About us

The life is a trip

That’s the way Tours On Place Costa Rica was born, after a longer trip of several months around Europe, where our president and founder was visiting different tourism offices and asking to the travel agencies representatives about Costa Rica and how they promote this country daily, learning about the wholesaler needs and how to cover them.

At the moment this foreign visitor was focused in investigating and understanding a little more the market and the culture of this old world.

Was in Hanover, Germany, where a recommended guy said “I would like to sale more tours and activities in Costa Rica, but is not possible because the traveler don’t book this services in advance, they want to be there and see the sunshine to decide what to do, that´s why I sell only hotels and flights”… Brainstorm Immediately took place in a conversation about what is today TOP Costa Rica.

An idea became a goal, we created “Worldwide Tourism Marketing Developer S.A” in November 2016, we named the project “Tours On Place Costa Rica – TOP.cr” the brand which brings all the tours and activities that you can find in Costa Rica at only one click of distance.

Today we are working with a group of professionals in order to be right there where travelers see the sunshine and decide to reserve a tour or activity, actually, through the help of an interactive and high tech online platform.

Because the life is a trip, travelers reserve “in live”…

Although he always reminds us that it is never stopped learning and that this is just the beginning, that in some place in the country is starting a new tour or activity and we have to go and find it out.
