Easy to Difficult
These trips generally do not require a high degree of physical fitness, although a number of short walks are usually involved in order to experience the natural environment fully. Because this is a trip designed to meet your needs and interests, we can develop an itinerary based on your physical abilities to the best extent possible. Travelers should be aware that the heat and humidity may be very high and roads may be bumpy.
Important Information About This Trip
Our Custom Costa Rica trip provides an opportunity for you to design a Costa Rica adventure that suits your interests, time constraints and budgetary requirements. While we have provided several suggested itineraries, one of our Adventure Specialists will be happy to help you design something different, if you prefer. Prices are per person based on double occupancy. A peak-season surcharge may apply from December 20 to January 5, and during Easter week. A green season discount may apply from May 1 to June 30 and September 1 to October 31. Reductions may be available for large parties. Parties of fewer than three travelers will be led by a driver/guide rather than a driver and an NHA Expedition Leader, though we recommend adding an Expedition Leader for small parties at a surcharge.
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require that all guests have medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures (NHA), we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of NHA's medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
