Best way to get there –

There are more options of  flying  to Costa Rica today without using US Airlines. I booked Aeromexico that offers daily service from JFK and other US Cities to San Jose through the Mexico City terminal. Aeromexico surpassed my expectations with newer, more roomier planes, higher standard of service and complimentary full meal/beverage for every travel class. Best of all my Aeromexico flight was on time a big PLUS since I have a history of flight delays with US airlines. Want more of an enhanced flight experience? Aeromexico Clase premier offers 180-degree full flat bed reclining seats, more legroom, fine cuisine, wifi and personal on-demand access entertainment system.  


Aeromexico Salon Premier in Mexico was recently updated with spa, private relaxation spaces and showers totalling 10 lounges within Mexico. Salon Premier offers VIP experience complete with professionals ready to help you relax with complimentary food/beverages/magazines/fax service/Wifi/flight monitor and phones making it easy to wait in comfort for a connecting flight.
