Are you looking for sample itineraries for your Costa Rica trip? Look no further! In this post, I have outlined our favorite Costa Rica itinerary ideas. You’ll find recommendations for itineraries of 4 days to 1 month, very helpful for your Costa Rica trip planning.
We have created many itineraries for our family and friends and Yeison did it for during his 20’s when he worked for a tour company so we know exactly how complicated and frustrating it can get. Even though Costa Rica is a small country, there are so many places to see! So we have written these itineraries to help you out and feel free to change them up according to your own wants and needs.
We have done all of them ourselves so that we give you the best information and recommendations.
