This is a very fun, personalized 10 day, (9 nights) pickleball trip which was created for those wanting a pickleball vacation enabling people to tour some of Costa Rica AND play pickleball. Tony & Celeste understand, they are pickleball addicts too. Pickleball play will be in two (possibly three) locations: outdoor lighted courts at the beach, in the lowlands under covered, lighted courts, and also in the highlands, time permitting.

While your guides take you to some of the popular spots in Costa Rica, it is also their goal to give you a feel of the “Real” Costa Rica and the precious people that live there. By taking you to some of the more out of the way places, you’ll see Costa Rica like no one else!



  • Visit 4 secluded beautiful beaches. You may see beautiful scarlet macaws which frequent the shoreline trees.
  • Check out a well-known animal rescue reserve. You will be impressed by the work some famous surgeons have done to bring animals from certain death to full recovery. Many of these animals are released into the wild after rehabilitation!
  • Enjoy toucans, macaws, monkeys and many more animals of Costa Rica that reside at this lush habitat.
  • Take walks and/or free guided tours in the green tropical rain forests.
  • Tour an organic eco-coffee tour. This excursion is a definite favorite of all who have visited it.
  • Butterfly farm and gardens. The family owned business raises and sends chrysalises to all parts of the world!
  • Learn about some of Costa Rica’s cultural history in a famous artisan town.
  • And of course, we will have time to play pickleball at least 5 occasions, and up to 10 times, if you are willing!
  • Bring your camera! Each day has many photo opportunities
