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.

What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
The ubiquitous music and dance of Cuba and the infectious joie de vivre of its truly multicultural people who seem to live life to the full with the little they have. Cuba is a fascinating country and this comprehensive trip showed us not only its spectacular variety of scenery and its rich history but gave an insight into the resourcefulness of its people and how they cope in their struggle for survival and freedom. I'm sure we only scratched at the surface but I'm curious to learn more (and I must learn to speak more Spanish).DC, London
