Discover Costa Rica Tours

Named the 'rich coast' by the early Spanish conquistadors, Costa Rica is one of the worlds' most naturally splendid and biologically diverse countries. A nature-lover's paradise, this beautiful destination boasts an envious record of environmental care, along with a magnificent coastline on both the Pacific and Caribbean sides. 

Where can I visit during my guided tour to Costa Rica?

Our Costa Rica tours invite you to take a journey through this land of smouldering volcanoes, dramatic landscapes, highlands and lowlands, plantations, dense rainforests and misty cloud forests. With over a quarter of the country legally protected, Costa Rica is a haven for wildlife. Home to over 850 species of birds and exotic vegetation and flora – where there are over 2,000 species of orchid to delight visitors – this idyllic destination is not to be missed.

Its literacy rate of around 95% and the disbandment of armed forces suggests a political enlightenment to complement its environmental credentials. It is extraordinary that Costa Rica is so little known despite how much there is to see and do here – which is why you must book your trip today!

If visiting national parks to witness the beauty of hundreds of bird species sounds like an ideal way to spend your trip, why not opt for our Central America’s Garden of Eden Birdwatchers tour? Not only will you get the opportunity to visit Savegre Natural Reserve, but you will also take a boat trip exploring the Amazonesque channels surrounding the Tortuguero Lagoon before visiting a reserve that is home to nearly half of the species of birds in Costa Rica.

If a journey to discover diverse landscapes is more suited to you, opt to walk, cruise and fly to different destinations within Costa Rica on our Grand Tour.

When is the best time to go on a Costa Rica escorted tour?

Being the height of the dry season, March is a very popular time for visitors to head to Costa Rica. As the humidity is also a lot lower, you can get stuck in to many activities. However, if you prefer to travel between December and May, this is also considered warm, dry season.

In the Central Valley, where the main centres of population are located, the average temperature is 22°C (72°F) and the region enjoys a spring-like climate year round. In the coastal areas, the temperature is much hotter and humid, while the Pacific Northwest can be extremely hot and dry.

The 'warm' dry season is December to May, though temperature differences between summer and winter are slight. March is the height of the dry season, and the humidity is lower at this time, making this a popular time for visitors.
