Costa Rica Wildlife Discovery

15 days from £3,639pp
 

Private Journey

 
Costa Rica is one of the most rewarding countries in the world for wildlife observation, with a long and impressive history of conservation and eco-tourism allowing species to flourish. The comprehensive network of national parks with their extensive trails is always very accessible. The tiny country is bursting with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna, and this private wildlife observation journey gives you all the opportunity to explore its national parks in various eco-systems.

Exploration of the Caribbean jungle channels and mangrove forests of the wildlife-filled Tortuguero reserve. Bathe in naturally heated thermal springs in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano, and cruise through wetlands sheltering thousands of migrating birds. Head on to explore the little-visited but wildlife-prolific Bosque de Paz cloud forest reserve. Finally, move on to the Pacific coast and another wildlife experience at a jungle lodge on the remote Osa Peninsula.
