Costa Rica

A tropical corridor between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, Costa Rica presents a landscape of rainforest, rich pastureland, pristine coastline and soaring volcanoes home to the greatest diversity of birdlife on the planet.

Having demobilised the national army in 1948, this is one of the safest, most stable countries in Latin America famed for its invigorating pura vida lifestyle.

With over a quarter of the country under conservation, Costa Rica’s jungles provide the ideal habitat for a dizzying array of fauna including sloths, jaguars, toucans, macaws, turtles and manatees.

Whether undertaking the adventure by helicopter, sailboat, on horseback, raft, zipline or quadbike, our mission is to help you discover the essence of this enchanting land.

What people say

  • Pabro was the most amazing guide in the world. He was absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, he went the extra mile over everything - he even prepared two incredible dinners for us with fish we caught - he was incredibly well organised and knew everyone and everything wherever we went. He was extremely knowledgeable about history, animals, birds, plants, fish and everything about Costa Rica. We felt ourselves to be extremely fortunate to have him throughout our fabulous trip.
  • I cannot tell you what an amazing time we are having...how did you manage it?!
  • We were delighted with the trip we have just completed to Brazil and Argentina. We walked down Copacabana beach, watched a tapir swim past our canoe in the Pantanal, were submerged in the Iguazu falls, conquered desert and vineyards in northwest Argentina, experienced a snowstorm in the Andes, fed Cayman off horseback and enjoyed a tango show in probably the finest city in South America. A truly memorable experience: we have no hesitation in recommending Plan South America.
