Costa Rica Safari Holidays

With a combination of volcanoes, cloud forests and national parks Costa Rica makes up 6% of the world’s biodiversity.

About Costa Rican safaris

Tortuguero National Park, known as “Little Amazon” is unmissable due to its tropical rainforest, rivers, canals and lagoons.  The majority of the exploration is done by boat, howver there are also hikes to be done as the landscape is made up of both marine and land ecosystems. 
The park is a hugely important conservation area, which was initially created to protect the Green turtle as the area is perfect for them to lay their eggs.  Many of the turtles here are endangered.  If you are fortunate you may see leatherbacks, olive ridleys, green turtles, loggerheads and hawksbills. 

Aside from turtles you can hope to see jaguars, sloths, monkeys, bats and armadillo and hundreds of birds. Over 150 reptiles and amphibians also thrive here, these include the tree frogs and dart frogs seen alongside snakes, caiman, lizards and iguanas.

Our Favourite Safari Hotels

Where to stay on Safari in Costa Rica

Many of the lodges are within the rainforest, making the experience truly special.  The lodges are eco-friendly, colourful and very comfortable.  After a day travelling into the rainforest treat yourself to a swim in the hotel pools or a trip to their spas.
