Costa Rica Tours & Vacations

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

Mira · Traveled February 2023
It was my first time in Costa Rica and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. It's hard to choose but for me the highlights were the Arenal Volcano, La Fortuna Waterfall, Manuel Antonio National Park, and Zip-lining through the cloud forest. Our guide Rafa was so enthusiastic, organized and knowledgeable! I learned a lot about Costa Rican history, culture, and wildlife. I highly recommend this tour!

Costa Rica Experience

The Original Costa Rica Experience was great! It was a good mix of culture, nature, and adventure. Our tour guide, Rafael, was top notch! His passion for his country, wildlife, and communities was stellar. I will definitely book with Intrepid in the future.

Costa Rica Experience

Allison · Traveled February 2023
I've done a bunch of Intrepid tours and this was another great one with a great group and tour guide, Rafa. I almost wish it was a little longer so we could have spent another day at the beach. The homestay in Pocosol was one of the highlights for me and I love that Intrepid includes these authentic experiences in their tours.
