Journalist, producer and media consultant based in Spain working for UK press. My focus here is safe travel and the tourism industry. I also cover current affairs, business, architecture and rural regeneration, and work / have worked for The Guardian, BBC, FT, The Times, Conde Nast Traveller, Business Life, Reader's Digest, Evening Standard.
Here’s some photos of Costa Rica’s beach, bar, rainforest and hotel highlights. To join me for nine months on a jungle beach visit somewheresville.org. Many hotels and destinations feature in the The Guardian Holiday Guide
I recommend visiting Arenal volcano, because it’s not often you can lie in a hot river, or enjoy a cold beer with a view of a perfect cone right there in front of you, and the area is buzzing, but Rincon de la Vieja is my favourite, plus the multiple craters puff and bubble in the heart of Costa Rica’s cowboy country.
