The weekend I was searching for flights down to Costa Rica (SJC) and found fares sub ~$250 from New York (JFK), DC (DCA) and Tampa (TPA). This is a great opportunity for a last minute family vacation over the Labor Day weekend and a great use of those voluntary bump vouchers.

How to Find the Flights
I found the flights using ITA Software month long search for 6-8 nights. First log into the ITA site. Then select the month long search option. Specify the departure airport (DCA, JFK, TPA) how many nights you’d like to stay. Then select the starting time of the month you’d like to search. For my example I chose August 15th for 6-8 nights departing from DC (DCA) to Costa Rica (SJC). The search results show a flight leaving on September 2nd returning on September 9th for $240 all in Delta.
This is a good fare to Costa Rica for a last minute vacation this summer. If you combine this flight with the Starwood free night weekend awards or the Intercontinental free night awards it could turn out to be a very cost effective trip.
