costa rica holidays

Home to 4% of the world’s wildlife species, the many treasures of this tiny country are steadily being discovered by the rest of the world. Get ahead on a holiday to Costa Rica.

Despite being less than two thirds the size of Ireland, Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse and exciting countries on the planet. It’s a deceptively complex place with rugged mountains and volcanoes dividing the country in two. Many lodges are located in remote areas, but the superb wildlife viewing makes the journey all worthwhile. The birthplace of ecotourism and responsible travel, it’s one of the safest countries in the western hemisphere. Few places on Earth offer the chance to have breakfast on the Caribbean coast before driving to the Pacific for dinner.
