Nice to meet ya, Costa Rica. Introducing the country encapsulating ‘pura vida’ to the extreme, a laid-back paradise where even the sloths are taking things easier than usual. After soaking up the culture in San Jose we hit the national parks in search of unspoilt rainforest and deserted white-sand beaches. And did we mention the sloths? This is a trip for nature lovers among you: a ‘best of’ trip in Costa Rica, which just happens to quite possibly have the ‘best of’ biodiversity in the whole wide world. You won’t regret it.

Highlights

Take in the atmosphere and culture of San Jose, Costa Rica’s bustling capital nestled between the mountains and volcanoes.

Visit Manuel Antonio and Corcovado national parks and swim off white-sand beaches while searching for tropical birds, iguanas and sloths.
