QTRAVEL  – Avianca has put Miami on sale this month (June) with fares starting at US$306, return and all taxes in.

The promo price is valid to December 10, with blackout dates from July 23 to August 20 for flights from Costa Rica and July 2 to July 20 leaving Miami.

I did a check on flights from San Jose (SJO) to Miami (MIA) leaving June 20 and returning June 27, total fare is US$321.15.

Avianca is also offering Cartagena (Colombia*) from San Jose starting at US$429.

Tickets can be purchased online at, or at Avianca customer service centres, at the airport and travel agencies.

There are a couple of things to note.

One, if you purchase your ticket in Costa Rica other than online there will be a US$25 surcharge. Our understanding this is not a surcharge by Avianca, but by the taxman.

Two, flying Avianca from San Jose to Miami is from 5 to 7 hours plus. Avianca does not have direct flights from San Jose to Miami, all flights requiring 1 or 2 stops, through its hub in El Salvador.

*For non Costa Rican nationals, travellers will need a yellow fever certificate to re-enter Costa Rica from Colombia. There is a 10 day incubation period, meaning you will have to plan your trip and obtain your fellow fever shot in advance of your trip to Colombia.

"Rico" is the crazy mind behind the Q media websites, a series of online magazines where everything is Q! In these times of new normal, stay at home. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
