Costa Rica has become 2022’s holiday hotspot. For those seeking to sink into a slower pace, there are now hundreds of package vacation deals on the market, but which to choose?
Between its tropical beaches, staggering biodiversity and scintillating culture, it’s a wonder we haven’t all been holidaying in Costa Rica for years. But, now that the secret is out, holidays are booming. In the past few years, dozens of online travel agents and booking platforms have sprung up to offer competitively priced package holidays across the island, including the colourful capital San Jose. We recommend using a reputable online platform to help you with your search. We’ve selected three of the best companies for finding Costa Rica all-inclusive vacation packages, based on customer feedback, reputation, prices and policies. For the best rates, we recommend visiting each website to get a good deal.
As one of the world’s largest online travel agencies, Expedia is our top choice for all-inclusive vacation packages in Costa Rica. Travellers can choose from a staggering range of hotels, from budget to luxury. Expedia’s main advantage is its “flight+stay” offering, which offers reduced rates for travellers willing to book both together. For instance, a five-day trip with flights from New York to San Jose will set you back less than $950 dollars. Each property features a customer review rating and a good range of images. Hotel descriptions are sparser than competitors, but it’s easy enough to cross-reference hotel reviews with other platforms, like Trip Advisor.
True to its name, Cheap Caribbean specializes in budget holidays to the Caribbean. While Costa Rica might not strictly sit in the region, it does sit on the Caribbean sea, which explains its inclusion. There are currently 12 all-inclusive packages on offer, departing from a wide range of cities across the United States. While the selection might be modest, the prices are competitive. All options include flights, hotel stays and full or half-board, making it the best option for those seeking the full all-inclusive experience. According to the website, staff visit every resort too, giving the descriptions some added credibility.
Price Line is the best option for those looking for a cheap package deal at a budget hotel. Prices are the cheapest we’ve found online, with one package deal currently priced at just $511 per person for seven days. Each hotel features reviews, though there are fewer than competitors. For the best deals, opt for the Bundle+Save deal, which includes flights, hotels and, sometimes, car rental. Priceline is rated highly in terms of customer service too, with customers frequently commenting on a fair cancellation policy.
