Costa Rica Group Vacations
Group travel to Costa Rica can make for lifelong memories – relaxing on white-sand beaches, exploring lush rainforests, and enjoying adventure activities is just a taste.
But before you get to that, there's the planning. And group vacations need another level of planning, a level that can cause stress for those involved in said planning.
It's not about getting 15+ people to agree on the best time to travel or even about defining a budget. It's about knowing how to get the best prices, find the best hotels, and figuring out the logistics of moving everyone around once in-country.
There are so many elements to pay attention to, and trying to become an expert on a new location to ensure all the details go well is extremely difficult.
You're going to need some help!
Whether you're planning for an extended family vacation, a work trip, or time away with friends, Costa Rica Vacations is here for you. Our experienced travel consultants will remove all the stress from planning your group vacation.
Leave the planning to us, and you'll get to enjoy the benefits!
How to Get Costa Rica Group Travel Right
Costa Rica offers beautiful locations and world-class hotels. Having the proper preparation makes for a smooth and hassle-free vacation.
There are safe and successful ways to plan a Costa Rica group vacation, even if you're unsure where to start. With the right kind of help and our deep local knowledge, it's easy to ensure the trip goes well.
Plan in Advance
Advance preparation is key. Checking hotels for availability, reserving transportation, organizing tours, and securing restaurant space are some of the most critical steps.
Booking well in advance guarantees the best possible spots and even early booking discounts for your group. Reserving as early as possible is also best to ensure the bedding arrangements are to your satisfaction.
The same happens with tours or special requests – the sooner they're requested, the better.
If you're unsure about these details, don't worry. Enlisting the help of a travel agency like Costa Rica Vacations is a great way to remove stress from the whole experience.
We know all the properties personally and can recommend the options that suit your needs and your budget.
Be Ready to Provide Details About the Group
Not every group is the same. The dynamics change based on numbers, relationships, reasons for traveling, and a myriad of other reasons.
This is why we offer customized attention to every group travel package, and why your Travel Consultant will want the following essential info from the get go:
- Number of people traveling
- Dates of arrival and departure
- Names of travelers
- Number of rooms & bedding arrangements
- Expected tours or activities
This information determines the type of hotels and transportation you'll need, as well as a realistic idea of what the total cost will look like. Having all this at hand makes the decision making process easier.
A one-size-fits-all policy doesn't apply with group travel, not if you are searching for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your Travel Consultant can tailor a perfect package that will work for each individual member of your group as long as they have the details they need.
Arrange Private Transportation
Arriving and leaving Costa Rica as a group can have challenges.
All travelers may arrive on the same flight, or if you're coming from different place, maybe on different flights at different times or even different dates. Getting you all to the same place can be like herding cats.
Costa Rica only has two international airports, each closer to some destinations. However, traveling directly from the airport to the hotel can take time, which is no problem if you have personalized private transportation, which is included in our packages.
We provide a Meet & Greet service with all our packages. These guarantee guests a successful trip wherever they need to be.

The Benefits of Group Travel to Costa Rica
Work trips are usually about enjoying a well-deserved incentive with colleagues. And what's more of an incentive than a trip to tropical Costa Rica?
But with that said, group leaders on work incentive trips can struggle with the sheer amount of people and details they're handling.
Room availability, meeting rooms, and large group meals can be some of the trickiest aspects to nail down on this type of vacation.
This is why our group travel packages offer many benefits, including:
- Complimentary room for your group leader (based on a minimum room number, hotel choice, and availability).
- Personalized contract to guarantee success.
- 'Meet & Greet' airport service and transportation.
- 24/7 in-country support (can be made exclusive as well).
- Zero-interest payment plans.
Choose between boutique hotels or large resorts. Book as many adventure tours as necessary with the best providers.
In addition, if you want all your guests to share the same table, make sure to get reservations for group meals with enough time. If a private driver is required, that also can be arranged to be part of your package.
We can even provide a group contract to ensure what is promised is delivered. Just because this is a work trip doesn't mean it can't be seamless and fun. Enjoy the most beautiful country in the world and create lifelong memories!
Benefits for Extended Family & Groups
Finally, the dream is coming true! Quality time with the whole gang – a vacation full of adventure, relaxation, and entertainment.
Since family should always come first, we offer a variety of benefits with our group travel packages, including:
- Room upgrades for your VIP guest(s) (whenever possible).
- Private group check-in and check-out.
- 'Meet & Greet' airport service and transportation.
- 24/7 in-country support.
- Reserve everything with only 10% down when booking six or more months in advance.
- Zero-interest payment plans.
These benefits are an added value to our personalized itineraries, all there to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible.
A fabulous family vacation to Costa Rica is easy with proper guidance. However, group travel can become more complicated than intended, especially with a multigenerational bunch.
Grandma may want to relax by the pool and go birdwatching, while the kids may prefer to have space to be noisy and play.
Interests range from gourmet food and cultural experiences to zip-lining adventures or surfing.
Some might prefer to stay indoors, while others want to head out to face nature or search for adrenaline.
Everything from nannies and decorations to birthdays and group meals needs to be scheduled and booked in advance. If there's a special celebration at hand, we can also help arrange that for you.
If you're still not sure of what or need, that's why we're here.
Lodgings are a usual point of discussion, as some people prefer big chain names while others prefer more boutique experiences.
An expert Travel Consultant is more than happy to help with this. Depending on your situation, they can suggest whether it's better to choose a resort or even stay at a rental home. They can also advise what tours to take and where to eat.
Budget, tastes, and kid-friendly spaces are all considered when putting together a package.
Planning a vacation can be much easier with the help of a professional travel agency that knows the country well. So contact us and let us help!
