The US dollar ain’t what it used to be. CNN Money.com did a recent article on getting the most for your vacation dollar by vacationing where the dollar is strong. They had Costa Rica listed as #3…this is what they said:

Incredibly, Americans now have about a third more buying power in this natural wonderland than they did five years ago — a dollar equals around 500 Costa Rican colones today vs. 360 then.

You can explore beaches good for surfing, then go snorkeling in coral reef-filled bays.Don’t miss the rainforests, which teem with wildlife — including rare quetzals with spectacular plumage.

They forgot to mention that we have world class fishing in Costa Rica.

Here is an example of some airfare values to Costa Rica.
