Driven with a Passion for Costa Rica

Our company was started by Donielle Fish, an experienced traveler who has a long background in the hospitality industry. Her love for travel and the Spanish language originally brought her to Costa Rica in 2001 on a study abroad program for her undergraduate in Spanish at the University of Costa Rica.

Originally from Kansas City, Donielle left Toto and the red slippers left behind to embrace the experience of living in beautiful Costa Rica. She has lived in the Central Valley of San Jose, the beach town of Jaco, and has now happily resided in Manuel Antonio for the past 10 years.  She has traveled the country from North to South and East to West, from the most well-known routes, to the off the beaten path. Her adventures have changed her life, and she is passionate about sharing her knowledge and love for the Costa Rican culture and it’s beauty with other travelers. 

Whether you want to schedule an action-packed trip or just get away from it all, the team at Costa Rica First Class Villas wants to hear from you!

“It was a seamless vacation from start to finish, thanks to your attention to detail and local knowledge. You were able to anticipate all of our needs, and we are extremely grateful. My family and I travel abroad on a regular basis, and rarely do we receive service that makes us feel right at home, even in a foreign country.” – Abby D.
