Guided Tours Costa Rica

While our various programs and projects offer the most flexible guided tours Costa Rica has to offer, our itinerary is carefully planned to maximize your time and enjoyment. Our experienced volunteer coordinators and guest services guide you from activity to activity, with transportation and breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.

We have planned early morning excursions, including snorkeling with the sea turtles or riding zip lines through the rain forest canopy, and structured events in the afternoon and evening to get to know your fellow volunteers and coordinators. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are handpicked to give you a true flavor of Costa Rican culture and unique cuisine. Like we said, these are the best guided tours Costa Rica has to offer.
