Itinerary

Luxury Travel Costa Rica

Please note: this private Costa Rica tour is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.

Osa Peninsula (2 nights)

Upon arrival at San José International Airport, board a private plane to the Osa Peninsula. Here you will stay at a lodge nestled in the forest overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You’ll have the opportunity to horseback ride through the lush rainforest and along the peaceful beaches of the Osa Peninsula. This exclusive lodge is set away from other touristic locales, providing a unique experience of the pristine rainforest.

Your guide will take you on a boat to explore the bay and its river tributaries along the Golfo Dulce. You’ll likely spot dolphins, crocodiles, and whales out in the gulf. Later, hike through the forest, crisscrossing the river until you reach hidden waterfalls. Enjoy an exciting night walk with your expert guide to witness nocturnal wildlife.

Pacuare Forest (2 nights)

Continue your luxury Costa Rica tour by visiting the unspoiled Pacuare Forest in the Cartago province with your expert guide. The Pacuare Forest is a 25,000-acre protected area with diverse plant and animal species.

After a private plane journey to Siquirres, embark on an exhilarating white water rafting experience to the lodge. Later, glide through the jungle on zip lines connecting the treetops, or embark on rappelling and canyoning adventures.

The following day, embark on a hike through the Talamanca Mountains, home to the Cabecar indigenous group – the largest in Costa Rica. You will trek on the paths which the Cabecar have used for centuries. The trail offers a wonderful opportunity to discover the secrets of the forest and interact with the ecosystem. Unlike other tribes, the Cabecar do not live in villages but in separate family units away from other neighbors, which has helped them to maintain their customs, language and culture.

Peninsula Papagayo (2 nights)

Leave the jungle by private plane and head to the Pacific coast. You’ll stay at the magnificent Four Seasons Costa Rica Resort – the keynote resort property in Central America – with easy access to two white sand beaches.

On the final day of your private Costa Rica tour, enjoy the resort’s many activities including rum tastings, relaxing in the spa, lounging on its two beaches, kayaking, and sailing. During your stay, your guide will take you on a private boat trip to explore the peninsula at sunset.
