Whether visiting Costa Rica is your once-in-a-lifetime trip, annual trip or just the spot you picked for this year there is one thing that is true – travel is not cheap (and if it is it probably isn’t going to be a great experience!). No matter what brings you to the “rich coast” that is Costa Rica, you should be looking for ways to make your dollar stretch. You want to spend as long as you can in Costa Rica, so that you can experience all that the coastlines and forests have to offer, but that can be hard to do if you are on a budget. That’s where all-inclusive travel packages come in and help.
Savvy travelers know that they can use an all-inclusive resort to tie up all the loose ends of travel so that they can just experience their surroundings. If you have to worry about how you are going to get from place to place, where you are going to stay
, what you’re going to eat and what you are going to do when you get where you’re going, your trip becomes more work than play. All-inclusive packages are available with all different sorts of inclusions and levels, so anyone from families to honeymooners, and from budget-watchers to big spenders, can find exactly what they need to customize their own vacation.
All-inclusives take the guess work out of traveling to Costa Rica, and allow you to kick back and enjoy a day on the beach, an adrenaline-filled rafting adventure, or an exploratory hike.
All-inclusive with Transportation
Transportation is included in most packages that are all-inclusive. Since this is one of the biggest expenses for travelers, it is one of the areas that you want to focus on for getting a deal. Check to see what the regular prices would be if you weren’t using an all-inclusive package, and compare it to the cost if you use the package. Transportation
is usually defined as airfare, and some packages will also include your trip to and from the airport. If you want more robust transportation options, look into other packages or see if you can build your own.
All-inclusive with Accommodations
Accommodations are another standard inclusion for all-inclusive Costa Rica travel packages
. Even if you are traveling to multiple regions within the country, all of your accommodations should be covered. This is a big perk and it makes your trip seamless.
All-inclusive with Meals and Drinks
Meals and drinks are likely to be included, though this is going to be limited to what your Costa Rica hotel has to offer. You’ll likely be able to have three meals a day, and alcohol will be excluded from the free drinks. Of course, you might want to plan to eat out a few times, so you could see if you could reduce the number of included meals so that you aren’t essentially double paying for meals. If you want the peace of mind of knowing that you can eat on site at your hotel, though, then an all-inclusive Costa Rica trip with meals and drinks is your saving grace. This is a great option for families and for travelers that have large groups.
All-inclusive with Alcohol and Entertainment
While a standard all-inclusive travel package to Costa Rica excludes alcoholic beverages, there are packages that include alcohol and entertainment as part of the check list. This type of package is popular with newlyweds and couples, since it covers everything they need to relax during the day and to party at night. A great place for couples to look into is South Puntarenas
. If it’s a more romantic trip that needs to have some luxury, try North Puntarenas

All-inclusive with Child Care

Whether it’s getting some R&R in the spa, going to a romantic sunset dinner or taking a adventure that is too intense for the little ones, you can do it all.
