Stay: Pacuare Lodge (2 nights)
One of Costa Rica's most under-appreciated attractions, the Caribbean Coast is truly wonderful, with its bath-warm waters, radiant sunshine, rustling palms, piquant food, unique Afro-Caribbean culture, and pristine rainforest. Super laid-back, temperate, and teeming with wildlife, the Talamanca Mountains' Caribbean slopes are home to several rare, endangered and reclusive mammals like pumas, ocelots and the tayra; while birds, reptiles and amphibians seen nowhere else thrive in the Tortuguero National Park – famed for its nesting sea turtles – remote, accessible only by boat or plane… and totally worth the journey.
Adventure rules this part of Costa Rica: and at this National Geographic ‘Unique Lodge of the World’, the excitement begins even before you get there!
