We are Ara Tours...

A retrospect by Daniel Küng, co-owner and president of ARA Tours:

We need new, innovative destinations for our catalogue! This was the challenge I received from my former employer in Switzerland, a tour operator where I worked as a product manager. I immediately started reading accounts, statistics and reports and then came across Costa Rica, a country pretty much neglected by tour operators at the time but highly praised by backpackers.

In May 1993 I travelled to San José to get a better idea of the country and was instantly captured by the people, the nature, the climate and the vast variety of attractions – so much actually that without further ado, I decided to make Costa Rica my new home.



Our modular product includes a huge variety of hotels in all categories, short round trips, excursions, rental car, different transfer options and domestic flights as well as complete travel itineraries for your inspiration.
