The variety in hotels, packages and vacation deals is overwhelming if you search the internet.
Here are some tips for a perfect Costa Rica vacation:
1 – You want to visit Costa Rica for only a few days and stay at a local hotel on the beach or in a rainforest. In this case, you can choose between contacting the hotel directly and book your stay or contact a local travel agency like us. Contrary to some people`s post on the internet, local travel agencies in Costa Rica can offer the tourist better deals and rates than the normal offer presented on the hotels web site. Local Costa Rica travel agencies have lower rates since they send a lot of tourists to the local hotels, and therefore can offer the traveler a better deal.
2 – You want to visit Costa Rica and stay for a week of more and visit more than one destination, plus have some tours in each tourist destination.
In this case I highly recommend to use the services of a local travel agency. Here are some reasons:
- Rates. You will get a better rate if you buy a package ( custom designed or not ) than if you start trying to put the trip together by yourself.
- No headaches. Some hotels sometimes have you waiting for an answer for days and weeks, while a travel agency has a policy of replying on no more than 1 – 3 days.
- Neutral ( No bias ) objectivity. The travel agency will give you a neutral view point, while each hotel you contact will probably speak highly of themselves, sometimes not mentioning the no so good aspects of the facilities or services they offer.
All these aspects also play when making reservations in one hotel only.
3 – Travel quality and service. The local travel agency will stay with you during the entire duration of your vacation. If something should happen, ( hotel not honoring the reservation for some reason ) the travel agency will intervene and get things corrected. See the local travel agency as your guardian and protector.
4 – Custom travel and knowledge. Costa Rica travel agencies and have staff constantly exploring new destinations, hotels and tours in each area. Therefore, they know first hand how hotels are, what tours are currently the best and where to go first and last, or what to do in each area.
So please feel free and contact us with any travel inquiry you have. We will send you a proposal according to the information received from you including number of people, arrival and departure dates as well as destinations and tours interested in.
