Sustainable Travel

Certification of Sustainable Tourism Commitment All of hotels used by Distinctive Expeditions hold a Certificate of Sustainable Tourism. In order to qualify for this award, the hotel must practice conservation in three areas. The resort must be environmentally conscious by ensuring any activity minimizes damage to the environment (flora, fauna, water, soils, energy use, contamination, etc.) and ideally tries to benefit the environment in a positive way (through protection and conservation). The property must be socially and culturally aware so that any activity does not harm, and may revitalize the social structure or culture of the community where it is located. Finally the hotel must be economically responsible by continuing to contribute to the economic well-being of the local community. A sustainable business should benefit its owners, its employees, and its neighbors. Distinctive Expeditions is committed to using hotel/lodges/resorts who are recognized for their efforts in these three areas of conservation practices in Costa Rica so our country can be enjoyed by photographers, travellers and citizens for generations to come.


Designing amazing “Life Experiences”


Distinctive Expeditions was born in 2008 by a local Naturalist Guide and Amateur Nature Photographer, Jeffrey Muñoz. His vision was to create a company, which would help people turn a simple trip to Costa Rica into one of their most amazing life experiences. With over 20 years of experience in the tourist industry of Costa Rica, Jeff loves to combine his knowledge of the country with his valuable understanding of the needs of people when traveling.

Top quality customer service

Life Experiences

The mission of Distinctive Expeditions includes providing top quality customer service. In designing these amazing “Life Experiences” for clients, Jeff is dedicated to looking after every little detail during the planning of each personalized itinerary. Whenever possible, Jeff serves as the Private Naturalist Tour Guide for the groups during the stay in Costa Rica as well. When other groups have pre-booked Jeff’s guiding services, Distinctive Expeditions has a group of the best Naturalist Tour Guides to enhance the trip. These guides not only have vast knowledge of Costa Rica to share but more importantly, are very personable, local friends who are completely dedicated to their profession.
