I know I’ve exhausted Costa Rica, but this just came to my attention: *$599* all inclusive package for airfare from Miami to San Jose, seven-day SUV rental (minus fuel), seven-day hotel stays in San Jose, Arenal, Jaco (which we missed) and Monteverde. Depart on Mondays between May 4-July 27. At gate1travel.com. Mention BTMAYCRS1 for car upgrade until June 29 and BTMAYCRS2 until July 27.
We’re a little bummed that we did NOT see this deal when we were there, but, you do not get to experience Manuel Antonio, which would be a shame. I would also try to strategize with one person taking the package and the other person just finding regular airfare. If you’re leaving from other cities, the additional airfare is as follows: L.A. ($34), N.Y. ($53), and Houston ($82).
