This Lucky’s Casino property is located in the Perez Zeledon suburb in Costa Rica’s San Jose Province. The casino is inside Lucky’s Hotel and Casino which is one of the biggest hotels in the suburb. Lucky’s is a chain of Costa Rican casinos owned by Thunderbird Resorts Incorporated, an international company that operates multiple hotels and casinos worldwide.
Perez Zeledon is the 7th largest suburb in the entire country and has its own domestic airport, San Isidro de El General Airport. The airport has connecting flights through both Costa Rica and Central America. It is recommended to use this airport, but If you decide to land at the nearest international airport, Tobias Bolanos International, you will need to travel 137 km which will take you around 3 hours by car. You will either be able to take a taxi, which will be costly for a 3-hour journey or rent a car. There is free parking available at the hotel and casino.
There are many entertaining destinations for tourist throughout Costa Rica. Beaches, natural parks, and volcanoes are some of the most popular among foreign tourists. The nearest beach is less than a 40-minute drive away, but by driving a bit further you will reach the breathtaking black sand beaches. The largest active volcano, Volcano Irazu, is 3 hours away near the capital of San Jose.
All of the Lucky’s Casino properties in Costa Rica require guests to dress semi-casually and to be over the age of 18.
