Costa Rica

This isn't the most expensive destination in the world during the high season, so it's no surprise it's a steal before peak spring travel season.

Travelocity is touting January airfare and hotel packages from New York for as little as $550 per person for four nights, while frozen travelers from the Chicago area can get a three-night stay for $680 and up.

Just don't expect the Costa Rica Tourism Board to lend much of a hand with promotions or deals. They know it's cold up here. They know it's a steady 81 degrees down there. They know the only reason you're not down there already is because you're recovering from the holidays. They're willing to wait.
