Family Costa Rica: Jungle walks and turtle spotting

14 days from £2,503pp
 

Private Journey

 

The  compact country is bursting with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna, and this family journey explores its well-organised national parks in an active way, with the children wowed by canoe trips, suspended bridges and a beachside camp where monkeys roam free.

Begin with a guided waterborne exploration of the Caribbean jungle channels and mangrove forests to see wildlife in the Tortuguero reserve. Later, scramble over hanging bridges suspended over waterfalls and forest and recover with a bathe in naturally heated thermal springs in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano. Move on to another wildlife experience in a Pacific-coast fixed safari camp, and end the holiday on the sunny beaches of popular resort at Manuel Antonio. 

Costa Rica is one of the most peaceful and stable countries in the world:  and the people are among the friendliest in Latin America. The comprehensive network of national parks with their extensive trails is always very accessible.  In line with its love and respect for the great outdoors, Costa Rica also has been at the vanguard of adventure tourism, with lots of activities on offer from zip-lining to white-water rafting.
