COSTA RICA TOURING
Rainforests shrouded in a lingering mist, fiery volcanos that erupt on a daily basis, exotic wildlife gliding, prowling and burrowing all around you, the glory of nature dominates the spectacular Central American country of Costa Rica.
One of the world’s most bio-diverse nations, Costa Rica’s unique characteristics allow nature to thrive all around you, making a Costa Rica holiday ideal for those with a keen interest in wildlife, geology and eco-tourism.
Join a Travelbag Costa Rica tour and you can admire dramatic landscapes that literally explode, birds that dazzle with their exotic plumage and forests that hide under a blanket of cloud....
A nation positively resplendent with national parks, a Travelbag Costa Rica tour will take you into the heart of these stunning pockets, many of which are blissfully tucked away into the distant corners of the country.
Trek into the virgin forests of Corcovado to spot jaguars stalking through the jungle, wander beneath the foggy mask of the mysterious Monteverde Cloud Forest, keep an eye out for the colourful Macaw and Quetzal as they take flight amongst the canopies of San Gerardo de Dota and watch silently as the endangered green turtle comes ashore at Tortuguero to lay the eggs of its young.
An excellent holiday for those with a keen sense of adventure, hike to the top of Poas Volcano to view the turquoise waters that have formed in the craters of Lake Caliente (the ‘hot lagoon’) and Lake Botos, and watch in awe as the active Arenal Volcano spews lava in the night sky during one of its many eruptions.
Indeed, Costa Rica packs a lot into a relatively small space, the variety of eco-systems giving it an identity unlike any other in the world.
Say ‘hola’ to the ‘Ticos’ in 2016 with an unforgettable journey into the unique world of Costa Rica.
