Top Highlights

In the Air

With almost 900 species - a higher number than all North America – Costa Rica really is a bird-watcher’s paradise, with an abundance of hummingbirds, toucans, kingfishers, and trogons. The iconic resplendent quetzal can be found in the higher elevations of Monteverde and the Cordillera de Talamanca and catching sight of this shimmering beauty is a true a Costa Rica travel highlight.

On the Land

From multi-day hikes through remote rainforest to rambles around national park trails, Costa Rica offers heavenly hiking experiences. By going along on a hike to get in touch with nature, you’ll discover impressive trails in the mountains and national parks, which will invite you to step into the beautiful remote areas of the country and appreciate majestic rivers and waterfalls.

In The Sea

In its vast territorial waters, Costa Rica protects coral reefs, beds of seagrass, a thermal dome, an oceanic trench more than 4,000 meters deep and an underwater mountain range more massive than the Talamanca, Guanacaste and Central Volcanic ranges combined. This makes diving a real highlight here. With two coasts offering hugely varied marine life, Costa Rica has something for every diver.
