When we planned our family trip to Costa Rica, one key question was ‘where will we have the best chance of seeing whales?’ Tribes’ Alex Neaves recommended the Osa Peninsula, a spectacular region in the south west of the country, combining rainforest with coast - which turned out to be a great suggestion! We chose to spend five nights towards the end of our holiday at Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge on the Osa Peninsula.
Magic in the moonlight
Lit by the full moon the beach had an eerie beauty, the waves glinting in the moonlight, the sand with a silvery tone.
From bush to bean to cup
If you’re a coffee lover, Costa Rica is the perfect place to go! From tiny bakeries to swish restaurants, you’re likely to be served an excellent brew, in a country where that little bean has been a key part of life and the country's economy since the 18th century.
Off to market
There is something fascinating about a market. And when that market is in a foreign country, the attraction is even stronger.
The lure of fishing
Whether you enjoy fly fishing in slow-moving rivers, wading up to your chest in a tranquil lake or want to experience the thrill of the chase with deep-sea fishing, there’s no need to forego your favourite pastime while on holiday.
On the right tracks
There can be a romance in rail travel in foreign countries that’s hard to find in the 11. 05am from Ipswich to Liverpool Street.
Beneath the surface
You don’t need access to an ocean to be able to enjoy fabulous underwater landscapes and ‘wildlife’; you can discover a whole new world beneath the surface even in the middle of Africa or a land-locked part of Brazil.
