History


Our Costa Rica travel agency was started by chance when two recent college grads met in Costa Rica via a fateful “roommate wanted” ad way back in 1998.

As roommates, they found they shared a passion for travel (and cheap beer). In 1999, led them to launch the company that would eventually become Costa Rican Vacations. With a pitiful amount of start-up cash, an unreliable dial-up Internet connection, and a large supply of Rammen Noodles, they put together an email newsletter offering Costa Rica travel tips. Soon thereafter, they began making reservations on behalf of their readers. Seeing an opportunity, they launched a boutique agency offering customized Costa Rica vacation packages.

From such humble beginnings, today Namu Travel Group has a staff of over 60 full-time professionals in three countries – and our dreams are growing greater by the day.
