Central Costa Rica

The city of San José is home to Juan Santamaria, Costa Rica’s primary international airport and the starting point of any tour of the country. From Juan Santamaria it is a half hour’s drive to the busy city centre, where visitors will find a great choice of hotels, restaurants, and nightlife.

Wonderful wildlife in Costa Rica

The holiday was wonderful. [We] cannot praise the organisation and smooth-running of the itinerary enough.
