Liberia Duty Free

Hello all, we will be flying into Costa Rica in April and I was wondering about the duty free shop. I have read that you can purchase upon arrival, which is great to not have to deal with bringing it from the US, but I am wondering what kind of selection they have.

Looking for some whiskey(Jameson's, Bushmill's, etc.) and some gin(bombay, tanqueray, etc.) and a couple odds and ends. Anyone know if they may have these things?

They definately had Tanqueray gin (we bought 4 bottles for a friend that was picking us up), They also had the whiskey. We picked up some yummy coconut rum, and some Irish cream type liqueur (for coffee). Not a bad selection.. We bought wine at the grocery store in town..Clos was surprisingly good (and inexpensive)

Okay, thanks for the info. That sounds great! So cool that you can get duty free on your way in instead of hassling with getting it there!

We visited a couple of weeks ago. There is a small duty free shop on both the departure and arrivals levels.

There is not a lot of selection, but we did buy a bottle of Johnny Walker "Double Black", which was $42 USD and was introduced this year at Duty Free Shops only. It is not yet available (at least in Canada) at any retail outlets.

We bought this upon arriving in Costa Rica, and packed it into our checked baggage for going home. Please note, if you fly United Airlines, they do not have duty free purchases on board to and from Liberia airport.

rmcda1 I know the duty free folks will tell you that they are the only place you can buy Double Black but this is not true. I know because this is one of my favourite "Whiskey con Aguas" Double Black has been available at LCBO's in Ontario for about two years. It is however a limited edition, and is not being produced anymore, so you are now lucky to see it on the shelves.It is, however MUCH less expensice at the duty fre , so it you see it - buy it, and then call em!
