After we decided to move to Costa Rica, it was necessary to plan the route.
I searched for flights through Skyscanner – there you can see the information about the flight very clearly. If you choose the route “Ekaterinburg – San Jose”, it becomes obvious that you need to get to Moscow first.
We decided to get to the capital by train, since it is two times cheaper than by plane. And only then fly.
We found several routes: through Switzerland, America, Madrid, Frankfurt. We did not have an American visa, so the flight with a transfer to the US was immediately ruled out.
The remaining options were considered in detail and found out the following:
* prices for different dates are very different, and you can save a lot if you choose the right day of departure;
* If you divide the route into two parts, the price goes down;
* It happens that round-trip ticket costs as well as one-way ticket;
* on some days, airlines offer shares.
To choose a suitable route, you need to look for longer and check various options. In our case, the most budgetary way to get
to Costa Rica turned out with the airline Condor through the Dominican Republic with a transfer in Frankfurt.
You can buy tickets on Skyscanner, but we did it in order to save
on the official website of the airline, which was found. In the same place we got acquainted
with the requirements for the weight of luggage and services included in the price. Buy tickets online with a bank card on the site of the company Condor did not cause any difficulties. The paid tickets came to the post in electronic form,
we printed them out and translated the instructions for ourselves.
It is very important: in order to be admitted to Costa Rica, it is necessary to have a return ticket or ticket to another country with the date of departure from Costa Rica more than a month. You can choose any country: for example, neighboring Nicaragua or Panama, book or buy tickets there. We just booked.
Tickets for the train to Moscow we bought also online at the official website of RZD.
As a result, a little more than $ 500 per person was spent.
As you can see, it is very easy to find and buy tickets without leaving home.
