Avianca – $319: Washington D.C. – San Jose, Costa Rica. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Yesterday’s deal from DC was to/from San Jose, California. It is fitting that today’s deal is to San Jose, Costa Rica. We are entering a lull for deals as we approach the 4th of July weekend — deal choices are limited.

This fare does not meet our 6 cents per mile criterion. We are posting because its either this or more deals we have done to the Middle East / Central Asia / Africa (which you guys will see in the next few days). This is also the lowest we have found a deal to San Jose, Costa Rica since January 1st, 2014 when Aeromexico had a flash sale for $280.
