Each group has a maximum of 14 people. Small groups are our specialty and it is one of the most important ingredients in an adventure tour. That way we are able to give personalize attention to all our clients.
We also specialize in family groups and groups of friends, who want to enjoy an unforgettable vacation in Costa Rica. If you are planning to travel alone, you have two options: Solo travel package or to join a bigger group from Banana Adventure Tours.
Finally, we offer the service of customizing your tour so that it completely matches your expectations and budget need.

Each package has a list of everything that is included. Once you make the final payment the only thing that you will have to pay for is your souvenirs, extra meals that may not be included in the package, any other personal thing that you decide to buy later on and an exit tax, which as up today is $28 per person payable directly at the International Airport.
