Costa Rica holidays 2019 & 2020

Costa Ricans have a saying: they’re rich in paradise. And it’s true — their homeland is ecologically unspoiled. For our specialists, holidays to Costa Rica are all about immersing yourself in its pristine ecosystems. We have thoroughly explored this small, safe Central American country, which lends itself easily to driving, and can advise on everything from zip-lining (if you’re seeking more adventurous activities), to where to bathe in thermal waters. We’ll also suggest how to increase your chances of spotting wildlife such as endangered green macaws or nesting turtles.

Your trip might take in remote, jungle-fringed coastline with beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see. Or quasi-magical cloudforest with moss-cloaked trees, hummingbirds flitting between orchids and the elusive resplendent quetzal. Then there’s the volcanic central valley with waterfalls and hot springs, and wetlands that thrum with everything from minuscule poison dart frogs to caimans, crocodiles and manatees.
