Costa Rica & Guatemala in £300/£400s return from all over the UK (KLM/Air France)

KLM and Air France look to have dropped their Central America bound flights on scattered dates throughout high season!

Costa Rica and Guatemala seem to have the most convenient routes and best fares, but there are also reduced options to less visited destinations like Nicaragua & Honduras (though those do include long layovers). Also a couple of options to Costa Rica returning after XMAS included too (example below) and some Easter options to Guatemala like this one from Birmingham at £347 return.

If flying from London, don't forget that British Airways' annual sale has substantially reduced their direct Costa Rica route from Gatwick as well, if you prefer to fly non-stop.

Here's how to book:

1. Head to Google Flights and use their handy calendar tool to find the best travel dates for your route, by locating the dates with the lowest fares. Then follow the link directly to the airline to book (note: Air France's website sometimes shows the fares £20 less than KLM).

Notes: Google flights' calendar will always display fares for the exact trip length you've originally entered. So if you enter a one week trip as your first search, the calendar tool will keep showing you fares for one week trips departing each day, so make sure to set this setting correctly.

I've found the dates available are quite scattered, but they're the same for the majority of the routes. There are others, but I recommend starting by entering one of the dates below as your departure date (they seem to work for
most routes) and then letting the calendar tool load the available matching return dates at the deal price.

Example departure dates for San Jose:
  • Nov 4, 6, 11, 13, 14, 24-27
  • Dec 10, 11
  • March 27 - 29
  • May 11, 12, 19, 25, 26
Example departure dates for Guatemala:
  • Nov 12
  • Feb 25, 26
  • March 4-6, 16, 17, 19, 20, 25-27
  • April 10, 14-18, 21, 26, 30
  • May 1 - 22 (most dates work)
