Costa Rica with A&KTiming is everything. And local knowledge. A returning guest recently told us how our guide gave her precise advice on when to head to her eco lodge deck to witness whales breaching off Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. Almost to the second, several humpbacks entered stage left for an afternoon matinee of joyous breaching and tail slapping.
Brilliant, passionate and highly qualified guides are, of course, de rigeur for A&K. Along with the best 4WD vehicles - crucial for accessing the superbly protected wilderness - and long established local contacts, we offer seamless travel through a country washed by both Pacific and Caribbean waters, and through its Central American neighbours.
Take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury holiday to Costa Rica and you'll discover a heaven for anyone interested in tropical wildlife, flora and fauna. It has several spectacular protected reserves, the result of the region's most enlightened conservation policies.
