How do I get to my Costa Rica vacation home?

Sadly, there are no direct commercial flights from Tampa to Costa Rica, despite its popularity as a destination.

From Miami to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, it’s a 2 hour 45 min flight on American Airlines – cost for the sampled first week of July is $235 round trip (from Tampa it’s $359 RT)

American also flies from Miami to Liberia, which is less than 30 minutes from several resort areas in Guanacaste (north Pacific coast, same flight time, but $662 round trip for the same period (obviously less demand). From Tampa it’s $572 on American via Miami or $517 on Delta via Atlanta (interesting logic it’s cheaper when you add an extra flight on American).

From Orlando to San Jose, Jet Blue  flies 3 hours and 8 minutes, for $218 round trip for the same time period.

Spirit flies from Ft Lauderdale to San Jose for $228 round trip – and from Tampa to San Jose, changing planes in Ft Lauderdale, it’s just $238.

All these are captured at a moment in time, and have various fees, options, etc. but it gives you a general idea of flying back and forth to Costa Rica. It’s a lot easier and faster than flying to Hawaii.
