A custom made expeditions for a small group of friends is the ideal. That way you set your own dates and we match you up with the best guide or operator posible. The larger the group- up to 8, the lower the cost since you share the cost of transport, guide and guide expenses.
You can learn a lot about us on our web site https://www.caminodecostarica.org see a slide show of photos hikers sent us in 2018 in YouTube: El Camino de Costa Rica Photographs 2018, or a narrated version and check out our Facebook page @El Camino De Costa Rica to see all the excitement going on.
Our Facebook page @elcaminodecostarica has a lot of recent fotos and also some of the local day or weekend offers.
El Camino de Costa Rica is a 280 km trek primarily composed of rural roads, footpaths and trails through forests. It has a wide variety of terrain, altitudes, and microclimates and affords an up close and personal view of many different rural subcultures.
It is divided into 16 stages and it is best done in a small group with a guide. (We highly recommend a guide to avoid natural dangers and to provide you access to restricted or private areas.) The hike can be done in either 12, 14, 15 or 16 days depending on the strength of the hikers in the group.
We have some operators ready to custom make an expedition for you and a group of friends or you might be able to join a group already going.
Let me ask you some questions in order for me to determine the best hiking options for you:
1) What is your level of hiking [Beginners = max 20km and no more than 300m ascent; Intermediate= max 30km and no more than 600m ascent; Advanced more than 30km and over 600m ascent]
2) Do you want logistic support so that you only carry a daypack each day or are you willing to carry your backpack all the way?
You can see the route in Wikiloc.

whenever I first showed up on your webpage I am truly dazzled to peruse the blog data that you imparted to us however I recommend to you that you need to trade your facilitating with destroy facilitating administration utilizing the zap hosting discount code since when I am perusing a blog so I saw that a site doesn't answer rapidly and running sluggish.
I wanted to go for hiking El Camino de Costa Rica with my friends and to get information on that i used VPN for bilibili so that i can connect to the server of that place and arrange the hiking schedule.
ViaLig Journeys is also a wonderful possibility to do the hike. We have designed several trips crossing the country coast to coast on El Camino de Costa Rica, and also we can provide a customized trip for solo hikers in 12 days. contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or whatsapp (506) 88 17 53 30
Yes! It really is and they know where the rivers are you can bathe in and nice though small detours to avoid asphalt.
Tks very much. Thus the Urritrek proposal is a good way to cross.... I'll contact them. Best regards
Solo hiker Estimated Costs
•The average stay is about $40 US dollars per person with breakfast; dinners are about $8/lunch $6/. They are easily arranged.
•The guide is $80 (for one person or for a group )per day and you have to pick up his/her expenses which are usually a little less but it’s almost as though you are paying for it sharing the cost of one person among the group.
•Transport to and from trailhead is $150 for a maximum of 4. Bus from San Jose to Siquirres and Taxi there after as explained in the guide are about $50. And bus from Quepos to San Jose is about $10.
•There is about another $100 in special guide fees to cross on the indigenous territory Section 3 and the private forest reserve Section 4 to be shared by group.
•If you want your heavy things transported from lodge to lodge, there are local taxis that vary depending on the Distance because they have to loop around and this is sometimes more than an hour drive can be about $20-$60/ per transfer. One transfer would be $100 [Pejibaye to Rio Macho]
•The Camino de Costa Rica itself is free except for those two sections I mentioned above.
Thanks. Normally what costs a night on the camino and food/day ? Just to have a idea.
Certainely being with a guide and a group is much more confortable. I agree. But i maybe need to be alone. In fact i have a job with permanent social contacts, and i'm tired, maybe i need lonelyness.
I'm thinking of it. Were can i find tesimonies of trailers in solo ?
It’s much more interesting to go with UrriTrek. If you go alone you need to make ahead of time your own reservations. You need to get a Kolbi chip when you arrive at the airport and comunícate via WhatsApp up with the hosts. There are lots of places without cell coverage . It usually means I have to help you by communicating with me via +506 6036-6199. Its better to enlist UrriTrek’s assistance. Hardly anyone speak any language other than Spanish or Cabecar. But yes we have about 10 people on the trail doing it alone now.
Thanks a lot. I'll do it. But i'm not too afraid of walking alone, it looks like wikiloc ans the book are well done..... I suppose it's easy to find a bed or a place to sleep and eat....Let's keep in touch. I need to leave job and Europe 😋
Hi, Definitely you can join a group in March or any month. Write to email@example.com who are the mist active right now. Generally on our Facebook page @elcaminodecostarica you can find the offers that Costa Rican guides make and we post for
hello. I'm alone and asking me how it can be possible to join a group in march. Who can i ask to ? Gracias. Denis from Belgium
Gracias! I will reach out for the contact info when I get closer to traveling. Pura vida!
A certified bilingual guide charges $80-$100/ day plus expenses and there is a person that knows the route well a local guide who does not speak English who is actually one of the best guides I’ve ever had and he might accompany you for much less and in some places they might charge much less for his stay. We can try to set this up is you decide. Try to find 2-3 friends to go with you. That’s the best way.
I am an avid hiker and backcountry camper, so I'm used to carrying my stuff myself, but may consider hiring a guide. But i'm also a frugal traveler with limited income, so I would have to weigh my options very carefully.
How would one go about hiring a guide? Can you hire one for just a portion of the trip, like the portion that is extra challenging/difficult to follow?
