Launches New, Value-Priced LeisureScapes Resort Vacation Packages

Amazingly low prices on escorted trips to Europe & Costa Rica—as little as $79 a day.

Stafford, TX, June 13, 2008 --( Travelers who want to escape the cold this fall and winter can vacation in sunny spots in Europe and Costa Rica on LeisureScapes vacations for as low as $79 a day. Value-packed pricing includes accommodations, transportation, daily breakfast, sightseeing, services of a tour director and more.

The relaxed itineraries feature resort stays in warm-weather destinations: southern coastal locations in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Croatia as well as tropical Costa Rica. Vacations range from 13 to 22 days, and the pace is laid back.

A tour director or local host is on hand for participants throughout their trip, and city sightseeing tours or other excursions are included in each overnight locale.
