From rustic resorts to eco-friendly hotels, Costa Rica is a destination that inspires in the luxury travel sphere. Stay in rainforest lodges overlooking the misty jungle or bask in the sunshine of the Caribbean or Pacific coasts, while your every need is looked after.

Costa Rica was once the sole preserve of adventure travellers and backpackers, searching for laidback vibes, pristine rainforest and glorious beaches. Things have changed, as Costa Rica has developed into one of the safest and most affluent nations in Latin America. What hasn’t changed are the ideals that brought those first travellers to the country.

Our travel specialists will create your dream luxury Costa Rica holiday. We have personally either stayed at or visited all the hotels and lodges we sell in Costa Rica. We can tailor-make an itinerary to suit you, blending refined, elegant and unique accommodation with action, adventure and nature.

Luxury Things to Do in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is still home to pristine rainforest, glorious beaches and laidback vibes, but it also has an thriving luxury holiday market. With a focus on sustainability and eco-friendly designs, Costa Rica’s high-end hotels and luxury resorts offer supreme comfort and are often found in breathtaking locations, with views of the crashing Pacific Ocean or the steaming caldera of a volcano surrounded by dense jungle.

Papagayo is a small peninsula on the Pacific coast, not far from the Guanacaste capital of Liberia. The peninsula has become the domain of the rich, and the number of high-end holiday resorts and luxury hotels increases each and every year, as word of Costa Rica spreads across the luxury travel world. The peninsula is beautiful, but even if you are staying at an isolated resort with all the furnishings of luxury, you’re never far from the wild, raw scenery that Costa Rica is so famed for.

Also located on the coastline of Guanacaste province, the town of Tamarindo was once a run-down backpacker destination that’s turned itself into a luxury travel retreat. Flanked by pristine beaches and never too far from rustic beachside villages and secluded bays, Tamarindo offers luxury and a retreat from the rest of the world.

If you’re looking for a luxury getaway in more unique surroundings, then head inland and stay at one of the many resorts overlooking the slopes of the immense Arenal Volcano. This is Costa Rica’s most famous volcano, so it’s no surprise that high-end hotels were quick to move in here. It’s even less of a surprise when you consider the massive amounts of geothermal energy below the ground, which have created a swathe of natural springs across the region.

Relax in thermal baths while you spend the night in luxurious surroundings with the sounds of the rainforest all around you. You might be enjoying a luxury Costa Rica holiday, but if you’re looking for adventure, then you can always trek out into the shadow of the volcano on an intrepid journey into the wild.

Our Costa Rica specialists can help to tailor-make the perfect luxury Costa Rica holiday for you. Whether you want a romantic getaway with your loved one or a high-end holiday for the whole family, we know the best resorts and most incredible luxury experiences in Costa Rica.
