San Jose

Emerging as the vibrant heart of Costa Rica, San Jose mesmerises its visitors with a unique blend of old-world charm complemented by steadfast urbanisation. You will find grand colonial-era squares and museums standing alongside hipster coffee shops and edgy art galleries.


Venture a little inland and you transcend to a different world altogether in Monteverde. Home to the famed Cloud Forest Reserve, the region enthrals with its rich biodiversity, including rare species like the quetzal bird and over 2,000 types of orchids.

Manuel Antonio

Boasting a stunning national park set within a beautiful seaside town, Manuel Antonio is the place to be. Whether it is exploring the rainforest meeting playful capuchin monkeys, or relaxing on the warm sand, evenings should always be reserved for admiring the sunset.


Eastward, along the Caribbean coast, Tortuguero offers a serene haven. The tranquil waters of Tortuguero National Park, where see turtles nest by the beach, become a delightful spectacle to behold.

La Fortuna

Adventure enthusiasts should head towards La Fortuna, the home of the active Arenal volcano. Hot springs, waterfalls, and forest treks await you in this vibrant region. Don't forget to savour the arresting view of the volcano, best observed during sunrise or sunset.

When to Visit

Costa Rica is a year-round destination with a tropical climate, however, it does have a dry season from mid-December to April, which offers warm, sunny days and is considered the best time to visit. However, travelling to Costa Rica between May and November, also known as the 'green season', can be a great way to experience fewer crowds, greener landscapes, and catch sight of various fauna in their natural habitat. While you can expect short showers, they are typically followed by sunshine, and the slightly cooler temperatures can make outdoor activities more comfortable.
