Travel to Costa Rica and experience its incredible natural attractions
Even in a region well known for its natural diversity, Costa Rica is still a stand out. Thanks to a longstanding tradition of preserving its natural assets, much of the country’s verdant rainforest still stands, opportunities for nature-based adventures abound and the beaches on both coasts are in exceptional nick. As a result, the nation’s cultural riches can oft end up overlooked – but here too the country has much to offer. Costa Ricans are widely regarded as some of the world’s friendliest people and on this trip – in between exploring the country’s most famous national parks –you’ll get to know them while lending a hand on a rural farmstay and kicking back in the rustic beach town of Quepos.
Wander through the artisan stalls of San Jose’s Plaza de la Cultura
Learn some home-cooked recipes on a visit to the Juanilama agricultural community
Hike the forested jungle trails of Manuel Antonio National Park
Take a soak in La Fortuna’s lava-heated thermal springs
Try to spy the resplendent quetzal in Monteverde’s cloud forest
Chill out amid Quepos’ blissed out surf town vibe

I want to thank @IntrepidTravel and especially our guide, Brayan for making our Costa Rica adventure so memorable. We had a great group . Brayan worked very hard to see to it that everyone got to experience CR in their own way. It made me appreciate how hard these guides work to coordinate everything. We could never have done or seen all that we did in such a short time frame without them. They were all very proud of their country and shared Pura Vida with us! 🌴🐟🐊🐒🍍🌺🌸
