Award-winning sustainable holidays away from the crowds

The soothing comforts of premium ecolodges; the personal service of specialist private guides; time aplenty to immerse yourself in beautifully unspoilt landscapes, away from the crowds...

Rainforest retreat, Osa Peninsula

Rainforest retreat, Osa Peninsula
Costa Rica is famed for its premium ecolodges. Some are more premium and more eco than others, so we choose our favourites carefully. We've visited them all, tested the pillows and tasted the food.

Rainforest retreat, Osa Peninsula
There's nothing like the soothing comforts of a premium ecolodge to relax after a busy day of walking in the forests and watching the wildlife. Luxury is never just for show, as one client found out...

Rainforest retreat, Osa Peninsula
"Before going we thought the idea of a plunge pool was just daft, showy luxury. But in the heat and humidity, we really appreciated having them!" said one recent, refreshed, Pura Aventura guest.

3 of 20

Hot tub with a view, Central Valley
Throughout Costa Rica, moments of downtime centre around sumptuous views - think hammocks overlooking the ocean, cabin terraces deep in cloud forest, or this hot tub high above the Central Valley.

4 of 20

Artisan coffee, Central Valley
That hot tub is actually part of a luxury inn on a working coffee estate. Tracing craft coffee back to its scenic source is one of the best ways we know to immerse you in local culture and ways of life.

5 of 20

Coffee hills, Turrialba
Coffee cultivation has been part of the fabric of the Central Valley for over a century. Spending the day meeting harvesters in the hills and tasting different bean varieties is a very different kind of luxury.

6 of 20

Organic cacao farm, Turrialba
It's the same at Ann-Elin and Aldo's beautiful cacao farm on the sunny slopes of Turrialba Volcano. Visits are relaxed, the scenery stunning, the chocolate delicious and your hosts so very friendly.

7 of 20

Rafting the rapids, Pejibaye River
Just because it's luxurious doesn't mean you can't have some real fun. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, rafting is a great way to get you giggling, with your own private team to look after you.

8 of 20

Great Green macaws, Southern Caribbean
Then there's the wildlife, naturally... Ducking out of the way as a pair of rare Great Green macaws swoop and squak all around at a pioneering rewilding programme surely counts as a true luxury.

9 of 20

Sirena Ranger Station, Osa Peninsula
Sleeping in bunk-bedded dorms at this remote ranger station is not luxurious. But waking to one of the world's most melodious dawn choruses and seeing the jungle come alive all around certainly is.

10 of 20

Chestnut-mandibled toucan, Osa Peninsula
Where else might you see a toucan land in a tree as you go to brush your teeth? Or be woken up at 5am by the cacophanous calls of a troup of Howler monkeys, known locally as the 'Osa alarm clock'?

11 of 20

Guided beach hike, Osa Penisnula
The right company transforms a walk in the forest into an unforgettable wildlife experience. The luxury of specialist guides and conservationists gives the richest possible window into their wild world.

12 of 20

Gandoca-Manzanillo, Southern Caribbean
It's hard to find anything more 'luxurious' than the combination of Tino's encyclopedic knowledge and relaxed Caribbean character, and the wildlife treasures of this little-known coastal nature reserve.

13 of 20

Walking along the Pacific, Osa Peninsula
How about the luxury of time? Because we never rush, in between days watching monkeys in the national park and snorkelling off a tropical island, you have time to relax and wander the coastal path.

14 of 20

Gandoca beach, Southern Caribbean
You have time to kick off your boots on an empty beach, quench your thirst with a freshly-plucked coconut, sipped under a shady palm, and then go for a cooling paddle in the sea...

15 of 20

Wine by the fire, Chirripó
... Or to put your feet up by the fire in the chilly highlands, all the better for having first soaked away the day in the wood-fired hot tub as the river rushes by and birds fly home to roost overhead.

16 of 20

Sunset over the Pacific, Dominical
And there's time too to kick back and watch the sun sink away over the Pacific, cool drink in hand, toucans calling their tunes all around and a tasty dinner with a craft beer or two to look forward to.

17 of 20

Smiling Gustavo, Tenorio
Truth is, any visit to Costa Rica is a luxury. But, for us, the ultimate luxury is how we immerse you in its colourful culture and introduce you to the people who lend the country its rich Tico character.

18 of 20

Reggae bar, Southern Caribbean
The spontaneous fun of improvised reggae at a Caribbean beach bar, or the honour of being invited to join a family dinner at your guide's home, is the kind of luxury we most love to share.

19 of 20

Coffee harvest, Central Valley
So, if you're ready to start planning, we're ready to talk. Please look through our luxury Costa Rica holidays, see which one most takes your fancy and we'll send you over full details to take a look at.
