Travel to Costa Rica

Although Costa Rica is the 3rd smallest country of the Americas, with a land area of approximately 20,000 square miles (about twice the size of Vermont), it has an enormous variety of topography, and subsequently a diverse array of climates. Only 10 degrees from the equator, higher temperatures are not only to be expected, but found. Surprisingly, high in the mountain tops, frost can be found as well.  

The amount of rainfall and humidity varies with altitude, distance from coastline and regional winds, producing an unparalleled multiplicity of flora and fauna throughout the nation.  Some of the highlights include 1,500 distinct types of trees and 6,000 types of flowering plants, including 1,000 species of orchids alone. Add to that 830 identified species of birds and countless mammals and reptiles and you can see how Costa Rica is believed to be the most bio-diverse land area on the planet.

You can find lots of different tours for all interests including adventure & sports, small group, overland, multi-active walking, cycling, kayaking and wildlife. You will get an experience guide, meet other travellers, go off the beaten track, have a lot of fun and get taken to the very best locations in the country.

On most tours you will travel overland in a private small tour van. For day trips and excursions sometimes you will use public transport and sometimes use internal flights to allow you to see the highlights as quick as possible.
