Costa Rica is a nature lover's paradise - the most ecologically diverse country on the planet - it is home to the largest number of endemic wildlife species in the world. From two and three fingered sloths to the toucans and colourful parrots and from the elusive jaguars to the myriad of frog species, the flora and fauna of this country will not disappoint you.

The sheer number of different ecosystems in this relatively small country will astound you, the tropical Tortuguero region, the swinging canopy bridges of Sarapiqui, the Volcanic Hot Springs at Arenal, the small, hidden beaches at Manuel Antonio (where you are likely to share the sand with monkeys and blue iguanas), the riverine forests at Rincon de la Vieja and the sandy beaches of the Guanacaste region on the Gulf of Papagayo - the hardest decision is to decide where to start your holiday.

Whether you choose to take one of our set tours or you tailor make your itinerary with one of our destination specialists, we would definitely recommend you spend at least a week touring followed by a week's relaxation on the beach.
