Costa Rica Highlights

The intrepid travellers’ ultimate fantasy: Two coastlines of uninterrupted caramel sands, a skyline piqued with volcanoes, and ancient tribes to seek out in the midst of a dense jungle. Costa Rica is nothing but a sensation.


Whilst it may be bordered by gorgeous beaches, we love Costa Rica for the adventure playground it lays before us. It’s the times when we have surrendered ourselves to this wild environment that we have felt most alive, as we’ve ziplined over volcanoes and peered into the lives of ancient tribes. A place to push yourself, a tailormade vacation in Costa Rica makes for an unmissable adventure.

Corcovado National Park Beach in Costa Rica


The jungles are dense, the beaches luxurious, and the culture utterly magnetic – this is Costa Rica. This country draws you in and pulls you close, from the Pacific to the Carribean and everything in between. Were convinced that no other Central American country currently specializes in luxury like Costa Rica does, and we’re fully invested. From the tree tops of the rainforests to the treasures of the oceanside, a multitude of surprises are in store while vacationing in this country.


A destination fit for daredevils, the captivating country of Costa Rica is best unearthed from soaring ziplines, crushing white rapids, and volcano summits. A tailormade tour of this phenomenal region can be customized to include the region’s most pulse-racing thrills, including meet and greets with exotic animals, treks through the misty rainforest, and overnight stays to remote resorts. In such an intrepid and glorious land, it’s only right to fuel your adrenaline in what’s nicknamed ‘the adventure capital of Central America.’


Home to endless stretches of postcard-worthy beaches, the glistening waters on both the Pacific and Carribean side attract travelers from all corners of the globe. Needless to say, only a lucky few experience it with the Black Tomato treatment. Head to Arenal for a dose of life on the cusp of Manuel Antonio National Park, a paradise of crystal clear waters and dreamy resorts. Alternatively, Puerto Jimenez offers guests easy access to both pristine beaches and one of the country’s most vivacious rainforests.


Costa Rica is a country synonymous with ecotourism. In all of its lush, green splendour, it proudly boasts a collective-array of luxury options for those interested in sustainability and conservation. The local mangroves and rainforests are showered with properties that offer guests intimate opportunities to interact and give back to the country’s quaint villages and exotic wildlife. Whether seeking to learn more about reducing your carbon footprint or interested in minimizing the negative impact humans have on the planet’s biodiversity, Costa Rica serves as a mecca for the curious and philanthropic.

Lapa Rios


Feel what it truly means to experience the ‘pura vida’ (pure life). Wild, untamed and visually flawless, the Osa peninsula is a playground for adventure and discovery. Go zip-lining through the expansive jungle that envelops Drake Bay and allow one of our expert guides to talk you through the wildlife that inhabits Corcovado Park. Take up the challenge of a two-day hike through the rainforest lowlands, where you’ll be rewarded with hidden lagoons, secret beaches and a romantic picnic courtesy of us.

The village of Tortuguero is a nature lover’s paradise and the place to go to see the resident baby turtles take their first steps towards the shores that line the idyllic Limón Province. Channel your inner Attenborough on a spellbinding night tour spotting turtles (nesting season is July–October and hatching season late August–November), float down the rainforest-lined river on the lookout for sloths and spider monkeys, or simply take yourself off to the beach for a digital detox and let the waves lap at your feet.

Manuel Antonio National Park, Capuchin Monkeys


With close to 680 hectares of pristine tropical utopia to explore across Manuel Antonio National Park, falling in love with Costa Rica’s rich, rugged, and biodiverse jewel is easy. Find your groove as we take you on a hike around its mangrove swamps and lagoons, listening to stories of the Quepoa tribe that roamed the land in the pre-Colombian era. Head out to sea, where a romantic champagne dinner for two awaits, before heading back to Manuel Antonio Beach in time to observe a vibrant sunset you’ll never forget.

Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica


Looming large over the highlands of northern Costa Rica, is the mighty Arenal volcano. We’ll arrange a guided helicopter tour to give you a unique, bird’s-eye view of the currently dormant natural wonder. Or charter a ride on a deep-sea submarine into the mysterious waters of the Pacific Ocean waiting at the foot of this ancient wonder. Afterwards, unwind like royalty at the Nayara tented camp, where gourmet cuisine and plunge pools fed by hot springs come as standard. 

Luxury beach holidays in Costa Rica


Loosen up and relax on the laidback Nicoya Peninsula, where barefoot luxury awaits. The Florblanca Resort will steal your heart, whether you’re there for the honeymoon suite with its own private beach or the legendary surf house where your world-class instructor is on hand to sharpen your skills on Santa Teresa Beach. If breaking waves is not on your agenda, then you can explore the Pacific coast by horseback or simply enjoy an exclusive yoga session.

Pacuare Lodge, Costa Rica | Black Tomato


White water rafting? We’ll take you down Costa Rica’s scenic Río Pacuare, where you’ll zip through forests home to jaguars, ocelots, and countless wild birds before you arrive at the romantic Pacuare Lodge for a spot of downtime. Go all-out here in the canopy suite and get closer to nature with your own dining platform complete with river views and a private hammock. We love the true sense of serenity the views here impart on you. Work worries? No worries.

Pura Vida is a phrase commonly used throughout Costa Rica. This expression translates to ‘pure life,’ and we can’t help but notice this state of mind is reflected throughout the country’s unique and forward-thinking hotels and resorts. In a destination where your days are full of trekking to waterfalls, embarking on sunset surfing excursions, and gawking at active volcanoes, we feel the place you rest your head should be the last of your worries.
