Step 1: Travel at the right season

When you are traveling to Costa Rica, you need to know that there are three specific seasons in most of the hotels and resorts: Green Season, High Season and Peak Season. These seasons are defined by special days like Holy week, Christmas and New Year, and the rainy season.

Obviously, traveling in Peak Season is not a good idea, if you are looking for cheap deals.

To find the cheapest all inclusive vacation packages, it will be better if you travel in high season, or even better, in green season. This way you will find the best hotel deals and the lowest rates in domestic flights and tours.

Green season is generally after Holy week and before Thanksgiving and if you plan to travel in that period you only need to take into account the rainy season. Luckily, Costa Rica weather is fabulous and even when we are in rainy season, rains usually come in the afternoon, leaving the mornings sunny and the night sky filled with stars.

Step 2: Use shared transfers and book regular tours

One of the ways to save money and create the cheapest and best Costa Rica all inclusive vacation package, is by using shared transfers and booking regular tours instead of private services. And this does not mean you will have to travel with tons of people or in the public bus, there are good and cheap options for you, if you decide to take this advice.

Regarding the shared transfers, there are transportation companies that offer shuttle transfers to almost all destinations. This option is cheaper than private transfers and you will travel safe. You only have to take into account that they have specific pick up times depending on the hotels, and these are set schedules that we are not able to choose neither change.

In case of the activities, all Costa Rica tour companies offer both, regular and private services. If you book a regular service, you will have to share the transportation and the guide with other people, and it will vary, depending on the season, dates and kinds of activity, could be from 10 to 15 people. This will save you some money, and will also give you the opportunity to share the experience with people from other countries.
