Costa Rica covers only 0.3% of the planet’s surface but is filled with more than 5% of all lifeforms on earth, making it one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. The landscape overflows with tropical forests, volcanoes, and white sand beaches. During this six-night vacation, you’ll stay in two of the country’s protected wilderness areas: Manuel Antonio National Park and the Central Highlands. Guided excursions are included, but you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the scenery on your own.
Si Como No Resort & Spa is perched on a hillside minutes from Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the most visited spots in Costa Rica. The resort boasts spectacular ocean views and guest rooms set smack dab amid the jungle scenery. You’ll find beaches and coral reefs ideal for swimming and snorkeling, and rainforest trails frequented by sloths, toucans, and squirrel monkeys. For its eco-friendly efforts, the hotel has earned “5 leaves” from the CST Sustainable Tourism program.
Set on a hillside farm that once belonged to a former Costa Rican president, Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel & Nature Reserve occupies a scenic location in the country’s central highlands. The property features a network of cloud forest walking trails, a dairy farm where you can help milk cows, and gardens and greenhouses that supply the herbs and produce used at the resort’s restaurant and spa. While you’re here, you’ll stay in a ranch-like casita equipped with a fireplace and back patio overlooking the countryside.
