Costa Rica Holidays

The fact that we have four specialists designing holidays to Costa Rica might be some clue as to its popularity and our expertise. James, Alison, John and Sue have all been there on many occasions both for pleasure and for work (OK so the work was also pleasure). They have taken children of all ages and without exception they rate it as the best holiday ever.

Why we like holidays to Cost Rica

We love Costa Rica for its principles and commitment to the environment - the army was formally abolished in 1949 and the money saved was put into improving the infrastructure and protecting the environment. In a practical sense it is small and easy to travel around with a huge amount of variety and activities. Adventure with all the trappings of comfort and fine dining.

What to expect on your Costa Rican holiday

Green, lush vegetation, birds of all sizes and colours, fabulous butterflies, active volcanoes and exciting wildlife. National parks cover some 25% of the country and the government and people take their responsibility of protecting the environment very seriously. Due to its compact nature, travelling around is easy and the money which was saved by abandoning the military has been used to develop the infrastructure of roads which are excellent. While the focus might be on activities and wildlife there is no need to sacrifice on comfort and you will find hotels of every standard and size to suit any pocket. Finally don’t forget the jungle-fringed beaches which stretch for miles and offer superb opportunities for surfing and kiting.

Some ideas for a Cost Rica holiday

  • Fly through the rainforest on a zip wire or take a walk high in the tree canopy.
  • Try a self-drive holiday with a variable itinerary to be decided as you drive along.
  • Walk up to the ridge of the active Poas volcano for a peek into the steaming abyss of its caldera, the largest in the world.
  • Spend time in some of the wildlife parks where the numbers of birds and density of wildlife will amaze you.
  • Learn how to surf off palm-fringed golden Pacific beaches
  • End with a few days on a beach.

Beyond the ordinary
