    I highly recommend AVOIDING G-ADVENTURES at all costs. The experience I had was poor, to say the least, but the way my complaints and comments were handled were beyond unacceptable. The tour was rife with issues. From a guide who was often intoxicated... Show more

    I travelled on the Basic Costa Rica tour in January 2017 and it was absolutely brilliant- perfect for a solo traveller. As part of the YOLO selection of tours, the group age range was 21-36 which worked brilliantly as there was a great group dynamic.... Show more

    This was a great taste of Costa Rica. This was a thorough tour around Costa Rica that you wish would never end. After doing twotours back to back, I had some knowledge that I was able to use on this second leg of the tour.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • What time shouldI I arrive on Day 1?

      You can arrive at any time on the first day because it is just an arrival day.

    • What are the National Geographic Tours with G Adventures?

      The National Geographic tours of G Adventures are designed to take you deeper into the cultures and habitats of the places they explore. They offer more inclusions, greater hands-on exploration, interactions with local experts, and the freedom to roam.

    • I will be flying from the uk and need to know which airport to travel to, as there appear to be 2 airports.

      There are two international airports, however as your trip starts and ends in San Jose, so Juan Santamaría International Airport (JSO) is the airport you are after.

      It is the main International airport for the San Jose region. The other is way up in the north.
