[FARE GONE] United – $207: Philadelphia / Dallas / Miami / Phoenix / St. Louis – Liberia, Costa Rica. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A significant price drop from Monday. There is availability for Winter travel. When there’s 15 inches of snow outside, you will be glad that you did now. Located in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, Liberia offers easy access to the beach, mountain and all types of outdoor adventures.

For those starting from Philadelphia, you can save a few bucks starting in ZFV (30th St. Amtrak Train Station) vs PHL (Philadelphia Int’l Airport). If you do take the ZFV option, you CANNOT skip the train portion at the start of your trip.

Per Fare Deal Alert – also available from Charlotte.
