President's Pick - Costa Rica

Post date: Author:

Stunning natural wonders, lush rainforests alive with over three hundred species of birds, spectacular flora, volcanoes, thundering waterfalls, fascinating wildlife…how can one not be impressed? This is Costa Rica! With over 25% of the country’s land being protected in the form of national parks and reserves, the country has earned a reputation as one of the world’s most eco-minded countries.

Several years ago, I had the pleasure of leading a group of our clients on a February getaway here and I can honestly report that this amazing country was everything and more than I anticipated. Costa Rica has been for many years an annual favourite for Craig travellers. Year after year, it has been so popular that we operate two winter tours. February 2022 is no exception and our first departure is already sold out.  The February 22nd departure still has some space and if you’re ready to “get out of town” on a warm winter getaway, give our Costa Rica adventure a try!

Our itinerary explores all of the highlights of this tropical paradise…Tortuguero National Park where the bird watching and wildlife is delightful and almost within arm’s reach. During our visit, we could hear a troupe of monkeys swinging from the trees above our cabins in the rainforest. At Arenal Volcano National Park, where there are two active volcanoes, we were able to see tree frogs at night and took advantage of some great photo opportunities. At a very informative tour at a coffee plantation, we learned about the process of farming and roasting the beans. I now have an enhanced appreciation of my morning cup of java! A cruise through the mangroves of Damas Island and exploring the Monteverde Cloud Forest were also highlights! There was leisure time on occasion to relax by the pool or take a nature walk through the grounds of our lovely lodges.

I invite you to view some of my photos here.
