Is there anyone travelling south this winter ?

With that cold air coming from the North Pole
I have no difficulty dreaming of the south sunny flower

Tell us about your trips (past, present or future) please.

I am planning a trip to Costa Rica next winter.
If you've done it, please share your findings !

Hi

Nice to hear you are planning a trip to costa rica. I have never been there myself, but I hear it is fantastic. Good luck with the planning!

I go south every winter. My mom is a snow bird. I get to visit whenever I want...
I have a friend in fort myers, I visit her when I am in florida visiting my mom. A couple of years ago myself, my mom and my best friend went on a cruise to the Bahamas. I loved it. I am hoping to do it again soon..
I have been to bahamas 2 times, florida 16 years now, Hawaii, Mexico, England, France, Lake Tahoe to go skiing, train trip across canada, british columbia twice, down east. I am a person who loves to travel. Travel is always in the back of my mind. There is soooo much to see and do..

I leave in mid march. Can't wait

Very Happy

Hi Paradsa

I forgot to tell you where I get decent prices for travel...

Last July I stayed in a Hilton hotel in Seattle Washington with 2 family members and the price was about $72.00 a night, for the 3 of us... I found this rate on hotwire.com. I checked the website for the same hotel and the fee was about $220.00 a night. I would recomend this website...
I always book my car rental for my trips to florida through 1 of the following..Expedia, or Travelocity. Normally I rent for a 2 or 3 week period. Last year I had to go to the airport during my vacation, so I checked how much it would cost to return the car at that time and rent another for the duration of my stay. It was cheaper to do it that way.. I saved about $80.00
This year I am doing the same. I am renting for 8 days, returning that car and renting another car for 7 days. All in the same car category. It does not make sense to me but hell, the money is better in my pocket. I will save about $95.00.
I takes time to search but sometimes it is worth it.. I usually fly with my air miles.

Hope this helps with your plans for costa rica
