Recently, I was able to fulfill a longtime calling to travel to Costa Rica on a photography trip. The plan came together quickly after I saw a special on airfare direct from Houston to San Jose, Costa Rica. I booked the flight before I even knew where I was staying, what I would be photographing or anything else that might resemble a plan. While this was rather spontaneous and uncharacteristic of me, it also led to one of the greatest photography trips that I have taken. I want to share my experience along with recommendations so that you too can go and enjoy Costa Rica. While I am happy with the pictures that I brought home, they pale in comparison to actually going to Costa Rica and sharing in the experience. I hope to return next year with my family so that everyone can enjoy.
The Flight to Costa Rica
Did you know that Southwest Airlines flies directly from Houston to San Jose, Costa Rica? When I received an email advertising a special on direct flights from Houston I hopped on the chance and booked my trip. The flight was just as a I come to expect from Southwest Airlines – No extra fees for for your first piece of checked luggage and the same comfort and level of customer service that have become the brand of Southwest Airlines.
The flight from Houston to San Jose, Costa Rica is only 3.5 hours, so before you know you it, you are off on your adventure. A pleasant surprise was that for an extra $8, they offer wifi on the flight!
