WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS TRIP

The stars of this trip are the dramatic landscapes of Central America. Think active volcanoes, idyllic beaches and emerald jungles.

Quaint Suchitoto is a contemporary arts hub with a colonial facade. Flower-studded balconies, galleries housed in 19th-century buildings and a lake frequented by thousands of local birds – this little town is a real heart-snatcher.

Stray off the beaten track in El Cuco, where the dark-sand beaches are secluded and the surf breaks are gentle and reliable.

Hike, cycle or zip-line through the steamy cloud forests of Monteverde.

Encounter Costa Rica's famous Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna. Whether it's reflected in the serene waters of the lake or heating the thermal pools you're soaking in, the magnificent volcano always makes its presence felt.

The colourful murals and baroque buildings of lesser-known Leon make it a joy to explore on foot.
