Costa Rica Sloths

Positive Impact

We believe tourism should be educational, entertaining, and above all sustainable. We focus on a low-to-no environmental impact and strive to support the local communities that host us. All guides follow strict “greenethics.” Waste materials are packed out of the forest and collection of any kind of natural material is forbidden—even as a small souvenir. Costa Rica Sun Tours was among the first in Costa Rica to receive the Certificate of Sustainable Tourism designation, awarded by the Costa Rican Tourism Board.

Top 5 Reasons To Visit Costa Rica With Costa Rica Sun Tours

Best Tours In Costa Rica

The geography and natural beauty of Costa Rica and the vision of forward thinkers in the 70’s to preserve our great diversity of ecosystems, combine to create a nature lover’s paradise. Once on the ground, there is no denying there is truly something for every style of traveler. Icing on the cake? The

Pura Vida Factor: The idiosyncrasy of the Ticos. The country alone beckons without the need for marketing; your choice of inbound partner plays into the ultimate guest experience.

Wildlife: Wildlife abounds in Costa Rica. Visit the right locations, and you can easily encounter monkeys, iguanas, colorful birds, and butterflies. With the help of our guides and some luck, you can see a greater variety of wildlife, including scarlet macaws, resplendent quetzals, toucans, parrots, poison dart frogs, sloths, and more. The marine coastal habitats enjoyed by naturalists, sports enthusiasts, and beachgoers also have rich aquatic fauna. Learn about our wildlife observation and bird watching photography tours.

Active Adventures Abound: With the right ingredients—in this case, a creative, enthusiastic, and detailed team, combined with a destination that has it all—you have a recipe for a great Costa Rica adventure, no matter how you define it! Costa Rica Sun Tours offers itineraries in one of the following four categories: Classic Programs, Authentic Adventures, Premium Escapes, and Family-Friendly.

Easy Access: Costa Rica’s territory extends 200 miles from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea. Due to its small size, a traveler starting from the Central Valley can reach most of these diverse habitats or either coast in just a two-to-four-hour drive. Numerous flights into San Jose (SJO) and Liberia (LIR) exist.

Diversity of land: Costa Rica possesses one of the richest biological heritages on earth, concentrated within its small territory. This is due to its tropical location, position as a land bridge between North and South America, and varied geography dominated by a series of mountains dividing the nation from northwest to southeast.

Just a few more reasons: Costa Rica is a safe destination with the right support, tourists are warmly welcomed, Costa Rica boasts many accessible national parks and intense biodiversity, we have reliable and experienced tourism service providers, the public infrastructure: roads, electricity and water, is good, excellent medical care and communications, and of course the ever-sought-after tropical climate.
