Costa Rica

  • Caribbean beach

Overview & Highlights

Secluded wild beaches, untouched rainforests teeming with wildlife and tranquil lodges await on this covid-conscious holiday to Costa Rica’s remote natural gems.

Discover the breathtaking beauty of Costa Rica’s wildest landscapes. On this covid-conscious holiday, you’ll stay in remote, scenic areas which boast an astounding variety of rare wildlife and tropical foliage.

Beginning in the lush countryside outside the capital San Jose, set off by road for a day of exploring a traditional coffee farm, a wildlife sanctuary and an imposing active volcano cloaked in clouds and mist. It’s then a short flight to the Tortuguero region on the sun-soaked Caribbean coast, where you may have the chance to witness sea turtles as they dig nests in the golden sands.

Finally you’ll unwind in pristine jungles fringed by wild beaches on the Osa Peninsula, home to many species of chattering monkeys and a kaleidoscopic array of birds.
