Well, I finally set that right.
About two weeks ago I did a remote broadcast of my weekend show from the Four Seasons Costa Rica located in the northeastern part of the country on the Pacific Ocean, about an hour’s drive south of the border of Nicaragua.
The country’s main airport is in its capital of San Jose in the central part of Costa Rica, but I flew into the airport near the town of Liberia. Interestingly, part of the airport was built by the US during the Reagan years so Oliver North could send secret shipments of Iran/Contra weapons to Nicaragua. Today American, Delta, United, JetBlue and other airlines fly there.
As nice as the terminal is, you might not want to tarry for a meal. Three of us had lunch there: two orders of fish tacos, one beer, and two bottles of water cost $90. A small bag of nuts in the gift shop sold for $9.50, a buck less than a bag of “semi-precious stones” in another shop.
