A Luxury Trip to the Central Valley

The area surrounding the capital city of San Jose features coffee plantations, mountains and smouldering volcanoes.  This fertile region, known as the central highlands, is home to almost three quarters of the population.

To the west, is Monteverde, famous for its immense biodiversity and cloud forests.  Favoured by naturalists, its abundant flora includes 2,500 species of plant, and a huge variety of orchids.  These pristine habitats are populated by ocelots, margays, tapirs, monkeys, keel-billed toucan, umbrella birds, the endangered Quetzal, and some 30 species of hummingbird.

To the north, the mighty Arenal volcano rises out of thick forest.  The Arenal National Park is known to contain half the known species of birds, mammals and reptiles.

We organise private visits to coffee and chocolate farms, hot air ballooning, trekking and horseback riding, rappelling down waterfalls and zip lining through cloud forests.  To the south, the twisting canyons of the Talamanca mountains offer the best white water rafting and canyoning in the country.
