Popular flights from Costa Rica

Flyers can board a plane in San Jose, and 20 minutes later be landing in the delightful La Fortuna (FON). This small town is one of the most popular destinations in the country, and this is because of its access to the Arenal Volcano National Park. Trek your way through the thermal landscape of hot springs, active volcanoes and crater lakes for a chance at seeing some of Costa Rica’s most stunning terrain.

In five hours or so, you can fly to Toronto (YYZ), Canada’s most happening city; where the Royal Ontario Museum beckons visitors to learn about the nation’s history, as does the quirky Casa Loma, a castle built in the early 1900s by an eccentric millionaire. Of course, you don’t have to spend all your time in museums, with Lake Ontario right at your doorstep, travellers to Toronto can put on their bathers and go paddle boarding, kayaking, or fishing.

In 10 hours, you can find yourself wandering the streets of London (LHR) where visitors can tour Buckingham Palace, shop down Oxford Street, see the city from the London Eye, and eat strawberries and cream on the green grass of Hyde Park.
