About This Trip

Picture the dream holiday destination. Pristine paradise beaches, rich stretches of lush, protected wild space, vibrant cities bristling with culture, a farm-to-table dining scene like no other. Wrap all of this in a country whose environmental credentials are off-the-scale and whose people are so friendly and laid back, you instantly feel at home. Did we mention that every square inch is entirely beautiful? Welcome to Costa Rica, your dream destination. 

 

Get under the skin of this incredible country and explore like a local on this immersive tour of its rich culture and diverse ecosystems. Become a local as you delve deep into the capital San José, exploring its enticing gastronomic scene, eating from the streets, markets and restaurants and indulging in the mixology of its vibrant bar scene. 

 

Be swept through the jaw-dropping landscapes of Costa Rica, through scenery that seems almost too perfect to be real. Explore the volcanic landscapes of Arenal, relaxing in the naturally sculpted hot spring pools, with views over lush rainforest. The density of wildlife in Costa Rica is almost overpowering with brightly coloured birds and butterflies accompanying you every step of the way, but you will also get the chance to commune with sloths. You will also put on your adventurer’s hat as you walk over the hanging bridges of Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Preserve, learning about Costa Rica’s most precious ecosystem. 

 

Add in luxurious, hand-picked accommodation, time in some of the most incredible beauty spots of this delightful country and you have an unforgettable adventure waiting to be embarked upon.

highlights

We truly believe that Costa Rica might be the perfect destination and we wanted to put our money where our mouth was and create a tour that showcased just why. There genuinely is not a moment spent in Costa Rica where you are not in awe of it, whether that be of its extreme natural beauty, or the incredible nature of its people, instantly putting you in a state of happiness. 

 

We wanted to get a more local edge to our exploration and we have chosen, not only some immersive experiences in San José that only the locals know, but some of the lesser-known beauty spots to really zone in on the biodiversity of the country. We added in the Monteverde Cloud Forest simply because it is entirely unique and absolutely crammed with wildlife, but contrasted this with a small scale, family-run Sloth reservation, so you get to see every side of this ecological masterpiece of a country.


location

The tour kicks off in San José, the capital of Costa Rica. We will collect you from the airport and take you to your first accommodation. After exploring San José for a couple of days you will then head down to Arenal then on to Monteverde as we explore the wild side of Costa Rica. Then, to finish up you head to idyllic Tamarindo for a couple of relaxing nights in this little slice of paradise before we transfer you back to the airport in San José. 


facilities

We have sought out the finest boutique and luxury spa hotels in Costa Rica to add to the flair of this trip. Each hotel has been chosen for its attention to detail, its chic interior and high level of service, situated right in the heart of the town or city for maximum exposure to the culture of Costa Rica.
