From blissful beaches and palm-fringed shores to volcanic terrain and dense jungle, Costa Rica’s landscapes are a destination highlight and can all be experienced in their best light during Costa Rica summer holidays. Although our summer is technically Costa Rica’s winter (and the rainy season), the weather during mornings and early afternoons remains delightful and temperatures rarely stray below the mid-20s. Travelling between May and June coincides with the ‘green season’, when the seasons are in transition and the country is generally quieter. In our humble opinion, witnessing the lush rainforests
and blossoming vegetation (minus the crowds) is well-worth braving a few showers for. In July and August, much of the country also tends to experience a dip in rainfall – referred to as veranillo (mini summer) – promising the climate of Costa Rican summers, without the throngs of sun-seeking tourists. Certain regions are actually at their best during Costa Rica summer holidays, such as Arenal and the Caribbean coast, while the summer months also see some special wildlife events. Head to Tortuguero National Park between July and September to experience turtle nesting season – watching the hatchlings scurry towards the shallows is a magical sight. Embrace the pura vida way of life during a holiday which effortlessly combines a beach break with intrepid jungle trekking and adrenaline-inducing adventure activities, against emerald-green backdrops.

Costa Rica customer reviews (4 reviews)
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!
