Costa Rica Tours

Lush, wildly exotic, and brimming with off-the-beaten-path adventures. Costa Rica is known as the 'rich coast' for good reason. In this small Central American country, you'll find palm-dotted beaches, active volcanoes, mist-cloaked cloud forests, and dense mangrove swamps. Costa Rica is also one of the world's most biodiverse countries' home to half a million species of wildlife, ranging from endangered monkeys and sloths to scarlet macaws and red-eyed tree frogs.

Ready to explore this ecological Eden? With the opportunity for jungle hikes, canopy walks, ziplining, river tubing, and horseback rides, our small group Costa Rica tours bring endless adventure to a breathtaking travel experience.

Where To Go In Costa Rica
Our small group Costa Rica tours will show you the highlights of this captivating country. Hike through cloud forests enveloped by mist, listen to the squawk of scarlet macaws on a jungle river cruise, sprawl beneath a swaying palm on a pristine white beach, and enjoy Costa Rica's laid-back pura vida way of living.

 

San Jose
Bustling San Jose might not win first prize in the beauty stakes, but Costa Rica’s largest city has plenty of attractions, including modern art galleries, historic neighborhoods, and vibrant clubs.
Rincon de la Vieja
Known as “Costa Rica's Yellowstone", this 34,000-acre park bubbles with mud pools, hot springs and an active volcano. Enjoy endless outdoor activities and the park’s mind-blowing ecological diversity.
Tortuguero
Unmissable for wildlife lovers, this huge coastal park is one of Costa Rica's most important turtle-nesting grounds. The park’s network of canals and dense jungle are also teeming with wildlife.
Arenal
Home to a long-dormant volcano, Arenal is a rugged playground for adventure-seekers. Fill your days with hiking, forest ziplining, and horseback rides before indulging in a volcanic hot spring soak.
Quepos
Quepos is the gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park — a paradise of unspoiled beaches, tropical rainforest and miles of hiking trails. Search for the park’s wildlife, including sloths and toucans.
Monteverde
Get a full dose of Costa Rica’s natural beauty in Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Shrouded in mist, this staggeringly biodiverse preserve includes 2,500 plant species and 400 kinds of birds.
Frequently Asked Questions
+
Do you need a visa to travel to Costa Rica?

Travellers from the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Ireland, and most European nations do not need a visa for trips to Costa Rica when staying for up to 90 days.

+
Is Costa Rica safe?

Costa Rica is regarded as one of the safest countries in Latin America. That said, petty crimes (such as pickpockets and bag snatchings) are common and muggings do happen, especially in San José and other larger cities. Be extra vigilant around markets and bus terminals and keep your belongings close to hand.

+
When is the best time to visit Costa Rica?

The best time to visit Costa Rica is either in November, April (after Easter) or May. During these months, the rains have either just begun or subsided, leaving the country looking at its most lush. There are also relatively few tourists at these times, leaving the national parks quieter and the wildlife watching more relaxed and enjoyable.

 

Name:
Andres Fernandez

EDUCATION:
Communication and Psychology.

LANGUAGE:
English, Spanish and French (after living in Belgium for 5 years).

TOURS LED:
Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Cuba, Poland, the Baltic States, Portugal, Spain and Morocco.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
I love travelling in Central America. The natural history is astounding, all the birds, mammals, flora and fauna! As a certified diver and avid sportsman, the area offers many opportunities for diving, kayaking and rafting.

ABOUT:
Growing up in an international environment allowed me to interact with people from different cultures and learn from them. I would say that's when I became a traveler...

To me, traveling is not only about the sites and highlights of a destination, it's mostly about the people and their history, about how they solve things. It's about their lives!

Name:
Chris Tripodi

EDUCATION:
University for Mathematics. College for Music. But the greatest education I've received has come from Earth while travelling. "Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled."

LANGUAGE:
I can ask 'Where is the toilet?' in 57 languages.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
80%. I need a new passport every 20 months.

TOURS LED:
West Africa to South Africa, El Salvador to Argentina, Samoa to Seychelles, Portugal to Romania, Jordan to Japan.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Departures hall.

ABOUT:
I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another.

Name:
Sierra Searing

EDUCATION:
Bachelor of International Business with a Minor in Spanish. The degree also included spending a year studying abroad in Chile.

LANGUAGE:
English, Spanish, and some French & German.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
Sierra has travelled through 44 countries on 5 continents. She has hiked through jaw-dropping Iceland, slept in an old prison off the coast of Colombia, befriended a rescued kinkajou in the highland jungle of Panama, been stung by a jellyfish in Sri Lanka, feasted on the delectable street food of Georgetown, Malaysia, and camped alongside guanacos in Patagonia.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
This is Sierra's least favourite question. It is impossible to choose between the mystery and serenity of Peru, the spectacular wildlife sightings of South Africa, and the impossible construction of Meteora, Greece. She enjoys every destination in its own unique way and has yet to find a country she didn’t fall in love with.

ABOUT:
Sierra's dream in life is to explore every corner of the globe. When not travelling (and also while travelling), she loves the outdoors, wildlife, and photography and spends most weekends hiking, no matter the season or weather.

Name:
Victor Romagnoli

EDUCATION:
HBA English BA History

LANGUAGE:
Being able to speak several languages has made travelling an enriching experience; the conversations one can so easily slip into with locals - who come from all walks of life - adds greatly to my feel for a place.

TOURS LED:
Over a span of almost 30 years, I have lead tours virtually all over the globe.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Some of my favourite tours just come into being suddenly as a result of a request; someone will ask me to put together an itinerary that will include the highlights of several countries and the next thing you know we have, for example, a tour to Uruguay, Paraguay & Bolivia, or Lesotho, Namibia & Botswana. Sometimes I will be asked to arrange a detailed itinerary to just one region within a country - like a close up look at Sicily or Crete or the Basque Country or Newfoundland. Without the keen curiosity that so many of you travellers have, none of these "spontaneous" tours would come into being. But they do.

ABOUT:
I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey.
