Taste Costa Rican coffee direct from the source and enjoy a farm-to-table cooking class before venturing deep into the jungle on a wildlife safari in search of capuchin monkeys and jaguars. Swim in waterfalls, go white-water rafting, soak in hot springs and spot sloths on a moonlit hike through Monteverde Cloud Forest. Your final stop is the chilled-out surf town of Tamarindo on the Pacific Coast – where you can learn how to ride waves, or simply soak up the sun on the pristine beach.
Dream honeymoons don’t come much dreamier than a trip to the Galápagos Islands. With volcanic landscapes and wildlife in abundance, this Pacific archipelago is guaranteed to capture your heart. On this five-day Culture Trip express tour, you’ll kayak in the Itabaca Channel with a chance to safely observe white-tipped reef sharks and stay in luxury safari tents or treehouses in the Santa Cruz highlands – surrounded by free-roaming Galápagos giant tortoises. Hike along lava trails and encounter endemic birdlife on San Cristóbal, where you’ll be able to swim alongside sea lions. An optional snorkelling or scuba diving trip to Kicker Rock gives you the chance to spot whitetip sharks, eagle rays and a myriad of other aquatic creatures up close.

Get on your dancing shoes in a traditional champeta dance class, canoe through mangroves in La Boquilla and take a day trip to the idyllic Rosario Islands. You’ll spend the final three nights of this Culture Trip tour at a secluded eco-hotel near the laid-back beach town of Palomino – a perfect base for trekking through the hidden beaches and dense forest of the Tayrona National Park, before river tubing down the Río Don Diego.
