If you’re struggling to decide between a city break, a sizzling summer holiday or a jungle adventure, pack your bags for a Costa Rica holiday package. White sands, blue waters and perfect surf conditions surround this central American marvel – one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. In a nation of rainforests, you can pack your Costa Rica travel package to swim under waterfalls, zipline through the canopy, climb Cloud Forest suspension bridges and party in culture-rich San José, the capital, where the vibing nightlife is the best in the country. Costa Rica adventure holidays are unforgettable.
Costa Rica's eastern coast is the Caribbean coast where you can enjoy white sandy beaches as well as the clear turquoise water. It's easy to relax on the beach, but you'll still find plenty of adventures to enjoy if you're looking for a more active experience. Surfing, swimming and snorkelling are quite common, and you'll also find opportunities for diving if you're feeling brave.
The South Pacific Coast of Costa Rica is one of the least visited regions in the country, which is a shame because it has some truly incredible features. You'll find some of the most tranquil beaches in the country along with a vibrant rainforest that comprises most of the inland region. Additionally, the lack of serious crowds here makes it one of the best places in the country to relax.
Manuel Antonio National Park is home to breathtaking natural beauty and adventures to enjoy including a dense rainforest with well-kept walking trails and 3 distinct iconic beaches. The wildlife here is also quite impressive and diverse letting you see some incredible animals along the way. The views are picturesque no matter where you are with colour and life in every direction.
Tamarindo is an iconic beach town that lets you indulge all your desires for watersports. It's most widely known for its surfing opportunities, as the waves here tend to be perfect for those looking to ride the board. Of course, you'll also find opportunities for sailing and snorkelling. Outside of the water, you can enjoy ziplining and even volcano hikes thanks to the mountain in the area.
