Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a paradise for nature lovers, and its size belies the amazing variety of ecosystems found within its borders. There are tropical beaches, humid rains-forests, fiery volcanic peaks, steaming hot springs and mossy cloud forests which are home to a staggering array of flora and fauna. Adventurous travelers will also love the range of activities on offer; with rafting, trekking, canopy tours, horseback riding and mountain biking available countrywide from the Pacific coast to the Caribbean.

At just a few degrees north of the equator, there’s little seasonality in temperatures so any differences are due to specific locations and altitude. San Jose in the highlands is chilly at night; the Pacific & Caribbean Coasts are hot at 28°c peaking at the end of the dry season during Mar-Apr. The wet (or ‘green’) season runs from May-Nov, but with Costa Rica’s blanket of rain-forest, pretty much the whole country can be wet at any time of year.

Fantastic Birthday Surprise in Dubai

Thank you Nick and all the rest of the team at Gazelle for a fantastic 50th birthday surprise for Sarah in Dubai. An excellent hotel with great service and you had clearly told them to look after us, which was very special.

Amazing experience in the Golden Triangle

We did not think you could match it but you did it again and more! 25th wedding anniversary this time and it was an amazing experience in the Golden Triangle.
