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.
