Vacationing in Costa Rica your first time will be an amazing experience. The type of traveling you do will largely depend on the type of person you are. Are you the hitchhiker type that throws a backpack on and just goes with the flow? If you are, this post probably won’t appeal to you as much as it will someone that wants to have their vacation a bit more planned out. Do a search on the internet and you’ll find loads of all-inclusive resorts in Costa Rica. They are located all over the country. Some are new and some are old. Some are luxurious and others more rustic and simple. Some will serve you Mackeral with broccoli, carrots and cauliflower or similar everyday you stay with them while others will prepare gourmet meals fit for a king. As you can imagine the price differences between these various all inclusive resorts can vary greatly.
On the high end, you’ll find resorts that run in the neighborhood of $200 to $300 per night, per person which covers your lodging and food. Most establishments charge additional for drinks of all kinds, tours you take and spa activities. On the low end, there are all inclusive deals for under $85 per night, per person. In most cases you do get what you pay for and most of the lower priced resorts are older and offer much simpler accommodations. Don’t be fooled by pictures on websites either. Most of them were taken when the resort was first built and show it at its finest moment.
The great thing about all inclusive resorts and vacation packages that include everything, is that they allow you to budget out the whole trip ahead of time leaving no surprises once you are in the country. In that way you get the most for your money since packages usually come with a discount off the individual prices of everything being included in the package. At Osa Mountain Village Resort we offer packages for 2 nights to 6 nights that include lodging, 3 gourmet meals a day, a variety of popular tours and attractions plus use of all the resort amenities starting at around $163 per day per person (price for a five night standard package in green season). Transportation is extra if needed and we can help you with renting a car which is what we usually recommend. Prices increase across the country for high and holiday season.
If you would like help with laying out an itinery for a trip, regardless of the length of your stay, please let us know as we have partnerships with many resorts in other areas of Costa Rica and can schedule your car or shuttle service and anything else you require to make your trip an amazing one. We can even create a custom package for you that includes everything you want and nothing you don’t want for your trip. Use the form below to inquire about this service.

This great, short video will show you a glimpse of what makes a vacation in Costa Rica such a special adventure. With more biodiversity than all of North America in an area the size of West Virginia, Costa Rica is jam packed with things to do. From the volcanos to the beaches there is something for everyone. In the southern pacific zone you’ll find some of the most untouched rainforest left in the country. It is some of the most biodiverse landscape on the planet and offers amazing adventures for animal and nature loving people. Take a zipline tour of the rainforest canopy with Osa Canopy Tour or go whitewater rafting on one of the 3 rivers in the area that offer good rafting. If you are into seeing monkeys and other animals schedule a hiking tour of Corcovado National Park or in our own private rainforest reserve. Bird watchers will be blown away by the number of birds they will see in the area. The Osa area is a birding paradise and our resident guide, Carlos Salas, will show you the birds, plants and animals that you would probably walk right by without a trained guide.
There is also kayaking on the ocean, surfing, horseback riding, river tubing, canyoning, cultural tours of the local indigenous people known as the Boruca Indians, and many other tours in the area to enjoy. Our goal is to help you get the most for your money while you are visiting Costa Rica. We know many of the best places in the country to visit and the lodging and tours that are the best in the area. At Osa Mountain Village Eco Resort we have relationships with other resorts, boutique hotels and tour operators all over the country and can help you plan a trip that will be remembered for years to come. Use the contact form at the bottom of this page to inquire about our packages and country wide tours.
