Our team of local expert Costa Rica travel planners design custom trips for every single guest. Living and working full-time here in Costa Rica means that we understand the country, including its quirks, intimately.
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.
I moved to Costa Rica over six years ago. I love to travel, even if it’s not too far away, and I love exploring this amazing country and love being able to plan trips for people, making really unique experiences that make for the most memorable trip!
After an odd series of events I ended up moving to Costa Rica after graduation and 7 years later I’m still here! Costa Rica is now home, which I get to share with my husband, daughter, and two wild puppies. I love trail running, hiking, and Costa Rica’s weather.
I first came to Costa Rica in 2004 with some friends. Being from Florida, this was an easy trip and after my first trip down, I started coming back a few times a year. In 2009, I closed down my business in the states and decided to move to Costa Rica and learn Spanish for a year. Here it is a decade later and I am still here. I guess I am a slow learner.
I came to Costa Rica in 2009 from Raleigh, North Carolina. After a year of teaching English, I found the best job in the world, planning vacations for other people to come down and experience this little slice of paradise. Costa Rica completely changed my life in an amazing way, and it is a privilege to be able to share this beautiful little country with others.
I’ve always loved traveling, speaking Spanish, and had a strong desire to live abroad and work internationally. I’ve been fortunate enough to live in Costa Rica for 13 years and have fallen in love with the nature, spectacular scenery, the peaceful lifestyle and Pura Vida way of life.
Originally from Wyoming I first made my way to Costa Rica as a study abroad student. The Pura Vida way of life captured me and I made the move in 2011 to become an official beach resident in a small town in the Nicoya Peninsula.
Traveling off the beaten path is one of my passions, and Costa Rica has provided me with plenty of opportunities to do so. I’ve been exploring the country for over 15 years, living here for five, and as a family man (with three kids) I know the importance of both quiet and fun times. Spotting wildlife and spending as much time as I can in the ocean with my three kids are some of my favorite pastimes.
Originally from Minnesota, I have made Costa Rica home for over 18 years. My first experience in Costa Rica was in 1991, when I came to visit a Costa Rican exchange student my family had hosted during my senior year of high school. I immediately fell in love with the country and its people, so I continued to look for reasons to return. Eventually, I married a “Tica”, and we are now raising our two children in PARADISE!
Knowing I had one extra semester left of college more than my friends (everyone needs a victory lap, right?) I found a program that allowed me to finish my Biology degree and intern at a local clinic for 4 months here in Costa Rica. That was 5 years ago, and if you can’t guess this by now, I never left! I spent some time living at the beach and now call San Jose my home, which is the perfect base for weekend trips to the beach, my preferred pastime.
I was born in Costa Rica to a Floridian dad and a Costa Rican mom. I have been travelling between the two places my entire life. After graduating from University of Florida, I made the move back to Costa Rica permanently. I worked as an event planner in Arenal for a few years before I made my way over to Costa Rican Vacations. I have lived in many places throughout the country, but I’ve recently made San Jose my home where I live with my two Dobermans, Lecter and Leia.
Originally from Wilton, CT, I first came to Costa Rica in 2010 to visit some Costa Ricans or “Ticos” who I worked with in the United States. I instantly fell in love with the country and culture, and could not wait to come back. After visiting several times, and a few extended stays, I decided to make this my home. I am passionate about fishing, SCUBA diving, as well as anything on the water. I strive to make your experience here in Costa Rica truly unique and world class.
I first came to Costa Rica in 2009 when I was backpacking from Mexico to Colombia with friends. I met my now Costa Rican husband in the first week of being in Costa Rica and we will celebrate our 10 year anniversary in 2021! We have spent the past 10 years travelling between Bristol in England and the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. We now have a 2 year old son, who got to experience so much of the natural world in his first year.
I was born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina and gained a love for Latin America when I was 18 and traveled to El Salvador. After graduating college, I made the move here and haven’t looked back since. This country and its culture has taught me so much about who I want to be and the life I want to create. I am truly passionate about sharing that with the people that vacation here. Who knows, you may never leave…
I was born in Yuma Arizona, lived in San Diego for 16 years and have a 4 year old daughter, 20 month old son and a surfer husband. We worked the grind for several years and left it all to bank on faith, knowing that our paths served us best living in Costa Rica! Now, I have my dream job and get to go to the beach every single day!
“This is definitely a FIVE STAR company. We split our trip in halves, we not only wanted to see the sloths, the rainforest, the volcanoes and hot springs but we also wanted to see the monkeys, the beach and to be pampered... The service, the pools, the beach, the pampering it was all worth it to relax from the excursions and the action of the rainforest... We will return and would recommend this destination to anyone!!”
