Your Destination

As the eco-and adventure-tourism capital of Central America, Costa Rica is a magnet for nature enthusiasts, thrill seekers and those who want to step off the beaten track. La pura vida (the pure life) is the unofficial motto of the country, and it's easy to see why - emerald rainforests, pastel-coloured hummingbirds, smouldering volcanic peaks and tumbling rivers - this verdant chunk is one of the most bio-diverse spots on the planet!

The country's national parks are its greatest glory, with one-third of the country set aside as protected natural areas. As well as being a world leader in eco-tourism, Costa Rica superbly caters for visitors looking for an adrenalin kick, with options including whitewater rafting, zip line tours through the rainforest canopy, surfing and quad biking. This complete tour will give you the full experience, from the quaint beauty of its capital city, the lush depths of its green forests, the protected eco-reserves and the wild vistas of its Pacific coast. It is quickly becoming more popular, so grab this chance to visit now, while landscapes are still exceptionally unspoiled!
