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.View all holidays to Costa Rica
