Central America's Garden of Eden
Using specialist naturalist guides and charming small-scale accommodation in the heart of Costa Rica
The great expanse of The Americas stretches from USA in the north, to Chile and Argentina in the south, embracing three distinct yet equally beguiling continents: South America, Central America, and North America. With its diverse history and culture, South America is one of the world's most inspiring regions. From Ecuador to Peru and Patagonia there are imprints of an astonishing variety of civilisations for visitors to discover.
The landscapes are equally varied providing habits for an abundance of wildlife; snow-capped mountains and plunging canyons, impenetrable jungles teeming with wildlife; trackless deserts, burning salt flats; thundering waterfalls and mighty glaciers. The great Amazon River and its waterways plus the tropical wetlands of the Pantanal are the best places for wildlife such as exotic bird, jaguars, caimans and giant otters. The Colombian Amazon is lesser known but offers the chance to see the rare pink river dolphins.
Central America is essentially a land bridge uniting the two larger land masses of North and South America. Its scenery is endlessly dramatic with rugged mountains and volcanoes, coastal plains, lakes, forests and jungles that sustain a fabulous wealth of flora and fauna. Its culture is based largely on the legacy of the Maya and the Spanish colonial period that have bequeathed the region with its religion, language, distinctive architecture and character.
Comprising Canada and the USA (the world's second and third largest countries respectively) North America understandably boasts a wealth of variation in geography, climate, culture and modern history. Travel opportunities abound for those looking for sophisticated cities, extraordinary National Parks and amazing landscapes.
