Holidays in San Jose are not something most people on a Costa Rica tour get to experience. For most holidaymakers, the Costa Rican capital and its airport only serve as a transit point to the coast and the country’s famed beaches. However, a visit to San Jose can be incredibly rewarding because it offers a glimpse into everyday life in Costa Rica in a way you won’t be able to experience at the seaside resorts.

Exotic Landscapes of Costa Rica
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
  • From Costa Rica
“Oldemar and his team are amazing. This package was wonderful including mostly private transports, awesome staff at all tours and hotels. I totally enjoyed the high intensity outdoor events. (Many not the night zip lining for novices). The guide was terrific though and I made it though. I would definitely recommend this package and company. The 9 day package was just as impressive as the 15 day one was for Jamie. CR does tourism right!”
The tour operator responded
“We are glad to know Oldemar and our staff took very good care of you .. Thank you for your comments and for sharing your experience with others..”

“I cannot say enough about Oldemar and his team. We bought our plane tickets and thats it! They handled everything else for 15 days!!! We visited Tamarindo, Monteverde, La Fortuna, Arenal, Tortuguero, Puerto Viejo and San Jose. We were there in rainy season, and had private van transfers to each location. Oldemar, Pablo, and Oscar were especially amazing Costa Ricans, and we met countless others. We had dozens of transfers, adventure boat rides, excursions, day and night hikes, horseback rides to waterfalls, nature hikes, zip lines, hanging bridges, and a special late night trip to watch the giant sea turtles lay their eggs. Amazing!!! CRs are very proud that their teachers and professors are their army, since theyve had no military in over 70 years. Education and health care are free. They have between 3-6% of the worlds biodiversity - birds, snakes, frogs, monkeys, sloths, and so many more. Pay attention that the rainy season means it rains (sometimes HARD) and is very humid! What a wonderful trip!! You can trust this company 1000%”
The tour operator responded
“thanks Jamie for such a great review. it is great to know that you enjoyed the trip from start to end .. This kind of comment keep us improving day by day to provide the visitors with the best services. Thank you for letting us be part of your experience ..Pura vida !!”
