Costa Rica pricing guide
All our holidays are individually tailored to you and your family. Prices in Costa Rica do vary significantly depending on the season but are generally highest over Christmas and Easter whereas there are quite significant savings to be had if travelling during July and August. The exact price of your tour will also vary depending on a wide range of factors including how many of you there are, what level of hotels you want to stay in and whether you stay in one large family room or have children and adults in separate rooms.
One other major factor in determining the price in Costa Rica is whether you choose to self-drive, have private transfers or be escorted throughout by a private chauffeur.
As a guideline, our standard Costa Rica holidays will start from around £5,400 for a two week holiday for a family of four based on mid-range hotels and either self-drive or with private transfers. This is based on travel during the summer and excludes international flights. It assumes that the family will all be in one room.
If you are travelling with older children who will need their own room, the price will start from £6,500 for the same tour.
If travelling at Christmas or Easter, the price will start from around £6,000, based on the family sharing one room and £7,500 based on two rooms.
There are also some wonderful boutique hotels in Costa Rica, particularly on the beach, which are considerably more expensive. If you would like to use these hotels, prices will start from £8,000 for a two week holiday for a family of four.
If you would like to combine Costa Rica with Panama, a two-week holiday for a family of four usually costs a minimum of £7,180 plus flights.
We like our tours to be accessible to as wide a range of people as possible. If you are travelling on a tight budget please let us know and we will be able to suggest ways to bring the price down closer to £4,500 for a two-week holiday for a family of four visiting Costa Rica (during the summer).
All prices exclude international flights. These start from £450 per person with a stopover and £650 per person direct from London outside school holidays. During school holidays indirect flights will usually cost at least £750 per person, and direct flights a minimum of £950 per person. We will be very happy to provide a flight quote for you from your nearest airport. Please ask us for details.
Flights are available for booking approximately 11 months in advance. If travelling during UK school holidays we suggest that you book your flights as far in advance as possible to get the best fares. Prices will rise considerably the closer to departure that you book.
We don’t impose any age limits but some activities such a zip-lining may have minimum height or age requirements.
Rest assured that you have 100% financial protection if you book with us, as we are members of the Travel Trust Trade . All monies paid to us by you are deposited into a trust account and the funds are only released to Stubborn Mule after you have completed your holiday.
All you need to do is let us know a few key details about you and your family and we will do the rest. After a chat to understand more about you, we can produce an itinerary as a starting point and you can review this as many times as you need to until we get it just right.
