LITTLETON, Colorado – July 12, 2017 – Look up to see majestic peaks, volcanoes, monkeys and sloths. Look down to dip your toes in thermal hot springs. Look ahead to see tranquil beaches and lush coffee and pineapple plantations. View these natural wonders and more while walking across suspension bridges, rafting on rivers or zipping over flora-and-fauna-filled rainforests as you explore Costa Rica!

“A destination for both sight-seers and -doers, our Costa Rica tours are all about interaction, immersion and adventure,” said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands. “From horseback riding towards thundering waterfalls to paddling down exotic rivers and even kayaking or snorkeling at sea, Costa Rica offers the active traveler stimulating experiences and inspiring views. And by arranging every aspect of a Costa Rican vacation – from lodging to getting around, plus access to expert Naturalists with ‘eagle eyes’ to guide travelers through their journey – our guests have just one job to do while vacationing in Costa Rica: Keep their eyes open.”

East meets West on the Globus family of brands’ Costa Rica vacations, giving travelers the chance to experience the diverse Caribbean and Pacific sides of the country, from Tortuguero National Park to Guanacaste and Manuel Antonio National Park. On Globus’ 9-day Natural Wonders of Costa Rica vacation, travelers even spend the night in the shadow of an active volcano at Arenal National Park.

“Home to 112 volcanos and five percent (5%) of the existing biodiversity in the entire world, Costa Rica is one of the most interesting, accessible and affordable exotic destinations for North American travelers,” said Nisbet.  “We expect sales to double for this important destination in the next year.”
