Calgary to Costa Rica | $409 roundtrip including taxes | other Central American countries for $20 more

A toucan in Costa Rica

United Airlines has just drastically dropped the price on a ton of their flights from Calgary to countries in Central America, including Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.

The date range with the cheaper flights appears to be between September and early December 2015.

When to go?

November and December are usually solid choices for Central America, steering clear of the rainy season. Even late October is likely a good choice.

How to find and book these flights

1. Start with a search on Google Flights

https://www.google.ca/flights/

^^ Not to be confused with Google Flights Explore. They're not showing up on Google Flights Explore ... yet.

2. In Google Flights, search for a flight from Calgary to one of the following destinations:

(prices are roundtrip, including taxes, in Canadian dollars)

Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR) $409
San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) $410
Guatemala City (GUA) $421
San Salvador, El Salvador (SAL) $426
Belize City, Belize (BZE) $429
Roatan, Honduras (RTB) $430
San Pedro Sula, Honduras (SAP) C$430
Tegucigalpa, Honduras (TGU) C$430
Panama City, Panama (PTY) $433
Managua, Nicaragua (MGA) $443

3. Once you've entered a destination into Google Flights, hit the little bar graph icon...


4. Now, near the bottom, adjust the length of the trip you're looking for. This will automatically adjust all of the available prices showing in the calendar view.


^^^ The prices shown here are in Canadian dollars.

4. When you see a price you like, click on it. The rest is pretty straight-forward. Keep clicking until you get to the page with the 'Book with United' button.


When you click on the price ($409 in this case), it will take you to the United website to complete your booking.

If you have any troubles booking on United.com with a Canadian credit card, I would suggest taking the same dates and destination that you found on Google Flights, and trying your search manually over at www.united.ca - which may work better.

Open Jaws (flying into one city, and out of another)

You may be able to find similar fares flying into one of the cities listed above, and out of another.

example: into Belize City (BZE) and out of Panama City (PTY).

Calgary to Costa Rica - $416 roundtrip after tax

I tend to take notice when there's a flight to Central America that's less than 50% of what it usually costs. Especially when it's to a country as awesome as Costa Rica, with volcanoes, toucans, monkeys, and zip-lines through cloud forests.
