Tanager: Flora and fauna of Costa Rica

12 days from £2,778pp

Group Journey


Costa Rica is a compact, accessible country where visitors are mesmerised by the forest-mantled volcanic landscapes and the sheer volume of exuberant bio-diversity. There’s a peaceful, friendly ambiance throughout which lends itself to a truly relaxed group holiday of discovery.

To understand the complexities of the bewitching natural environment and the efforts to sustain it, on this group adventure you benefit from the services of well informed local guides, who are bursting with pride in Costa Rica’s achievements. You’ll be taken to the famous national park at Tortuguero where, canoeing through the mangroves, you’ll be overwhelmed by the number of species - including of course turtles – and the magical fairyland of the Monteverde cloud forest, a haven for birdlife.

To this we have added up and coming new destinations: tropical Sarapiqui and the turquoise pools and sparkling waterfalls of Rio Celeste. Finally spend time at Carara, a coastal reserve famed for its scarlet macaws and the huge crocodiles which lurk in the mangroves.

Owing to the wilderness locations, most of your meals are included, so this holiday is really good value as well.

Costa Rica is famed for its wildlife, showcased in its network of national parks. This nature-focussed holiday shows off the variety within a tiny country, from the turtles of Tortuguero on the Caribbean coast to the monkeys  and sloths of the highland interior and the hummingbirds and orchids of the cloud forest at Monteverde.
