Unforgettable holidays to Costa Rica

Costa Rica offers some of the best terrain for eco-holidays, from stunning and sustainable beach resorts along the Pacific coastline to cloud forests high in the mountains teeming with exotic animals. Start your adventure in San José, then discover what lies beyond the capital.

Jungles house thousands of species of plant and animal, including howler monkeys, lively hummingbirds and stunning orchids. Challenge yourself to see the 110 volcanos across the country, including the impressive Arenal, renowned for its perfect symmetry. Or head to Liberia’s flat beaches, ideal for galloping on the back of horse – a pastime revered in the sabanero (cowboy) culture. Visit sloth sanctuaries, to learn about the world’s slowest animal in their natural habitats. Ultimately, you are going to be mesmerised by the diversity on offer, from beach to mountain and river to ocean.
