Luxury Nicaragua and Costa Rica

13 days from £4347pp

Private Journey

The tropical republics of Costa Rica and Nicaragua share gorgeous landscapes of volcanoes, lakes, palm-fringed beaches, citrus plantations, fertile slopes smothered in coffee bushes, and a huge diversity of flora and fauna. Costa Rica has long had a network of accessible national parks with extensive hiking trails, as well as adventure activities from zip-lining to white-water rafting. Nicaragua is new to this kind of development but is gaining a reputation for responsible tourism with top-end wellbeing-focused eco-lodges opening all over the country.

This holiday will suit romantic couples and honeymooners looking for a slow-paced itinerary combining exquisite natural locations, with plenty of time for relaxation. Spend a few days at a luxury rainforest lodge on the Pacific’s Osa Peninsula. Move on into Nicaragua to a boutique lodge on one of over 300 islets. Later, move on to a renowned upmarket lodge and working farm enveloped in jungle on a cliff overlooking a long soft-sand beach. In each place there are opportunities to take excursions into the countryside, engage in outdoor activities or laze by the pool.
