Puerto Jiménez Airport (IATA: PJM, ICAO: MRPJ) is an airport serving Puerto Jiménez, a Gulf of Dulce coastal town in Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica. The airport is just east of the town. It is owned and managed by the country's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC).

Given the distance between Puerto Jiménez and the capital city of San José, the airport is the first choice for tourists traveling to Corcovado National Park and Golfo Dulce.

The runway is near the shoreline, and north approach and departure are over the water. The Coto 47 non-directional beacon (Ident: COT) is located 20.1 nautical miles (37 km) east-northeast of the airport. The David VOR-DME (Ident: DAV) is located 52.0 nautical miles (96 km) east of the airport.[6][7]
