I need information about the airports in the Guápiles Region (Limón, Costa Rica), all the Atlantic Coast. The Guápiles Airport isn't in the Map and this is the second best important airport in the Atlantic Coast. Thank yuou very much!

If you know there is an airport and it is still missing on the map then feel free to add it yourself.

Searching for Guápiles airport returns one node in the city of Guápiles.

The reason you did not see it is that the main map on openstreetmap.org can't possibly show everything on every zoom layer (no room to render every label and the map would be to cluttered).

The rendering for airports mapped as nodes seems a bit weird. It seems they are shown at lower zoom levels, but then disappear as you zoom in. Which means Guápiles Airport is only visible at zoom 10 and 12.

If the airport is mapped as an area, then it will be shown at the higher zoom levels.
