Costa Rica is the definitive tropical paradise – a small country that’s bursting with wildlife, adventure and luxury. Gaze up in awe as Arenal Volcano puts on nature’s own firework display. Or be mesmerised as hummingbirds flit by the balcony of your jungle retreat. And, with miles of pristine coastline, you’re never far from world-class diving, surfing and sunbathing.  

A natural paradise of emerald cloud forest and golden beaches, dramatic volcanoes and divine cuisine.  


Capital city: San José.

Currency: Colón (in 500, 1000, 5000 and 10000 notes).

Cuisine: Sensationally soulful – black beans, rice, chicken, tortillas, pork chops and seafood are just some of the staples.

Tipping etiquette: Tipping is appreciated. 10 % is the norm.

Saying hello: Costa Ricans shake hands when saying hello or goodbye: use “hola” and “adios”.


Costa Rica is one of the world’s most popular destinations and is well equipped for year-round visitors. In the dry season – roughly mid-November to April – you’ll usually find plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. Although it’s called the wet season, May to mid-November can be a great time to visit with fresh, sunny mornings and some dramatic downpours in the afternoons. During the months of November, April and May, the country is at its lushest and can be relatively quiet.

Start your day in true Costa Rican style with a cup of local coffee and a plate of tropical fruit, accompanied by idyllic views.
