Colours of Costa Rica

Colours of Costa Rica

Dear Travellers, 

If you are passionate about sustainable tourism, we hope you’ll join us in Costa Rica this October.

As the birthplace of ecotourism, Costa Rica is one of the world’s finest nature and wildlife destinations. Here, biodiversity is bursting at the seams, with over 500,000 species of flora and fauna existing in one small country. The Costa Rican government have been promoting respectful tourism since the 1980s, and we plan to uphold these values as we explore the country’s incredible mangroves, rainforests, volcanic highlands and spectacular cloud forests.

One thing I always remember about Costa Rica is the colours, which are more vibrant and intense than anywhere else I have ever been. The trees appear more green (the greenest I have ever seen), the wildlife is brighter, and even the browns of the jungle are rich and deep. It is one of nature’s most colourful destinations, and wildlife is everywhere you look.

You will already know iconic species such as the sloth and toucan, but there is so much more to Costa Rica than first meets the eye. The incredible variety of exotic plants and animals you will see in a single day is jaw-dropping; even the insects are mesmerising!

If you are looking for nature, this is where to find it. Stunning biodiversity, vast protected conservation areas and warm tropical weather await you in Costa Rica. For more information, please scroll down or click HERE.

Costa Rica Wildlife Safari

25 October – 10 November 2023
17-Day Accommodated Tour



Costa Rica’s name comes from the Spanish language, meaning ‘rich coast’, as early European explorers believed the mountains of Costa Rica to be filled with gold. Although they were wrong about the gold, Costa Rica is the ‘rich coast’ regarding flora, fauna and biodiversity. It may be a small country, but it is enormous on nature, natural history and environmental investment. A true paradise for lovers of the natural world! It has extraordinary biodiversity, with over 500,000 species, so it is little wonder that it is known as the birthplace of ecotourism.
