Explore and Relax in Costa Rica: Volcanoes to the beach

12 days from £3,129pp
 

Private Journey

 

This short budget holiday uses modern, shared minibuses for transport between hotels. Combine outdoor adventures with beach wind-down time on the Pacific coast. Costa Rica is bursting with an extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna and its people are among the friendliest in Latin America. The comprehensive network of national parks with their extensive trails is always very accessible. 

Begin your adventure visiting the Caribbean jungle waterways and mangrove forests of the wildlife-rich Tortuguero reserve. Move on to discover the densely packed canopy in the Monteverde cloud forest, with its rich bird and animal life in view; then walk the hanging bridges in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano. After this, travel to the Pacific coast and stay at a beach resort close to a coastal national park for a couple of days’ relaxation.
