Costa Rica is an adventurer's dream. Blessed with beaches and biodiversity, this mystical land of smoking volcanoes, twisting rivers, and lush jungles filled with exotic plants and animals makes it the perfect destination to fulfill your adventure needs!
If you've never been to a rain forest, make sure to take the time to include this in your travels. It's a different world and one of the greatest examples of nature, wildlife, flora and fauna. Imagine being on the set of Jurassic Park but without the dinosaurs. Towering trees so thick that it would take ten people holding hands to wrap around the trunk, and plants with leaves as big as surfboards. Walking through the rain forest is the kind of experience that reminds you how much bigger nature is that all of us.
Imagine digging your toes into sun soaked sand then running into an oncoming wave that washes over your body like a warm and refreshing splash of sunshine. Costa Rica maintains over 25% of her land as parks and nature preserves, and the country keeps the entire coast line open to the public. Like the Corona commercial says... Find Your Beach. In Costa Rica it's easy to do, you've got a lot to choose from. Tell us what your idea of a beach vacation is and we'll help you find your beach.
Some volcanoes are silent, some are smoking, some are rumbling and some are downright spewing venom. Costa Rica has over 200 identifiable volcanic formations dating back more than 65 million years. Today, however, only 100 or so show any signs of volcanic activity, while just five are classified as active with at least one eruption since 1994. Coupled with hot springs, lush forests, and epics hiking trails... a trip to the volcanoes is a must!
Coffee is a rich and fascinating part of Costa Rica's culture. The hills overlooking San Jose are filled with coffee plantations, which thrive in the cool highlands climate. We love planning itineraries that begin or end with a stay at a boutique hotel in these coffee hills to give you that bonus experience completely different from the rest of your travels throughout Costa Rica. How about we meet for a cup of coffee and start planning your next adventure down here.
