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.

Our trip was amazing, we saw birds, animals, cloud forests, community lifestyles, and a good glimpse of the country. Our guide, Marvin, made the trip as good as it was.

Costa Rica Experience

This really was an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide -Allan possessed great knowledge about the destination and he was able to provide us with fascinating insights about the local culture, history, and geography. Moreover, his passion for wildlife and biodiversity was amazing ans he made sure to point out every single plant or animal that we encountered along the way. Thanks to Allan I feel like I learned so much about Costa Rica, so I highly recommend this tour to anyone considering visiting this amazing country! This will be a special trip for sure!

Allan (AA) was a fantastic tour leader who was kind, patient, fun and very knowledgeable. I was amazed by how much wildlife we saw with the help of Allan and his expertise. The Costa Rica Experience trip had so many highlights. I have fallen in love with Costa Rica and definitely wish to return to see more.

Fabulous tour to see a lot of Costa Rica. Trip is quite full on as it packs a lot in. Accommodation is functional. Pedro, our guide, was amazing and because of him we saw so much wildlife. Will look to use Intrepid again.
