Flights from Manchester UK

Dear Forum

Could anyone advise me on the best way to get to Costa Rica from Manchester UK.

I am looking to go at the start of March and your advice would be most welcome.

Many thanks

Alex

Also take a look here http://matrix.itasoftware.com/search.htm At this website, you can see a calendar of the lowest fares for every day of the month.

In addition to Cheapflights, check Expedia and Kayak. Some websites will allow you to set up to get an email notice if the price of the flight you are interested in changes.

Well, in that case . . . .

. . . .me and my girlfriend are looking to stay a week at the Lands in Love Hotel up in the mountains and a week in or around Montezuma, where we hope to volunteer at the Rainsong Sanctuary, however, we have not started looking for accommodation there yet, so if there's anywhere you could recommend, that would be fantastic.

We are not after luxury, just a wonderfully different experience.

Many thanks again

Alex

Nice to hear that Alex...Lands in love is a unique place by San Lorenzo Cloud Forest...incredible nice people, among many good things they love animals...and I do have a lot of respect for the dedication they have for our animals...

Montezuma is a very interesting area...maybe if you can give some kind of idea about budget per night...in that way we all can help you in the best possible and respectfull way!

OP, you might consider a flight to Miami, then find a cheap shuttle to San Jose. I have friends from Belgium who used 3 different airlines and found it was cheaper that way. Perhaps your local licensed travel agent can put something together as a combination that could save you some cash.

Have a safe flight.

Definitely take Kirsten's advice about Rainsong. Many volunteers have had big problems there.
