Getting to Rancho Santana
There are two international airports within driving distance of the Ranch – Managua (MGA) and Liberia (LIR). A third international airport, Costa Esmeralda Airport (ECI), just recently opened 15 minutes from our gates, complete with its own Customs Department and duty-free shop. In addition to private charter flights, Sansa Airlines currently offers 10 scheduled commercial flights from Liberia to Costa Esmeralda Airport each week. La Costeña Airlines also offers private charter flights from Managua to Costa Esmeralda. Click here to view Costa Esmeralda’s flight schedules.
Rancho Santana can arrange ground transportation for guests arriving or departing at any of the above airports, and our on-site agent at the ranch can assist you with reserving a rental vehicle.

If arriving from Liberia, the estimated travel time to the ranch is roughly 4 hours. Please note: travel times via ground transportation can be delayed due to increased traffic at the border, especially at peak travel times. In addition, rental vehicles cannot be driven across the border.
