Voice of Travelers to San Jose

Airfare ticket to San José

I needed to travel to San José for a birthday party. I booked a ticket last minute with Avianca Costa Rica. The ticket was quite cheap even though I bought it just a week before my flight. The ticket agent offered me a shuttle bus ticket from the airport to the city, which I accepted. Avianca Costa Rica delivered great service and when I needed to change the ticket date for returning back from San José, my ticket agent did not take any extras. I recommend Avianca Costa Rica for reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to San José.

Visiting San José with an airfare ticket for the first class

I visited San José last year. I was invited to San José conference on airline industry and all my costs were covered by the partner ticket agent. I flew with Avianca Costa RIca for free as my ticket was booked for the first class from Mexico City to San José. The airfare ticket must have been quite expensive, much more expensive than if the ticket was issued for the economy class. I did not buy the ticket though. The service aboard Avianca Costa Rica was just great. St. John is a fantastic city and in the free time I purchased a short trip to a one of the national parks. I would love to attend the conference in San José next year as well, even if this time I am not invited and I have to pay for my plane ticket to San José myself.
