Costa Rica Beach Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 68 customer reviews
Greenway Tours provided us with a seamless experience!
5 - Excellent
  • Jane Justiz
“Everything was booked ahead of time, we didn't have to worry about hotels, transportation, or food (as some in our party were vegetarian)! Mario answered all of our questions and was very knowledgeable about everything Costa Rica. While driving to our excursions, Mario went above and beyond by pointing out toucans that flew in front of us as well as stopping to observe the howler monkeys, buffalos, and pineapple crops. Mario also helped us customize our trip by adding an extra day to our tour. At the end of our trip, Mario gifted us some local coffee and key chains as well!We went to Costa Rica June 2021 and were very impressed with the country's covid regulations (we had to wear masks and wash our hands before entering any establishment) which made us feel very safe.Overall, we would recommend Greenway Tours to anyone and happily book with them in the future. Pura Vida.”
Lots of variety and plenty of memorable experiences
5 - Excellent
  • Paul King
“The tour was well thought out, with a nice blend between activities and relaxation. We stayed in 6 different locations and each provided something unique and enjoyable. It is hard to pick top highlights of the tour as there were so many.. which is testament to the tour and hence recommend it highly. All the were all at least good and some very nice (particularly los lacos in arenal). Transfers between the locations were efficient and takes a lot of stress off the experience.”
Our trip was Fantastic
5 - Excellent
  • Ryan Spencer
“I can say without a doubt that our trip was fantastic. The only thing I can complain about is that the monkeys weren`t running around all over the place as we had hoped, but that of course has nothing to do with your company. You all were great in securing our lodgings and transfers! All our hotels just seemed to get increasingly better as the trip progressed. Our guides and drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. We have already recommended this operator to someone we met on the trip! Thanks again for helping to make our stay memorable!”

Travel tips for beach tours in Costa Rica

  • Opt for local eateries and markets to savor authentic cuisine and save on dining expenses. Explore affordable accommodation options in beach towns like Tamarindo for a budget-friendly stay.
  • Plan your visit to beaches in Costa Rica during the dry season (December to April) for sun-soaked adventures. This period offers ideal weather conditions for beach exploration and water activities, ensuring a memorable experience. For more ideas check out our guide on the best time to visit Costa Rica.
  • Pack binoculars for bird-watching along the coastal areas. Many beaches such as Manuel Antonio offer opportunities to spot diverse bird and wildlife species.
  • Check tide schedules before planning beach activities. Low tide reveals hidden tide pools and expands sandy areas, providing optimal conditions for exploration and beachcombing.
  • Catch breathtaking sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. Beaches like Playa Flamingo and Santa Teresa offer spectacular views. Plan evening beach strolls or picnics to witness nature's nightly masterpiece.
