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

Emma · Traveled February 2023
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip to costa rica and made some good friends whilst travelling in a group. Leo the tour leader was amazing. He was so friendly, professional and knew so much about the animals and the country. There are quite a few extra excursions which make the tour even better so make sure you budget for these and it turns out we pretty much paid for everything in dollars instead of costa rican colones so may be worth considering when buying travel money. All in all, it was a great trip and o would thoroughly recommend.

Costa Rica Experience

Ashley · Traveled February 2023
My first "solo" trip was to Costa Rica with Intrepid and it was an extremely well organized tour. We had the best guide, Leonardo Araya, and this itinerary hit all of the things I wanted to do in Costa Rica, including nature walks, zip lining, relaxation at the beach, and good food. One of the highlights was definitely the home-cooked meals at the homestay and with other local families along the way. Highly recommend Intrepid for the authentic, local experiences that you wouldn't get on your own or with other groups.

The flight via Denver was a nightmare but the trip, and especially our tour guide Leonardo, more than made up for it. His knowledge and enthusiasm were exceptional and nothing was too much trouble

The very trained eye of our guide Leo, made it possible to enjoy a wide variety of wildlife that would otherwise be missed. An amazing country with lots to see. A really great holiday destination and Intrepid does the country proud

Premium Costa Rica

Hollie · Traveled February 2023
This trip is a truly spectacular way to dive into Costa Rica - the country, the history, the people, the wildlife, the focus on environmental sustainability. You experience 4 different locations - each a unique window into the country which together provide a broad and in-depth experience. All of the included excursions are fantastic and the breadth of wildlife you see is awe inspiring. Five stars.
