The ultimate playground

Costa Rica is deservedly known as the Jewel of Central America and has been rightly lauded as one of the top travel destinations for adventure. A nature lover’s playground, the country never fails to charm. Spend your days here kayaking through thrilling rapids, riding horseback to stunning waterfalls and zip lining through the lush canopy. Not to mention, we stay at properties that only add to your experience; from a stunning eco-lodge to a secluded estancia, there’s adventure here for everyone!

*While the colder months can be a tempting time to travel in Costa Rica, note that June-August is equally as lovely and far less busy.
