Home Hotels Transportation Tours Activities Maps Vacation



In these economically challenging times there is still the desire to have a special vacation to a beautiful, friendly country like Costa Rica. In an effort to make a Costa Rica vacation available to as many people as possible, we have added this Economy Index page that brings together the less expensive hotels and tours offered on the oldest and largest Costa Rican tourism site, CentralAmerica.Com.


We have added some new economy hotels with rates for a standard double in the $50 - $100/night range. We selected these hotels based on our experience and constantly monitor feed-back from our clients.

We won’t tell you that a economy hotel room is the same as a $500/night room at the Four Seasons. However, Costa Rica is not a country where you will want to spend a lot of time in your hotel room. The economy hotels we have chosen to recommend are clean, comfortable, and well-managed.

Many of our clients like to mix and match hotels, using the money they saved on economy hotels in some locations to splurge on a moderate or even luxury hotel at another stop. Using the rate designations on our Hotel Index page, it is easy to look at the many options by price range. Of course, our travel advisers can also help you with any questions about hotel choices.

Following is a list of recommended economy hotels:

We have added some economy tour packages that take advantage of the economy hotels, tours, and transportation represented here. You can find cheaper tours to Costa Rica on the internet. We don’t attempt to offer the cheapest tour, only the best value for your money. (All tour packages can be modified to suit you needs).

We are also offering some great deals on economy rental cars. Driving is a great way to get to know the country at your own speed. Roads have improved considerably in the last several years so 4-wheel drive vehicles are not necessary for most tourist destinations. We can advise you if 4-wheel drive is desirable for your vacation plan. Car Deals

There are some great airfares available now. We have seen fares from Los Angeles for less than $350. Since airlines change their fares with dizzying frequency, we don’t try to post fares on the net. If you contact one of our travel advisers they will be happy to help you find the best fare available. Great airfares!
