Fancy a walk on the wild side? Costa Rica is the place. Home to 29 undisturbed national parks, each thrumming with the sounds of this Central American paradise’s exotic residents, Costa Rica wildlife holidays promise an off-grid adventure like no other. With half a million animal and plant species, it is one of the world’s most biodiverse countries. Don’t believe us? Grab your walking boots and head into the spellbinding Rincon de la Vieja National Park or hop on a boat through the glassy waters of the Tortuguero canals to find out. You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve gate-crashed a live-action Disney film,
as fiery-billed aracari chat above your head and curious caiman eyes spy you while meandering through their coastal waterways. For budding conservationists, a trip to the Curú National Wildlife Refuge is a must during wildlife holidays in Costa Rica. Follow this with a guided hike into the majestic Tenorio Volcano National Park, plus a relaxing dip in their rejuvenating hot springs. Apart from reminding you why Costa Rica is the global green pioneer, that is on track to decarbonize the economy by 2050, it confirms the pura vida (pure life) pulse that beats throughout this conscientious country. Get chatting to a howler monkey and we’re sure they’ll agree.

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!
