Latin America has always been on my bucket list, and being an animal lover Costa Rica was the perfect destination! I spent two weeks travelling through Costa Rica and a week in Panama exploring all the major highlights and points of cultural interest. I made sure I visited in the low rainy season to get a better chance of seeing the massive Green Back sea turtles that nest on the beaches of Tortuguero every year and I was really lucky to see two nests being made. A truly magical and humbling experience!
Having travelled South and North America extensively – I cannot wait for my Central America trip to Costa Rica in May for my honeymoon! Being a wildlife lover and adventurer, I know this is going to be a fabulous once in a life time trip. I am super excited to be trekking around the infamous Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna and exploring the jungle in Tortuguero. My colleagues will tell you I am big on organising and planning, so I pretty much know everything when it comes to Costa Rica!
I used to work as a Tour Leader in Central America regularly passing through Costa Rica, it’s my favourite country in terms of flora and fauna. Despite its tiny size there is so much biodiversity and I have been lucky enough to see toucans, many different types of monkeys, red eyed tree frogs and the resplendent quetzal to name a few. I also fell in love with the curiously cute three toed sloth with its permanent smile!
