Colours of Costa Rica

THIS is a country that is never described as dull.

Nature has blessed Costa Rica with some of the most colourful wildlife in the world.

Golden Toads, Scarlet Macaw, Violet Hummingbirds and the iridescent blue Morpho Butterfly are just a few of the colourful fauna to be seen.

Orchids, bromeliads, strelitzia and heliconias are amongst the equally colourful flora of Costa Rica.

Both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, as well as the mountainous interior support one of the most bio-diverse places on earth.

Costa Rica is home to more than 100 mammal species, including tapir, sloths, White-nosed Coatimundi and Jaguar, as well as Red Poison-arrow Frogs and the rare Resplendent Quetzal.

Rumbling volcanoes, lush jungles, misty rainforests, mirror still lagoons and pristine palm fringed beaches set the scene for travellers who love nature.

Small group tour company, Toursgallery has added a new Costa Rica Nature Tour to their escorted tour programme.

Toursgallery's fully escorted 16 day tour features meetings with wildlife specialists in each area visited as well as an English speaking guide.

Guests stay in top quality hotels with a Caribbean atmosphere, as well as comfortable nature lodges where exotic birds, animals and rare tropical flowers are just a few footsteps away.

Departing on 7 June, Toursgallery's Costa Rica Nature Tour is priced at $6,998 twin share, including all meals, entry fees, domestic flights, private charter boats and road transportation.
