News travels at the speed of electrons these days, and normally we keep up fairly well in our jungle by the beach. This story from CNN, however, slipped past us earlier this month.
Following the logic that college students and their notoriously tight budgets find the best travel deals, CNN concludes that Costa Rica is their top destination for winter break. But the best part of the article applies to travelers of all ages and budgets:
The first two weeks of December and the first week of January are known as “dead weeks” in the travel industry, and are the “absolute best time to travel in the entire year,” Banas said.
There’s more good news for those who can’t get enough “pura vida” with American Airlines planning to restore the San José – Los Angeles route. According to flightglobal.com.
In April American also launched four weekly flights to San Jose from New York JFK. “That flight has been tremendously successful for us,” Del Pozo says. “We’re very pleased with the performance.” He adds: “Absolutely my plan is to go daily” with New York-San Jose.
Launching a San Jose-Los Angeles service is also in American’s plans, says Del Pozo. The US carrier previously operated a seasonal San Jose-Los Angeles service, but dropped it in 2007.
This is all good news for Costa Rica and the smart people who choose to join us in paradise!
