 Around Costa Rica between 7 - 14 days
Now you can drive and sleep in Costa Rica entirely at your pace through taking advantage of these great value drive/hotels packages which provide a rental vehicle and allow you to select from a large choice of places to stay according to where you are and what you want to do.

More than 60 hotels and lodges strategically located all over the country give you a great variety to choose from, and the chance to avoid rigid bus or shuttle timetables which remove your freedom to travel when you want. Open Voucher lets you rent a car throughout your stay, so you can choose when it is time to leave and where to go next.

7, 10 or 14 vouchers according to the length of your stay, each worth one night´s lodging. Your room at your chosen hotel is just one phone call away: you just call up any of the participating hotels, or call us and let us do it for you. Tell them you are traveling on the Open Voucher and that you are on your way there. If they are fully booked, dont worry: you will always have more options to choose from in the same area, and just to keep your spirits high, in the morning we thought you will start your day better with delicious Costa Rican coffee and a breakfast, it is included too.

Upon your arrival at Juan Santamaria International Airport, a guide will be waiting for you and drive you to your hotel of choice in San José. During the trip you will be introduced to the key facts of Costa Rica, and will find answers to any questions you might have regarding the program. You can discuss your itinerary (if you have one in mind already), or let our people advice you . We will provide you with a brochure illustrating and listing all the participating hotels, together with an "easy to locate them" map.

We suggest you to let us take care of the first night booking upon arrival, be it in San José, or if your flight comes in early in the morning, anywhere else.

The car rental will come to pick you up at your hotel (or directly at the Airport), you will get your rented car and...that is it! You are on your way to freedom & adventure...!

Mauricio We had a wonderful time and would definitely like to visit Costa Rica again. We mainly followed your suggested route with some variations. The car was very good, the GPS was essential as was the cellphone.

The hotels we enjoyed were: Gran Hotel San Jose, The Sapo Dorado in Monteverde - probably our favourite The Samara Pacific Lodge - run by a very nice French couple Rancho Casa Grande in Quepos The Quality Inn in San Jose Thank you Mauricio for all your help it was a wonderful holiday for all of us. best Nicholas

Mauricio, it's 7.30 p.m. on Monday evening. It is our last night in Costa Rica.We leave tomorrow at 10.45 a.m. for Dallas where we spend a day before leaving Wednesday eveining for the U.K.

We have just come back from playing golf at Valle del Sol which is a delightful golf course. Yesterday we played at Cariari which is supposed to be the best and was nice but Valle de Sol is beautiful.

We have so enjoyed our stay in Costa Rica, where we have found such wonderful and friendly people. As I told you the Punta Leona resort was marvellous. We stayed 4 days at the Parador in Manuel Antonio and it was first class.

We think that the Open Voucher system proved very successful for us and would be happy to recommend it. Thanks again for your advice and help. Kind regards. David S-UK

Hello, We had a great time. We went from San Jose to Hermosa Beach/ Jaco; Jaco to Manuel Antonio, Manuel Antonio to Arenal, Arenal to Limon/ Puerto Viejo and then back to San Jose...The weather was fantastic. The Car rental was easy..we were able to upgrade to an automatic...without any issue. The hotels were very nice and clean and the hotel staff was extremely helpful. Our favorite places were the Eclipse Hotel in Manuel Antonio and Totem Hotel in Puerto Viejo. The staff at both places was incredible!!!! Well we will be coming back in February to check out Tamarindo and look at property. This company was great and I look forward to booking future trips with them.

Mauricio, Everthing worked out well...except for the problem with the dates. It was an great trip, and now we know enough to plan the next trip! One night in Arenal, two nights in Monteverde, three nights in Playa de Coco, last night was in San Jose.

Our last night was in San Jose and we stayed in the Presidente (really nice!). Driving in downtown was interesting without street signs! I passed your information to a customer today. I gave a good review Mark

Mauricio, Thank you so very much for all of your help in planning our Costa Rica trip. We travel a lot and this was the best trip we have taken so far. I have told everyone I know about the wonderful experience we had with the open voucher.

Our experience with the Volcano Lodge, Hotel Clara Luna and Hotel Tango Mar was exceptional! We did run into a problem at Hotel Cariblue, but it was a blessing because we had the best experience at La Costa de Papito. We are looking forward for our next "Pura Vida" Costa Rica experience and we will definitely use the open voucher. Please commend all of your staff and yourself for such a job well done!! Thank you so much Mauricio!!! Kathy Z

Mauricio, Our trip to Costa Rica was a great adventure! We are sharing our pictures and experiences with all our friends and family. We do plan on returning next year for vacation, but want to stay longer. I only had one problem and it was my fault. I left both our cell phones at the Flamingo Marina Resort, I had taken them out of the luggage to charge them for our return home.

We called the Resort many times, but were not able to recover the phones. Other than that, the total experience was our best ever. Many of our friends are interested in the open voucher. Thanks, Sandy Talley

Mauricio, Gary located your website by using google as a search engine. He had checked a local travel agent to book an all inclusive trip as we do every year, but after researching the internet, found the open voucher and decided to try this.

You have been so kind to reply and inform us on everything, we hope to do this every year with your company. The following helped us make the decision. 1. Easy to read webpage 2. Choices of hotels 3. Price per couple Thanks, Sandy T.

After searching many websites for the best value open voucher scheme to Costa Rica, we chose Latin Discover due to their in depth knowledge, fast and efficient response and friendliness. They also offered the best value. Federico was exceptionally helpful and friendly and always on hand to answer any questions that we had to help plan our trip. We hope he comes to London soon so we can show him round our country!! We had a wonderful trip and all the hotels offered were excellent, we did not know which to choose as they were all so good! and the car provided was reliable and had no hidden costs which is sometimes so often the case. I would highly recommend Latin Discover and will book with them again when I visit other countries in the region. A fantastic trip!

The Latin Discover Car and Hotel voucher program contributed significantly to our enjoyable stay in Costa Rica. The program allowed us to save a lot of money and it also provided us with the flexibility to travel to different parts of the country on a whim. We had no trouble getting a room at the highest quality hotels and our rental vehicle was very reliable. We drove over 1000 miles in 9 days.
