Costa Rica Vacation

“Pura vida” (or the “simple life”) is more than just a saying in Costa Rica — it’s a way of living. This Central American country is one of the happiest in the world.

Costa Rica Hotel + Flights

You have loads of choices when it comes to finding a place to stay in Costa Rica. There are 7237 hotels listed on Expedia starting at CA $40 a night. But if you’d rather put your money toward unforgettable experiences, combine your hotel and flight and save with our Costa Rica Vacation Packages. You can also add a rental car and activities to your booking — do your vacation your way, for a whole lot less. Natural gems like Manuel Antonio National Park are waiting to be discovered on our expert-guided tours.


Your Costa Rica Vacation Itinerary

  • Day 1: Most travellers fly into Juan Santamaria International Airport, just outside San José. Drop off your bags at your hotel before exploring downtown San José, including Mercado Central and the historic neighbourhood of Barrio Amón.

  • Day 2-4: Book a rental car and drive north for around 3 hours to La Fortuna. This is the base for exploring Arenal Volcano National Park. Continue to Monteverde and explore its mystical Cloud Forest Reserve, zip line parks and suspension bridges.

  • Day 5-6: Next stop, Manuel Antonio National Park. Keep your eyes peeled for sloths and the resplendent but elusive quetzal bird.
