About Us

Bill Beard is the true pioneer of scuba diving and combining adventure tours in Costa Rica. On his first trip to Costa Rica, there were no scuba tanks in the country. In 1970, Bill brought tanks with him on his next trip, got them filled at Miller Gas, and started diving in Costa Rica from dug out canoes. He was the first working instructor and had the first professional dive shop in the country located in San Jose.

In 1974, Bill Beard branched out by opening a beach location in Playas del Coco on the Pacific Ocean and operated daily scuba diving trips from there and Playa Hermosa. Bill has many firsts to his credit, including bringing scuba diving and adventure tours to Guanacaste. Bill’s wife Nadine joined him in 1988 and they formed an association to combine scuba diving and adventure tour packages, the first in the country to do so.

Because of its compact geography, everyone in Costa Rica is presented with a cornucopia of choices. The biggest challenge in Costa Rica is trying to decide which combination is best for your vacation. This is where Bill Beard’s Costa Rica Adventure Travel comes in. We have been in Costa Rica since 1970 and know the country well enabling us to provide our clients with the best that Costa Rica has to offer. Our goal is to help you share in the wonders of nature and enjoy every minute of your vacation. Our commitment to quality and personalized service is unsurpassed. All of our Bill Beard’s Choice Tour packages are privately escorted in a modern, air-conditioned vehicle by one of our English speaking, Costa Rican naturalist guides traveling at your pace. We also offer non-private tours for vacations that are affordable for all budgets. Invariably, when we ask our clients what one thing stands out most about their vacation, the reply is “the guide.” Guides take the hassle out of travel. They provide education, insight into the host culture, and in many cases a lifetime friendship.

Our Costa Rican staff all have many years experience in the industry. Our association includes the best hotels, resorts and restaurants available. We have Costa Rica’s most knowledgeable, experienced operators, instructors and guides with proven track records providing you with the safest and best vacation possible. However, if you are on a budget, we also offer non-privately escorted tours where you combine with a variety of other customers and travel at a predetermined pace. We can adapt any package for self-drive if you prefer the freedom of having a car available for further exploration.
