COMBINES: Coasting Costa + Rockin Rica


Coasting Costa

Costa Rica is an incredibly popular destination for backpackers, and once you arrive you’ll quickly see why! The nation boasts hundreds of kilometers of pristine white sand, crystal waters laden with surf, and bright rainforests abundant with wildlife, waterfalls and underground caves. This tour takes full advantage of Costa Rica’s incredible Western coastline and all the experiences the area has to offer. Take it up a notch with surfing, ziplining, rock climbing, rafting and countless other activity options, or chill with a coconut cocktail on the beach meeting travellers from around the world.

Rockin' Rica

This tour is for the adventurer! Turquoise waterfalls, imposing volcanoes, bright green Cloud Forest – travellers come from all over the world to experience the natural wonders of Costa Rica. From Santa Teresa to Arenal to Monteverde, you’ll get up close and personal with the flora and fauna of this diverse destination. At the end of each jam-packed day, kick back with your group and party the Tico way. Pura Vida!

Airport Transfers: If you would like us to book airport transfers for you, please let us know after booking the trip and we can make arrangements as needed. We will have more information regarding our airport transfer prices and times in your welcome email and subsequent group updates, so you can also keep an eye out for that once you've locked in your spot with a deposit! If you have any questions about this, don't hesitate to contact us prior to booking at info@lbwtravel.com or 1-888-749-3747.

Important Information Regarding Flights:

We currently offer to include round-trip airfare departing from any location; if your location isn’t listed, select ‘other' during your sign-up according to your region, and include your requested departure city in the comments box. We offer to book flights on your behalf to provide a smooth trip for you, but you are more than welcome to book your own flights, in which case you would select a ‘land only’ tour.

The difference in price between the land only cost of the tour, and your package price for the round-trip flights + tour option, is your flight allowance. If the cost of your flight is more than the flight allowance, then that difference will be communicated to you prior to booking the flights, which will then be added to your invoice and booked only after receiving your confirmation. Over the period of the Chinese New Year and during the months of July, August & December, flights tend to increase in cost substantially, so there will most likely be an additional flight fee to fly during those times; however, please keep in mind that flights fees can occur at any time of the year because the aviation industry tends to have erratic pricing.

If booking a tour within 1 month of departure, and are requesting flights, please contact us ahead of time as we may not be able to book flights on your behalf in that timeframe, but will be able to offer you an alternative solution.

Please note that due to time zones and travel time, flight departures are normally 1 day prior to the trip start date.

Seasonal Pricing is in effect for select tours, please see our FAQ for more information.
