Subject: Avoid Airplane Surcharges When Flying To Los Suenos
(Posted on Dec 4, 2013 at 03:25PM )

los suenos costa ricaThe summer saunters up, bringing with it hot days and long nights. Travelers hurry to their closets, tugging out their suitcases and stuffing them with maps and smartphone chargers. It’s time to see the world.

It’s also time for airlines to ratchet ticket prices.

During the summer airlines will dramatically increase their prices, claiming a shortage of seats as justification for the countless fees. This greatly impacts every would-be tourist, especially those trying to get to Los Suenos, Jaco and other Costa Rican towns.

According to Fare Compare writer Rick Seaney, up to $60.00 can be applied to every passenger’s ticket, and families will quickly buckle beneath the surcharge weight.

It’s recommended, therefore, to avoid peak travel dates. Schedule a Costa Rica vacation for fall or winter, reducing overall costs and saving money for more important things - such as fishing excursions, hiking tours and zip-line adventures.

Eliminate the surcharge threat with careful planning and late-season trips.
