Costa Rica Online Travel was born in 2001 when three Costa Rican friends in leadership positions in the Costa Rica hospitality and tourism industry decided to start an internet-based agency with a mission to promote and plan Costa Rican vacations, honeymoons, group trips, and golf vacations. The three friends - Max, Luis and Meni - together had accumulated over 40 years of experience in hotel management, resort management, rental car operations, and real estate development.
Two more friends joined the team a few months later. Sergio assumed day-to-day management responsibilities of the San Jose operation -- including internet-based sales, logistics, operations, and finances. Marc assumed responsibility of running the Rockville, MD, office, focused on group and travel agent sales.
Costa Rica Online Travel is home to approximately 20 tourism and travel professionals dedicated to designing unique Costa Rica vacation packages that are executed without a glitch. Our group excels in superior product knowledge, understanding each traveler's needs, securing long-term partnerships with our suppliers, and working hard to make each trip a memorable experience. We are organized and trained to work with you during the planning stages of your vacation, provide exceptional service while you are in Costa Rica, and follow up after you return home.
Costa Rica Online Travel is a member of the Costa Rican Chamber of Tourism (Canatur) and recognized by the Costa Rican Board of Tourism (ICT) as a certified tour planner for the country. We work with over 90% of the hotels and resorts around the country and have strategic partnerships with ground operators in popular destinations to supply tours and activities in every region. Our staff constantly travels the country reviewing both new hotels and existing resorts to inspect the service and quality firsthand.
Our unique relationships with suppliers allows us to offer very competitively priced vacation packages at preferred hotels and resorts in leading destinations throughout Costa Rica. You can work with one of our experts, receive professional advice and book all your travel to Costa Rica in one place and pay the same or less as if you were booking each service independently and dealing with multiple hotel, tour and transportation companies. We do not charge a retainer or request any money in advance, and your deposit is not paid until all services are reserved and confirmed.
As innovators in the travel business to Costa Rica, we offer unique services like our free online honeymoon registry, kosher catering services and the ability to book specific activities like golf tee times, spa treatments, romantic private dinners, or charter flights within the country.
