Overview & Highlights

Secluded wild beaches, untouched rainforests teeming with wildlife and tranquil lodges await on this covid-conscious holiday to Costa Rica’s remote natural gems.

  • Doka Coffee Estate, Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens Full Day excursion.
  • Excursions by boat in Tortuguero National Park
  • Exploring jungle trails and beaches on the Osa Peninsula

Discover the breathtaking beauty of Costa Rica’s wildest landscapes. On this covid-conscious holiday, you’ll stay in remote, scenic areas which boast an astounding variety of rare wildlife and tropical foliage.

Beginning in the lush countryside outside the capital San Jose, set off by road for a day of exploring a traditional coffee farm, a wildlife sanctuary and an imposing active volcano cloaked in clouds and mist. It’s then a short flight to the Tortuguero region on the sun-soaked Caribbean coast, where you may have the chance to witness sea turtles as they dig nests in the golden sands.

Finally you’ll unwind in pristine jungles fringed by wild beaches on the Osa Peninsula, home to many species of chattering monkeys and a kaleidoscopic array of birds.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

For me, it was the Atacama desert. It is the driest desert in the world, and we had thunder storms!! But it left snow on the volcanos and fluffy clouds in the brilliant blue sky. Perfect for landscape photography.  The great guides, and the friendly fellow travelers.
The Penguin tour was excellent. It covered all the main places I wanted to see, from the Atacama to Patagonia. There are not many companies that cover so much, for group travellers.

I love this tour as it takes you to the diverse ecosystems of Costa Rica whilst staying away from the main tourist hotspots. You'll experience the very best of this breathtaking country away from the crowds, always keeping within your comfort zone.
