Costa Rica Holiday

“Pura vida” (or the “simple life”) is more than just a saying in Costa Rica — it’s a way of living. This Central American country is one of the happiest in the world.

Your Costa Rica Holiday Itinerary

  • Day 1: Most travellers fly into Juan Santamaria International Airport, just outside San José. Drop off your bags at your hotel before exploring downtown San José, including Mercado Central and the historic neighbourhood of Barrio Amón.

  • Day 2-4: Book a rental car and drive north for around 3 hours to La Fortuna. This is the base for exploring Arenal Volcano National Park. Continue to Monteverde and explore its mystical Cloud Forest Reserve, zip line parks and suspension bridges.

  • Day 5-6: Next stop, Manuel Antonio National Park. Keep your eyes peeled for sloths and the resplendent but elusive quetzal bird.
