Sandwiched between Nicaragua and Panama, Costa Rica has both a Pacific and Caribbean coastline, with a lush rainforest interior that is home to numerous species of animals and plants. Many people travel to this part of the world solely for the purposes of ecotourism and with the many national parks in the country, they are never disappointed with their choice of destination. However, if beaches rate highly on your list of priorities when travelling overseas, you will find that Costa Rica is not lacking in this department either. In fact, if your dream holiday consists of several days spent exploring virgin rainforest followed by a couple of days lazing on the beach topping up your tan, you will not find a better destination anywhere in Central or South America.
Costa Rica Highlights
The La Paz Waterfall Gardens, featuring a wildlife preserve that is home to monkeys and jungle cats, along with many species of birds and butterflies, is definitely one of the highlights of any visit to Costa Rica. Within easy reach of the capital, San José, it is a great place to start your exploration of this small but fascinating country’s interior.
Scuba diving enthusiasts will find many superb dive sites waiting to be discovered when they travel to Costa Rica; if this is something that interests you, we are more than happy to organise custom tours of the country that include plenty of time for diving.
There can be few more energising and enjoyable pursuits that white-water river rafting in a tropical paradise and if you book one of our tours in Costa Rica, you can look forward to doing just this on the Pacuare River. While not available as part of all our standard packages, you can always customise one to include this particular excursion in your itinerary if it is something you would like to try. Passing through stunning canyons and areas of unspoilt rainforest on a raft that is travelling at speed along class III and IV rapids has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime!
Whatever you would like to see and do during your time in the country, the team at South America Tours Pty Ltd can make all the necessary arrangements. We have a great deal of experience organising tours in this part of the world and we are dedicated to ensuring that all your trips are ones you will remember for the rest of your life.
