Cherish the laid-back rhythm of ‘Pura Vida’ in Costa Rica
If you aspire to an easy-going life, then Costa Rica could be just the place for you to explore. Costa Ricans, Ticos, cherish the laid-back rhythm of ‘Pura Vida’ (pure life) in their little slice of paradise and you will too. So why not join our small group tour and ‘follow the beat’ as we ramble through Central America’s hot spot of biodiversity.
Tropical rainforests and lazy beaches, rugged mountains and volcanic peaks, lush valleys and wandering wetlands – yes, Costa Rica, known worldwide for its natural beauty, has it all. Add in more than 13,000 bird, animal and plant species and the colourful country will quickly invade your senses.
If you have a penchant for bird watching, our Costa Rica tour is indeed, paradise!
Hummingbirds – by the hundreds, toucans, trogons and tanagers; kingfishers, creepers and quetzals; aracari, antbirds and owls; you’ll find birds in every colour of the rainbow, more than eight hundred species of them. And we’ve scoped out some of the best lodges for seeing and photographing these beauties at close quarters. The photo-friendly set-ups are a photographer’s dream-come-true!
You’ll love the diversity of landscapes we encounter on our rambles – highlands, lowlands, riverbanks, ravines, forests and farms. Believe us – with all it has to offer, from its flashy Resplendent Quetzal to its fresh-from-the-roaster first-class coffee, Costa Rica and its Pura Vida will charm you through and through.

What Our Tourists Have To Say.
Costa Rica was our 5th trip with Mirrabac, so we knew to expect something special. We were overjoyed with the photographic opportunities presented in the meticulously planned itinerary, this was a birders, wildlife, and plant lovers heaven!
Our local driver was knowledgeable and caring, and quickly became part of our fun team. The scenery was spectacular as we drove high up mountains, down into valleys, and out to each coast. Over 25% of the country is nature reserve. We enjoyed fresh local produce at every meal with lots of different quenching fresh fruit juices. Everything exceeded expectations, especially the hummingbird images we were able to capture at most of the lodges.
