Costa Rica Expeditions was founded in 1978 to help the sophisticated traveler explore Costa Rica - its flora and fauna, its people and culture, its wild and beautiful places. Costa Rica Expeditions continues to set the pace with a year-round program of wilderness and nature adventures in one of the world's most biodiverse and richly-populated wildlife zones.

With appeal for most all travelers, particularly those seeking escape to remote wilderness areas with comfortable accommodations waiting at the end of the day, Costa Rica Expeditions blends adventure-packed itineraries led by expert, bilingual naturalist guides with surprisingly luxurious lodgings set in Costa Rica's wildest corners.

Costa Rica Expeditions is recommended by more guidebooks than any other company in Costa Rica. It has designed and guided travel within the tropical wild lands it knows so well for such respected institutions as the National Geographic Society, the National Audubon Society and the World Wildlife Fund. Costa Rica Expeditions also operates trips for Abercrombie & Kent, Wilderness Travel, Virtuoso and many other top-line tour operators.

  • Costa Rica Expeditions set up my stay in San Jose and a visit to a cloud forest reserve northwest of San Jose. The drivers and guides were exceptional for my 3.5 day visit. They didn't force me any certain direction, but instead were responsive to my likes and interests. Sometimes we went to places that were out of the way and not touristy, like restaurants local favor, or seeing behind the scenes on how woodworking is done. There was a good mix of upscale/luxury activities and good value. It's December as I write this, and I plan to go back in March, because I trust them to plan a longer journey and there is more to see.
  • We went through Costa Rica Expeditions for our May 2017 trip to Costa Rica. We are a family of 5 (three older boys plus Mom & Dad). Our trip was incredible. I worked with Gustavo on our plans as we went to four different locations in the country. Very impressed with all the tours we had set up, our transportation and our hotels. Everything was exactly as our itinerary was set up (ex. when they said our tour was picking us up at 7:00 am at the hotel, that is exactly what time they were there). We did not have a single worry. Even minor changes that happened (ex. they changed our tour to the Paos volcano as the gov't closed it due to activity), Gustavo gave us options and worked with us on our new plan. I can't say enough good things about this company and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.
