If you could draw up an ideal holiday destination, then Costa Rica could be it. The 'Rich Coast' has earned its name and stands apart from its Central American neighbours on the cutting edge of so many trends like surfing, farm-to-table restaurants and green tourism. It's also one of the world's most bio-diverse countries and while there is no standing army you almost always feel safe. Great beaches, simmering volcanoes, lush rainforest . . . you'll find it all on this wonderful 15 day tour.
Day 1

The first part of the trail is a steep hill through the secondary jungle before reaching the plateau where the views are awesome.

On the island you can see the stone spheres made by the first civilizations that inhabited the area. Right in front of the ranger station, there is a beach where you can relax.
