Costa Rica Holidays

Costa Rica is a tiny, peaceful country located at the heart of Central America and squeezed between the calm seas of the Caribbean and the rolling waves of the mighty Pacific Ocean and it is this strategic geographic location that acts as a biological bridge between North and South America.

Despite its tiny size, this lush and colourful tropical paradise is a veritable Garden of Eden boasting as much as 5% of the planet’s biodiversity and with over 27% of the country’s land mass dedicated to conservation, this enlightened approach to its natural treasures has ensured that visitors will see a staggering variety of flora and fauna. Beautiful jungles are home to countless exotic birds such as the scarlet macaw, resplendent quetzal and the shimmering forms of many hummingbird species as well as a dizzying array of extraordinary insects, graceful butterflies and over 8000 varieties of orchid.

Reptiles and mammals are also in abundance including such favourites as poison-dart frogs, playful monkeys, three-toed sloths and even the elusive jungle cats and the jaguar. Meanwhile the oceans offer a wealth of beautiful fish for snorkellers to enjoy and the endangered sea turtles still come ashore on the country’s sandy white beaches as they have done for millennia to nest.

However it is not just for animal lovers. The scenery is equally dramatic with thundering volcanoes spewing their molten magma; numerous rivers offering excellent white water rafting; lush forests through which you can whiz through on a zip-line; hot thermal pools where you can soak up the mineral rich waters; stunning beaches on both oceans for some rest & relaxation as well as a horse riding, canoeing or surfing…Costa Rica is a paradise for thrill seekers and the more chilled alike.
