Costa Rica’s thoughtful approach to nature and wildlife has served as the world model for ecotourism for decades. Tropical rainforests pulsate with wildlife, unblemished remote beaches bask in the sun's glow, a freshly made cup of the local coffee beans tastes absolutely unforgettable. Costa Rica is pura vida, the one and only 'pure life.'
Jungle, volcanoes, white-sand beaches—see it all up-close, as you zip line over jungle canyons, or ride horses through cloud forests to secluded waterfalls. Soak in private thermo-mineral springs near our eco-lodges, and tube past rock-walled canyons on wild white-water rivers. And of course, take the opportunity to sip sunset cocktails in beachside luxury and on private jungle decks. Costa Rica is the adventure you judge all others by.
A luxurious couples getaway, a friend reunion, a family-fun adventure. Our Costa Rican adventure can accommodate all kinds of travelers.
The best time to visit is December thru April when the dry season gives way to sun-kissed beaches and warm weather. Many hotels shut down completely in the rainy season, August thru October.

Bungalows on tropical mountainsides, spa hotels looking up to volcanoes, beachfront bungalows on the edge of jungle—stay in comfort and true luxury, with Costa Rica’s wild side just outside the door.
You can’t get much closer to an active volcano than at our luxury resort outside La Fortuna. All of the roomy suites have wide windows and private decks to look out over the green rainforest rising before you to the misty, purplish peak of Arenal.
This luxury bungalow resort spreads along a lush mountainscape on a 570-acre ranch. Jungle trails, three waterfalls and endless opportunities to spot toucans, quetzals, sloths and monkeys.
Papagayo Peninsula is one of Costa Rica’s most exclusive spots, and our hotel here feels more like checking into a private beach house. Palm trees press up onto the balcony of your room. When not relaxing on the nearby beach, lit by the golden sun, you can swing in a hammock or relax by the pool.
