Luxury city breaks in Costa Rica
The finest building in San José, the neoclassical 19th-century National Theatre, celebrates Costa Rica’s coffee and banana legacy in an ornate ceiling mural. After browsing the capital’s choice mall boutiques, wander the vibrant old Central Market whose food stalls whip up refreshing tropical fruit smoothies. Sample savoury jerk chicken in Puerto Limón where the Caribbean vibe is more reggae than ranch.
Luxury beach holidays in Costa Rica
The Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific’s Guanacaste province is chock-a-block with serene playas and a new surf scene. Enjoy a boutique spa treatment with Costa Rican ginger and honey after visiting the beaches and rainforests of Manuel Antonio National Park. Further south on the Osa Peninsula, luxury eco-lodges are perched high up in the trees and jaguars roam the Corcovado National Park. Coconut palm-lined beaches, coral reefs and fine diving tempt you to the remote Cahuita National Park at the far southern Caribbean tip. Cruise the tranquil canals and lagoons of Tortuguero National Park on the north Caribbean coast and learn how to help to save endangered leatherback turtles.
Luxury holidays in the Costa Rican countryside
Just north of San José, peek into Poás crater for a spooky steam vent show. At night, witness Arenal volcano’s dazzling fireworks display. Adventure types hurl through the jungle canopy on ziplines and raft the roiling whitewater of the rivers Pacuare and Reventazón. During a luxury massage in the jungle, your Costa Rican neighbours will be butterflies, toucans, sloths and white-headed capuchin monkeys.
Book your luxury Costa Rica holiday with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and explore the immaculate beaches and dense tropical forests of this ecologically rich country.
