The people of Costa Rica have a saying: they’re rich in paradise. It’s not hard to understand what they mean: much of Costa Rica is ecologically unspoiled, its wildlife is abundant, and its ecosystems are diverse. Think remote, jungle-fringed coastline with beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see. Quasi-magical cloudforest with moss-cloaked trees, hummingbirds flitting between orchids and the elusive quetzal bird. A volcanic central valley with waterfalls and hot springs. Wetlands that thrum with everything from minuscule poison dart frogs to caimans, crocodiles and manatees.
Our specialists have explored much of this small, safe Central American country, which lends itself easily to self-driving. We can advise on the best spots for zip-lining and rafting if you’re seeking more adventurous activities, where to bathe in thermal waters in Arenal National Park, and how to see wildlife such as endangered green macaws and nesting sea turtles.
