Biodiverse and culturally rich, coastally rugged and beautifully beachy; this jungle-covered Central American country draws a range of holidaymakers to its diverse natural attractions. One thing everyone who visits has in common though is the opportunity to enjoy a truly distinctive travel experience. From the towering volcanoes of Poás and Arenal, to the quetzal birds, tapirs and spider monkeys of Tortuguero National Park’s protected rainforest, adventure is never far away.

Great Reasons to Holiday in Costa Rica

  • Smile – It’s the world’s happiest country, so says the Happy Planet Index.
  • Exploration – Discover three major national parks: Manuel Antonio National Park, Tortuguero National Park and Corcovado National Park.
  • Relaxation – Top international hotels dotted along both Atlantic and Pacific coastlines provide ample spa, dining and beachside R&R for the fly & flop crowd.
  • Climate – It’s tropical year round.
  • Flora & fauna – For a country with a tiny proportion of the world’s land mass, it contains a staggering 5% of its biodiversity. There are over 50 humming bird species alone.
  • Cuisine – Traditional tamale cooking infusing African, native American and Spanish influences creates a fresh, fiery mix for the foodie traveller.

Things to Do in Costa Rica

Take a salsa, soca, bachata, cumbia or any number of dance classes that join Costa Rican Swing in the country’s vibrant music scene.

Head to the pacific coast to watch baby sea turtles hatching on the beaches.

Soak up some rays on the world’s best beach. It’s subjective of course, but many say Drake Bay on the Osa Peninsula is number one.

Witness the ethereally blue water of the Rio Celeste river that winds through Tenorio Volcano National park.
