Why Costa Rica Tourism is Built Around Guided Tours
If you are planning your first trip to Costa Rica, it is important to know that because of several factors, guided tours are the best and sometimes the only way to enjoy our amazing country.
Costa Rica is a mountainous country right down to the beautiful beaches and this unusual topography makes it pretty difficult to explore on your own. There are beautiful waterfalls, white-water rafting, zipline canopy tours, and ATV tours plus a lot more to help you experience what the country is really like.
However, most of these are on private land through rough terrain on unmarked gravel or dirt roads and driving yourself is not recommended. The tour companies all provide transportation in comfortable shuttles and guides that are safety-conscious and knowledgeable. We recommend using a pre-trip concierge provided by your vacation rental or hotel to help book your tours with their trusted partners.
Creating lasting memories is much easier when you have expert guidance to help you along the way.
