Costa Rica has a varied network of national parks that protect an impressive 25% of the country. They vary in size from small pockets of cloud forest to large areas of the country and each offers something different, so whether you are after a stretch of coast or a mountain retreat you will find it here
If you are looking for adventure you’ll find it here with rafting, hiking, mountain biking, horse-riding, surfing and zip-lining through the forest canopy. The grand rivers of Costa Rica have impressive rapids that offer world class rafting of different grades to suit all adrenalin needs. It’s easy to see why Costa Rica has become the world’s leading ‘eco-tourism’ destination.
The famed cloud forest reserve of Monteverde found in the north of the country is positively teeming with life. The sight of the sun setting over the pacific ocean is stunning from up here.
Tortuguero is set in dense rainforest on the Caribbean coast, far from any roads, where a network of backwaters offers unrivalled opportunities to view the abundant wildlife up close. Literally thousands of Green Turtles land on these beaches to nest each year, giving the place its name.
The perfect volcanic cone of Arenal is one of the most active in the world, regularly spouting lava. This firework display can be best appreciated at night while you soak in thermal spring waters with a cocktail in your hand.

My wife and I would not consider using anyone else for arranging travel in Central and South America. Their high level of knowledge, attention to detail and personal responsiveness is almost unique within the industry.
