Costa Rica Tours & Holidays

Jungle jaunts and coastal escapades in a tropical paradise - introducing your new amigo, Costa Rica.

An adventure hotspot for some, and a cultural haven for others, Central America's Costa Rica definitely lives up to its translation as the ‘rich coast’. And as you journey under lush jungle canopies, along the golden coastline and laidback surf towns, you’ll soon be rich with memorable experiences. You could become a pro at spotting toucans in Monteverde’s steamy cloud forests or listen out for the distant whoop of white-faced capuchins in Corcovado, but really, it’s the pace of life here that gets you. The phrase ‘hustle and bustle’ isn’t in Costa Rica’s vocabulary; as you’d expect from a country whose unofficial motto is ‘pura vida’ – the pure life.

Costa Rica Experience

Demitria · Traveled September 2023
Costa Rica Experience is such a wonderful trip and I’d highly recommend to anyone who wants wildlife viewing, adventure tourism and “local” travel all rolled into one! Our guide Rafa was so knowledgeable and energetic. You could tell how proud he was of his home country!

Central American Journey

Katherine · Traveled August 2023
This trip is an excellent way to see less-visited countries and have the opportunity to do once-in-a-lifetime activities, like volcano sandboarding. It is extremely fast with a lot of time spent on the road, so be prepared that the time spent seeing the people and landscapes from the window of a bus is part of the trip itself. Accommodations are extremely basic but hopefully the selected locations are improved by Intrepid in the future.
