While Spain named it "Rich Coast" for the gold they found, tiny Costa Rica has become a tourist treasure, especially for the outdoor enthusiast, offering both beautiful resorts and adventure travel opportunities. Go whitewater rafting, trek through the rainforest, climb a volcano, snorkel or fish. Then there are the beaches on both the Pacific and Caribbean, separated by just 75 miles of narrow peninsula.

Just wanted to thank Friendly Planet for a great trip to Costa Rica. We will definitely be planning more trips using FP...Thank you!
My husband and I just returned from a 9 day tour to Costa Rica. I can't say enough nice things about how the trip was planned, the guides and the wonderful people of Costa Rica. To say we enjoyed those 9 days is an understatement. We will certainly use Friendly Planet for our next vacation.
