WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS TRIP

Swap the concrete jungle for the real thing on this trip into the rainforests, waterways, hot springs and palm-lined beaches of Costa Rica.

Long-nosed tapirs, white-faced capuchin monkeys, elegant ocelots and three-toed sloths – Costa Rica is home to all manner of exotic native animals, and this trip puts you in the perfect position to spot them.

Spend three days in the dense, vibrant forest of Monteverde, home to one of the worlds most elusive birds – the resplendent quetzal.

Go deeper than the average tourist with a homestay in a quiet agricultural community, the perfect opportunity to experience local life and practice your Espanol.

End mornings of hiking through lush forest with soaks in rejuvenating springs that get their heat from volcanic activity in La Fortuna.

Begin and end your trip in lively San Jose, where you can choose to see a more urbane side of Costa Rica on optional craft beer or nightlife tours.
