Discounts to Costa Rica -- an ''ecological treasure-trove'' according to Rough Guides -- are few and far between. That's why this exclusive 11-night trip from The Holiday Place, now £1000 less than usual, grabbed our attention.
For £1299 per person, the exciting itinerary includes:
All accommodation is on a bed-and-breakfast basis. The first seven nights come with a host of free guided tours, including trips to a coffee plantation in San José, a guided tour of the Grecia & Sarchi Oxcart Factory with lunch, a visit to Arenal Volcano, a boat ride from Arenal to Monteverde and a Sky Trek canopy tour in Monteverde (famed for its hanging bridges). The last four nights will be spent relaxing on the beach.
With lush rainforests, deserted beaches, angry volcanoes and the greatest density of species in the world, Costa Rica has something for everyone. From wildlife spotting and beach lounging to surfing and hiking, ''little Costa Rica packs a bigger punch than countries 10 times its size'' says Fodor's.
Flights depart from London Heathrow on select dates from April-June and August-November. It's an extra £400 to travel on select dates in July; December; January-April, 2014.
Book by 30 April.
Add an extra three nights at La Posada Inn from £99 per person. Add on three nights in Miami at the 4-star Hilton Miami Downtown from an extra £349 per person.
