Luxury hotel Cala Mia consists of 11 beautiful Bungalows, or suites, each with its own thatched roof rancho and all within 10 meters from the ocean or the beach/bay-side.

Hello, They do not have direct flights From SJO to David. You would have to connect in PTY and then fly to David. Hope this helps you out.
