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.

Peru’s Sacred Valley, Walking the Inca Trail.
It’s a long walk from the Sacred Valley of the Incas to the ancient citadel at Machu Picchu. This famous Inca Trail takes you high above the Urubamba River into the mountains where the air is clear and fresh, though a little thin! And if the altitude doesn’t take your breath away the views certainly will, as you look out from trails with evocative names like Dead Woman’s Pass to the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes.
