Why Costa Rica Vacations Are Best, By Both Land and Sea

Costa Rica’s vibrant underwater world is optimally explored from a small expedition ship or sailboat, with at least two opportunities daily to get off the ship via inflatable skiff, kayak, paddleboard or with a snorkel mask and fins. Costa Rica trips by both boat and eco lodge enter the rainforests of acclaimed national parks. But Costa Rica’s mountainous interior, including one of the world’s best wilderness lodges, is only reachable by a land tour. Let a Costa Rica Adventure Specialist help you see it all.

Custom Costa Rica Excursions

Visit Costa Rica via one of our scheduled small group Costa Rica tours, private independent tours or custom Costa Rica expeditions to capitalize on the best things to do in Costa Rica. Let an Adventure Specialist help you customize your trip to include a coastal cruise and inland adventures to see the best of Costa Rica—a diversity of environments, including neighboring Panama and Colombia.
