Costa Rica holidays

Tailor-made Costa Rica tours created for you by local experts

Our local partner based in Costa Rica

"We aim not only to offer you a perfectly organised tailor-made holiday in Costa Rica, but to also bring a personal touch and some Costa Rican warmth into our efforts to make your trip a special experience!"

Our local partner has been crafting tailor-made Costa Rican holidays since 1993, when they had just a fax machine and a telephone to work with. They were founded by Astrid, who came to Central America from Holland to finish writing her university thesis. Six months later, besotted with the country, she took her first steps in the travel industry and opened an agency in San Jose. The team is now made up of nearly 30 people, all of whom know every inch of this extraordinary country - there are no experts quite like local experts! In the last five years they have welcomed nearly 25,000 visitors to Costa Rica, and are ready and waiting to welcome you next. Our partner is an active member of CANAECO (Costa Rica's main ecotourism organisation) and like all companies on TravelLocal, they are locally-owned. All trips booked on the TravelLocal platform are 100% financially protected by ABTA, the UK's largest travel association, and all payments are handled in the UK. TravelLocal carefully selects each local travel company we work with so our clients can book safe in the knowledge that they are doing so with experienced, trusted and passionate experts in their destination.
