Student Travel

Unlike many other destinations, Costa Rica doesn’t offer much in the form of student travel. However, since Costa Rica is such a cheap country to visit, many students can get by without the need for student discounts.

There are a few tour operators and hotels in Costa Rica that offer discounts for students. There aren’t enough to justify buying an International Student ID card or similar item. Many places in Costa Rica that offer student travel discounts will take your student ID. Save yourself some money and just bring your student ID.




You are more likely to find student travel discounts on activities than you are accommodations. Don’t expect much more than a few dollars discount.

The best way for a student to travel in Costa Rica is to take advantage of all the hostels. These accommodations are truly student travel friendly.
