FAQ About Tours in Costa Rica

How are Costa Rica tours on GAFFL different than normal tour companies?

GAFFL tours are DIY (Do It Yourself) tours. Traditionally, tour companies will plan everything for you and group you up with people. On GAFFL, tours are user generated. Any traveler with a potential itinerary can start a tour. If you like a tour, simply connect, then plan a trip together using the real-time chat, meet up, and travel together.

Can you give me an example how is it different?

Absolutely! Think about hiking the Grand Canyon. A traditional tour company will charge you thousands of dollars to put you in a group to hike the Grand Canyon together. On GAFFL, you can just search for the Grand Canyon National Park, find a trip you like, connect, plan, split costs, and hike together. You do not pay anything extra for tours and also save money if you decide to split costs with your tour mates.

Are Costa Rica tours on GAFFL free?

GAFFL does not plan any tour for you. We just help you connect with the right travelers. After getting connected, you are planning everything with your tour mates. That’s why we do not charge anything for tours.

How much money can GAFFL save me on my next tour in Costa Rica?

GAFFL can potentially save you 70-90% tour costs in Costa Rica. Traditional tour companies may charge thousands of dollars for a two week tour in Costa Rica. After getting connected on GAFFL, when you and your tour mate split costs for rental car and lodging, you are not paying for anything extra and on top of that by sharing costs, the overall cost per person goes down significantly.

What GAFFL Users Are Saying

Marie
Marie Arroseres
from France

"It’s really nice to have a platform like GAFFL with lots of travelers wanting to do the same as you, a real beautiful cultural exchange. You can meet people so easily and in a trustful way. We were four girls, from French, German and American backgrounds, without knowing each other from before. We spent an amazing week together, 2000km driving, camping on the way. We saw kangaroos, koalas, penguins and pelicans"

Saed
Saeed Alam
from Canada

“I have found GAFFL to be an amazing tool for finding similar minded travel partners to embark on an adventure. Through GAFFL, I had organized a trip to Mexico City last month and Quazi joined the trip from Victoria, BC. We spent 14 days of straight exploring, hiking, eating and drinking. Quite an amazing experience - all thanks to GAFFL!”

Scarlett
Scarlett Mansfield
from United Kingdom

"I accidentally scrolled across GAFFL and I'm so pleased I did. I met Amaia and immediately decided to road-trip together. We're spending 10 days together and it's great because we have so much in common. Couldn't have done it without GAFFL helping us find one another! It has honestly made NZ so much cheaper to explore as I get to split the costs with someone too​"
