Explore Costa Rica

Although Costa Rica is around the size of Denmark it contains five percent of the world’s biodiversity. This tiny country is a refuge for nature and the Costa Ricans have placed great emphasis on preserving their natural environment. This means that if you take a tour in Costa Rica you can be guaranteed to find yourself surrounded by beautiful flora, fauna and wildlife. Even on a short trip to San Jose, the capital city of this biodiverse country, you will find yourself nestled within a highland valley and surrounded by abundant nature.

One of the highlights of visiting one of the national parks of Costa Rica is the possibility to get up close and personal with one of the most tremendous forces of nature: volcanoes. Just an hour from San Jose, in the central highlands, you will have the opportunity to visit La Paz Waterfall Gardens, on the slopes of the volcano Poas. Here, you can visit the largest butterfly observatory in the world, have the opportunity to feed hummingbirds by hand and view some of the most interesting serpents and frogs which inhabit the surrounding forest. It truly is one of the most magical places on earth.

If you wonder what to see in Costa Rica, The Poas Volcano and Cerro Chato are definitely to be considered must-sees as they form powerful symbols of the volcanic forces that formed the country. Here you will be surrounded by clouds of steam while you visit the centre of the second largest crater in the world at the summit of The Poas Volcano. You will find a brilliantly jewel green, bubbling sulfuric lake at the bottom of the crater which is fuelled by the bubbling geothermic forces underneath the earth’s surface.

If you want to combine wildlife with some sea- and surf fun on your holiday in Costa Rica, then enjoy a trip to the Costa Rican Caribbean coast where you can divide your time between luxuriating on the beautiful white beaches of the Caribbean and exploring the rainforest of Costa Rica, offering you the chance to spot wild animals such as sea cows, Jaguars or Tapiers in their natural environment. One of the highlights of a tour to Tortuguero National Park are the green sea turtles which have their nesting sites here.  

While you travel in Costa Rica don’t miss Corcovado National Park which was called  by National Geographic "the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity". Another beautiful combination of tropical wilderness and beaches!

Once you have had your fill of National Parks and Wildlife watching, add some adventure to your trip and go white water rafting on the most fantastic and well known of Costa Rica’s rivers. Rafting at The Parcuare River provides a perfect mix of white knuckle rapids and more relaxing sections of river. There is no better way to view the rainforest than from a boat; the forests that surround The Pacuare River host Jaguars, monkeys and Ocelots.

Whether you want to relax on white sandy beaches, trek though magnificent rainforests, meet friendly locals or spot some of the world’s most fantastic wildlife, our Costa Rica packages are all great options and will definitely not disappoint you while traveling in Latin America.
