It was Christopher Columbus who coined the name ‘Rich Coast' as he surveyed Costa Rica’s Caribbean shores, and you’ll be inclined to agree after exploring the infinite beaches and pristine rainforests of this small Central American country. Running down 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 February 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). This uplifting slogan is much more than merely a ubiquitous greeting; it’s a way life for Ticos (Costa Rican natives) and embodies their laid-back, positive attitude. Allow this sunny disposition to rub off on you during Costa Rica February holidays, as you leave behind the less desirable winter weather of the UK. February sits slap-bang in the middle of the country’s dry season, with temperatures hovering in the mid-30s, blue skies and (hopefully) not a raincloud in sight – in our humble opinion, you can’t get much more pura vida than that.

Oliver couldn’t have been more helpful - we had a very specific, and not totally simple, brief and timeline. Oliver’s experience in the area was very clear and he created a fantastic itinerary for us. As to the trip itself - it was totally magical. The quality of the concierge and tour guides was top notch - the latter was a big part of the trip (we went on numerous tours) and added hugely to the success of the trip. Activities were spot on for our boys. Best were humpback whale watching for us, zip-lining for the boys! Family rooms and suites were great too, so we could all be together. The modem was a great touch and very useful. The app - and all the information within it - was also great. Victor the Concierge was wonderful - from providing us with local currency so we could use a toll bridge as we left San Jose, to sending us regular route updates and restaurant recommendations. Lounge access is always a fab touch! And the meet and greet takes away all the stress of trying to work out logistics when arriving somewhere new. Both add to the feeling of R&R. All in all, Original Travel were superb!
