Costa Rica

What We Love

  • Waking up to a gang of howler monkeys calling to each other through the jungle canopy, announcing the start of each new day.
  • World-class surfing up and down the coast of the Osa Peninsula.
  • Accommodations as varied as the country’s biodiversity, from boutique yoga retreats to five-star luxury hotels. This is one of our favorite family trips. 

Things To See & Do

  • Search the rivers and beaches of Tortuguero National Park and the Osa Peninsula for jaguars, sloths, and poison dart frogs.
  • Ascend into the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve on suspended bridges with an expert naturalist who can identify 400 species of birds, thousands of plant genus, and the rarely seen tapir.
  • Zip-line through the jungle.
  • Ride horses down an empty beach
  • Relax in volcanic hot springs or on breathtaking Pacific and Caribbean beaches.


Combine With

A Costa Rican adventure pairs well with a visit to another biodiverse wonder of the world—the Galápagos Islands—or to other hot destinations in Central and South America.
