Q&A: What is the cheapest way to fly to from Illinois to Costa Rica?
Question by Paul N: What is the cheapest way to fly to from Illinois to Costa Rica?
I’m going to Costa Rica for school in August and am wondering the cheapest way to do it, I live 2 hours from O’Hare and 2 hours from Milwaukee also. Thanks for the help!!

Your best bet is to go out of O’Hare.
For August, Sprirt has a $ 442 fare, but after the seat charges and carry-on charges are added in, it will be $ 540.
Personally, I would go with Taca Airlines. It’s a very good airline that’s always on time and provides good customer service. They are $ 520 and you get free carry on and up to 2 checked bags (50lbs each). They have a very young fleet (no 40 year planes like AA). And their newest planes have individual back-of-the-seat TV’s. You get a FREE hot meal and FREE drinks (including alcoholic). It’s only a 1 hour layover in San Salvador or Guatemala. Total travel time is only about 7 hours.
The next best would be Continental for $ 537 through Houston. Also an excellent airline.
