If you are able to get away in May, you can go to Costa Rica, round trip, for as little as $216. I just made a search on Kayak and found that price for a 10-day trip, between May 7 and May 17, flying Aeromexico. For whatever reason, flights to Costa Rica for next month are costing under $300 from Florida, Houston, Las Vegas, New York, and Washington D.C.
If you have family over there where you can crash, this can make for a very affordable vacation. If you are a backpacker that needs only a tent and a beach, here’s your chance. But in reality, hostels over there are also quite cheap, some of them as low as $15 per night.
The sun, the ocean, the rainforest, the delicious tropical fruit, and the monkeys are waiting. Now all you need is the time off work!
