Costa Rica Holidays

Costa Rica is a jewel of a destination and we can’t wait to send our guests here. Tucked between Nicaragua and Panama, with the Pacific on one coast, and the Caribbean on the other, this Central American country ticks pretty much every single box. Costa Rica is one of the planet’s most biodiverse countries, with a reported 5% of all species (many being endemic) in just this one tiny place. And it doesn’t stop there. It has truly spectacular and varied landscape. From tropical rainforest to rare cloud forest, from idyllic beaches to waterfalls and mighty volcanoes and hot springs. Add to this some world leading adventure and luxury retreats, and you have several holidays all in one.

Read on to find out more about this stunning Central American country.

Luxury and off the beaten track adventure go hand in hand in Costa Rica. Across the country, we have handpicked a portfolio of wonderful retreats, where you’ll experience the very best in local hospitality and enjoy what Costa Ricans call  “la pura vida”. Some are on the side of a volcano; others are deep in the rainforest, reachable only by 4×4; a handful are steps from the beach, and many of them come with their own guides. For jungle trekking, volcano climbing and zip wire action, Nayara Tented Camp looks out over Arenal, with each tent featuring its own hot spring fed plunge pool. For some Caribbean vibes and five star treatment, Hotel Aguas Claras, with its eclectic charm, is a rare boutique retreat. For hanging bridges through the cloud forest, spend a very comfortable day or two at Senda Monteverde, then head to the rapids for white water rafting to the remote Pacuare Lodge, where your terrace is surrounded by rainforest.


Every morning, just before dawn, the howler monkeys wake up the rainforest to herald the new day. There’s no need to set an alarm – they’ll wake you up. At breakfast, watch flocks of birds, the colours of the rainbow, metres from your table, and maybe a coati or two; spend the morning kayaking through mangroves with macaws overhead and iguanas basking in the sun on the shore. Keep your eyes peeled for sloths – they’re hard to spot. After dark, go deep into the forest in search of tree frogs and armadillos. And if you’re lucky, you might see a tapir or even a jaguar.


This little country really does have something for everyone. Nature lovers, adrenalin junkies, honeymooners and families thirsty for adventure – there’s an itinerary for each and every one of you. And because of the size of Costa Rica, it doesn’t take long to get from one place to the next, either by plane or 4×4.
