  • Stephanie Wagner
  • From USA
“Your website got everything right! Before the trip booking was easy and someone was always available to answer questions. When we arrived in CR we were immediately met by friendly helpful travel coordinators. Our transportation was there and ready. We receive a call from your local provider every couple of days to check in and make sure we were well. Each hotel was true to the descriptions offered. Our accommodations were lovely and this turned out to be a hassle free amazing trip! I will always use and recommend your website. This is my 2nd trip with them they are consistently great!”
Excellent Vacation Reviewed Tour: Naturally Costa Rica
5 - Excellent
  • Deborah M
  • From USA
“The entire trip was expertly handled and resulted in an excellent vacation. Your local provider contacted us 3 times during the trip to inquire if everything was going smoothly, which was the first time I ever experienced this kind of attentiveness on a booked trip. What a fantastic experience with your website. I assume you also operate under European Destinations which we have used in the past and have only good reviews about our experience in Spain. Our friends have utilized European Destinations based on our recommendations, and we have already told several of our friends about the great experience we had with your webite and the ease with which we were able to book our visit to Costa Rica. You definitely will be a company we utilize for future trips.”
Great experience Reviewed Tour: Best of Costa Rica

  • Dennis B
  • From USA
“My Costa Rica vacation was perfect. Loved each hotel. All tours were fun. Saw so much wildlife it was unbelievable, and had great, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides. Every transfer was smooth with the driver either being on time or a bit early. Amazingly, each driver was almost like a tour guide, pointing out unique and interesting facts and even stopping for photos, while driving well and safely. It is refreshing to meet people who have such a love of their country. Planning the trip on your website was fun and easy. Would definitely recommend to anyone. I did run into a couple of parties who also booked through your website and they were having a great experience, too.”

San Jose - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Tour Highlights

  • Teatro Nacional, or the National Theater, is an opulent building located at the central square called Plaza del Cultura. It hosts a variety of theater performances, concerts and other cultural events.
  • Jade Museum, located in a modern, architecturally distinct building, holds an impressive collection of pre-Columbian artefacts made using this semi-precious stone.
  • Situated in downtown San Jose, the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum treasures over a thousand gold, ceramic and stone artefacts made by various groups who have inhabited present-day Costa Rica.
  • La Sabana Metropolitan Park is a breathtaking urban green space that sprawls for 72 acres. It is the perfect place to unwind away from the capital’s hectic traffic.
  • San Jose is also a great starting destination for day trips in the wider region. Coffee plantations, historical cities and volcanos can be visited within an hour's drive from the main city center. 

Travel Tips

  • If you truly want to soak up the vibrant ambient of the Costa Rican capital, head over to the Barrio Amon, an area nestled north of Plaza Espana. In this historic neighborhood, you will have an opportunity to see picturesque mansions in various architectural styles, some of which in recent years have been converted into boutique shops, restaurants and hotels.
  • Even though downtown San Jose is best explored on foot, the chaotic traffic makes it hard for tourists to get around. Pedestrians generally do not have the right of way, so you should be careful when crossing the street and always watch out for reckless cars and scooters.
  • The Costa Rican capital enjoys warm temperatures year-round, however, if you want to experience the city without worrying about rain, plan your visit during the dry season, which lasts from mid-December to April.
