An adventure through colourful, eco-friendly Costa Rica, with mesmerising city, nature and beach stays, excursions and all travel included

One of the most bio-diverse and voluptuously green nations on the planet, Costa Rica seduces visitors with exotic wildlife and phenomenal scenery. Covered in a dense canopy of rainforest and fringed by soft sands, this Central American Eden is heaven for intrepid travellers.

Kicking off with one night in San José, you’ll move onto Tortuguero, looking out for the likes of manatees, jaguars, otters, sloth monkeys, crocodiles and basilisk lizards. During your two-night stay, you’ll visit the charming town of Tortuguero itself, and take a naturalistic walk through the tropical rainforest for a chance to observe the wildlife.

You’ll then travel to La Fortuna, at the foot of the brooding Arenal Volcano - one of the most important and spectacular in Costa Rica. With three nights here, there's enough time to explore at your own pace, and you'll have the opportunity to go on a hike around the famous volcano before taking a load off at some hot springs.

Next, you’ll head into mountainous Monteverde, known for its tropical biodiversity and its cloud forests. During your time here, you’ll visit the area's longest suspension bridge in Selvatura Park and get to walk up high among the treetops at this nature reserve and adventure park.

Finally, it’s time to take it easy on the far west coast, at the Pacific beach paradise of Tamarindo, where stretches of soft white sand await. With three nights at Hotel Pasatiempo, you’ll have the chance to really unwind before heading back to San José for one last night, after which you’ll catch your overnight flight home.
