Farming in Costa Rica & Panama | 7 January
Costa Rica is an exotic nation of laid-back, friendly and happy people. Its culture is a vibrant blend of the many immigrants who lent their character and customs and have made the country their home. Spain’s colonial influence with Jamaica and China thrown in, all adds to the richness and cultural diversity of its people. Known as one of the ‘greenest countries in the world’, 30% of Costa Rica is proclaimed as national park. The abundance of wildlife is astounding and varied, with iguanas, monkeys, sloths, butterflies and colourful exotic birds, including hummingbirds, and toucans. The mountain ranges, cloud forests, rivers, lakes, volcanoes, outstanding beaches and biodiversity offer a unique travel destination and this tour includes them all.

Mauritius is unforgettable! Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Madagascar and 2000kms off the coast of south east Africa, Mauritius has a mild climate, turquoise seas and French as its local language. White sandy beaches, lagoons and reefs contrast with rainforest and waterfalls in the mountainous interior. Local Mauritian crops include sugar cane and rice, as well as citrus and soft fruits which are often grown with vegetables and flowers for export.
