Costa Rica Rules!

We’re delighted and hugely proud to announce a new addition! Over the past few months we’ve been beavering away behind the scenes and now we’re ready to unveil the fruit of our labours:

You may recall that this time last year I was telling you that both Guy and Paul had recently been to Costa Rica and were both singing its praises: refresh your memory with a glance at the blog: Costa-rica-excited

I have to say this left the rest of us feeling thoroughly envious, and over the next few months we all decided that this diminutive country is worthy of greater attention. Why? What had caught our collective imagination? Though small in size, Costa Rica is huge in almost every other way; in the diversity of habitats, its prolific wildlife, stunning scenery from mountain to coast, adventures a-plenty, the warm Tico hospitality, a refreshingly enlightened approach to eco-tourism, and the full gamut of accommodation from world-class luxury resorts to rustic, family-owned lodges. Whether you want to watch wildlife, hike rainforest trails, whizz down a zipline, stroll among orchids, taste coffee and chocolate, soak in thermal springs or laze on an idyllic beach, Costa Rica has it all. We’ve tried to summarise the many aspects of its appeal here.

As we pondered this we came to the realisation that this added up to more than enough material for a whole new website. And so it has transpired.

What’s more, from April this year British Airways will be flying direct to Juan Santamaria Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, twice a week in the summer and three times in winter. This means that in less than 11 hours of departing these shores you can be enjoying the sunshine, beaches, flora and fauna of Costa Rica.


So now we’re ALL very excited and we’re sure you will be too. Please take a look at our shiny new website, we’re sure you’ll feel inspired and, yes, excited! We’ve designed it to be clear and, we trust, easy to use, full of information but not off-putting-ly so, and with lots of photos that will, I warn you, make you want to be there. Indeed, both Guy and Paul have already booked return visits this year.

I should add that the website is very new and we cannot promise that it’s entirely typo or glitch free, but its heart is certainly in the right place. We’ll be working on it over the next few weeks and months, adding more holiday ideas, more accommodation, more experiences and more gorgeous photos, so the website will get better and better.

We’re all looking forward to spreading the word about this wonderful, multi-faceted destination and planning some fantastic Costa Rica holidays for you in 2016 and beyond.


As they say in Costa Rica, Pura Vida! Life is good!
