Everyday birds like toucans can make
visitors gape in awe.

On an iCare journey to Costa Rica, explore a rainforest from hanging bridges suspended above the trees. Afterwards, enjoy a breathtaking view of an active volcano from your hotel. In Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast, explore wildlife-rich canals by boat and the nesting sites of one of the world’s most endangered species, the Atlantic green sea turtle.

Experience one of the richest diversities of flora and fauna on earth.

Costa Rica is a pleasure to explore, even in the wet season where the sound of afternoon rains on jungle leaves adds just one more layer authenticity to the experience. There is something for everyone–hiking, lounging on the beach, watching lava-oozing volcanoes, bird watching, great spas, great food, rafting, mountain biking, fishing …and the list goes on. The friendly local people (Ticos) complement the natural beauty of the country. They make guests feel welcome.

Whether you are a mature couple, a family with children, a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or an adventure seeker, iCare will realize your dream vacation in this tropical paradise.
