About Costa Rica Expeditions
Pioneer in Central American Ecotourism

Created in 1978, 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 top-line tour operators.

Dozens of custom itineraries are available including one or more of the wilderness lodges with guided tours. Costa Rica's compact yet diverse topography enables the visitor to see active volcanoes, lush tropical forests, White Water Rivers, mountainous terrain and Pacific and Atlantic coasts in a week or less. Costa Rica Expeditions offers a varied and accessible brand of ecotravel, with as little or as much "roughing it" as the traveler desires.

The Guides

Guides of Costa Rica Expeditions are more than qualified; they are expert at revealing the subtle mysteries of Costa Rica's magnificent wilderness.

Without question, a qualified nature guide can be the single most important element of a successful trip. After their trips, we have asked hundreds of people what was the most important factor that determined the quality of their trip. “The Guide” is far and away the most frequently heard, and passionately-held, response." The guides of Costa Rica Expeditions provide the interpretive elements necessary for a rewarding journey through the rainforest, share personal insight into local traditions and customs, and in every sense are a guest's "escort to exploration."

At minimum, guides take the hassle out of travel. Their maximum potential benefit is as hard to quantify as, say, the value of friendship. But the quality of Costa Rica Expeditions' guides comes with a money-back guarantee.
