Unique travel experiences

Let’s go to Costa Rica!
Tailor-Made Adventures Designed to Make a Positive Impact.

When to visit

Best general times to visit are from December through April, which is the dry season. Or July and August when there is a little more rain but thinner crowds.

What you will be doing

Costa Rica is a nature enthusiast's dream. Outdoor activities range from hiking, rafting, wildlife viewing, snorkeling, zip lining, and more. Costa Rica also offers many opportunities to visit communities and learn their ways of life, immersing yourself in local culture.

Travel Style

Costa Rica is best enjoyed outdoors in nature. There are accommodations that fit all travel styles, from rustic all the way to luxury. First time travelers love Costa Rica because it is safe and has good infrastructure, but adventurous and off the beaten path enthusiasts also have a lot to explore and enjoy.

Best Ways to Get Around

You can either rent a car, hire a driver, or take public transportation. If you rent a car please be aware that many of the small roads are not paved. There is also a domestic airline that can help you get from one side of the country to the other quickly.

Our Story

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.
