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: Hike, Bike & Raft

Ka Ki · Traveled April 2024
A tour packed with adventures. Personal highlights were ziplining and canyoning (add-on activities). Rafting along the Pacuare River was somewhat disappointing, less exciting than expected, probably due to the lower water level in April. However, all in all a perfect trip for wildlife lovers and thrill seekers.

Costa Rica: Hike, Bike & Raft

Grace · Traveled April 2024
Lauren was the best guide, we had a blast! She told us all the tricks to maximize our experience, pointed out so many birds/sloths/other creatures, and welcomed us wholeheartedly into her culture. Loved the adventure activities, nature, and Pura Vida lifestyle we were privileged to live while on this trip!
