Discover otherworldly wildlife and untouched tropical landscapes on a holiday to Costa Rica.

Rugged, covered with rainforest and endlessly diverse – no amount of superlatives does Costa Rica justice. It has Pacific and Caribbean coastlines dotted with exclusive and elegant beachfront hideaways, jaw-dropping volcanoes which go through a whole spectrum of shades by the time the sun sets, and some of the most colourful wildlife you’ll ever see. If you haven’t heard the phrase Pura vida (literally ‘pure life’) before, you’ll never forget it by the time you’ve been to Costa Rica. The local people, or Ticos, use it for just about everything, so much so that it’s seen as an attitude and way of life – it can be anything from whizzing down a zip-wire through unspoilt cloud forest, catching waves on a surfboard or crossing paths underwater with turtles.
