Costa Rica Eco Tours

There are great Costa Rica Eco Tours especially for singles in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s.

This holiday package is particularly for those singles who are a lot younger than their biological age would suggest. I’m sure you know so many people younger than you who just can’t keep up.

This not a “extreme” tour, however, but it is one where you get to explore the lush tropical rainforest and the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean coast, while also experiencing the sights and sounds of a booming and prosperous Latin American country.

Going on this tour especially organized for singles like you has many advantages. For one, you don’t have to pay an extra “singles supplement” because you don’t have a travel partner. Those supplements, which you would have to pay for on other tours, can increase the cost of your vacation significantly.

Also, on a specialized singles holiday package you have great company. That makes a world of difference when you are travelling on vacation. Bad company can ruin what would have been a great vacation, while great company can turn a good vacation into an excellent one.

Indeed, although most people come on these tours by themselves, they often leave having made friends for life.

No more singles holidays! No more singles vacations! No single supplements!

Mark asks…

I am trying to plan an all inclusive trip to Costa Rica on the cheap any ideas?

I would like to stay at a resort on the beach either side is fine.

Yaz answers:

You should look at the best travel agency here www.destinostv.com

Robert asks…

Would it be cheaper to buy a Costa Rica vacation package from Hotels.com or separately?

I’m planning a short trip to Costa Rica for about 5-6 days. Would it be cheaper to buy a vacation package deal from hotels.com or buy airfare separately online and then book hotels locally when I get there? Where would be a good and cheap place to stay in San Jose and Quepos? What are the availability around this time of year? What is the best traveling method from San Jose to Quepos?

Yaz answers:

Go to
www.ilovecostarica.com for info…. Or

www.truecostarica.com loads of info available.

I saw book a package deal, especially cheaper if you want to actually tour the countryside….there are some wonderful deals for just under $1,000 for 10 days including tours throughout the country, meals and hotels throughout the country. You get to see the sites, taste the foods and stay at more than one hotel/villa! I have friends in San Jose and hope to go down for a visit next spring – stay with them some, but plan to take a package tour also…Have fun!

Donna asks…

cheap places around tamarindo and jaco costa rica?

taking a trip to costa rica next year around may for two weeks and we’re going to hit tamarindo and jaco. know of any cheap places to stay

Yaz answers:

If you go to Playa Grande( 5-10 mins from Tamarindo) theres a hotel called the Las Tortugas, right on the beach behind a turtle nesting marine park. They have some surfer rancheros that are like $15 a day. I havn’t stayed in them, but from photos, they don’t look half bad. Did I mention that its right on the beach? And theres an awesome surf break there. Also, try and stay in Playa Hermosa instead of Jaco, its a little less grimy and only a few minutes away from Jaco. I havn’t stayed in any cheap hotels in Hermosa, but they are there. Hope this helps and have a great time!

Betty asks…

Is it better to have a travel agent arrange my costa rica trip?will they find cheaper deals?their commission?

Is it cheaper for me to do this myself?
What are the pros and cons of a travel agent?

Yaz answers:

They probably will find better deals as they have greater buying power, and they will know the locations. They should also be insured should they go bust.
Check online and read lots of reviews on various travel agents.
I would use a travel agent with a country I am not familiar with, and do it myself if I know the country fairly well.

Ken asks…

Where can i get cheap ticket for a round trip to Cost Rica?

My mom, sister and me want to take a trip to Costa Rica. ( 3 adults ). My mom wants to spend atleast 350 on tickets, no more then that. We are leaving from JKF, NY. We plan on leaving February 18 and returning the 27, 2011. Can any one find me ticket deals for me or show me where i can find some?

Yaz answers:

Since it is just a little over a month before you will be leaving, the prices are going to be high. From JFK and nearby airports, the cheapest right now for those dates is $704 incl. Tax. The price is likely to go up as it gets closer to the travel date. $350 is next to impossible to find, but you could try bidding on a site like http://www.priceline.com. If you return on the 25th, the price will only be $574. Go to a website like http://www.orbitz.com , type in JFK to SJO and try different days.

Your Questions About Best Place To Vacation In Costa Rica

John asks…

Where is the best place in Costa Rica to vacation??

I am trying to book a vacation to Costa Rica but I have no idea what city to book it in. I wanna stay somewhere on the beach, close to nightlife, and where there is a lot of activities. Please help me and if you have been there describe the place you thinks I should go. I am 21 and I am going with my boyfriend and another couple who are young as well.

Yaz answers:

Personally, I liked San Jose when I was there years ago. It’s a great city and is sort of like Denver, but the mountains are on the wrong side.

Paul asks…

Where is the best place in Costa Rica to vacation at?

We have heard a lot about Costa Rica, and nothing but good things. We are thinking of taking our yearly vacation there this year, but just don’t know what area is best. Please provide any information as far as the best location to visit, along with hotels if possible.

Thank You

Yaz answers:

Good question. This really depends on what you’d like to see and do. For the best of everything Costa Rica has to offer from nature tours, Canopy Tours, Beaches, ATV tours, Wildlife sighting, Big Game Sport Fishing, and the best variety of nightlife, dining,shopping, accomodations, and overall greatest Costa Rica expereinces, you should plan on traveling to and staying anywhere from the Jaco Beach area to Manuel Antonio.

This region West Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica offers the best variety of everything! I would not suggest traveling to the North Coastal regions such as Flamingo,Tamarindo,Liberia,Coco or the whole Guanacaste area in general as you will be bored to death after your first 2 days there.

You can get a taste of the best of everything there is to see and do in Costa Rica between Jaco Beach and Manuel Antonio, and easily fill your itinerary.

Hope this helps.

Donald asks…

What is the best place to vacation in Costa Rica?

Consider price and location

Yaz answers:

Depending on what you want, but really wonderful beach is Manuel Antonio National Park, and then on a one day tour, volcan Poas is a little active these days, and its the second biggest crater int he world! (no danger, though, there are 45 minutes guided visits with park guides)

Caribbean as well, they said, its beautiful, but bad thing over there is that it’s almost always rainy… For sure it won’t rain in October.

Right now we’re having a really nice warm weather, and for Holly Week most probably everything will be full!

Hostal and cheap paces can be found everywhere, as well as expensive ‘chains’ of hotels, ej barcelo, or fiesta. Everything will be a lot cheaper after week of 9-16..

Good luck!

Ruth asks…

best place to vacation costa rica or jamaica?In mid febuary.?

Yaz answers:

I would choose Costa Rica. The rain forest is fascinating and the beach beautiful. Jamaica is too commercial.

George asks…

whats the best place to vacation in costa rica?

2 people

Yaz answers:

Okay, what type of vacation do you want.

This is a great location for adventure tourism, eco-tourism, and beach bumming and surfing. The Caribbean coast is more afro-caribbean with reggae and calypso vibes. Guanacaste is surf and sun with a variety of beaches and surf levels. The OSA is all about sustainable living and conserving the rain forest. Here you will find great deep sea fishing, bird watching and there is some surfing. Manuel Antonio is a nice spot with a Beautiful pacific coast national park.

Linda asks…

What city is the best vacation spot in Costa Rica?

I am looking for rain forests where i could zip line and see monkeys and stuff. But beaches and other attractions too.

Also

A)What hotel to stay at?

B)Attractions

C)What transportation to use?

D)And any other info i could use I for planning a vacation

Yaz answers:

You can get a full trip plan for free if you fill out this form with what you want http://mapcr.com/user/tripform.php

It sounds like you’d have a great time visiting one rainforest region like Arenal volcano where you could choose from activities like ziplining, canyoneering and waterfall rappels, wildlife watching nature cruise on the Rio Frio and Cano Negro Wetlands and more like mountain biking, horsebackriding, and hotsprings.

Then head to one of the Guanacaste beaches. Hermosa is great for families, Tamarindo, Grande, Negra are all good for surfing, and others like Sugar Beach, Playa Conchal and Matapalo (the Riu Resort) are private beaches with all inclusive resorts.

You can do this with either provided (chauffeured) transportation or a rental car for roughly the same price.  Check out Payless Car,  below, for example:

Laura asks…

why is manuel antonio one of costa rica’s best vacation spots?

My daughter is doing a spanish project on the Parque Nacional Corcovada in Costa Rica and I promised I’d help her.  One question is why is manuel antonio one of costa rica‘s best vacation spots? and we’ve searched high and low for answers on the internet, and we can’t find anything.  Any help here?

Yaz answers:

I used to live there. Loved it but just a little to hot for me.

First it has the most visited National Park (closed Mondays) with tons of wildlife. Three different kinds of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, you are pretty much guaranteed to see it all because the park is very compact. Not spread out over a large area like Corcovado National Park. Be sure to go early in the morning to see the most wildlife, and get yourself a guide.

Second, it has tons of things to do, surfing, white water rafting, canopy tours, mangrove tours,spas, great restaurants. Your hotel will be happy to give you recommendations on all the tours, but I really love Kapi Kapi restaurant, very expensive but worth it. If you are a spa goer Spa Uno is a must, they hand make their own organic products.

Third, great beaches. The jungle literally comes right up to the sand, and so do the monkey!.

Forth, easy access. 20 minute flight from San Jose.

James asks…

Best tourist spots in Costa Rica.?

I’d like to travel Costa Rica, not just vacation.
I plan on renting a car.
What are the best beaches, national parks, and activities to do in the country? I want to get the most of my trip.

Yaz answers:

I recommend that you: fly into san jose

stay a night, then early morning you should transfer to toruguero, its a little island that you have to take a boat to get to , but its well worth it :)

on the way to the boat, you can drive through braulio carillo national park which is lovely 😀 spend the day in the village, and at night you should go and see the turtle nesting sites :)

after that, i recommend that you transfer to arenal region where the arenal volcano spues fiery hot lava almost every night- its a sight not to be missed :)

then after staying there for a bit, transfer to monteverde- this is the countries ecotourism capital and has stunning cloud forests- here, you should try the zip line, i would suggest selvatura park :)

next, try manuel antonio- this region is beautiful and has some of the most stunning beaches costa rica has to offer- you should pay the $10 to get into the national park, in my opinion this is where the best beaches are, the park is also teaming with wildlife and is definitely Worth a visit :)

….a guideline :L that’s similar to what I did the first time, and i wouldn’t change anything about that trip to costa rica 😀

Susan asks…

Costa Rica vacation spots?

My girlfriends and I are trying to plan a trip to costa rica sometime in the summer. What are some good vacation spots? I know there’s a variety of different types of places to go in Costa Rica but we’re a group of singles in our 30s and we want something with beautiful beaches and activities to do. If anyone has stayed at certain hotels please let me know what your reviews were on them and anything you’d recommend to help me plan a trip there! Thank you!

Yaz answers:

I personally enjoy living on the central Pacific coastline, Jaco to be specific. It really depends what you girls have in mind but Jaco/Manuel Antonio/Dominical have a bit of it all.

Jaco is more of a party town, Manuel Antonio is known for its national park with the flora and fauna being a huge attraction and Dominical is a much less crowded area and very relaxing.

The northern pacific Guanacaste has some of the most beautiful beaches.

If you plan on doing the city life, then Heredia or the capital San Jose are the most popular locations with all type of nightlife.

Monteverde is famous for the rain forest and protected areas and San Carlos is home to the Arenal Volcano which has spectacular lava shows, weather permitting of course.

Here is a Google map showing a location of the places I mentioned above:

I personally recommend to try to book places or at least have a good idea of what you want before coming down and winging it.

You’ll find all types of hotels, B&B’s and condos all over the country, to give you an example, Jaco has a beachfront Best Western for $99 and other local hotels as low as $50 a night or you can book a 2 bedroom condo which can sleep 4 people for $99 at Club del Sol.

Once you have a budget be sure to do a little research, I’m sure you’ll find nice places that will fit your price range.

A package tour like the one offered here, too, is a very good idea.

David asks…

Costa Rica Vacation!?!?

HI! I’d like go to Costa Rica over the Summer… I’ve done all my research but im still not sure where to stay exactly, bad mixed with good reviews… don’t know what to trust… If anyones ever been to Costa Rica and had an awsome time.. plz share any tips or resort names? activity name?

Thx!!!!!

Yaz answers:

Costa Rica has 7 provinces: San Jose, Cartago, Alajuela, Puntarenas, Guanacaste, Heredia and Limon. Take  a look at the Google map above for more details.

San Jose is the capitol and the south side neighborhoods do have a lot of crime but the tourist do not go to those areas. In center of San Jose the nice things to do are to go to the national museum, gold museum, the zoo, the public central market.

The Aurola Holiday Inn is a pretty nice place to stay at in Center San Jose. And if you like to drink and party or if you like casinos San Jose offers those things also. San Jose is a lot bigger than just the center downtown. It has areas like Escazu that are really fancy and places like La Sabana and too many other places for me to type inside San Jose that are very nice and very safe.

But most tourist dont come to hang around the city. They come to white water raft, Jungle cable slide, scuba dive, fish, surf, see the cloud forest, study serpants and Sea Turtles, climb Volcanoes, see the Whales and dolphins and many more adventurous things.

The best part for a tourist to enjoy of Costa Rica on a short term tour, like a week or two weeks is the North West of the country because you can go to the beaches on the Pacific Coast, you can see a Volcano and you can go to one of the cloud forests.

Remember that Costa Rica is not USA and it doesn’t have the same amount of money US does so of course the  buses are older and the roads are still a little 3rd world but thats the cool thing about traveling, you see different ways of life.

In USA houses have really expensive security systems, homes get broken into in the states also, you might not see a lot of bars or bob wire on houses in the states but you see cameras, alarms.

Well in Costa Rica people dont have money for cameras, digital security alarms so they have other ways of preventing there homes from getting broken into like metal bars around the house and windows but thats just the way it is here.

The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is very different from the Pacific coast, its more like visiting Jamaica because it has a lot of Jamaican decendents so you eat really good Caribbean food, and listen to reggae and the locals speak both spanish and patua (a english dialiect).

Limon is the province were the Caribbean beaches are and they are beautiful also but the center downtown of Limon is a very dangeous place to go to. You just have to choose if you want to visit the Pacific side or the Caribbean side, its your choice.

Joseph asks…

i am thinking about going to costa rica this august..? advice?

i am planning a vacation and i am thinking about going to guanacaste, costa rica in august. how is the weather during that time of year? and is it nice? what is there to do? info? i am thinking about staying at the hilton papagayo in guanacaste. reviews? any advice? thanks

Yaz answers:

The country of Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful… No place is ugly there. The weather is warm all year but the rains begin in May and go through November as a rule.

The Guanacaste area is drier than other parts of the country especially the central mountain ranges so the rain may be less in August than in other parts of the country up there.

If you are in Guanacaste, you are in Guanacaste…. Anything to do there is very secluded from other parts of the country. You can take a day trip or over night trip to Arenal Volcano but its many hours to get there. There are National Parks and other volcanoes to visit but a lot different than the Poas or Irazu areas.

I am sure the Hilton has tours up there and you may rent a car and take yourself and I am sure it absolutely beautiful, but sort of off the beaten track.

I, personally, am more fond of Manuel Antonio, Arenal, Tortugero triangle which is more tropical to me but then more rainy.

There is a little Indian summer so to speak in July and August. After that Sept,Oct and Nov are very wet !!!

Here is a Google map of the places I mentioned for you to get a better idea:

What is the best transport option from an airport to a hotel in Costa Rica?

I am staying at the Langosta Beach Resort in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, in the spring. I am arriving at the Liberia airport. What is the best way of travelling from the airport to the hotel?

If you speak Spanish I would say take a taxi, there are cheap and easy to find, but if you do not then take a shuttle bus, something the hotel provides for you from the airport. Have Fun,it is beautiful!!! I lived there for a year, it is the best!

Helen asks…

What is the best beach in Nicoya, Costa Rica and why?

Mainly interested in the quality of the beach itself, the sand, the water, the sea floor, not the surrounding town or resorts. Thanks in advance for your input!

Yaz answers:

Playa Hermosa hands down, i’ve been to all the beaches on the southern Nicoya as well as Samara, yes Montezuma is cool, I think the town is cooler than the beaches. I’ve lived there a few months out of the year and do find swimming in Montezuma to be sometimes difficult: rough waves, and very rocky, you must be careful. Santa Teresa Mal Pais is awesome for surfing. Perfect swells, great vibe and scene, but if you travel further down 15 min drive you will find a gem of beaches: Hermosa, near where Gieselle lives and Mel Gibson..that area, its amazing, the beach is long and wide, perfect palm trees align it, it’s usually empty maybe a few people 3-5 even on busy season, not too rocky you can walk out far the waves break out further than other beaches, its what you imagine a Costa Rica beach to look like: perfection!
