The Pacific coast, the central mountain range and the Caribbean coast, generate a wide range of habitats, ideal for birdwatching. National Parks protect these habitats and stylish, character lodges offer excellent facilities for you to explore.

Costa Rica has long been renowned as a compact, modern and politically stable country, but that's not what is attracting record numbers of visitors to its shores. With both a Pacific and a Caribbean coastline and a verdant and volcanic interior, planning a trip here involves the difficult task of selecting, from a very long list, which unforgettable experiences you simply cannot miss. Picture yourself seeing baby Green Sea turtles take their first steps in Tortuguero, hiking past sloths in Corcovado or exploring the ancient lava flows from the Arenal Volcano. Imagine getting a birds-eye view as you zip line through a cloud forest canopy or checking in at one of the country's famed luxury eco-lodges, surrounded by tropical jungle.

We invite you to browse our selection of Costa Rica holidays below. These itineraries have been carefully planned by our destination specialists to provide a deeper perspective of the amazing variety of National Parks, lodges and hotels, ecosystems and wildlife.
