Costa Rica Budget Tours for Seniors
Seniors are always welcome at Caravan Tours.
We’ve constructed our Costa Rica budget tour packages so that each tour day starts and ends at a reasonable hour and most destinations are less than 5,000 feet in elevation.
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 on your own.
All ground travel is aboard air-conditioned, restroom-equipped Mercedes motor coaches that make frequent stops for rest and photo opportunities.
Come enjoy Costa Rica budget tours with Caravan and experience a leisurely, all-inclusive travel tour for seniors that is fully escorted by knowledgeable local tour guides.

Book A Costa Rica Budget Tour with Caravan
In Costa Rica, tourism is the number one industry, in part, because this is home to an amazing 5% of the world’s biodiversity. This is remarkable for a tiny country of fewer than 5 million people.
Costa Rica eliminated the military after the Second World War and invested its military budget into preserving its natural resources and taking care of its people. All health and education needs are also free, and the literacy rate is an impressive 97.8%!
Our Caravan Costa Rica budget tours allow you to experience the wonders of Costa Rica up close, from tropical rainforests and exotic wildlife to active volcanoes and turtle nesting beaches, plus so much more.

Why Travel with Caravan?
Why Travel with Caravan?
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
All tours conducted from start to finish by professional tour directors, who are fluent in English, experienced, and fun.
Caravan includes all activities listed in the tour itinerary page. Caravan does not sell any optional activities which can add hundreds of dollars to your tour price. Your free time is scheduled in great settings where there is no need to buy additional expensive activities.
Caravan will not bring you to overpriced shops in exchange for payments. Caravan gives you ample opportunity and time for great shopping, and the freedom to choose where and when to shop.
Great Value, Book Early
Caravan’s strong buying power gives you great vacations at prices much lower than you can find anywhere. In a typical year, most of our tours sell out quickly. Book early for the date you prefer and the best air fare.
How does Caravan Tours sell these tours for such a low cost?
Caravan delivers volume to our suppliers, who in turn reward us with their very best prices. We in turn pass these savings on to you, and you reward us by buying our tours. As volume continues to rise, we then receive even better prices from our suppliers, and we pass even greater savings on to you. This year our tours are better than ever.
