All Inclusive Guided Costa Rica Budget Tours
Looking for a Costa Rica budget tour package?
Travel Costa Rica on a budget with Caravan Tours, pioneers in budget travel tours and all inclusive tour operators since 1952 under the same family ownership and management.
Arthur Frommer commented in his Budget Travel Show, “I am still impressed that the large Caravan Tours has scheduled almost-daily departures from January through March of its escorted tour of the beaches, volcanoes and rainforests of Costa Rica. It’s a sign of how firmly tourism has taken hold of that Central American republic, and a tribute to the appeal of unsullied nature, which Costa Rica represents. However, it’s also because of the brilliant, affordable pricing of this tour by Caravan.”
Cheap Costa Rica Tours – Book Early
Each year, most scheduled Caravan Costa Rica budget tours sell out quickly, so be sure to book early. Caravan tours to Costa Rica offer travelers an unrivaled standard of excellence that no other budget tour company can match. There’s simply nothing in our class anywhere near this value.
Caravan Costa Rica tours:
- Are approximately 30% less than most of our lower cost competitors
- Are fully escorted by professional Tour Operators
- Are all-inclusive (all activities, hotels, airport transfers, ground transportation, meals, etc.)
You don’t even have to tip…it’s included!
Budget Tours for Seniors
Seniors are always welcome.
We’ve constructed our Costa Rica budget tour packages so that each tour day starts and ends at a reasonable hour. Caravan follows a well-paced, unhurried itinerary with most tour bus trips lasting no more than 2 hours. We’ve also arranged the tour so that you will have at least a two-night stay at each hotel.
While the tour itinerary always includes plenty to do and see you are also free to pass on any scheduled activity and spend leisure time at the hotel or exploring the community. You will also travel in air-conditioned comfort aboard a restroom equipped Mercedes motor coach that makes frequent stops for rest and photo opportunities.
Most of our Costa Rica budget tour destinations are less than 5000 feet in elevation with the exception of Poas Volcano, which is at an elevation of 8800 feet above sea level.
Come enjoy a budget Costa Rica tour with Caravan and experience a leisurely, all-inclusive travel tour for seniors that is fully escorted by knowledgeable local tour guides.
Budget Family Tours
Bring your family for your next vacation and still travel Costa Rica on a budget. Caravan’s budget tour to Costa Rica is an eco-friendly, fully guided tour that has something for everyone.
Where else can you experience (for one low all inclusive price) active volcanoes, volcanic hot springs, rainforest hikes with naturalist guides, aerial tram rides through the rainforest canopy, and guided riverboat tours?
There’s plenty of opportunity for chance encounters with Costa Rica wildlife, including white-faced monkeys, 3-toed sloths, toucans, and a visit to the giant leatherback turtle nesting beaches in Guanacaste.

Excellence Since 1952
You can trust our years of experience with tours of superb quality and excellent value. Caravan has enjoyed the same family management and ownership since 1952.
Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
Stay at park lodges, scenic resorts, and excellent hotels in great locations. See hotel descriptions on each tour page.
In Costa Rica, Panama, and Guatemala, Caravan includes all meals. For USA and Canada tours, included meals are listed on each itinerary page. In Latin America, bottled water is provided free on the motorcoach and purified water is provided at the meals.
Enjoy complete sightseeing with more visits, extra features, and local guides.
Fully Guided by Tour Directors
