Join Us - We'll Be Heading to Costa Rica!

Jerry and I started looking at tours to Costa Rica. What we found for a small group with a standard fixed itinerary would cost around $3600 per person based on double occupancy (air and insurance not included) for nine days. Not what we are looking for.

First, if we are going to go that distance, I don't want to spend only 9 days. Second, the per diem is a bit on the high side. So instead, I’ve decided to work with my travel agent on a totally customized 14 night itinerary, where the cost will be under $2900 per person based on double occupancy (air and insurance not included). 

The group will be small and personalized -- and the pace will be slower (mostly active seniors) with a focus on wildlife including Tortuguero, Arenal, Monteverde and Manual Antonio.  For those who like a little more on their daily agenda, optional activities will be available to fill out your day.  The plan right now is departure in early April 2013.  Singles are welcome although there is a single supplement.  Final itinerary and cost will be available in a few weeks and the number of participants will be limited.

We hope you'll think about joining us. Please contact me at if you'd like your name put on the interest list! Remember it will be a small group and when reservations open, it will be on a first come, first served basis. So get your request for information in early and you'll be in the first group that receives details.
