Toronto to Guatemala or Costa Rica - $374 CAD roundtrip including taxes


Avianca has dropped the price of their flights from Toronto to Guatemala down to $256 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Actually, that's not quite true. Avianca doesn't include any carry-on luggage in their base fares which allows their prices to appear significantly cheaper than they really are in major search engines.

You need to add around $120 CAD roundtrip to their prices for a more realistic comparison against other airlines.

For a true comparison against other airlines, Avianca's flights to Guatemala have dropped down to $374 CAD roundtrip.

The November dates are the most desirable, as November is the onset of dry season for Guatemala. In October there can occasionally be showers for a few hours in the afternoon. The rain typically tends to taper off by mid-October.

The flights have one stop in El Salvador each way.

You can also find flights from Toronto to San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) for $59 CAD more roundtrip.

UPDATE: Toronto to Guatemala is still available for $279 CAD roundtrip (base price). Toronto to San Jose, Costa Rica is $48 more.
