Costa Rica offers an abundance of exciting activities to adrenaline-seekers, but its laidback surroundings invite you to take things at your own pace - so whether you want to hop on a board or lounge on the white-sand beach, Costa Rica offers something for everyone.


Why we love it

“Costa Rica is the ideal place to begin your foray into Latin America - one of the greenest nations on the planet, this country ensures the environment is at the heart of everything it does and is a world leader in sustainability. Arriving in the well-connected capital, San Jose you'll have a chance to ease yourself into "Pura Vida" before you venture into Monteverde national park and explore the Arenal volcano area. Here, adventure takes centre stage; from hiking waterfalls to treetop canopy walks and zip lining through rainforests. Next, you'll head east to the Pacific coast where the verdant jungle meets the crystal clear waters and wide sandy beaches - perfect for catching waves or sunrise yoga sessions.”

Example itinerary

Our team have curated an amazing route for you to get inspired. Your trip will be fully bespoke - we can add, remove and tweak this to your heart's content.

San José & Central Valley Arenal Monteverde Cloud Forest Santa Teresa Manuel Antonio
 

On arrival at San José airport, you'll be met by our representatives and driven to your hotel. We recommend the British Airways flight which is currently the only direct option. You can also fly via one of the European hubs such as Madrid or Amsterdam, otherwise via the US. Most flights will arrive early evening, so a night in San José is required.

San José & Central Valley

The capital of Costa Rica is home to friendly locals, vibrant culture and is jam packed full of historical attractions. It might be tempting to use the city as a gateway to the rest of the country but spend some time to get to know this modern cosmopolitan city's parks, museums and restaurants before you head off to the Central Valley, to experience its agreeable climate, go whitewater rafting, undertake a plethora of cultural excursions and visit coffee plantations, volcanic craters and lagoons.
