Your Costa Rica Holiday

If you are lucky enough to have the time to spend two weeks or more for the ultimate Costa Rica holiday in the happiest country in the world, you will definitely have plenty to see and do.

Choosing the Route

10 or more days of travelling in Costa Rica afford you the opportunity to see a great many things this beautiful country has to offer, much more than most people are able to. As such, you may want to consider less-visited locations, like Rincon de la Vieja and Caño Negro. You’ll also want to think about the best way to make sure your trip is both fulfilling and relaxing. For example, perhaps start your time with more energetic activities, leaving beach time until the end to make sure you go home refreshed and renewed.

How to Get Around in Costa Rica?

For our longer packages, we offer the option of renting a car. While most of our clients prefer to use private transfers, sometimes the freedom to get around on your own can be very tempting, especially if you are planning a longer stay. Your Travel Consultant will be happy to discuss the benefits of both types of transport, so that you can make the best decision for you and your travel companions.

Some things to consider:

  • Will you be staying in the same accommodation for several days in a row? If so, private transfers may be more convenient and less expensive.
  • Are you comfortable asking for directions in Spanish? If not, it might be frustrating to drive on your own. While GPS has helped navigation in Costa Rica dramatically, there are still issues with road signage and closures that will be best resolved by asking a local, who may or may not speak English.

What’s the Best Accommodation for Your Costa Rica Holiday?

With longer trips, it may be to your benefit to explore different kinds of lodging during your time in Costa Rica. We recommend two types: rentals and hotels/ecolodges.


In Costa Rica, the best rentals are in beach locations, specifically Manuel Antonio, Guanacaste (Las Catalinas area), and Jacó. If you are planning to stay in the same place for a number of days and explore from there, rentals are a cost-effective and convenient way to do so. Your Travel Consultant can point you to the best choices for your budget and lifestyle. For example, you may prefer to eat in, so you will want something near to a grocery store. If you are in a group or traveling with children, you may prefer a private pool for the sake of convenience.


Other areas, such as Arenal and Tortuguero, are best visited by choosing more traditional hotels. That said, each property is unique, and by working with your Travel Consultant, you can find the best options for your personal preferences. This could be meals-included stays where you don’t have to lift a finger, breakfast-included hotels where you are ready to start out for the day, or more independent options that let you make your own choices about where and when to eat.

No matter the trip you choose, you will have an incredible few weeks in paradise. Feel free to call or email us while you are in the planning process, and we will be happy to work with you to plan your dream holiday in Costa Rica.
