Costa Rica Escapes

Costa Rica Escapes is a boutique Costa Rica vacation itinerary provider who uses extensive knowledge and local relationships to create one-of-a-kind vacations to Costa Rica. Costa Rica Escapes has built a specialized network of in-country partners made up of smaller, boutique style properties and outfitters to provide our travelers with a unique and customized travel experience through this exquisite country. We still show our travelers the popular destinations, but without the large crowds. We also encourage our travelers to venture slightly-off-the-beaten-path and see some of the under-developed parts of the country that offer a genuine, nature-focused and/or cultural experience. We offer our travelers creative options for their trips. For example, they can choose to stay in "homestay" where they will live and interact with a Tico Family. We have other house rental options in these types of communities that allow them to integrate from a distance. We host overnight white-water rafting experiences, as well as service projects, and real-life farm tours. We seek unique adventures and often explore the southern regions such as the Osa Peninsula, Pacuare River and Caribbean Coast with many of our travelers.
