Few places in the world offer such contrasts in scenic beauty as Costa Rica, and despite being only two thirds the size of Scotland, it presents a unique land of wondrous and exiting tropical geography and wildlife.
Just 10 degrees north of the Equator, and at its narrowest point only 75 miles separates the Pacific Ocean from the Caribbean, Costa Rica was named by Christopher Columbus in 1502 in the belief that the land was filled with precious minerals. More than a quarter of the country is safeguarded in one form or another, with over 10% designated as National Park land. It's one of the easiest and safest tropical countries to explore, with the most stable government in Latin America - there have been no military coups, terrorism or dictatorships that have characterised other nations in this part of the world for over half a century.
Our experienced tour leaders and local guides guarantee that enthusiasts will discover the true nature of the country. They’ll lead you off the beaten track for an authentic native experience which you can enjoy in security and confidence.
While exploring Costa Rica with us, you can enjoy deserted white sand beaches, which are perfect for strolling along at sunset.
Walking in Costa Rica ranges from easy gentle paths to more strenuous and challenging hikes through the mountains. Catering to all levels of experience, we'll offer you the holiday of a lifetime.
