About Us

Costa Rica For Less does not mean budget travel; it means budget-conscious travel for those who want the most value for a reasonable price --- “more for less,” if you will. If you provide us with the privilege to book your trip, you have engaged in the best-value tour operator in the market. As our excellent testimonials suggest, we offer 5-star service, the most value, and top experience, no matter what type of trip you book with us. ;A higher-expense travel company does not ensure more credibility, security, or safety, and it certainly does not guarantee a better trip. Unfortunately, oftentimes it is just the opposite since the “higher-priced” travel companies often do not have locals “on the ground” in Latin America who know the ins and the outs of what you want to experience as well as how to relate to you, the traveler.
We invite you to learn more about us and to allow us to properly present why we are the top choice in the market.

Lower Prices + Top Testimonials = Best Value
We specialize in making sure that you get the most out of your investment: the best value hotels; superior tour services; comfortable transfers and transportation; and impeccable customer service.

Returning Clients

Lower Prices + Excellent Service = Returning Clients + Client Recommendations.
Why are our prices significantly lower than most of our competitors? Do we cut corners? Do we have hidden costs? No, neither of these reasons are the case.
The main reason is that we are not middlemen, intermediaries, or just another travel agency inflating profits; we are tour operators, and we operate tours for our clients only. Another mutually beneficial reason is that most of our staff is located in Latin America. This allows us to keep our costs low (although we compensate our team members well above the average compensation for Latin America), and to be onsite to make sure your travel arrangements are carried out in a flawless manner. Finally, we spend significantly less than our main competitors on advertisement, as we rely on word of mouth recommendations to take care of our advertising for us.

Our Website

We have developed a user-friendly website that includes the most popular trips in the countries we provide services in. We sell virtually all trips and tours available in these countries; so if there is anything you can’t find on our site, just ask…we will have an answer for you and a referral if we cannot help directly. We have also developed website content that focuses on reality. Our itinerary descriptions are accurate; our hotel pictures really portray what the hotels you will stay at are like; and there are NO hidden costs.

Traveler to Traveler

We hire team members that have a passion for travel in Latin America. We are travelers selling to travelers. A key difference between us and our competitors is that we are experts on the destinations we sell, and we choose to share our travel experiences as a career. Our people are passionate about what they do, and it shows through from sales to service and beyond.

Our Team

We try very hard to find the best people out there. Those who join our team must meet the following requirements: Excellent, well-rounded education; superior work ethic; passion for travel; and a belief in giving back to their communities. Most of our staff is educated in either the United States or Europe. We have a diverse community that includes nationals of the following countries: USA, UK, Holland, Germany, Philippines, Brazil, and Peru.

We are a Travel Agency and a Tour Operator

The travel agency makes the sale (middleman). The tour operator does the legwork (reservations and all travel logistics). There are very few travel agencies based in the United States and Europe which have local tour operator offices in the countries they sell. We are one of the few, and we operate tours for our clients only, thus ensuring the maximum quality of service as we are solely focused and committed to our clients.

Our Outfitters and Providers

We have high standards that, whenever possible, meet U.S. and European travel standards. For many years we have extensively researched who the best outfitters and providers are. Consequently, we work with superior hotels, transportation services, tours, guides, and restaurants.  A key advantage we have when compared to our competitors is our “feet on the street,” and our personal knowledge, experiences, and capabilities everywhere our clients travel. This makes us extremely unique in the world of Latin American travel companies; and instills trust in our clients, compelling them to travel with Costa Rica For Less on a repeat basis…a demonstrated loyalty that is quite uncommon in the world of travel.
