Why Costa Rica?

There are only a few places on earth, where in just one week, you can experience the variety of landscapes, natural habitats and wildlife as you can in Costa Rica. Best of all, it's just a few hours away from most U.S. cities.

Costa Rica is known worldwide for its stable, peaceful democracy, genuine hospitality and pioneering conservation efforts, which have enticed millions of travelers to explore the country's parks and reserves.

Costa Rica is also home to an impressive variety of habitats - cloud forests, dry forests, volcanoes, lowland rain forests, tropical mangrove swamps and thriving exotic plantations of coffee, mango, pineapples, bananas, among a dozen others.

If you are looking for some sunshine, human warmth, clean air and a much-needed detox, join Perillo Tours in Costa Rica and discover why Ticos (native Costa Ricans) are always smiling and chanting - "PURA VIDA!"

They found Fabio Salas, a jovial native Costa Rican with an exuberance for his land and culture. Fabio and the Perillo team are proud to introduce a new and authentic way to discover Costa Rica.

It's the very definition of experiential travel! Explore the classic highlights that have made Costa Rica so famous, while staying at iconic, off-the-beaten-path resort hotels, personally inspected by Steve and Carol.
