Costa Rica Vacation Packages: Why This Is #1
After setting up exclusive trips to Italy, the Maldives, Brazil, Thailand, Transylvania or Argentina & Uruguay, we are opening an invitation for 10 people to come with us to Costa Rica in 2023. 10 amazing people, 9 incredible activities, 8 days, 7 nights, 1 Life-changing experience. Exclusive group. Spark all your senses.
1. All Accommodation
All your nights in Costa Rica are covered. We will stay at a highly rated location.
2. Airport Pick-up and Drop-Off
We will pick you up at the airport and bring you to the party without you needing to arrange anything. The drop off at the airport is also set for last day.
3. Luxury Spa Day - Full-Body Massage in Chocolate
People come to Costa Rica to relax. We will offer you a full luxury day, including a full body massage in chocolate, along with all the other adjacent activities. Rest assured, it will be something you’ve never done before.
4. Waterfalls Swim
We will take you to another dreamy location where you can take a million pics for your Instagram and Facebook feed. Swimming in a beautiful waterfall!
5. Tubbing on a Rapid River
We will alternate the resting days with the high-adrenaline activity ones. Therefore, we will take you to experience tubbing on a rapid river. Fun and unique!
6. Hot Springs
We will also bring you to an unbelievable location, where you can soak your body in hot springs and relax with the group, chat, dream and recharge your batteries. All included in the package.
7. Mud Bath
This treatment is well-known in Costa Rica. The volcanic mud has therapeutic properties, not to mention that makes your skin look like silk.
This is another activity that will give you a different perspective of the amazing Costa Rican picturesque scenery. You’ll be 100 meters up in the air, above rivers, monkeys and waterfalls. Fee is included as well.
9. Sunset Cruise
We will take you on a catamaran for the evening, where we will party to celebrate freedom and friendship. Your ticket is, again, included.
10. A Surprise!
Well, not sure if a monkey should be the representative pic for this paragraph, but we will have a surprise for you. The Spark Experience alumni probably know what this is, but let’s just say it will cost us about $500.
11. COVID-19 Insurance
We’re proud to offer every single one of our guests COVID-19 insurance. All the advice and news about the local rules and regulations will be provided in advance. We’ve got this!
DEADLINE FOR EARLY BIRD PRICE
WHO THIS IS FOR
✓ 9-5’ers or someone who’s been working long hours and wants to detach from daily reality.
✓ Mid-life crisis individuals who don’t want to have regrets.
✓ Someone who is looking for a nice mix of culture and rustic adventure.
✓ Individuals who want to recharge their life and press the reset button.
✓ Someone who wants to surprise his/her partner with an incredible birthday or anniversary gift (maybe even a wedding proposal – we’ll get it on camera, too). Whether you’re looking for 40th birthday trip ideas (or 50th, even 60th), you’ll Spark. Costa Rica vacation packages should be special, and this takes the top.
✓ Ladies who are searching for perfect mother-daughter trips.

WHO ARE THE 10 SELECTED APPLICANTS?
Similar to the Spark Experience participants who join the Maldives, Italy, Brazil, Transylvania, Argentina & Uruguay or Colombia trips, we are carefully selecting the people that will be coming to Costa Rica. Hence the application form at the bottom of this page. We’ll tell you why.
The people you meet represent the most meaningful part of a travel experience, especially if you want to turn it into one of those trips of a lifetime. Do you know how in a group sometimes there’s someone who the rest refers to as: ‘that guy’ or ‘that chick’? That’s not going to happen here. After phone interviews, researching social media profiles, and getting references, we’ll put together our travel dream team. You’ll be with people who have life stories to tell and knowledge to share.
We want all 10 people who come with us to leave as best friends at the end of the Costa Rican adventure. The Spark Experience really offers life-changing trips. The idea is to keep in touch forever, become an exclusive community over time, and go on other memorable, bucket list trips together.
Here is the kicker: you won’t know who the other travel partners are until a week before the trip!
HAVE YOU MET YOUR HOST? HERE IS WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL WITH HIM
Your main host will be Sorin Mihailovici, the producer of the Travel by Dart series. One of the best things that happened to him was to be laid off from his TV job. It forced him to find ways to support himself and challenged his entrepreneurial spirit.
Sorin’s breakthrough came after a trip to South Africa that he initially didn’t want to take because he wanted “to wait until he makes more money”. However, his best friend pushed him to go. Although Sorin spent more money than he anticipated, the African getaway changed his life. It made him realize that life experiences are far more intrinsically valuable than things, it revitalized his mind, sparked his imagination, and inspired him to create the venture that ended up being his bread and butter today. You’re just about to be part of it.
Sorin now has unique travel experiences that generations of families don’t have in a lifetime, from diving the shipwrecks in the Bermuda Triangle to discovering the mystery of the Easter Island heads. He is also known for cruising on pirate ships in Indonesia, sleeping in the Amazon jungle, or being invited into J Balvin’s house in Medellin.
For the last few years, Sorin has made sandy beaches his home in Thailand, Brazil, and Bermuda. Let him share his love of travel, adventure, and Costa Rica with you.
If you’re looking for a creative spark, Sorin is an entrepreneur who has been a TV producer, made the State’s “most wanted” list in Romania, acted in movies and commercials, worked as a TV producer and created his own series, Travel by Dart. Sorin is also the founder of the mega-popular Scam Detector, a platform that exposes the world’s most notorious scams, so traveling safe is his priority.
Sorin has been featured on Forbes, ABC, BBC, CBS, FOX, Global, and CTV.
We really hope to meet you in Costa Rica for an event that doesn’t compare to the other regular Maldives vacation packages. So come with us, and let’s make some real magic together.
We are not a travel agency. We are a lifestyle agency.
