Costa Rica Earth- Costa Rica Tour and Travel can accept payment via bank wire transfer, or  using PayPal Credit Card System. Please specify preferred payment method and we will send instrucUons.



After your booking is taken and a deposit received, an invoice will be sent to you with the total balance cost due.
Once payment is paid in full and before your trip start date you will receive by email a set of vouchers that you should print and take with you to the different hotels and activity providers along your trip.


Our prices are quoted on a per person basis in US dollars. Taxes are included in all our quotes, one day tours or tour packages.


Itineraries scheduled during late November through April require payment in full at least 60 days before departure. Costa Rica Earth request deposits as soon as the client is committed to take the tour to guarantee rooms at hotels and other services.



If you want to change any service or part of your trip arrangements after the invoice has been issued there will be limitations. If we are able to make the change, it will be subject to an administration charge of US $30.00 per booking and payment of further costs incurred as a result of the change.



If a tour or program must be canceled less than 60 days before your arrival date no refunds are promised by Costa Rica Earth, we will do all within our power to refund as much as possible on a case by case basis we depend on the policies and procedures from independent suppliers such as domestic airlines, hotels etc.



If you decide to cancel the trip you must notify us of the decision as soon as possible. Cancellation will take effect from the day we are notified and a written confirmation is received by us within 24-hours of the original notification. A cancellation invoice will be sent to you, if you do not receive this please contact us immediately in order to prevent an increase in charges.

There are situations such as a family member that suddenly becomes sick or other such cases. In these or similar situations, we don’t have time to refill the space of your booking and we spend considerable amount of time and money into preparing your trip. We strongly encourage our clients to purchase trip cancellation insurance to protect your holiday investment due to cancellation or interruption, medical coverage along with emergency evacuation coverage and baggage loss protection.



If you have cause for complaint during your stay, you must bring it to the attention of our local representative immediately. They will do their best to fix the situation. It is irrational to take no action while on your trip, but then to write a letter of complaint upon return. If you do not raise concerns immediately, this may disturb our ability to investigate and take corrective action and it may impact on the way your complaint is dealt with.



If you return home early or cut your trip in situations where you have no reasonable cause for complaint about the standard of accommodation and services provided, we will not offer you any refund for the remainder of your trip not completed, or assist with any associated costs you may incur. Depending on the circumstances, your travel insurance may offer coverage for it and we suggest that any claim is made directly with them.

"Just returned back to Israel yesterday night (spent one day in Mexico City). Everything went well with zero issues!!! The plan was fantastic, and we really enjoyed very much. Thanks very much for everything :-)”

"This was our first trip to Costa Rica, so naturally, we didn't quite know what to expect. Costa Rica Tours helped make our vacation a true success. A friendly driver greeted us at the San Jose airport and took us to a lovely B&B, named Casa Lima. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were spacious and clean. Our next stop was La Fortuna, near Mt. Arenal. Our accommodations, once again, were great and with views of the volcano. The day trips we had set up were all fabulous. From the Hot Springs to the Rafting, everything was well organized and without delays. A must-see is the Manuel Antonio National Park. We have never seen so much wild-life EVER!! We had a great guide, Ricardo, who pointed out many birds, snakes, monkeys, etc. You don't have to worry about the food and water. It's all very safe and delicious!!"



Marisa & Allen, Germany & USA



"I meant to write when we returned, but got busy. Wanted you to know we had a great time and of course saw wonderful birds including the ornate hawk eagle, snakes and sloths's! Costa Rica is always so awesome! Donald who we had used before on our Cano Negro boat tour was our personal guide on the suspension bridges in Arenal and is super!!) Thanks again and we'll use you again for a trip later this year or next to the Osa Peninsula and back to arenal."



Leslie Kelley




"Este mail es para agradecerte el paquetazo que nos organizaste...fue fantastico! Todo salio muy bien y quedamos enamoradas de Costa hermosísimo. Estamos muy contentas por el servicio de todos los que conocimos. Muchas gracias!"



Isabel, Mexico, D



"I wanted to thank you for the most wonderful vacation we have ever had. The Costa Rican people are so nice...we want to sell everything we own and move down there, SERIOUSLY. We need to buy some prime land and then when the kids leave, build on it...



After being there for a week, it is really hard to come back here to Houston.... And guess what I forgot? Coffee!!!! Could you grab me a package of coffee from the airport and put it in Jeff Ensley's room for me? I need it for a present for a friend. I forgot to get it. Thanks again for an awesome time and making it a vacation we will always treasure.."

Becky Robertson, Houston Texas



"We have returned from what was the "Best" vacation ever! We have been to Italy, Ireland, Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Mexico (Atlantic and Pacific), and on cruises, but nothing was as well coordinated and felt so good as the trip you put together for us. The coordination of the tour guides and the transportation arrangements were flawless. The people of Costa Rica were also most welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed all of the sites and the places in which we stayed.



Again....IT WAS A WONDERFUL TRIP, and thank you, Nidia, for all that you did to arrange this trip...."

Nick - USA



"I just wanted you to know what a great trip we had recently. Anyone who is planning a trip to Costa Rica really needs to keep your firm in mind. All we did was tell you what we were interested in and you planned and booked the hotels and excursions for us. The hotels were very nice and clean. The excursions were more fun than a barrel of monkeys. The people of Costa Rica seemed to want all to have a great time. We met people from USA, Canada, Scottland and the UK. Thanks for the help. If we come back we will use your agency again."



Jean Pshigoda, Texas



"I just wanted to let you know that we had a great trip. It was perfect! I think Costa Rica must be the most beautiful country in the world. Thank you so much for everything. We enjoyed talking to each of your drivers. They were all very nice and helpful.



God bless you, your family, and your staff."

Lisa Gross- USA



"Well, where do I start? Gail & I had a 2 wonderful weeks in Costa Rica and a huge thanks go to both of you! We gave you a list of some of the places & things we were interested in seeing - you added to those and the end result was such a fabulous holiday.



It was indeed such a pleasure to meet you, Luis, in San Jose.

Highlights? Definitely the Arenal Volcano where not only did we hear and see the lava falling during the day but we woke at 3:00 a.m. and from the balcony off our room we could see the red lava falling down the volcano! To think, an active volcano and we were fortunate enough to see & hear it all, something I'll never forget!

I loved the afternoon we spent in the cloud forest at Monte Verde with our wonderful guide, Jose, who was so informative - it was so peaceful there, apparently most tourists go in the morning but it was just Gail & me that afternoon with so many birds, monkeys & other creatures that we would never have seen without Jose' help. Then he took us to the humming birds, dozens of them & we were "up close & personal" with them at their feeding time!


Had a great trip up to & on the Cano Negro river - on the way there our bus stopped to let a three-toed sloth cross the road! Of course, we were all out the bus & taking photos like crazy! Great fun on Extremo Zip Lines - loved it, what a thrill.


Manuel Antonio was a delight too and we did another fascinating hike through the national park. We managed to fit in an overnight trip to Tortuguero (Caribbean side) and although it was a long bus trip (due to a road closure because of a mud slide) there was some absolutely magnificent scenery to see - well worth the bus ride!

Back to San Jose where our guide Wally gave us a good insight to a very interesting city and many laughs, he's quite a character!

The Costa Rican people are SO warm and friendly - the language never became a barrier, they were there to help all the time.

Lowlights? We had to leave Costa Rica -, thank you, Costa Rica is becoming ever so more popular & your company will always be recommended by me."

Linda – Toronto, Canada



"I can not thank you enough for the wonderful vacation you put together for us! This is the first vacation I can honestly describe as an entirely positive experience. Everything you delivered. Every detail of our trip went exactly as planned. The level of customer service and our accommodations far exceeded our expectations! I have never experienced a more enjoyable and worry free vacation. I have already recommended your services to several of my friends. Please feel free to use me as a reference. I look forward to having you plan another adventure for us in the future!



Best wishes,"

Deborah and Skylar Whiteman



"We just wanted to say thank you for all your help making the bachelor party such a success. Everything went smoothly; not a single hitch in the entire trip. You guys are great."

"We came back from our Costa Rica tour and would like to express our appreciation of the trip organization. Everything was perfectly organized, all transfers and excursions pick ups were precisely on time, everybody was nice, speaks English and was a pleasure to deal with. All tour guides were very good and knowledgeable. All cars were new, comfortable and with air conditioning.



We would like to recommend it to everybody.
Thank you very much!!
Great job, was a pleasure to work with you!”

Vladimir & Lena Savikovsky. U.S.A.



“My daughter, Lauren, and I had a remarkable experience in Costa Rica. All of the plans you arranged for us were excellent. The hotels and their staff, as well as all of the drivers and guides were terrific. We have learned a great deal about your beautiful country through them. The Zip-line canopy experience was amazing and Antonio, our guide, has a great sense of humor. Our hike over the suspension bridges gave us wonderful views and lots of information about the wildlife in Costa Rica. Jose was an amazing guide for that. Melvin was equally amazing taking us on a hike through the trees near the Hotel Cloud Forest, carrying his large telescope and taking photos of birds for us. I think, however, we both had a special preference for Hotel Costa Verde and surroundings. It was truly magnificent listening to the monkeys early in the morning and late at night, seeing Toucans and an occasional sloth in the trees, and thoroughly enjoying the food (especially the flan).




I could go on for pages expressing how enjoyable our experience was. Please accept our thanks for arranging such a well-planned trip for us. We will happily recommend your company to friends and family. We look forward to returning to Costa Rica in the near future."

“I just wanted to let you know that everything went well with our tours down in Costa Rica. The tour with ecoaventura was really good. The driver showed up promptly and our group was small and intimate which allowed us to have a personalized tour guide. The other tour was a little bigger but everything went as described as well.



I will be in touch on my next trip to Costa Rica!"

Muchas gracias,

Luciano - pura vida! Florida, USA



"We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica. We loved your country. It is very beautiful, very mountainous and green. We had great weather. It mostly rained at night, a real deluge. We enjoyed Tortuguero. Saw lots of wild life. We also really liked Arenal and Monteverde Cloud Forest. We saw a lot of wild life on the Cano Negro trip. Rafael was our driver for most of the trip. He is a very nice man. He was always on time , usually early. We had a flat tire and the guys and Rafael changed the tire quickly and we were on the road again. We saw the resplendent quetzal. A real treat. Also saw all four kinds of monkeys, 2-toed sloths, 3-toed sloths, eye lash viper snake, 80+birds. We also really enjoyed the food. I had gallo pintos every morning for breakfast and loved it. Loved all the fresh fruit. Pineapple never tasted so good. We will certainly recommend your travel agency to anyone we know going to Costa Rica. Also we went on the Arenal hike and it came a downpour. We were drenched to the skin. Then we were taken to the hot springs and dinner. We were so shocked at the hot springs. The resort is a 5star resort. What a treat! We looked like drowned rats but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We recommend suggesting to people to take a change of clothes for dinner. I think our son and daughter-in-law might be going to Costa Rica in February. So I will give them your info. Thanks so much for all your assistance in making our Costa Rica trip a great experience. We had a truly wonderful time."



Thanks again,

Hazel and Dave



"I know it has taken me awhile to email you but I wanted to, finally, send an email to thank you for helping us plan an amazing honeymoon! Obviously, being that it was our honeymoon, we were very anxious that the trip run smoothly and it was perfect! My husband is NOT a traveler - but I think this trip may just have converted him as he absolutely loved it! Everything went as planned (well, other tiny glitches such as the tour bus once going to the wrong hotel to pick us up but they sent a car out to get us and we still made the horseback riding trip no problem).
Our favorite activities were the rafting and the coffee plantation tour - we were the only ones at the plantation that day so we got a private tour which was awesome! We brought home some coffee with us and love it so much we are planning to order more online!



The hotels were great but, by far, our favorite was Casa Turire! We simply fell in love with that hotel and the amazing and helpful staff and secluded surroundings - they even upgraded us to their superior room when they found out it was our honeymoon! It's true that the road in is atrocious, but we both thought it was worth it for the privilege of staying there and we hope to go back there one day!
Arranging a trip like this online can be stressful and we want to thank you for your prompt and helpful service - we spoke with many tour companies before booking our trip and you were by far the nicest and most helpful company. We very much appreciated being able to talk with people who had done a Costa Rica tour to get "the inside scoop" before we booked and will be happy to chat with anyone who is thinking of booking a tour!

Many thanks... and with hopes of returning to Costa Rica someday in the future,"

Linda and Jeff Johnston



"Eileen and I want to thank you for the great itinerary you put together for us. It was exactly what we were looking for, and our trip was even better than we had hoped for! Everything went perfectly; all of our drivers were on time, friendly and helpful. All of the daily tours you planned for us were great, but the highlights for us were the day we spent in Corcovado National Park, and the Culture Tour in La Fortuna. Those are days we will never forget. When we plan our next trip to Costa Rica, we'll look no farther than you to set up our trip. You did an outstanding job for us, and it's because of you that our vacation was outstanding.



Thank you very, very much, "

Neal & Eileen Dietz

"I must tell you that my friend and I had an amazing time in Costa Rica!! What a beautiful country and such friendly people! The best part has to have been the zip-line tour in Monteverde and the warm ocean beach at Manuel Antonio. Next time I will certainly spend more time at the beach! The accommodations were amazing! The accommodations were great! Gustavo was a great driver--I wish we could have had him all week! Manuel was nice, but drove a little crazy....although, most people do in Costa Rica! Thank you for putting together such a great trip! My friend and I are already thinking about going back next year, and will certainly ask you for help in planning again!"



Rhonda Marquardt
