Costa Rica itineraries

Costa Rica has a number of micro-climates that mean that different parts of the country are better visited at different times of year. Our itineraries are designed with these regional differences in mind. During the European summer (July – August), the weather is likely to be best on the east (Caribbean) coast so our itineraries will usually finish up on this coast for some beach time. Also at this time turtles are expected along this coast and it is possible to see them come ashore to lay their eggs in Tortuguero, so this will also usually be included.

At Christmas and Easter, the weather is likely to be better over on the Pacific coast so we would usually concentrate the itinerary on the centre and west of the country to make the most of the sunshine.

In all cases the exact itinerary will be tailored to your family; those with older children may want plenty of activities (white water rafting, zip-lining and so on) whereas those with younger children may want to spend longer at the beach and have a slower pace.
