Costa Rica - the Garden of Eden!

This week on the Travel Show we visit Costa Rica – the Garden of Eden! It’s a land of shimmering ocean sunsets and mysterious cloud forests - with lush green vegetation as backdrop to colourful birds and iridescent butterflies. The landscape is graced with majestic volcanoes. Magnificent waterfalls cascade beside steaming hot springs - and exotic wildlife is everywhere. This country's natural riches enable visitors to enjoy almost every kind of outdoor activity you can imagine, and its towns and villages offer endless cultural and historical treasures.

The name “Costa Rica” means "the rich coast." The first word, Costa or "coast", attests to this country's position in Central America, bordered by two long, sinuous coasts with kilometres of idyllic beaches.

And the land that lies between these coasts can only be described as "rich". Costa Rica is the natural habitat for many species of flora and fauna found in both the northern and southern continents. The microclimates of its mountains and rivers, valleys and plains, and tropical forests allow an abundant plant and animal life to flourish. Costa Rica's natural beauty is mesmerizing. However, its culture and people are just as fascinating and the warm and welcoming Ticos have contributed greatly to Latin American society.

Nolitours fly direct to Costa Rica this winter and feature resorts in San Jose and along the gorgeous Pacific coast. Nolitours also provide car rental and a range of excursions - so you have lots of opportunity to explore. Visit volcanic craters and hot springs, brave a sky walk high in the forest canopy, go on a crocodile and bird watching adventure or discover wildlife in Manuel Antonio National Park.

Nolitours offer you the chance to really get to know this beautiful country on a fully escorted 7 night coach tour. A great introduction to the people, natural beauty and wildlife of Costa Rica, your tour also has the option for adventures such as horseback riding, hiking and white water rafting.

Or you can enjoy a spectacular tall ship cruise experience with Nolitours and Star Clippers. Travel on a tall ship with polished brass, expansive teak decks, spacious accommodations - not to mention two swimming pools. You can chose between itineraries that visit Costa Rica alone or that include visits to neighbouring Panama or Nicaragua.
