Costa Rica

In its natural wonders, Costa Rica is Central America's jewel. Thanks to a natural abundance of flora and fauna, and stunning scenery of cloud forests, rivers, volcanoes and wild beaches, you can enjoy adventure, wildlife viewing and relaxation. Giant sea turtles haul themselves onto remote shores, dolphin pods play in the waves, while inland the quiet forest is home to sloths and rare quetzals.

Known as the ’Rich Coast’, Costa Rica is a land of mist-shrouded cloud forests, rivers, wild beaches, exotic wildlife and majestic volcanoes. Costa Rica straddles the heart of Central America and is touched by both the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean. The jewel of Central America is at the forefront of eco and adventure tourism and is home to endangered sea turtles, hundreds of species of birds, mischievous monkeys and jungle cats. All in all, its sheer diversity makes Costa Rica a superb destination for families and couples alike. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Costa Rica:

  • For a taste of adventure when in Costa Rica, raft through the rainforest down the Pacuare River to stay at the superb Pacuare Lodge.
  • Surfing must be tried during your stay in Costa Rica. Head to the Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific coast for great surf, where warm waters and schools of dolphins mean that, even for beginners, surfing is delightful.
  • Explore the abundant wildlife and fantastic wild beaches of the Osa Peninsula.
