Costa Rica

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.

Rave Reviews

I can't say enough good things about your company’s efficiency, friendliness & helpfulness in answering all my pre-trip questions. Your air department was very helpful in rescheduling and making the connections as convenient as possible. Our guide Luis was tremendous. He went overboard to make sure everyone was well informed and able to participate in all activities they wanted to do. His knowledge of the area, culture, birds, animals and plants was extensive. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

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.
