Experience the Caribbean as it was meant to be.br/>
Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is as diverse in landscape as it is in culture. Tropical aromas and reggae music fill the narrow streets of the tiny villages and hamlets where the fusion cuisine offers flavors of Mexican, Italian and Chinese. Explore jungle habitats where howler monkeys rule, swim crystalline waters teaming with colorful sea life, or just relax on the lovely white sand beaches. In the evenings, unwind in tranquil and sophisticated accommodations.br/>
Explore the winding Tortuguero canals in search of the many exotic birds and turtles. Visit the Sloth Sanctuary in Aviarios and take a canoe ride through the bayous of the Estrella River Delta for a chance to see them. If you don’t encounter them there, simply head to the learning center where you can interact with these wondrous and very adorable creatures in person. Make your way to the Parque Nacional Cahuita, which boasts the largest system of coral reefs in Costa Rica, and encounter vibrant tropical fish and harmless reef sharks and sting rays. It’s sure to be an experience you’ll never forget.br/>
