The destination
Wedged into the heart of Central America, Costa Rica is rife with unforgettable experiences, including the cultural highlights of the capital, San Jose; getting to know the meaning of the country’s mantra of ‘pura vida’; and, most notably, its landscapes, which include wildlife-filled forests, simmering volcanoes, rolling surf and misty mountains. And because a quarter of the country is protected, travellers can expect some of the planet’s most intimate and unspoilt encounters with nature.
