Costa Rica Luxury Tours

Costa Rica by private air - curated land, ocean, and river adventures.

LUXURY TOURS COSTA RICA

During this private tour of Costa Rica, you will discover the highlights of a country known for its adventurous spirit and eco-chic accommodations. Begin in the Osa Peninsula, where your remote lodge will make you feel immersed in the surrounding rainforest. Explore isolated beaches during a private boat ride with a naturalist guide, who will point out dolphins and caimans, or hike through the lush jungle until you reach a secluded waterfall. The journey continues in the Pacuare Forest, where you may arrive at your lodge via a white-water raft, a unique luxury travel experience. During your hiking excursion to the Talamanca Mountains, follow a centuries-old indigenous trail, learning about the history and customs of the country’s largest indigenous group along the way. After a short hike through the jungle, thrillseekers will find adrenaline-pumping canyoning or ziplining adventures. Finally, your Costa Rica luxury tour ends with a charter flight to Liberia and a private transfer to your beachfront resort in the Papagayo Peninsula. There, enjoy a beach and water activities such as swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or simply relaxing on a sandy beach located steps from your accommodations.

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. This exclusive lodge is set away from other touristic locales, providing a unique experience of the pristine rainforest. Later that evening, experience the magic of the rainforest at night. With the assistance of your personal expert guide and a flashlight, uncover the unusual nocturnal creatures and their habitats.

The next day, 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. Alternatively, enjoy a birdwatching experience to witness some of the 319 bird species in the area. Here you will have a chance to see numerous species of birds, morpho butterflies and other mammals. Scarlet macaws, brown pelicans, all breeds of heron, all four Costa Rican monkey species, several wild cat species, sloths, coatis, agoutis, and anteaters all roam the woods of the lodge.

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 have the choice to stay at one of two magnificent beachside resorts: the Four Seasons Costa Rica Resort with easy access to two white sand beaches or the charming and tucked away Kasiiya Papagayo Retreat.

Both properties have two secluded beaches where you can take advantage of stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, or snorkeling gear to explore the many coves and hidden beaches along the coast. The Papagayo is filled with outdoor adventure from boating experiences at sunset, wildlife spotting, golfing, ziplining, and even a Tarzan swing for the brave! We typically recommend taking one day to relax and enjoy the amenities offered by your luxury hotel and spending your second day exploring the area.
