I hardly know where to start in describing how helpful CRS was during our week long trip to Costa Rica. First, they helped put together exactly the itinerary that I ask for. I expected that. What I did not expect is that they rescheduled an activity for me when our plane was 2 1/2 hours late in arriving, and cancelled another activity when it became clear that we could not make it. They were literally available 24 hours a day for emergencies and the customer service was superb. Most impressive was the help they gave in dealing with the car rental agency when we had a minor accident on a very rainy muddy road. They were able to negotiate insurance coverage when I could get nowhere with the rental agency. I can confidently say that CRS tours will have your back every step of the way in your Costa Rican vacation. Each and every agent with which I dealt put forth every effort to make me happy. If I could, I would give them more than 5 stars. I highly recommend CRS tours.

Green. This will be the word that you will remember the most when visiting Costa Rica; a green that stretches from the sinuous coasts of the South Pacific to the warm plains of the Northern, a green essence that climbs splendid mountains like the Cordillera de Talamanca, covering ancestral volcanoes like Poás, Irazú or Turrialba.
In a territory of only 51,100 square kilometres, the varied natural landscapes are extraordinary, nature is developed here with strength and amazing energy. Such a diverse topography is the ideal place for adventure tourism. In Costa Rica, you can zipline through the canopies of giant trees, raft in beautiful rivers surrounded by vegetation, climb deep cliffs, bungee jump and of course surf in the Pacific and the Caribbean.
Luckily Costa Rica’s territory has a large number and a variety of beaches on its two coasts. In the North Pacific, the Gulf of Papagayo, Tamarindo, Playa Hermosa, Playa Dominical, Sámara and Nosara are extensive beaches with important tourist developments ideal for family holidays with many attractions for children; Near the Central Pacific, you will discover beautiful beaches such as Playa Blanca and Manuel Antonio where couples will find the perfect setting for their honeymoon. Towards the south, the beaches of Dominical, Uvita and Ballena are important ecotourism destinations. On the Caribbean coast, you find white sand beaches such as Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Gandoca where the sea is crystalline.
Natural Protected Areas
The natural protected areas represent 31% of the national territory. Here, there are majestic primary and secondary forests, cloud forests such as the Monteverde Reserve, Santa Elena and San Gerardo de Dota, extensive rainforests such as Braulio Carrillo National Park, Sarapiquí, Corcovado National Park, Manuel Antonio National Park, the unique transitional rainforest of the Carara National Park, or the dry tropical forest of Santa Rosa National Park in the North Pacific.
This infinite green also runs through extensive plains such as those of La Fortuna, where the Arenal Volcano rises, or those of the North Caribbean where the rivers flow in sweeping meanders until reaching the sea. Mangroves and wetlands such as Caño Negro, Sierpe and Tempisque give rest to many birds. Costa Rica has a wide choice of hotels with attractive offers for all budgets.
All these areas are home to inexhaustible biodiversity, one of the most abundant that represents 5% of the planet. More than 900 species of birds including hummingbirds, red macaws and toucans coexist with 208 species of mammals such as sloths, monkeys or felines such as jaguars. Insects, reptiles, amphibians and butterflies are also spread throughout the territory.
Nature is to be found everywhere, from the 1200 species of orchids that garnish our trees to life sprouting on the beaches every year when millions of green turtles, leatherback and hawksbill sea turtles reach the Caribbean coast at the National Park Tortuguero to lay their eggs, travelling from miles away. Similarly, at Ostional, in the Pacific thousands of Lora turtles (Kemp’s Ridley) reach the beach every year.

Best travel agency
Our Traveler Planer Jimena Rodriguez from CRS tour help us for 12 days tour to San José, Arenal/Fortuna, Flamingo, Monteverde, Quepos/Manuel Antonio. We did not have any problem. everything went well. I recommend this tour company to others.
We booked the Romantic Adventure Tour from CRS tours for our honeymoon, and it was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. CRS gave us some great options for excursions and lodging – we enjoyed every place we stayed. We also tacked on an extra day in San Jose and signed up for a food tour. All of the excursions and tours were on time, very professional, and great experiences! They even had a rental car company meet us at our white water rafting exit with our rental car. Another couple recommended CRS tours to us, and I’m so glad they did. The prices were also better than other companies that I received quotes from. I would certainly recommend CRS Tours to anyone looking to travel in Costa Rica for the first time.
Great Honeymoon Experience
One of the BEST well organized adventures I’ve been on. CRS developed a trip to our specifications, staying at Eco friendly lodges/hotels and provided an opportunity to see the many diverse landscapes of the country. We drove 1500 kms over 23 days, with no issues. The car was great, good on gas, Wifi was awesome in the car using the WAZE app, the routes where well planned out,so we got to see SO MUCH of the country,from the Pacific Coast – to the Caribbean, inland to the volcano’s and up to the cloud forest and more.Each check in was flawless and everything was beyond our expectations. .Costa Rica is an outdoor paradise, with Birds, unbelievable beaches, stunning landscapes, unforgettable sunsets and sunrises, and the people are friendly and kind. This was a trip that will be remembered all thankx to the professionalism of CRS. THANK YOU!!!
