Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful and naturally-diverse countries in Central America. From lush tropical rainforests filled with rich biodiversity to picturesque white-sand beaches with great surfing and diving, Costa Rica is a natural paradise. On this tour, we’ll do a bit of everything, from hiking in the wilderness to going wildlife spotting to sitting on the beach to visiting waterfalls and staying with local families.
The diverse ecosystems of Costa Rica have led the country to become a beloved ecotourism destination, with never-ending adventure activities, gorgeous beaches, abundant wildlife, delicious food, and friendly people. Combine all of that with the relaxed, “pura vida” pace of life, it’s no wonder Costa Rica is always high up on people’s lists of favorite countries.
Using our local connections and deep experience here, we’re going to showcase not only the natural beauty of the country but also the people. You’ll meet locals who will explain what it’s like to live in the region, gain insights into the food and culture of the country, see tons of wildlife, do lots of hiking, and enjoy some time on the country’s famous beaches. We’re going to show you what makes this country so special!
This tour is for people looking to see more than just the famous sites— it’s for travelers who want to understand the region’s culture, history, and food more deeply.
If you’re the kind of person who wants a more authentic and nuanced experience, this tour is for you.
Our lead researcher, Sam, will be on this tour with you too!
