Costa Rica

The tiny country of Costa Rica packs an impressive punch of wildlife, culture and activities.

With three quarters of the country covered in protected rainforests, and the rest split between tropical beaches and volcanic landscapes, it is easy to see why Costa Rica is a popular destination. Half a million species of animal, bird and plant species all thrive in this opulent and yet compact country. Take a walk with a local guide and you will soon be enthralled by the howls of spider monkeys, enchanted by the colourful hummingbirds and finding rare orchids among the foliage. Thrill seekers can enjoy white water rafting, canopy zip lines, caving, scuba diving, horse riding, deep sea fishing, surfing and waterfall trekking to name a few! Its small size enables visitors to travel between destinations quickly and easily – excellent for travellers who are time restricted.

Away from the bustling capital San Jose, Costa Rica has a long list of ‘must-do’ highlights. The impressive cone of Arenal volcano, surrounded by steaming hot springs and fertile valleys, is a perfect for a luxury spa break. For nature lovers the Monteverde cloud forest and Tortugero National Park are bursting with animals and birds of all sizes, shapes and colours. The coastlines are a delicious blend of sweet surf breaks, alluring blue waters and perfect sunshine. Costa Rica’s sheer diversity and astounding list of must-do activities absorb adults and children alike, making it an ideal destination for a luxury family holiday.
