For nature lovers Costa Rica’s flourishing green rainforest, palm fringed white-sand beaches, an abundance of birdlife and monkeys in the trees is like a garden of Eden. The cloud forest reserves like Monteverde, with a combination of mist-shrouded trees, climate and altitude make the experience of hiking a true adventure. Our naturalist guides will explain about the natural history from the tiny poison-arrow frogs to the giant buttress-rooted trees. The more active can go on canopy walks and zip-lines through the trees. Costa Rica is a safe and welcoming country where English is widely spoken, and protecting the natural resources is high on the agenda.
