No.  We’re not building a new Villa!  What I was referring to was data that was provided to us from Chris Simmons, the real estate broker who sold us Villa Encantada.

The data provided information regarding the number of passengers that passed through Daniel Ouber International Airport (LIR) in Liberia, the primary airport that services the Villa.  September 2012 saw a 53.3% increase over 2011.  19,126 passengers arrived at the newly opened airport!

The other interesting factoid is that eight major airlines offer direct service to LIR from 12 different airports.  LIR is serviced from: Atlanta, Miami, JFK, Newark, Chicago, Minneapolis, Toronto, Montreal, Charlotte, Denver, Dallas and Houston.  This is even greater proof that Costa Rica is becoming an even stronger tourist destination and that trend is only going to continue.
