Looking to immerse yourself in nature? Book flights to Costa Rica and raft on the Sarapiqui River or go horseback riding on the palm beaches at Samara. For a unique experience, spend the night with the Bribri Indians in the tropical rainforest. Looking for an urban experience? Travel to the capital San José and visit fascinating museums such as the Gold Museum. Later on dance the night away to the typical Costa Rican cumbia.
Near San José you will find Arenal, the world’s most active volcano. At night, the bright orange eruptions are spectacular. Take a visit to the Venado Caves and see the bats. Then continue to the famous misty cloud forests of Monteverde National Park. This is where sloths relax and visitors can swing through the tree tops. The park also features a number of wonderful hot springs. Other national parks such as Corcovado, Manuel Antonio and Rincón de la Vieja also boast a large number of beautiful plants and animals. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Costa Rica now!
Costa Ricans are proud of their pura vida, the ‘pure life’; this expression is used to describe everything that involves enjoying life. You will understand the meaning when you kick back in a hammock on the pink flamingo beach of Playa Flamingo. Active travellers will love the surfing in Tamarindo and Dominical. Rent a car, toss a surfboard in the trunk and go find a deserted bay. Or perhaps take a boat to Tortuguero National Park, which is only accessible by water or by air. The park is home to the red-eyed maki frog, a green tree frog with bright red eyes and blue-yellow legs. Did you know that Costa Rica is home to 133 species of frogs and toads? But colourful toucans, loud howler monkeys and sly caimans also inhabit this wonderful nature reserve. On the beaches watch the newly hatched baby turtles struggle to reach the ocean. A heartwarming experience!
