Holidays in Costa Rica
Bottle-green rainforests and cloud forests shrouded in mist. Brooding volcanoes watching over hot springs and pineapple plantations. Golden sandy beaches playing host to tiny baby turtles. Welcome to Costa Rica, where the weather’s warm, the scenery’s glorious and the warm, friendly locals live by the saying ‘pura vida’ (pure life).
It’s a nation that’s big on sustainability. Great swathes of the country have protected status, allowing wildlife to thrive. Our Costa Rica holidays are designed to show you a slice of this biodiverse wonderland – you’ll glide through mangroves in search of toucans and caiman, hike through forests surrounded by monkeys and macaws, and encounter jewel-like hummingbirds en route to breakfast at laid-back lodges.
It’s not all about animals, though. We can show you San Jose’s neoclassical mansions, teach you the secrets of Tico cuisine and give you a taster of Costa Rican coffee culture.
What can you expect on a Titan holiday in Costa Rica? Expertise, for starters. We plan out our itineraries carefully to ensure you get the most out of your time away, drawing on 40-plus years of escorted touring experience. We also know how valuable local expertise is, so we recruit local guides and tour managers who are also trained naturalists – experts in Costa Rica’s flora and fauna. We also have very specific maximum group sizes for our Costa Rica tours to make for a sociable yet intimate experience that’s perfectly suited to the itinerary.
On our Wild Costa Rica escorted tours, we allow a maximum of 18 guests; for Natural Wonders of Costa Rica, it’s 21. We like to take care of the little things, too – our Costa Rica holidays might be adventurous, but we also want you to be comfortable. In Tortuguero National Park, for example, normally visitors are limited to a small overnight bag for their stay, but we’ve organised a special arrangement so that you can have your suitcase with you at the lodge. And in San Jose, we’ve negotiated early check-in, so you can refresh and relax if your flight lands early.
As with all of our holidays, you'll also enjoy our signature VIP door-to-door travel service, taking you to and from the airport in hassle-free comfort, while our tour managers will be by your side every step of the way ensuring everything runs smoothly. Finally, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that your holiday is safe - we’re ABTA bonded and ATOL protected, and our Protection Promise means you can book with complete confidence.
From London to San Jose is approx 11 hours and 20 mins.
