This small, beautiful country on the narrow isthmus between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean is renowned for the greatest bio-diversity in Latin America and has an enlightened approach towards conservation. A Costa Rica holiday makes a wonderful destination for nature and wildlife lovers as well as offering some stunning beaches and unspoilt coastline for relaxing stays after exploring its lush forests and majestic volcanic peaks.
Approximately a quarter of the land is protected by national parks or wildlife refuges. Take time to explore the rainforest, marvel at the volcanoes and soak in their thermal springs, spot exotic birds and flowers, and relax on the wide Pacific beaches. Add to this, tropical dry forests, mangroves, wetlands and coral reefs and you begin to see the huge variety of places to discover on a holiday in Costa Rica.
There are a staggering number of fascinating National Parks for such a small country some of our favourites include Monteverde, Tortuguero, Manuel Antonio and Corcovado. You can take walks on well-marked trails with expert local naturalist guides who will point out monkeys, exotic frogs and vivid tropical plants or walk along deserted and protected beaches seeking caiman.
A tour to Costa Rica is a delightful journey of discovery taking you into pristine forests and to stunning coastlines and is a fantastic introduction to Central America, offering a well-developed infrastructure and some beautiful small boutique properties. Costa Rica tours can also be easily combined with neighbouring Central American countries such as Panama or Nicaragua -
