Expeditionary style, private trips in Costa Rica

Serendipity takes you — by foot, 4×4, boat, balloon, horseback, raft, bike, ropes and cables, ATV’s — to the most undisturbed places, without crowds, without compromises.

It’s your journey, with only your hand-picked companions. Your priorities for adventure or nature, for luxury or simplicity drive Serendipity’s design and operation of your trip.

Your Serendipity guide is the key to your journey. Driver and translator, naturalist and athlete, competent in first aid and car repairs, keeps the ice chest stocked, and a natural-born Nanny.

You move about in a rugged, comfortable 4x4 vehicle equipped for safety and spontaneity. Sleep in any hotel that looks good to you, or you chose from our select group of private villas.

True experts in Costa Rica since 1991.

Nature, pure and simple. See it, hear it, smell it. We reach parts of Costa Rica inaccessible to tour buses and large groups. Our guide-intensive Costa Rica Naturalist Vacations ignite your passion for nature while immersing you in tropical fauna at its most pristine.

With Serendipity, Adventure Travel means trying things you never thought you'd try, accomplishing something you never thought you'd do, immersing yourself in each adventure with Serendipity's outstanding guides. Serendipity pushes your spirit.
