Costa Rica is a small country on a narrow passage between the two Americas. But despite its relatively small size, it is very diverse and you can actually encounter any type of weather. Did you know that you can be over a hot ocean and in high mountains within a 2-hour drive? That’s exactly what Costa Rica is like. Our trip to Costa Rica is a great opportunity to see the country’s greatest treasures and experience the Pura Vida culture.
Of course, in the plan of our trip can not miss scuba diving. And here Costa Rica also has something to boast about. It is impossible not to mention expeditions to Cocos Island, which you will also find in our offer. However, diving in Costa Rica also includes places that are more accessible, but equally beautiful, such as Isla del Cano. We will also visit rainforests, hot beaches and many cool places.
We organize expeditions to Costa Rica, which in their plan also include sightseeing of many interesting places of this beautiful country. This trip is designed for everyone, regardless of diving level. Non-divers are also welcome, as there will be many attractions for them as well. Plan your big adventure!
The tour program is designed so that there is time for diving and relaxation, but also to visit some very attractive places. A group of up to 10 people + two experienced guides throughout the trip. During the trip there will be an opportunity to take a basic diving course, as well as improve your diving skills.
Have you ever seen magnificent vegetation and wildlife at your fingertips? That’s what Costa Rica and our expedition offers. You will have the opportunity to see the diversity of this country and its greatest treasures. We will see rainforests, volcanoes, hot beaches and great diving and snorkeling spots.
When Columbus reached the coast of Costa Rica, he was charmed by the country’s wealth, which is why he called the place “the rich coast.” During our trip you will be able to see some of these treasures and see for yourself if Columbus was right. We have carefully selected the best sites so you can get the most out of this trip.
Tour begins with meeting at Juan Santamaría International Airport in San José, Costa Rica. However, depending on the Airport of Your Choice, a meeting place will be determined where you will meet the rest of the group. From the airport, travelers will be transferred to one of hotels in downtown of San José. Dinner will be served at the hotel, and for those who wish, an evening walk around San José.
On the first day after arrival, we will explore the city and soak up the hot Costa Rican culture. We will see different corners of the city, from rich neighborhoods to simple suburbs. We will also visit a museum of gold and relics from the pre-Columbian era.
We will start the day with a visit to the Irazu volcano, where, if the weather is good, you can see a large piece of Costa Rica. This is also an amazing opportunity to be at 3432 meters above sea level. The next stop will be the town of Sarapiqui, where the first water adventure of the trip – rafting – awaits us. After all these adventures, we will drive to the village of La Fortuna, where we will stay overnight.
The next day will be spent exploring the arenal region, zip lining through the wilderness and lounging in the hot springs.
On this day we will visit the rainforests with their magical hanging bridges in Monte Verde. In the afternoon we will visit Puntarenas and learn a little about its sad history.
It will be an amazing day. We will see crocodiles, but not from the bridge, as most tourists do, but directly from the boat. The big reptiles will be at your fingertips, so you’d better keep your hands to yourself… In the evening, we will arrive in the town of Jaco, where those willing can get a taste of Costa Rica’s nightlife.
We will spend this day snorkeling and diving on the most beautiful island in the area, Isla Tortuga.
The next day we will visit Manuel Antonio National Park, which is considered one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica. The tour will be with a local guide, so nothing will be missed. In the afternoon, we will drive to Uvita, where we will spend the next few days.
We will spend two days diving around the beautiful Isla del Cano. For non-divers, there will be an opportunity to snorkel or just relax on the island. On the way to the island we have the chance to see many animals, including even whales and orcas. One of these days we will go to Corcovado National Park. This is Costa Rica’s greatest treasure!
That day we’ll drive to the country’s capital, San José, but there are still a few attractions along the way. Such as fresh coffee on a mountain plantation.
On that day, unfortunately, it will be time to pack up and say goodbye to wonderful Costa Rica. All travalers will be transported to the international airport and, depending on the Airport of Your Choice, will return to their place of residence.

All of our tours begin and end at the airport in the destination country. Our base, however, is in Costa Rica, and some travelers will start the trip from that country. The other part of the tour usually departs from Europe, that is, from one of the major European airports.
If you can join either group, you obviously have the option to do so, and in this case you will be accompanied by a guide from takeoff. Alternatively, you can choose to reach the starting point, i.e. the airport in the destination country, on your own. In any case, the Airport of Your Choice refers to the place from where you want to start your tour and where we are to drop you off at the end of the tour.
Costa Rica has visa-free travel for citizens of many countries, unfortunately not all countries of the world are on this list.
