If you find a price that works for you, make sure you book quickly as the number of seats at these prices you need to book in the next one or two days!

If you don’t plan on traveling to Costa Rica at this time, you can also check next year. from anywhere between January and September, as these fares can be found sporadically, so potentially, there are alot of options available with these prices.

These rates are the base fare so their may be (i.e. probably will be) extra charges for luggage, seats etc. You should also check other airports that may be closer to where you live as lower-than-normal fares may also be available from there.

If you do book you may want to also look into getting travel insurance in case something unforeseen should happen and you need to cancel or change your dates of travel.

Keep in mind that most of these cheap fares may not be direct flights (especially from the smaller airports) and could include a stop.

Use a website like Google Flights or Expedia to look around and find the cheapest dates and prices. If all the prices are the same you may want to consider booking your flights directly with the airlines as if there are cancellations or delays, talking with the airline directly is much easier.

Some of the airlines that currently offer flights between the United States to either San Jose (SJO) or Liberia (LIR) Costa Rica are: Avianca, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, American Airlines, JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier and Southwest.
