Hi Mountie.Wow. Not aware that Spirit would be flying to San Jose. (are you sure San Jose or will they fly to Liberia?) On LL, check out Punta Islita to bid on. Also, Finca Rosa Blanca. We have stayed at Tango Mar and I see the villa at Tango Mar is open for bids. Gaia is a new small luxury hotel of the world (just like Punta Islita.) It looks wonderful and I have heard positive feedback. If you decide to go, consider what type of trip you want. There are many "touristy" areas. If that is what you like, ok, however, there are smaller, quaint locations and properties. If this is your first time I would recommend: white water rafting, a canopy tour, visiting a local school, nature walks through the rain forest.
bonniejoy03, I went back and checked the Spirit Airlines web site and they will begin operating their flight from Fort Lauderdale to San Jose in April. I don't think I would be able to travel down there until maybe May or June, so maybe I can get luck and get one of their cheap fares. If the price is right on the air fare and I can get one or maybe two of the luxury link packages at bottom prices, then I think I will try to make the trip. I have been reading some article from the Internet and noticed that a lot of Americans, Canadians and Europeans are buying second homes and condos in Costa Rica. I'm sure I will be back to you for some tips! Thank you.
