Travel Tips for booking flight options to Costa Rica online
If you take the time, you can find incredible flight options to Costa Rica flying during the week may get you a good deal compared to the weekends.
There are many other travel tips online that you can try and air travel search sites to compare fares with.
I have found many flight loads at www.farecompare.com to compare fares flying to/from Liberia or San Jose.
Using the ITA software may give you some of the best flight information but you will have to go to the airline site to buy tickets.
When it comes to budget airlines or low-cost carriers, try searching their websites directly because not always they advertise in online agencies.
Always keep in mind that luggage fees and taxes have to be considered when you search for the rates.
Airfares have been lower when flying into San Jose Airport due to a much higher level of airline competition.
There have been considerable differences of 20% to 40% in prices among low-cost airlines and major carriers.
However, Liberia Airport will be experiencing new flights since the new building is getting ready to open.
Its big advantage of being so close to the north Pacific coastline facilities will make a difference to clients.
The fact that no many travelers want to drive from the city for 4 or 5 hours makes it very attractive.
Flying into San Jose and out of Liberia may be still a convenient option for travelers who want to visit more attractions while on vacation.
