Discovery Costa Rica, by its very name, signifies a new high point for the destination industry. Driven by a commitment to serve travelers who long for authentic and engaging experiences, Discovery introduces the very first in a unique class of immersive destinations. Instead of settling for conventional theme parks and simulated habitats, travelers will now be treated to a truly inspirational adventure that connects them to the very best of what both Costa Rica and Discovery have to offer.

The concept is simple yet extraordinary: an amenity-rich multi-site destination in the heart of a tropical paradise. It encompasses a multitudes of hotels and lodges, world-class restaurants, blue ocean excursions, access to advanced healthcare ad wellness facilities, a deep menu of concierge services, and one-of-a-kind learning opportunities. All this is set among lush tropical forests, canyons, waterfalls, volcanos, and a pristine Pacific waterfront. It’s a place designed for nature lovers, hikers, scuba and snorkeling enthusiasts, all kinds of thrill seekers, medical tourists and every individual and family wishing to engage, learn and create extraordinary memories.

It also embodies Discovery’s and Costa Rica’s shared commitment to conservation and sustainability, which includes the largest solar-powered planned community in the world at Discovery Ranch—the destination’s primary 2,186 acre site. This and other green initiatives support a mission to share and preserve a rich ecosystem that is home to 5% of the earth’s biodiversity. After all, where else can one find 52 species of hummingbirds, over 1,000 varieties of orchids, and more than 10% of the world’s butterflies?

Perhaps the most special aspect of this amazing destination is the connection with the warm and welcoming people of Costa Rica, whose signature “Pura Vida” approach to life may account for their consistent ranking as the happiest people in the world.

Simply put, the whole of Discovery Costa Rica is larger and more remarkable than the sum of its parts. The three sites: Discovery Ranch, Discovery Volcano and Discovery Beach are designed to offer a varied, yet integrated hospitality and leisure experience. But the multi-site experience is so much more: it provides guests a deep, interactive relationship with all that makes Costa Rica a true paradise.

As a purpose-driven company, Discovery Communications is dedicated to not only entertaining but inspiring. For 30 years we have told stories that entertain, inspire and enlighten our viewers around the world, about the world. But our work doesn’t stop there, we are committed to making the world a better place by leveraging our market-leading global platform, and by extending the reach and influence of like-minded organizations and causes. We are deeply committed to preventing wildlife crimes and protecting the species for future generations; here is one example of what we have done in Costa Rica.
