Why should I travel with Coast to Costa?
Planning is either a bore or a chore. When you travel with Coast to Costa, you get to relax in the passenger seat, free to do little else but experience, learn, and enjoy. Basically, the expectations for you are set suuuuuuper low. Who doesn’t love that? Your flights, transportation and accommodations are all arranged for you. We provide you with optional daily activities, guides and a personal translator! It takes all the stress out of travel. You just show up, and let us do the rest!
Are the groups singles, couples, strangers?? Why should I travel with people I don’t know in a group?
We believe in that special, intangible, invigorating element created by traveling with a mixed group of people. Our groups are always made up of a mix of couples, singles AND strangers. We build a community and new friends every time we go on one of our trips. Remember all those friends you tearfully hugged goodbye at the end of camp while your parents sat in the car with the engine running, swatting away flies impatiently while you promised to K.I.T.? Yeah, it’ll be like that. But this time, you will K.I.T.
What’s the deal with breakfast?
EXCELLENT question. It’s included, every single day. Way to make breakfast questions a priority, FAQ dude! Respect.
Is travel dangerous?
Staying home is dangerous! I truly believe that getting out and seeing new places is the best way to grow. BONUS: I know ju-jitsu.
How are your prices so low?
The travel agency that we work under is HUGE. Because they are very reputable, Coast to Costa is able to get very cheap airfare and transportation for all their travelers.
But can’t I just find cheaper prices online
and go on my own?
Coast to Costa founder, Andrew has been a licensed travel agent for 4+ years and is able to use his contacts to get a cheaper rate on everything from flights to accommodation to transportation to food. He has many collaborators that he calls family, so the pricing is adjusted for the Coast to Costa crew. #takesavillage
Traveling is tough when you have to deal with haggling for tickets and flipping through a translation book in the midst of snapping photos. And when traveling is easy, traveling is best (if you don’t trust me, go watch Brokedown Palace).
Will there be puppies?
Yes, we usually manage to find a litter of puppies to play with wherever we go.
Do you accept credit cards?
Duh. Coast to Costa takes ALL credit cards, Venmo and Squarecash.
Do you offer travel insurance?
Of course! We offer very affordable travel insurance packages to ensure that you are covered and safe.
Do you offer private tours?
Absolutely! Contact us for rates and further information.
Will we wake up in a house with a pool overlooking the top of a RAIN FOREST?
Yep. Pics or it didn’t happen. Tulum 2016.
How many tours has Coast to Costa already done?
We've already organized 25 group tours to Cuba, 6 to Spain and 12 to Mexico.
I've never been on a group tour before. What do I need to do to prepare?
No sweat! Dig your passport out of your underwear drawer and you're pretty good to go. Oh, yeah, you might wanna throw in some swimsuits, sunscreen, and pants with a drawstring to fit as much paella as humanly possible. Other than that, we'll be sending any other pertinent info you need during the registration process. The point is that we do all the work for you, so you really don't have to prepare anything at all. Just keep ticking the days off your calendar 'til takeoff.
What if I don't speak the language?
The superpower of Coast to Costa is that the Coast to Costa crew speaks Spanish fluently and is always around, thus ensuring you won't ever be stranded without a translator. For the times when you go adventure on your own away from the group, we'll be gifting you with a handy-dandy language guide before you arrive at your destination. Oh, say, can you si?
