Postcards from Costa Rica: A real taste of Pura Vida!

Published by

We love nothing more than seeing the holiday photos you take on your adventures. And, every now and again, one of our wonderful clients sends us a holiday snap that stops us all in our tracks.

Paul and Caroline have done just that, but not with just one! They’ve sent us the most incredible selection of photos from their Costa Rica holiday that it was nearly impossible to choose just 30 to share. A huge thank you to them for taking the time to share these with us and we hope they inspire you as much as they have us. This spectacular country really does have a slice of magic around every turn.


“Costa Rica… with plenty of wow factor! Just returned from a 3 week trip to Costa Rica, planned out for us by Louise at Holiday Architects. She listened closely to what we wanted to do, and organised for us to visit six different locations, all packed with interest. Accommodation was excellent, in country support very good. All in fall a fantastic holiday, and pretty much completely hassle free. Highly recommended.”
