Costa Rica is the perfect destination for solo travellers. With endless opportunities to join group tours and hang out in friendly coastal towns or busy national parks, you’re never really alone in Costa Rica anyway!

Solo travellers are often looking to either get away from it all or to find new friends along the way. Luckily, Costa Rica offers a great mix of destinations and activities that are wonderfully suited to either style of solo traveller.

You can join in all the fun and antics of Costa Rica’s best beach holiday destinations and resorts, staying in great coastal locations and enjoying the laidback Pura Vida lifestyle that Costa Ricans are famed for. Relax on the beaches and do very little, except escape the rest of the world, or jump into the bars or join day tours to meet locals or other travellers.

You can also get off the beaten track and immerse yourself in local life or head deep into the rainforests in search of solitude or wildlife. Alternatively, you can join multiday tours taking you across the country, and make friends for life as you journey through Costa Rica.

Our Costa Rica experts can help you to create the best solo travel itinerary for your next Latin American adventure. Solo travellers can join group tours if you want to easily make friends or you can have your own private itineraries, custom made to suit your needs, your tastes and your time frame.

Solo Travel Highlights in Costa Rica

If you’re looking to explore Costa Rica on your own terms, then nothing beats a spot of solo travel. If it’s just you, then you can do what you want, you can go where you want, and you can make the perfect itinerary crafted to your pursuits and likes.

If you’re worried about getting lonely or you just can’t wait for your friends from home to save up the money or take the time off work, then you can always join organised tour groups as a solo traveller. You can even have a healthy mix, by simply joining day tours as you travel from one place to the next.

Solo travellers will love the Caribbean or Pacific coastline of Costa Rica if they are looking for beach vibes, a few cold drinks and epic scenery. Head to Limon on the Caribbean for beautiful snorkelling and diving. Travel to Tortuguero National Park for the chance to swim with turtles in the ocean or to see these majestic creatures nesting on the beaches.

There’s much more than this too. Solo travellers can visit Monteverde Cloud Forest for an ephemeral rainforest experience, they can climb volcanic peaks at Arenal, or immerse themselves in the hot jungles of Corcovado National Park. There’s hiking, snorkelling, diving, and great food, drink and cultural experiences awaiting you in Costa Rica.
