The good life in Costa Rica, float­ing on the Rideau, Zoom­ing: The Travel Club

FOR CANA­DIAN trav­ellers, Vir­tu­oso, a rec­og­nized net­work of ad­vis­ers and trend spot­ter for high-end ex­pe­ri­en­tial travel, high­lights Costa Rica as the No. 1 Top Ad­ven­ture Des­ti­na­tion and the No. 4 in Top Global Des­ti­na­tions in its 2018 Luxe Re­port. And why not? Hik­ing, bird­ing, canopy climb­ing, white­wa­ter raft­ing and rain­forests, this coun­try of less than five mil­lion has all the phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity you can han­dle. Add in some lux­ury ho­tels, and you’ve got the per­fect va­ca­tion for Cana­di­ans who want ad­ven­ture with all the crea­ture com­forts.

Na­yara Springs, for in­stance, of­fers views of the Are­nal Vol­cano from the com­fort of spa­cious bun­ga­lows with pri­vate plunge pools – fed by min­eral hot springs and where you can pon­der which of the six on-site restau­rants at which to dine. www.na­yarasprings.com

Pre­fer wildlife over vol­ca­noes? The Gaia Ho­tel & Re­serve in Manuel An­to­nio Beach puts you closer to the in­fa­mous white-faced ca­puchin mon­keys in the na­tional park (re­mem­ber Mar­cel on Friends?). And, like him, they are cheeky and can tell you’re pack­ing food at 30 me­tres! www.ga­iahr.com —Ar­lene Stacey For more on Costa Rica and Na­yara Springs, go to ev­ery­thing­zoomer.com/costa-rica-liv­ing-la-vida-rica.
