Part I: Costa Rica Vacation – Getting Here is Now Faster…and Cheaper!
Costa Rica is an amazing vacation choice at the best of times yet with hot new flight deals coming up in the next few months, the choice just got simply too good to pass up.
The most exciting news to come out of the stellar tropical paradise is that new non-stop flights are now offered from far-afield destinations. Whether you’re East-side, West-side, or even other-end-of-the-Atlantic-side (think France and the UK), you can now dive straight into the Costa Rican wilderness – and frolic in her superb seas – in even less time.
Here are the latest airlines to offer non-stop flights to Costa Rica:
Air France –On mainland Europe, Paris has now become the ‘hot spot’ springboard for Costa Rica adventure vacations. Air France direct flights from Paris to San Jose are scheduled to take place twice a week (Saturdays and Wednesdays) with more planned in the future.
British Airways – BA’s 2015 announcement of its new flights to Costa Rica has been a much-anticipated event in the UK, and flights have finally started. For less than £600, British tourists can soak up the rays in one of the world’s most sought after holiday destinations faster AND cheaper. The new non-stop flights from London to San Jose are not only aimed at the British market, of course, but meant to satisfy the ever-increasing demand for fast and cheaper airfares from Europe to Costa Rica.
Removing the need for a usually time-consuming (not to mention expensive) transfer through an airport in the USA, direct services from Europe will no doubt revolutionize the already thriving tourism industry in Costa Rica.
Air France and British Airways now join Iberia – which offers direct 10-15hr flights from Madrid to San Jose.
Southwest Airlines – Southwest has been a trusted carrier in Costa Rica and the addition of new flights linking Los Angeles to the country’s eco-tourism mecca of Guanacaste adds to their appeal. Daily flights make getting in and out of Costa Rica an absolute breeze, and perfect for those last-minute getaways
Air Canada – At the end of 2016, Canada will begin its new schedule of direct flights between Montreal and San Jose, the Costa Rican capital. Just in time for that sun-drenched tropical Christmas you’ve been dreaming about!
If convenience and amazing holiday-value-for-your-cash are not enough, there’s also an added bonus to sweeten the Costa Rica adventure vacation deal. Due to a considerable drop in jet fuel prices across the globe in recent months, international airline travel is set to get immensely cheaper this summer. So much so, that if you book your flight in June, and fly by the end of August, flights are set to be the cheapest they’ve been for 7 years. Although this is mostly predicted for the domestic market within the USA, flight prices to Costa Rica are already slashed by one-third, making them the best value-for-money deal we’ve seen in years.
So don’t hold off any longer! Book your flights to San Jose pronto and you could be enjoying a superlative Costa Rica adventure vacation sooner (and cheaper!) than you ever thought possible.
