FROM SPAIN TO COSTA RICA

PREVIOUS / NEXT

TRAVELS by KRISS on 15 november 2015

FROM SPAIN TO COSTA RICA Ok, I have to admit on that one that we could have cut down the length of our journey probably by half by taking a direct flight from Madrid to San Jose with Iberia.
But we took the cheapest option which was flying through Miami and I don’t know if we made the right choice.

Yes it’s true our flight to Miami was half empty and I won’t complain about that but we the stop in the USA means you will have to clear US customs even if you’re just transiting.
And this is really long and tiresome ! Besides, we had to add the extra cost of the hotel for the night in Miami, it wasn’t as bad as the direct plane ticket to San Jose but still an extra cost.


And what I hadn’t planned was the lack of time to actually get anything to eat, I personally skipped 4 meals during our journey and I am thankful we packed plenty of dried fruits in the bags and I never really got hungry.
Food in Miami airport is just, well first American, and second expensive as hell.
All put together, it may be actually a good idea to take a direct flight.

Then there is of course the length of the bus journey (see the previous post) to wherever you are going in Costa Rica and it might be the most exhausting part of your journey.
It was for Kate and the kids anyways ! So if I get the calculus right :

- We left Nerja at exactly 8.30 am on thursday morning.
We arrived at Puerto Viejo at exactly 8.30 pm on friday night.

Let’s add 6 hours of different time zone and we get :

36 + 6 = 42 hours

That’s exactly how long it took us to travel from Nerja, Spain to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica
