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

Michael · Traveled March 2024
The Costa Rice Experience was incredible - its a beautiful country, full of rich culture and food. I really enjoyed that there were so many different options we could choose from, whether it was with the whole group or separately. Also, our tour guide, Marvin, was super cool and knowledgeable. I cannot recommend this trip enough.

Costa Rica Experience

Emily · Traveled March 2024
This trip goes through several parts of Costa Rica, showing off the country's diversity. The included and add on optional activities were excellent, and our guide, Marvin, was amazing. Would highly recommend this trip. The homestay was a definite highlight, and something you can't really do travelling on your own.

Classic Costa Rica

Christian · Traveled March 2024
Our guide Aura displayed unprofessionalism on our Intrepid trip and was disappointing. Mismanaged itinerary, misleading activity explanations, and dismissive attitude left us frustrated. Avoid Aura if you seek a smooth and enjoyable tour experience. I chose this tour because of the good reviews but you take a risk getting a good guide.
