Costa Rica Tours & Vacations

Biodiverse, brilliantly colorful 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

Janelyn Jade · Traveled April 2024
This trip was the first Intrepid tour I have been on, and it was honestly life changing. Not only have I met amazing people/friends on this trip, but I had the opportunity to indulge in a countries culture to the fullest. I enjoyed all the adventure and culture that I experienced on this trip and highly recommend it to everyone. Not only did I feel well prepared for day to day activities, but I always felt safe. Sofi was also an AMAZING guide and was able to accommodate our group with everything. This will definitely not be my last intrepid tour!!

Costa Rica Experience

Sasha · Traveled April 2024
Our Tour Leader Sofi did an excellent job of getting our travel group to bond + giving us a solid breakdown of what to expect during our trip. She was knowledgable and always amiable. In many cases, she went out of her way to go above and beyond for the group. Five stars.

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.

Classic Costa Rica

Anita · Traveled April 2024
This is a great trip. We had an amazing guide in Rafa, he made it extra special. You really need to book extra activities to make the most of the trip which can be pricey. Include this in your budget.
