Cloud Forest bridge, Costa Rica

Zip-lining through cloudforest, observing nesting turtles, rainforests alive with the chaotic symphony of insects… On a tailor-made vacation to Costa Rica with Audley, you’ll see the highlights — and much more — your way. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style and your budget. Our Costa Rica specialists know the country inside out and can lead you to experiences you won’t find in a guidebook.

Wake up to the throaty call of a howler monkey. Seek the vibrant green plumage of the rare resplendent quetzal in San Gerardo de Dota. Drift through the flooded forests and intricate canals of Tortuguero National Park. Bathe in mineral springs near Arenal Volcano. White-water raft down the Pacuare River. Unwind away from the crowds on the dark-sand beaches decorating the Northern Pacific coast.

Tangled primary rainforest of the Osa Peninsula. Gentle surf swells at Tamarindo Beach. Scarlet macaws, tree frogs and sloths in Corcovado National Park. What excites you? Travel at your own pace, in your own style, with the confidence that we’ll show you the best options, wherever you go.
