Costa Rica: Your Personal Adventure

Get Your Custom Quote

The birthplace of ecotourism, Costa Rica is home to the world’s most diverse biology. Its jungles, cloud forests, wetlands, and beaches rank among the world’s most beautiful. For Americans, Costa Rica has traditionally been a honeymoon hotspot, a surfer’s playground, and a rejuvenating retreat. Truly a convenient international travel destination, a three-hour flight from Miami allows you to raft down the wild Rio Grande de Orosi, snorkel among the pristine Isla Tortuga’s coral reefs, or simply chill along the beautiful, sun-drenched Nicoya Peninsula coastline.

Road to Arenal

Arenal Volcano

The country's most active volcano, Arenal's eruptions are frequent but moderate and can be viewed without danger as long as the viewers are behind the safety perimeter. This constant activity and minimal endangerment makes Arenal a popular tourist destination, especially at night, when the lava and incandescent rocks make a spectacular sight. Ziplining, horseback riding, hiking, white water river rafting and ecological education are all here, with dramatic Arenal acting as a backdrop to the adventure.
Capuchin Monkey

Monte Verde Cloud Forest Adventure

The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is a private non-profit reserve administered by the Tropical Science Center, and contains six distinct ecological zones. The Monte Verde Cloud Forest Sky Trek is a system of zip lines ranging from mountain to mountain, which together boast a distance of 2.5 miles of linear cable.

Osa Peninsula

This is where wilderness meets the water. One of Costa Rica's most blissfully underdeveloped regions, the Osa Peninsula includes Corcovado National Park with towns ranging from tiny fishing villages to smaller surf towns. Though not the country's most popular beach destination by far, this is our favorite place to send travelers. Osa Peninsula is where locals go to ditch the crowds, and that equals cultural purity. Take it from experts on "off the beaten path" travel: you want to be here.
Tropical Beach

Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio National Park consists of four beautiful beaches and a rain forest that hosts white faced monkeys, squirrel monkeys, sloths and howler monkeys. Tiny it may be, but this 682-hectare national park epitomizes everything tourists flock to Costa Rica to see: stunning beaches, a magnificent setting with islands offshore (bird sanctuaries for marine species), lush rainforest laced with a network of welcoming trails, and wildlife galore.

What Our Clients Are Saying!

Highlights of Ecuador and Peru

First, I just wanted to thank our travel specialist again! His help was invaluable and made the trip so memorable and easy. Everything for the Peru leg was flawless from the time we landed in Cusco. On the trail, Lobo, our guide was a walking Inca/Peru encyclopedia. He answered every question we threw at him regarding plants, animals, history, astronomy and anthropology and everything else. Everything in Ecuador was nearly as equally perfect. We filled the days between the trek and the Galapagos cruise with sightseeing in Cuenca and Quito on our own. Thanks again for planning out this amazing trip! Look forward to our next Global Basecamps vacation!

Dave and Family on their trek

This was my first trip with Global Basecamps... It will not be my last. The overall planning was excellent. The communications prior to leaving were clear, concise and helpful... The transfer arrangements from airports to hotels were flawless. Our guide, Edwar Montalvo Gomez, was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, friendly, supportive and most importantly fun for the teenagers. Our cook, Pedro, was to put it into words of my grandchildren "amazing, really awesome"! The hotels were fine. The gold standard was Villa Urubamba. It was truly an oasis in terms of beauty, service and quality.
