i am looking into booking my tripto Costa Rica. the cheapest i found was with Copa Airlines. i tried to register with their site and they only allow a US Puerto Rico phone number. is this airline not for Gringos? they are allied with Continental airlines so i think they want us yanks to pay more through Continental. does anyone know?

Hmmmm... not sure. I tried searching their site to find any information and couldn't. Is it necessary to give a phone number? I looked at their registration form and it didn't have asterisks by the phone number.

Anyone else?

I didn't but I'm thinking that you're likely going to be a bit better off on American, Delta or Continental directly into San Jose. But I'd also check out what airlines you can catch into Liberia in the northwest part of the country. When I go back, I'll avoid SJ all together and go straight into Liberia. But flights there aren't as frequent as Juan Santamaria. (The airport is actually in Alajuela, which is about 15-20 minutes from San Jose Central.)

Have you checked www.mobissimo.com? It searches all the airlines, and the Travelocity-type sites.

Also, Mexicana IIRC codeshares with TACA who flies all over Central and South America.
