Costa Rica Vacations

The following trips combine the natural wonders of Costa Rica with worry-free travel, making them an easy vacation choice. Escorted tours feature the services of a guide who leads your group and provides insight into the various destinations. Independent vacations combine airfare and hotel accommodations and allow you to explore on your own. Both types of packages will save you money, as tour operators lock in low hotel and air rates well in advance of travel.

Waterfalls, volcanoes and wildlife await in Costa Rica, and the splendid natural beauty of this Central American country is part of every travel experience. White-sand beaches border lush rain forests, where guided hikes might reveal turtles, toucans, scarlet macaws and howler monkeys. Itineraries typically visit Tortuguero National Park, dedicated to the protection of endangered turtles, and Poas Volcano, with a massive crater that cradles a beautiful deep-green lake.

If you seek a taste of adventure, Costa Rica has plenty of options, from walking or hiking tours to zip-line jaunts through jungle canopy. Shopping excursions, scenic drives and relaxing boat rides also are among the many activities you will find on these getaways.
