About Go Visit Costa Rica

Go Visit Costa Rica was launched in 2003 by Todd Sarouhan. After many years of traveling to Costa Rica and backpacking across South America, Todd felt inspired to give fellow travel-lovers an insider's look on the best places to visit and activities to do while exploring Costa Rica. Go Visit Costa Rica allows you to plan and book your entire vacation on this easy-to-use website. On GoVisitCostaRica.com, we go beyond mere tourist landmarks that only scrape the surface of the splendor of Costa Rica. With informative and detailed descriptions and thorough descriptions of secrets off the beaten path, this travel site provides you the entire spectrum of facts and tips to provide you all you need to know about Costa Rica.

Go Visit Costa Rica is way to connect travelers to the many beautiful locations - big and small, popular and oft-overlooked - that encompass Costa Rica. We are devoted to assisting travelers of all stripes by offering every hiker, mountain climber, surfer, foodie, lounger and snorkeler information on where to go, when to go, and how to get there.
