Costa Rican Adventures

Had another great group on our photography tour. Here are some images from 2-hours of wandering around Playa Nacascolo on the Papagayo peninsula after the tour.

Found this manakin on one of our pre-tour outings. Lots of howler monkeys, spider monkeys, sloths, birds and a croc. What fun!!!

Costa Rica 2018 Tour is SOLD OUT!!! Custom tours available.

[08/02/17]   There are 2 spots left for the February 2018 Costa Rica Tour. Who wants to go to the tropics next February?

[07/15/17]   Although it's unfortunate that Rikk Flohr cannot join us for the Costa Rica photography tour, I'm delighted to report that Jeff Morgan from Isle of Wight in England will be our professional photography instructor on the 2018 tour. Jeff previously accompanied us in 2008, was a featured presenter during TCACCC Spring Break last year and has been running workshops in Europe. More information about his impressive qualifications can be found at

We are limiting the tour to 6 participants in 2018 for an unforgettable photographic experience. Visit for more information.

[06/28/17]   Unfortunately Rikk Flohr is unable to join us for the February 15-22, 2018 tour. Basic photography instruction will be provided by Laurie Hernandez. Contact us for more information.

Checking if there is enough interest to run another photography tour to Costa Rica. Tentative dates are February 15-22, 2018. Looking for 6-8 participants. You might even see a few of the mammals we saw during the 2017 tour. Rikk Flohr will be the photography instructor.

A collared aracari is a member of the toucan family but less common than the Fruit Loops variety.

Here's a shot from our Feb. 2017 tour. The red-eyed green tree frog is as iconic to Costa Rica as a toucan.

OK, I have to admit I've been pretty lax updating the Worldesigns Tours page. That said, we just finished an amazing tour and I'd like to share our journey through photos.

For the next week I will be posting images from the trip. Here we go...

[06/04/15]   The next tour will be February 11-18, 2016 with an optional beach extension There is a maximum of 8 participants (currently 6 people have expressed serious interest). Itinerary and Pricing for 2016 will be posted in a week or so.
Pura Vida!!!!

[08/09/12]   The tour itinerary is now available.

[08/01/12]   Our January Costa Rica Tour date has been announced! Itinerary coming soon...

[03/15/12]   Another fun-filled tour in Costa Rica! Thank you to everyone who made it a special trip.

Spent some time scouting a different area of the country. Found some real gems and plan on adding a new itinerary in 2013. Stay tuned...

[10/20/11]   We hear there are inexpensive charter flights from Minneapolis-St Paul to Liberia, Costa Rica direct, running Friday to Friday. Dates are set for 2012 Tours but wondering if there's interest in an abbreviated Costa Rica tour in 2013. Anyone?

[07/11/11]   Only 2 spots left for the 2nd tour in February 2012. Anyone want to go to Costa Rica?

[06/18/11]   Two weeks left for a $200 discount on 2012 tours...request a registration form today!!!

[04/30/11]   2012 Tour Dates Announced!!!! Itinerary Coming Soon...

Minnesota winters are long...taking in a Costa Rican sunset takes the edge off.

[02/27/11]   Scouting for next year's beach extension is a tough job but we're up for the challenge. Found some luxury accommodations and delicious food.
Of course the birding and wildlife are ever present.

[02/26/11]   We had a great group this year and an amazing amount of wildlife.

Every year we meet people coming back from Costa Rica who say they didn't see monkeys. Our group saw Howler Monkeys, White-headed Capuchin and spider monkeys - at least one species every day.

More on the wildlife soon with photos...

[02/17/11]   The tour has officially begun!! We went to the beach this morning and photographed Howler Monkeys and White-faced Cappuchin Monkeys. What a great way to start the day.

[02/10/11]   Starting the countdown to the February Costa Rica Tour...
