No other country in the world has done more to preserve its natural heritage than Costa Rica. With over 25 percent of its land mass protected as national parks and reserves, we have ample opportunity to experience the natural beauty of this diverse land - from tropical rainforests to windswept beaches, from tranquil lagoons to mountain-top cloud forests that surround active volcanoes. In each area we shall see flora and fauna that is either unique to this region or nearly extinct in other parts of the world. Carefully planned to offer an overview of all the different eco-systems that exist in this unique land, this programme also ensures comfortable accommodations and ample time in which to experience its bio-diversity. A balance of included sightseeing and leisure time will ensure that you travel at a comfortable pace. During free time, members can choose their own activity level - relaxing in the pleasant surroundings of our comfortable resorts or joining optional excursions to fill your time. This tour will have limited membership - if this is your year to experience the wonders of Costa Rica, we urge you to enroll early.
