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.

We are:



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.


Costa Rica is a magical destination for nature lovers. Visit our country to explore wonderful ecosystems, get in touch with the locals whose kindness will captivate you. Choose one of the many programs that ARA Tours has designed according to our specialities to satisfy the tastes and preferences of all who wish to discover the beauties of this great paradise.


Selected Moments is the brand for our Incentives and Luxury division. We offer  creative programs, unforgettable experiences, a selection of the best hotels and a personalized service at the highest level for the sophisticated explorer and for your incentive group.
