Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

    • Tortuguero: Sloths. Howler monkeys. Volcanos. Jungle. This national park has everything you’d hope to see in Costa Rica. And more
    • Tortuguero: Hop on a boat and sail through wetlands on a quest to see native green turtles and rainbow-coloured birds.
    • Tortuguero: Even just the words ‘wilderness trail’ give us goosebumps, as we get psyched up to see the Costa Rican wildlife and landscapes.
    • Tortuguero: Discover more about the majestic sea turtles. And see the work that’s being done to give them a brighter future.
    • : Tortuguero is a coastal park of thicketed jungles, banana plantations and winding canals, stretching into the Caribbean sea. But it's most famous as a breeding ground for the green sea turtle. This adventure takes you along the winding canals, with plenty of time for hikes in lush surrounding jungles. You'll also get to visit a conservation centre and learn how the local community is protecting this precious reptile. But the trip's true showstopper is when you head to the beach with your local turtle ranger, to see the turtles in their natural habitat. It's strictly hands off, but it's also the kind of spine-tingling, life changing travel experience you'll remember forever.

    Top Costa Rica Attractions & Experiences

    Top Costa Rica Experiences

      Exploring miles of off-the-beaten-track beaches on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts

      Glimpsing rare tropical birds and butterflies on a rainforest hike

      Viewing both coasts from atop 11,200-foot Irazu volcano while gazing into massive craters that look like they were scooped out for some gargantuan ice cream cone.

      Cooling off in Monteverde Cloud Forest, one of the most beautiful forests in the world, while in search of monkeys, sloths, and other wildlife.

      Reveling in the colors of wildflowers and trees on a nature hike: orchids, bougainvillea, jacaranda, and flame and poro trees, which paint the landscape with purples, oranges and scarlets.

      Coming upon a forest waterfall and taking a dip in the waters below

      Relaxing in a secluded hot springs at Arenal Volcano National Park

      Partaking in Costa Rica's famous adventure activities: Riding a zipline high over a forest canopy, rappelling down a waterfall canyon, kayaking on a clear mountain lake -- or all three in one day.

      Reeling in a big catch on a sport fishing cruise in a quest for tuna, wahoo and marlin.

    Doris with Caradonna provided superior travel assistance and exceptional customer service. After the airline delayed our flight for our Christmas trip to go diving, having an experienced agent such as Doris to coordinate & communicate all the rescheduling of resort, air & vehicle was invaluable—& done in a personal, professional & timely manner that certainly exceeded expectations, including problem solving & guidance through to a successful refund when rescheduling just would not work.
