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.

Costa Rica Experience

Anthony · Traveled May 2024
The Costa Rica Experience trip was an excellent experience. It lived up to all expectations of what I was hoping to do and see, including seeing many iconic birds and animals. Rafael’s knowledge and enthusiasm for Costa Rica showed and we all learned so much from him during the trip.

Costa Rica Experience

Leon · Traveled May 2024
Great overall trip, great guide in Rafael, good balance between nature (landscape and wildlife) and culture (homestay for instance). Do take into account that a lot of the excursions are optional, so add a few hundred dollars to the stated price if you want to have a good itinerary. This gives more flexibility however.

Premium Costa Rica

Emily · Traveled April 2024
The Premium Costa Rica trip was so much fun. It was the perfect length of time and we were able to travel to 3 different areas of Costa Rica which allowed us to see a variety of landscapes, wildlife, and lifestyles. Our guide, Liza, was very kind, knowledgeable, and friendly.
