Highlights

  • Swap the concrete jungle for real jungle on this trip into the rainforests, waterways, hot springs and palm-lined beaches of Costa Rica.

  • Refresh after jungle hikes spotting endemic wildlife in the rejuvenating hot springs of volcanic La Fortuna.
  • Begin and end your trip in Costa Rica’s lively capital, San Jose, where you’ll see a more urban side of the country.

Itinerary

Discover incredible, lush Costa Rica, and understand why this part of the world is called the ‘rich coast’.
