Signature Costa Rica: The natural highlights

14 days from £3,198pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 

Tiny Costa Rica is bursting with an extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna, and this journey provides an in-depth exploration of its natural highlights including rainforest coast, Arenal volcano and the turtle-beaches at Tortuguero.

Begin at a rainforest lodge close to Corcovado National Park on the Pacific coast. Then, having surveyed panoramas over the densely packed canopy in the Monteverde cloud forest, with its rich birdlife and animal life in view, bathe in naturally heated thermal springs in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano. After this, a trip by land and over water takes you east where you emerge to explore the Caribbean jungle waterways and mangrove forests of the wildlife-rich Tortuguero reserve. Your trip ends with a couple of days’ relaxation on a white sand Caribbean beach.

It is one of the most peaceful and stable countries in the world and its 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 respect for the great outdoors, Costa Rica has been at the vanguard of adventure tourism, with activities on offer from zip-lining to white-water rafting.
