You may be familiar with Ellen Morse of Gluten Free Travel-Us and her amazing gluten free travel itineraries. Every few months, she unveils a new itinerary, and this time...it's Costa Rica. If some of her other recent gluten free itineraries (Prague, Croatia, China, Japan, India, and two bike tours through northern Italy) haven't been high on your own bucket list, perhaps Costa Rica is just what you're looking for. It offers a good value, close proximity, and little in the way of a language barrier (most people speak very good English). It's a great alternative to Europe for anyone concerned about security and safety. Plus, Costa Rica has had more than a century of democratic tradition and a high quality of life. Best of all, it presents a unique blend of relaxation and adventure...all while enjoying some of the most spectacular natural beauty on earth.
As with all of Ellen's itineraries, it's not a group tour. You travel when you want...and with whom you want. Your trip to Costa Rica can be customized based on your desired dates of travel, length of stay, interests, and budget. The day-by-day itinerary laid out on our Costa Rica page is just a suggestion, based on some of Costa Rica's most popular and unique sites and activities. No matter what your itinerary, Ellen will make arrangements at restaurants and hotels that have been carefully vetted for their degree of gluten free knowledge.
Ellen was diagnosed with Celiac at a very young age, before Celiac was on many people's radars, so she has decades of experience with both gluten free dietary concerns and the challenges that travel can sometimes present. She delights in knowing she is opening up travel opportunities for her GF clients that, until now, haven't been possible.
You'll have an opportunity to visit (and even rappel down) waterfalls, enjoy pristine beaches, take in the local culture and cuisine, view an active volcano, go whitewater rafting through mountains, hike in the rainforest, and visit national parks and forest reserves. Other options include horseback riding, zip lining, and visiting museums.
You'll stay in deluxe accommodations -- even some 5-star resorts -- which all offer a value unlike many other countries. This is a perfect destination to consider, whether traveling as a family, a couple, or with a group of friends or extended family. There's something here for everyone!
