockpit with dials rather than the glass screened version we flew in to Quepos. The view was different as we flew towards the more densely populated capital. We landed at San Jose on time and the small aircraft quickly taxied to the domestic terminal.
