Costa Rica holidays are all about appreciating nature at its most glorious, and a trip through Costa Rica’s varied landscapes is a sensory experience like few others. This picture-perfect and pocket-sized country, with two beautiful coastlines separated by a spine of extremely active volcanoes, is home to a remarkable array of resplendent rainforests (many of them primary); jade-green rivers and remote waterfalls flanked by tropical vegetation; and cloud forest-coated volcanoes and wild beaches. These habitats are, in turn, home to vividly-coloured wildlife and Jurassic-sized flowers. Explore the
magnificent national parks alongside an expert guide and discover the Pacific coastline with a private cruise through Ballena National Maritime Park. While the country is renowned for its natural beauty, it’s also worth exploring the buzzing capital city of San José, with its historic neighbourhoods and weekend markets. Wander through its lively centre with a local guide, who will introduce you to the best of the city’s contemporary art galleries and gastronomic treats (located in Barrio Escalante, San José’s foodie district). A short flight can take you from the cloud forests of the Central Valley to the surfing beaches of the Pacific coastline, where avid surfers can ride the waves to their heart’s content. Playa Nosara, Jaco and Tamarindo offer suitably idyllic options for soaking up the sunshine, or travel to the Caribbean Coast for immense black sand beaches, backed by dense jungle. Once you’ve marvelled at the extraordinary array of wildlife found in the national parks and cloud forests, venture beneath the ocean to see equally intriguing marine life.

What our clients say about us
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!
