Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from Miami to San Jose starts from $409 with taxes for travel in mid-October (American). Add to that $170 per person, including tax, for three nights at the Cloud Forest Lodge, and you'd be paying $579 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $30 less than that, this package covers the flight, three nights' hotel accommodations, plus three breakfasts, all taxes and fees, and offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.

More Additional excursions/activities are available for a fee, including a half-day horseback-riding tour from $30 per person and a half-day rain-forest canopy tour from $45 per person. Extend your stay from $95 per person per night.
