It is little wonder that the slogan “pura vida” (pure life) is often associated with Costa Rica. With over 25% of the county’s land being protected in the form of national parks and reserves, it has earned a reputation as one of the world’s most eco-minded countries. There has been no army in Costa Rica since 1949, at which time the defense budget was redirected towards education, health and the environment. The country enjoys over 800 miles of dramatic coastline facing the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and in between the country’s landscape is a continual showcase of natural wonders, from thundering waterfalls and rainforests alive with wildlife, volcanoes, geysers and stunning flora. What’s not to love?
Choose from one of our two annual journeys, in February and March as we explore all of the highlights of this tropical paradise….Tortuguero National Park with its unique flora and fauna, including 300 bird species, the relaxing pools of Tabacon Hot Springs, Arenal Volcano National Park with two active volcanoes; enjoy a cruise through tropical mangroves of the Caribbean coast and take in the stunning views in the Monteverde Cloud Forest where you’ll find some of the worlds’ most colourful bird life.
Enjoy a leisurely pace throughout our journey with two night stays in most centres visited. Accommodation in lovely lodges and hotels in tropical settings provides a relaxing atmosphere and staff are notably friendly and eager to please. You will also find time to explore on your own, take a nature walk, go for a swim or perhaps enjoy a nap.
This peaceful, green jewel is bursting with natural charm and beauty and I encourage you to trade our frigid winter for a couple of weeks of tropical magic. Our early booking bonus of $200 per person is still available but will expire soon. Reserve your places now and look forward to a delightful escape this winter!
Sincerely, David Craig, President
