Costa Rica Itinerary Suggestions

Costa Rica Escapes specializes in upscale and unique travel experiences throughout Costa Rica and neighboring areas in Panama. Every Costa Rica itinerary that we develop is private and exclusive to your travel group, no matter how many people will be traveling. We build your trip around your schedule and preferences.

While we do offer all-inclusive tours, we do not coordinate “big-box style vacations” or put you on a bus or in a high-rise hotel with a bunch of strangers during your adventure trip. We understand that this is a special vacation, and want to personalize and make it distinctive for you and your travel companions.

Costa Rica Escapes brings clarity, definition and efficiency to your travel preparations so that you can have a safe, high quality, and personalized trip through this exquisite country. Though we offer many different types of trips, we specialize in the following categories:

We encourage all travelers to review our Costa Rica itineraries in detail and let us know which you like the most. This will give us a good starting point as we begin the planning process. We will offer local advice and knowledge to make sure your interests and travel style are correctly matched with the best places to visit and the best accommodations for your trip (and budget). Your vacation time is valuable, and we want to create memories that will last a lifetime!

How Many Days in Costa Rica?

We specialize in trips that involve spending 8-10 days in Costa Rica. Most of our trips are described as 9 day trip, however, we also offer 8 and 11 day variations (with pricing) to help you better understand your options. If you’re looking to spend only 7 days in Costa Rica, we can accommodate that, but we recommend spending a little more than a week in Costa Rica.

If you’re interested in a 12-14 day trip, we can help you see even more of this beautiful country and plan some incredible local experiences that you will never forget over the course of a two-week timespan.  When it comes down to it, we can help with whatever length of trip that you’re interested in! Just contact us to get started. We’re happy to answer questions!
