We've fallen in love with Costa Rica this year, and we can't wait to share it with you!

Discover Costa Rica

Welcome to Central America’s best-kept secret, a paradisiacal haven of enchanting panoramic views, exclusivity and seclusion. With its rich biodiversity and culture, there is no shortage of things to do in Costa Rica.

 A trip here highlights the glorious beauty that nature holds, both luscious and rugged – you can spend your days discovering the awe-inspiring Arenal Volcano and its lava fields, venturing into the beautiful rainforests, or indulging in life-changing wellness journeys. Costa Rica's jungles inhabit some 850 species of bird, sloths and more, with many resorts offering the unmissable chance to sight these fascinating creatures for yourself. Imagine the unique and unforgettable stories about your adventures in Costa Rica that you’ll bring home to share with your family and friends. 

NAYARA SPRINGS

For the love-struck couple…

 Prepare to enter heaven on earth, a haven that you will never want to leave! Only accessible via a 250-foot bridge suspended over the canopy of the rainforest, Nayara Springs is cut off from the rest of the world – the epitome of pure bliss and luxury. Couples will love the fabulous Spring Villas, their private plunge pools, expansive gardens and dual rain showers; making for unbeatably romantic Costa Rica honeymoons.

 Located within the Arenal Volcano National Park, Nayara Springs shows the kaleidoscopic array of things to do in Costa Rica, from exploring the Lava Fields of the Arenal Volcano and visiting the Ecotermales Hot Springs to thrilling ATV tours and water rafting. Imagine sharing delicious spa treatments such as chocolate massages and body scrubs with your partner and reaching a state of zen and balance together. This alluring adult-only hideaway is truly the height of grandeur.

OXYGEN JUNGLE VILLAS

For the eco-conscious...

Nestled within the leafy jungle of the southwest, the Oxygen Jungle Villas are the epitome of opulence, relaxation, and good vibes. Imagine waking up in your own stunning all-glass jungle or ocean villa, and taking in sublime views of all that Costa Rica has to offer. The villas are chic and sumptuous, with fabulous king-sized beds and dazzling infinity pools – serene, and perfect for your Costa Rica honeymoon.

The coastal location of the Oxygen Jungle Villas makes for an array of water-based activities and excursions, from whale and dolphin tours to snorkelling and white-water rafting. Alternatively, discover the beautiful inland from above on an exciting zip lining tour – perfect for a Costa Rica family holiday. Immerse yourself in the fabulous natural beauty of Costa Rica at this incomparable resort! 

CALA LUNA BOUTIQUE HOTEL AND VILLAS

For lovers of both coast and inland…

Hidden amongst luscious greenery and only a stone’s throw from the beaches of Playa Langosta and Tamarindo, Cala Luna is a paradisiacal destination for a luxury holiday in Costa Rica. The name translates to ‘Cove of the Moon’, a fitting name for the magical boutique location. You could be dining beneath clear, starlit skies, guarded by swaying palms and flickering lanterns, and indulging in organic, sustainable and local foods that highlight Costa Rica’s biodiversity.

Cala Luna’s stunning Beach Houses allow you to roll straight from bed onto the beach. Spend your mornings on volcano adventures and try horseback riding or rappelling, and unwind at the opulent spa in the afternoon - perhaps with the Cala Luna treatment with coffee and oil essential vanilla. 

PACUARE LODGE

For families and thrill-seekers…

Make your Central America holiday enviable with an exclusive and immersive experience at the Pacuare Lodge in the heart of the alluring Costa Rican jungle. This destination is the crème de la crème when it comes to Costa Rica luxury holidays, and offers both thrilling escapades and euphoric rejuvenation. Pacuare Lodge truly encompasses the biodiversity of Costa Rica, with gorgeous bungalows constructed from sustainably sourced wood that reflect their forested surroundings.

The lodge is quintessential for active travellers looking for outdoor adventures and Costa Rica family holidays. Wake up after sunrise and enjoy hiking, climbing and refreshing water sports, or visit the Jawa Juu Spa to receive enrapturing healing massages and allow the guidance of ancestral heritage to bring you balance.

TABACON THERMAL RESORT AND SPA

For those searching for spiritual healing…

Costa Rica is one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world, and this gloriously natural hideaway shows why. Unique and magical, the Tabacon Thermal Resort and Spa is home to the largest network of natural flowing hot springs, and their healing properties are used to help the wellness of guests. The breathtaking spa uses a blend of natural rainforest elements to conjure treatments for everyone, from individuals and lovestruck couples to those looking for luxury family holidays.

The resort ensures that each guest is treated like royalty, with treatments tailored to their individual requirements. Just picture yourself wrapped in luscious pineapple and aloe, completely tranquil – your body is a temple, and pampering is exactly what it deserves. Nestled within a 900-acre tropical reserve at the base of the Arenal Volcano, a stay at the Tabacon Resort and Spa is an unmissable opportunity for you and your loved one to live with nature.

BEST TIMES TO TRAVEL TO COSTA RICA

The best time to take your dream trip to Costa Rica is between December and April – this is the height of the dry season, boasting spectacular sunny days with minimal rainfall. Visit between May and July if you want to be further lulled into bliss with the soothing sound of rain accompanying your massages, but avoid months between August and November, since Costa Rica experiences hurricanes during this period!
