Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from Newark to Liberia starts from $425 with taxes for travel in mid-April (United). Add to that $1,659 per person including tax for seven nights at Hotel Riu Guanacaste, and you’d be paying $2,084 for the airfare and all-inclusive accommodations. For $722 less than that, this package covers the flight, seven nights’ all-inclusive accommodations, all taxes and fees, and offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.
