About our Costa Rica Travel Agency


Our Mission: To Create Lifelong Memories
Through The Joy of Travel


Sound too good to be true? Hear what customers have to say.

Our team of local experts design custom vacations to Costa Rica. Living and working full-time here in Costa Rica means that we understand the country, including its quirks, intimately. We utilize our years of collective knowledge, along with our proven process for identifying each guest’s “travel personality”, to design a custom vacation that will exceed your expectations.

But it doesn’t stop there. When you arrive in-country, our support team is on-call 24/7 to ensure your trip goes off flawlessly. If you have a question, need a restaurant reservation, or if some hitch arises, we’re here for you.

Perfect Trips Tailored to Your Travel Personality

We believe that everyone has a unique “travel personality”, so one-size-fits-all packages are something we DO NOT offer.

Instead, we get to know our customers, then match them up with the destinations, hotels, and activities that we think will delight their individual tastes. It is this prideful craftsmanship and total commitment to guest satisfaction that makes our vacations unforgettable.

Seamless & Easy Vacation Planning

Every day we come to work, it is our goal to take the stress out of vacation planning. We want you to invest your time dreaming about your trip while we do the grunt work to ensure it’s a success. Just answer a few short questions, and we’ll design a vacation that you will never forget.

Our staff is a fun and quirky team of expats and Costa Ricans who live and work full-time in Costa Rica. We love our job and have the pleasure of regularly visiting all of the hotels and experiencing the tours and activities we recommend. We take great pride in how our work creates lifelong memories for our guests.

Our Story as a Costa Rica Travel Agency

Our travel agency started when two recent college grads met in Costa Rica via a fateful “roommate wanted” ad back in 1998. As roommates, they found they shared a passion for travel.

In 1999, this led them to launch a website that evolved into Costa Rican Vacations. With a pitiful amount of start-up cash, an unreliable dial-up Internet connection, and a large supply of ramen noodles, they built an email newsletter offering Costa Rica travel tips.

Soon they began making reservations on behalf of their readers. Seeing an opportunity, they launched an online agency offering Costa Rica vacation packages.

When we set out to build the best travel agency in Costa Rica, our aim was simple: to treat each guest like an old friend.

Since our founding, we have delivered more than 25,000 vacations. We have designed trips for just about every type of situation you can imagine—families, couples, weddings, large groups, business travelers—and for a wide variety of budgets and interests.

Costa Rica Vacations Team

Today we have a staff of over 80 full-time professionals in three countries. Our team is a tight-knit, multicultural family, with over 20 nationalities represented. Our loyal customers frequently ask for travel tips outside of Costa Rica. We now also offer tailor-made travel to neighboring Panama and Nicaragua.
