EgyptHotDeals.com vacation packages feature the Temples of Abu Simbel in their itineraries.

The Temples of Abu Simbel were built over 3200 years by the Pharoah Ramses II to commemorate his victory over the Hittites. The 2 Temples were built by the Nile River in Upper Egypt bordering Sudan, The Larger Temple dedicated to Ramses II as God is 98 feet high and 115 feet wide. The Interior Temples are dedicated to his wife Nefertari. Both Temples were aligned in such an ingenious way that the Sun light penetrates the Great Temple to the Status of Ramses twice a year to coincide with his Birth and Coronation date. Such an achievement can only be surpassed with the construction of the Great Pyramids in Cairo built around 5000 years ago that took over 20 years to complete with thousands of slaves. In 1960 The Egyptian Government built the Aswan High Dam, which resulted in a United Nations effort to remove the Temples 210 feet up to a new plateau at a cost exceeding 50 million dollars allocated by UNESCO for this project.

Do you know these important facts about Costa Rica?

Do you know about Costa Rica's Little Dry Season or Indian Summer? It's called El Veranillo de San Juan and it is a weather phenomenon, interrupting the green season (rainy season) for one month of glorious summer like weather. This phenomenon occurs between June and July so it's a great time to take advantage of prime weather with low season prices!

More than 80% of visitors will include the region of Arenal in their trip. Get to know our most popular tour that includes this region.
The Liberia International Airport (LIR) may have slightly higher fares than into San Jose (SJO), but it saves 5 hours of driving time or a 45 minute domestic flight with a $100 pp cost to consider. 
 
Many offers you receive from big name companies are not designed or operated by them. They resell. The Sunny Land San Jose Office is your direct connection! It makes us stand out among the rest by delivering accurate and efficient service to you during the booking process and 24 hour concierge serve to guests during their visit to Costa Rica.
