In each destination, we’ve chosen a local project to support through ad-hoc fundraising and giving you the opportunity to make a small donation when you book your trip with us.

In Costa Rica, we’re very proud to recommend the Tree of Life Wildlife Rescue Center, which provides a safe haven for animals in need of refuge. This might be due to loss of habitat, injury in the wild or by humans, such as victims of the pet trade or from hunting.

Many of the animals are nursed back to health and released into the wild again. Those that are permanent residents are provided with the most natural habitat possible.

“I’ve visited Costa Rica a few times and it has never let me down. It’s packed with adventure; from volcanoes to cloudforests. Plus, being wildlife-mad, it’s perfect for me. I love its diversity and impressive conservation efforts.”
