Costa Rica

Costa Rica can only be described as happy, welcoming and full of life; its native Tico people, their drive for Pura Vida (pure life) and the spectacular natural setting makes this a place you’ll instantly fall in love with.


The land of endless possibility; phenomenal street food, astonishing natural wonders and a culture so undeniably rich and immersive make Mexico one of the most extraordinary trips you’ll ever have.


Ancient civilizations, densely thick jungles, majestic volcanoes surrounding lake Atitlan, and the most colorful fruit markets are just some of the wonders you’ll experience in the Mayan heart of Central America.

Authentic Connections with People and Nature

5 star review
My trip to the Osa was everything I hoped it would be, and more. Lokal Travel has cultivated really special relationships with the communities we visited, so our group of 8 was welcomed so warmly into quaint accommodations that felt like comfy extensions of people's homes. We got to break bread with our hosts - the most delicious, homemade meals made with fresh, organic ingredients grown locally (often right in their backyard). We learned directly from these experts everything we dreamed to know about the jungle and life in Costa Rica. Their knowledge is deeper than books can teach, and their generosity reminds you what it means to be human. If you need a reboot, this is the right experience. Enjoy!

Peru exceeded our expectations

5 star review
This was such a great trip. We were delighted with all of the hotels. We were enthralled by the guides who took us around. The opportunity to visit the Potato Park and the coffee farm added a dimension to our trip and our appreciation of the economy of Peru that we would not have gotten from a generic package tour. And we were thrilled by the Manu Park and Tambopata experiences - all of the wildlife we got to see and the various parts of the rain forest we visited. Lokal did a fantastic job of personalizing our trip and discussing options as we worked out the itinerary. They also stayed in touch along the way.

A Must-do Adventure!

5 star review
This adventure is epic! It is very hard to put into words how amazing this trip is but if you are considering an out of the box adventure with hidden swimming holes, jungle hikes, horse back riding on a deserted beach, snorkeling and most importantly connection to locals and their stories then this is the trip for you! The itinerary was truly unique and off the grid, it would be very hard to logistically plan this on your own. What can I say, it was amazing and I wish I was swimming in one of those watering holes right now! Take me back:)

What if you could take the most incredible trip of your life while leaving a positive impact on the people and places you visit? This was the idea we had when exploring local communities in Costa Rica producing our documentary film. We've been working ever since to connect amazing travel experiences, local communities, and conscious travelers like you!

Watch our award-winning documentary film that inspired our company Lokal. The tropical rainforest of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula contains 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity on less than one millionth of the planet’s surface. Its incredible natural beauty has caught the eye of the tourism industry and the planned construction of an international airport threatens to transform the region forever.
