Is This Trip Right for You?

Tropical climate year round makes Costa Rica an ideal location for your moderate to activity-filled holiday, which may include zip lining, hiking, swimming, sailing, wildlife viewing, beaches, hot springs, volcanoes and so much more. Accommodations suit the natural, biodiverse environment. Clean, comfortable lodges in regional colors and décor may have fan-cooled rooms or air-conditioning, depending upon location. Specifically, some hotels in Monteverde are built in the traditional local style and have no air-conditioning which may be uncomfortable during heat waves. Road travel will be picturesque and allow you to experience the uniquely "Costa Rican massage" of often unpaved, pot-holed roads providing the only access between cities. Expect uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes. This is a Classic program. For more information, click here.

13 Day Classic Costa Rica with Tortuguero & Manuel Antonio, April 2022
Dummy Image

I cannot say enough great things about our Tour Manager, Giovanni . Just giving "Excellent" on all the survey questions does not feel like enough. His extensive knowledge of the ecosystems, geography, culture and history of Costa Rica made the trip particularly enjoyable. He was thorough in his management of the large group without introducing any sense of pressure or rush and kept everything moving smoothly. He was quick and well prepared to deal with a (very minor) injury on one of the walks, and really made it feel like we were being escorted by an old friend more than being on a tour. Kudos both to Gio and to Gate 1 for a system that recruits and equips such capable directors. Every Gate 1 employee we interacted with was terrific.

10 Day Classic Costa Rica with Manuel Antonio, April 2022
Dummy Image

We recently completed the 10 Day Classic Costa Rica with Manuel Antonio tour (Sunday departure). Our tour manager Manfred was excellent in so many ways. He was very knowledgeable about every stop and destination and provided us with the information we needed to manage the time we had on our own. Manfred was an excellent ambassador for the country of Costa Rica, sharing details about the geography, history, agriculture, customs, food, wildlife, flora, infrastructure, etc., all the while showing great love for his country. He was also a strong ambassador for Gate 1, and we felt he had our safety and comfort in mind. I give Manfred a 5 Star rating, for sure!

13 Day Classic Costa Rica with Tortuguero & Manuel Antonio, February 2022
Dummy Image

We just completed the 13 Day Classic Costa Rica with Tortuguero and Manuel Antonio. We had an absolutely fantastic experience! I am so glad that we went to both Tortuguero and Manuel Antonio; some folks skipped one or the other and we saw so much in these locations that it truly would have been a loss to have missed them. Our Tour Manager Rafael was terrific! He was extremely knowledgeable about the animals, birds, reptiles, flora and fauna of Costa Rica and was very conscientious in making sure that everyone had a chance to see the animals, etc, that his eagle eyes had spotted. I also enjoyed his stories of the history of Costa Rica during our bus rides. We had two drivers, both named Jose, the first to and from Tortuguero, and the second for the rest of the trip. Both were excellent. I am so glad I wasn't having to negotiate those narrow winding roads! I especially appreciate Rafael's efforts regarding the mysterious pre-Colombian Stone Spheres of Costa Rica. I asked him early in the trip if we would see any, and he said yes, near Manuel Antonio. Then he made sure to have Jose slow down the bus so we could get a good view and photos. The other passengers didn't seem familiar with the spheres, but they were fascinated with them when he told us about them. Our traveling group was fun, we had a great Tour Manager and excellent drivers, what's not to love! Many thanks Gate1!

We just returned from our trip, 14 day kaleidoscope of Costa Rica. WOW, what an amazing experience. What made this trip so special was Manfred our Tour Guide. You could not meet a nicer man, an absolute diamond. The knowledge, passion and pride for his country and Gate 1 was above and beyond. So professional, kind and courteous. Always smiling and great fun, I miss him already. There aren't enough words, I only wish he could be our Tour Guide wherever we go. Special mention to Luis our coach driver (beautiful brand new coach, with toilet.. bonus !!) Fantastic driver, always felt safe with him behind the wheel, over the hills and round the bends. A true gentleman. Manfred and Luis are a great team.. All the excursions, accommodations and meals were exceptional. Saw so much of this beautiful country and will be back one day. Thank you Gate 1 and your team for a truly wonderful unforgettable experience. This trip was everything we imagined and more. Highly recommend and will be traveling with your company in the future. Spot on from start to finish, well done.

Edgardo far exceeded our expectations throughout our visit to Costa Rica. His depth of knowledge of Costa Rican culture, economy, history, plants and animals was incredible. His ability to connect with each traveler and create a safe and inviting atmosphere was above and beyond. Edgar has a true passion for sharing his beautiful country with visitors. He was timely and diligent in helping the group stay on track and have the most enjoyable experience possible. He truly went above and beyond in all capacities. Luis, our bus driver, prioritized our safety and comfortability in all capacities. The bus was kept absolutely spotless and his driving was impeccable, along with being a very kind person. Both Luis and Edgar prioritized our safety and health through their diligence in upholding Covid-19 precautions. I cannot thank them enough for their contribution to this amazing experiencing. Based on my experience in booking, and with Edgar and Luis, I will certainly be joining another Gate1 trip in the future. If you are able, please pass along this message to Edgar and Luis. They both deserve immense gratitude and appreciation. Thank you!

Our tour guide Edguardo was the Best Tour/representative I've encountered in 20 years. He was Exceptionally professional, knowledgeable of all things, environments and individual food exceptions on the tour. Ensuring safety and comfortable conditions for all. Our first driver Luis was the Master of our Limo. An extremely skillful driver who ensured time, comfort & safety were his paramount concerns. Both these gentleman deserve the title Mas Excellante. Other individuals who gone above and beyond were our Dining Manager Brauner and our breakfast person Hillary both working at the Hilton in San Jose.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Costa Rica with Gate 1. One of the main reasons our trip was so great was due to our tour manager Manfred. He was so knowledgeable about all of the birds and wildlife we saw and was equally good leading the San Jose city tour and providing suggestions for where to eat and what to do in the other towns we stopped at. Manfred was just a great combination of an organized, problem solving tour manager and a fun person to talk to and spend time with. He really knew his stuff and gave us all a wonderful trip to remember.

Costa Rica was amazing! This was my 10th Gate 1 trip so I knew it wouldn't disappoint. Our tour manager Ricardo and driver Luis were consummate professionals: courteous, personable, and excellent at what they did. Ricardo in particular was a wealth of knowledge, humor, and national pride. The accommodations were comfortable, the food was delicious, and the itinerary was full, varied, and interesting. I went zip lining, which is something I had never done or thought I'd do. I'm still a bit astonished! It was a beautiful, colorful, vibrant and welcoming country. I got home and recommended the trip to everyone I know! Thanks for another great trip.

My Gate 1 Travel 10 Day Classic Costa Rica with Tortuguero tour was awesome. It was a great opportunity to experience the natural beauty of this amazing country. The boat ride and excursion to Tortuguero allowed me to see a diversity of wildlife including sloths, iguanas, monkees, and caymens in their native habitat. At Arenal National Park, the hike along the trail ended with spectacular views from a lava field at the base of the volcano. At the Monteverde Cloud Forest the tour started by seeing a variety of hummingbirds followed by a walk across eight hanging bridges surrounded by colorful flora and fauna. The Gate 1 Costa Rica itinerary was at a comfortable pace with just the right mix of organized sightseeing and free time on my own. The hotels were excellent even in remote locations such as Tortuguero, Arenal, and Monteverde. The Studio Hotel in San Jose resembled an art museum and the staff could not have been more welcoming. The meals were just the right combination of buffets and sit down dinners. The most memorable was the farewell dinner in the rooftop restaurant of the Gran Hotel Costa Rica looking down on the Christmas lights of the San Jose Plaza de la Cultura. This followed a walking tour that included a visit to the ornate National Theater. Our excellent tour leader, Luis, was also a photographer who shared with us his outstanding photos. He confirms my belief that Gate 1 employs the best tour guides in the industry. Costa Rica was my sixth Gate 1 tour and fourth different tour this year alone. I am sold on the quality and value offered by Gate 1.Thank you Gate 1 for yet another fun and exciting vacation. A blessed, safe, and healthy New Year to the Gate 1 family.

It was the first time my husband and I did a group trip like this and we were able to meet amazing people. Above all the biggest highlight of this trip was our tour guide Jose. He is an amazing tour; knowledgeable, kind, sincere, and really went out of his way in making this a mind blowing trip. He took us to so many places that was rich in culture and meaning. I felt safe with him and really feel like I left Costa Rica really KNOWING Costa Rica. Thank you Jose and Gate 1 Travel.

We have just returned from the 9-Day Classic Costa Rica trip. Our tour guide, Ricardo, was absolutely superb. I especially appreciated his extensive knowledge of the area and how well-organized the pace of the tour was. It definitely made our trip a fun and memorable experience. Special thanks goes to Jose, our bus driver. I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenic vistas and local, natural wildlife as we drove across the country--from the numerous kinds of birds seen from Selvatura Hanging Bridge in the rainforest, to the relaxing Eco Termales Hot Springs near Arenal Volcano, to the beautiful sunset at Tamarinda Divia Beach. This has been one of the best tours we've had with Gate 1 Travel thus far, and we are already looking forward to the next one!
