It was Christopher Columbus who coined the name ‘Rich Coast', as he surveyed Costa Rica’s Caribbean shores, and you’d be inclined to agree after exploring the infinite beaches and pristine rainforests of this small Central American country. Running down the the middle are mountains peppered with gently smoking volcanoes, and magical cloud forests populated by an unreal profusion of birds, including the magnificent quetzal.
Costa Rica winter holidays are, quite literally, paradise for nature lovers. Along with the dense virgin rainforests, with their exceptional biodiversity, there are vast sandy beaches where turtles come to breed and clear waters teeming with colourful fish. Add hot springs, thrilling jungle zip wires and luxurious eco hotels, and "Pura vida!" (as the locals say).
