Costa Rica MapWith British Airways’ new direct flight from London Gatwick to San Jose, it has never been easier to travel to Costa Rica.  Being one of the smallest countries in the world, it has by no means less to offer.  Even though it’s one of the world’s smallest countries, it packs a punch with what it has to offer; beaches, adventure and nature with the highest biodiversity density in the world.  Perfect for families, friends or couples.  Costa Rica works for travellers from hard-core adventurers to sun lounger lovers.  

Bordered by the Caribbean and the Pacific Oceans, and split in two by a chain of volcanic mountains, Costa Rica’s varied terrain encompasses dense jungle, lush rainforest, misty cloud forests, mountains, glorious beaches, mangrove estuaries, hot sulphur springs with bubbling mud pools, dry forests, freshwater swamps, clear azure waters and coral reefs.  These habitats are home to an incredible array of flora and fauna, with fabulous birding – sharp-eyed guides will help you spot them camouflaged in the forest.  

Inland, a whole host of activities are available including trekking, birding, water-rafting, rappelling, canopy walking, horse-riding, swimming in warm natural springs or waterfalls, touring plantations, climbing volcanoes and kayaking are just some of the activities on offer.

While the Pacific and Caribbean coasts offer humpback whale watching (an almost all year round activity), snorkelling and diving the pristine coral reefs, deep-sea fishing, catamaran sailing and surfing.

Costa Rica has a good range of hotels, retreats and private villas to suit all budgets and styles.  Spending a few nights in each region is the best way to appreciate and experience the country’s incredible diversity. READ MORE
