With today’s hectic lifestyle, it's never been more important to enjoy an occasional break from the daily grind, take a digital detox from our phones or simply make time to revel in the world around us. If you’re looking to pair all this with an immersion into nature, then Costa Rica makes for a prime destination choice.
Luxury eco lodges are located within or near national parks so you can swap out tweeting from your phone with the tweeting of exotic birds during a morning yoga session in a rainforest. Or, try a midday jungle trek or an early evening’s jaunt to spot wildlife. If you’re looking to be at one with nature, there are several great off-the-beaten-track rainforest excursions that can fit the bill.
Corcovado National Park may be one of the country’s largest but its location off the South Pacific coast on the Peninsula means it's still a hidden destination gem. With shallow lagoons, marshlands, mangrove swamps, rivers, wet forest, low-altitude cloud forest, and sandy beaches, Corcovado is one of Central America’s most unique ecosystems. Costa Rica houses 6.5% of the world’s biodiversity and 2.5% can be found within the park’s territory.
