Wildlife vacations in Costa Rica

Plenty of countries have astounding wildlife, but few offer so many ecosystems in such a tiny space – from mist-shrouded cloud forest to dense lowland jungle, sweltering mangrove swamps and wild, beach-dotted coastlines. Sightings are superb here as there is simply nowhere for the creatures to run. Turtles, quetzals, howler monkeys, macaws, sloths, caiman, otters, dolphins… take your pick of iconic species on our wildlife vacations in Costa Rica – and don’t forget your binoculars!
