Costa Rica Travel Tips

Tropical rainforests, mountains and lush coastlines converge in this Central American gem.  Travelers will enjoy endless opportunities for exploration in Costa Rica, from the rich culture of San Jose to the abundant wildlife of Tortuguero National Park.  But getting around the country can be quite difficult at times, with dense rainforests and poor road conditions in some areas posting a challenge to independent travelers. Our guided tours of Costa Rica not only take you to the heart of the action to experience the highlights, they also take you up close and personal with the local people and traditions. You’ll enjoy enriching experiences like a visit to a family run palm plantation or a master chocolatier’s workshop.      

Highlights not to miss include Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest and Tortuguero National Park.  In July, travelers can opt to take a trip to see the sea turtles laying their eggs on the beach – an unforgettable experience!  And the pristine coastline of Guanacaste Beach offers sandy beaches and a chance for total relaxation after days of exploring.
