A LUXURY VACATION TO COSTA RICA

A tropical corridor between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica presents a landscape of rainforest, soaring volcanoes, lava fields, hot springs, rich pastureland and pristine coastline.

A journey to Costa Rica encompasses raw nature, spectacular wildlife, and two famously dramatic coastlines. It is one of our favourite destinations for luxury family vacations and adventure travel, be that for horseback riding, surfing, hiking, canopy, rafting or kayaking.

WHY VISIT COSTA RICA?

Costa Rica is famed for its invigorating pura vida lifestyle, commitment to sustainability and ambitious climate change policies.

With an impressive 30 national parks and over a quarter of the country under conservation, Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet. Its jungles thrum with wildlife, including sloths, jaguars, tapirs, toucans, macaws, turtles, howler monkeys and manatees.

Don’t miss whale season in the Osa Peninsula, from August through October, and remember to ask about our collection of working haciendas and luxury estates.

COSTA RICA INSPIRATION

Select a Sense

Costa Rican cuisine, known for its fresh, tropical flavours, prominently features rice and beans in dishes like Gallo Pinto. Interestingly, a key ingredient in Gallo Pinto is salsa lizano – very similiar to Worcestershire Sauce. Fresh fruits like mangoes, pineapples, and papayas are staples. Seafood is abundant on the coast.

For a unique beverage experience, try the traditional, milky-horchatas or the refreshing, fruity refrescos.

Costa Rica’s marimba provides the backbone for many traditional tunes. Calypso rhythms reflect the Afro-Caribbean heritage, especially on the Caribbean coast.

LISTEN IN
