If this is your first time to visit Costa Rica, your best plan would involve contacting Molly at Costa Rican Vacations. We were in for a short stay to visit our daughter and she was able to take care of everything to make our stay perfect. We loved the resort and all of the tours that they provided information for. They also made getting through the airport and all of the transfers pain free.

Melanie, our travel consultant, was outstanding. I can't say enough about the experience and how well everything was thought out and planned. She did an amazing job of setting the stage for our Honeymoon to be fantastic. It's a trip that we'll never forget and a travel experience that we will always remember as being the best. PURA VIDA!

Nico, from Costa Rican Vacations planned the perfect vacation for our family! We had an amazing time. The boutique hotels we stayed in were picture perfect, staff very friendly, and food delicious! Our excursions (zip lining, hikes through rainforest to beautiful waterfalls, sunset cruises, sloth and monkey sightings, and more) were also planned perfectly. The drivers were so friendly and a couple of them even gave us Spanish lessons during the drives. A magical time!

Nico at Costa Rican Vacations planned a great trip for us. He listened to what I was looking for and made appropriate recommendations. I made a few changes before the trip was finalized and Nico was happy to oblige. I was a bit nervous to show up in a foreign country without making my own plans and reservations, but no need to worry! There was an agent with a sign for us at the airport and she sent us on our way. Every hotel expected us, every driver waited for us, every tour guide knew we were coming. There was a minor error on our itinerary which I didn't notice until halfway through our trip. One call to the local Costa Rican Vacations number and everything was rectified. Pura Vida!

I booked my vacation with Marco through Costa Rican Vacations not knowing what to expect, and I have to say that I was amazed at how organized and professional the whole operation was. We traveled from coast to coast, and we were greeted warmly by all the drivers, the tour guides, and hotel staff. The logistics of moving our family of 4 around from one end of the country to the other, taking us from one excursion to another, went off without a hitch. The country is beautiful and offers so many experiences, many of which we were lucky enough to enjoy, with highlights including watching Green Sea Turtles laying their eggs, white water rafting and swimming at the foot of a 70 metre waterfall. As well, the natural surroundings were breathtaking, and monkeys, sloths, exotic birds, and all sorts of reptiles kept us company wherever we went. So awesome! A big thanks to Marco for helping us customize the perfect vacation for our family!

Shay from Costa Rican Vacations made our trip one of the best our family has ever taken! She was fabulous to work with and made sure that our vacation everything we wanted. The hotels and tours were amazing! Our drivers made moving around Costa Rica easy and enjoyable. They were tour guides as well as drivers. Would recommend anyone use Costa Rican Vacations for your trip there.

Our trip was for our honeymoon, and what an excellent choice Costa Rica was! The people are incredible, and Costa Rican Vacations set everything up for us, no worries at all! My only regret is not knowing the resorts all take American Dollars, I would have brought more cash for tips and such, just a suggestion!

Our vacation was absolutely perfect. Every aspect was well thought out and planned for us. Because we went during the green season, our tours were basically private tours. The drivers and your guides were amazing, friendly, and knowledgable. We will definitely recommend and use Costa Rican vacations again. We could not have asked for a better trip to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.

The Panama trip organized by Costa Rica Vacations fully met our expectations, provided a quality introduction to Panama covering the Canal, Panama City, the mountains and the Pacific coast. Our time was well used, the accommodation was of very high quality and the included activities were excellent. WE did not have much time to organize this trip, and relied on Panama Vacations to help us optimise our opportunity which they did. We can recommend them.

Logistically it was perfect,all our transportation was spot on.I had a problem with our accommadations.The resort was nice but was having some renovations done (no bar).also it was my 60th birthday and they put us on a steep hill we had to walk up and down to get anywhere.After that we were brought to our second location,which was an all inclusive that really wasn't all inclusive at all.we were only able to eat at the restaurant 2 days out of the 6 we were there.The rest of the time we had to eat at the buffet which was horrible.I booked a fishing trip with the company and got a nice young man who was given a boat and told to take a client fishing,he didn't know much about fishing,luckily I do.so after 3 hours of a 4 hour trip i kinda took over and we caught our first fish,not what you would expect from a expensive charter.I was kinda disappointed because like I said it was my 60th birthday and it was also my 40th wedding anniversary and there was no mention of either of those 2 major events in my life at either hotel.And when we booked this vacation we were sure to tell our agent about them.Just disappointed that you save for a nice vacation and it just wasn't what we were hoping for.

For my oldest daughter's high school graduation trip our family of 4 (myself, my husband and our 13 and 18 year old daughters) decided to visit Costa Rica as she had been there in middle school and LOVED it! We worked with Lisa Cederberg and she made the trip planning smooth and easy! I told her which areas we wanted to visit: Manuel Antonio national park, Monteverde cloud forest, Arenal volcano and the beaches of Guanacaste and she set up our itinerary and transfers between each city. Every hotel we stayed in was wonderful, beautiful accommodations with beautiful views. Every transfer was seamless and comfortable, in air conditioned vans with english speaking drivers, some of whom liked to narrate the drive and give us information about the country not to mention stopping to let us check out local wildlife and stopping for lunch on the longer trips. Their in country customer service was excellent as we needed to call them a couple of times, once to locate an opticians office as I forgot my contact lenses and once late night to cancel a tour for the next morning (and they were able to refund us). The country is beautiful, the people are friendly, the food is excellent and we had no problems, zero complaints! All of us felt this was one the best family vacations we have ever had!

Costa Rican Vacations made our Honeymoon FLAWLESS! We did not have to worry about transportation or whether we booked decent accommodations or not. They took the stress out of planning a first timers trip to Costa Rica. Thanks to them we stayed in the best hotels/resorts and we able to sit back and let them do the driving. Happy to have used them for our first trip to Costa Rica; the trip likely would not have been so stress free if it wasn't for their service. Thank you.

Everything about our Costa Rica adventure was perfect...I wouldn't change a minute. The drivers were all personable, careful and on time and their vehicles clean and comfortable. The guides were all excellent and knowledgeable. Each took time to help our 16 year old grandson practice his Spanish.
We stayed in 3 different lodgings and each was excellent. Marco must have taken our ages (77 and 82) into account as in each place we were close to the elevator or reception!
I would recommend Costa Rica Vacations without hesitation.
Thanks for Marco for planning the trip and Fernando, Otto, Carlos, Jairo, Jesus, and Octavius for making the trip so special.

Melanie Marsell planned the best vacation for us!! We felt like VIPs the whole time! From the greeting and pick up at the airport to the reluctant departure! I cannot describe how amazing each hotel was and how fun each activity was!!! Melanie gave us great tips for restaurants! Lava Lounge was great! We felt safe the entire time and the people of Costa Rica are so kind!! I wish Melanie planned outside of Central America i’d have her plan all my vacations!
