Some of you may have already read about Northwest Prime Time's new venture, the Northwest Senior Travel Club for people ages 55+. 

The Northwest Senior Travel Club features opportunities to take International and North American tours with small groups of Northwesterners. 

Our first two trips are Costa Rica and Ireland!

Northwest Prime Time is partnering up with Collette Travel. Sound familiar? Collette is regularly featured on Wheel of Fortune and the Hallmark Channel. Collette is a family-owned company that has been in business for more than 100 years. 

Collette's carefully designed guided travel experiences work to provide more value for your money and offer an emphasis on what makes travel special, including must-see destinations, cultural travel encounters, high quality accommodations, expert tour managers, the flexibility to personalize your tour, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing all the details of your trip have been designed by an authority in the industry.

The Northwest Senior Travel Club has already scheduled trips to Costa Rica and Ireland, but what trips do you think we should add?

In addition to the scheduled trips (more information below), we are asking interested travelers if they would like to attend an in-person meeting of the Travel Club. 

At the Northwest Senior Travel Club meeting, not only can you learn more about the scheduled trips, but this gathering will give you the chance to voice your opinion about other trips you'd like to take ... and it offers the opportunity to meet with other Travel Club members!

Upcoming tours include:

Costa Rica (April 2025). From thrilling water journeys to ethereal jungle expeditions, discover what pura vida means to you when you explore the essence of Costa Rica. Encounter an emerald wonderland, where trees climb high and animals roam free. Immerse yourself in nature when you spend 2 nights at a remote resort in San Carlos and 3 nights in the region of Arenal National Park. Sample fresh cacao during a visit to a local plantation. Give back to preservation efforts at a sea turtle research station in Tortuguero National Park. Embark on a crocodile safari in the jungle and a bird-watching cruise in the rainforest. Stand suspended over the rainforest floor as you journey across a network of hanging bridges. Hike the lava fields of Arenal Volcano or soar over jungle canopies on a zip line. It’s time to experience a world of nature.
