Costa Rica Tours & Holidays

Biodiverse, brilliantly colourful and naturally breathtaking, Costa Rica embraces a slower pace of life.

An adventure hotspot for some, a cultural haven for others and a tropical paradise for most, Costa Rica definitely lives up to its translation as the ‘rich coast’. And as you journey under lush jungle canopies and through laidback surf towns, you’ll soon be rich with memorable experiences. Lean into the slower pace of life as you become a pro at spotting toucans in Monteverde’s steamy cloud forests or listening out for the distant whoop of white-faced capuchins in Manuel Antonio. 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.

Best of Costa Rica

Karen · Traveled May 2024
Visiting Costa Rica is undoubtedly one of the most memorable and exciting experiences I’ve had. There is beauty everywhere, from the lush green of forests, cloud forests, volcanoes , spectacular beaches and extraordinary flowers. Wildlife abounds, sloths ,monkeys, lizards, birds with spectacular plumage to mention only a few. Our Best of Costa Rica trip had an incredible leader Allan, and teamed with an exciting and varied itinerary including involvement with Indigenous communities made this trip perfect!!

If you want to visit Costa Rica, I promise you will not find a better guide than we had for our "Best of Costa Rica" trip through Intrepid. If you are on the fence this is the one to book! Best guide I've ever had! Learned so much and fell in love with the country through his enthusiasm! Thanks Allan!
