Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between Miami and San José starts from $441 in early January (Taca International Air). Add to that $136 per person including taxes, $160 per person without taxes for two nights at the Mountain Paradise Hotel, $216 per person without taxes for two nights at El Establo Mountain Hotel, and you're already spending $953 on airfare and accommodations alone. For $306 more than that, this travel package gives you airfare and six nights in three Costa Rican locales, all transfers and transportation within the country, daily breakfast, and covers all hotel and air taxes and fees.
