Private Journey


Combine outdoor adventures with beach wind-down time on the Pacific coast. Costa Rica is bursting with an extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna and its people are among the friendliest in Latin America. The comprehensive network of national parks with their extensive trails is always very accessible. This short holiday uses modern, shared minibuses for transport between hotels.

Begin your adventure with a couple of days exploring the beautiful landscapes in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano Move on to discover the densely packed canopy in the Monteverde cloud forest, with its rich bird and animal life on display. After this, travel to the Pacific coast and stay at a beach resort on the Nicoya Peninsula for a few days’ relaxation.

What our experts say

With this trip we wanted to show that you don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy Costa Rica. We’ve chosen to include some relaxing activities such as soaking in Arenal’s hot springs and we’ve selected luxury properties throughout – enjoying a candlelit dinner on a beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a particularly romantic way of ending this Costa Rican escape.
