Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from Miami to San Jose starts from $401 with taxes for travel in mid-February (Copa Airlines). Add to that $120 per person, including tax, for two nights at Hotel Presidente, $113 per person for two nights at Arenal Volcano Inn, and $115 per person for two nights at Hotel Belmar, and you’d be paying $749 for just the airfare and accommodations. For just $200 more than that, this package covers all flights, six nights’ hotel accommodations, five-day car rental with unlimited miles, airport to hotel transfers, daily breakfast, and all taxes and fees—including Costa Rica departure taxes.

More Additional excursions/activities are available for a fee, including a self-guided tour of Arenal’s hanging bridges eco project from $44 per person, and a half-day hike past the waterfalls, rivers and tropical plants of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve from $81 per person. Upgrade your hotel from $84 per person.
