Costa Rica Adventure Tours and Trips

Costa Rica is bordered to the north by Nicaragua and to the south by Panama and is a small country by most standards. With 46 national parks, reserves and wildlife refuges Costa Rica is known throughout the world as an environmental eco-centre!

With thick rainforests, active volcanoes and pristine beaches to explore, Costa Rica is an adventure holiday paradise. Walk amongst the rainforest canopy, discover hidden waterfalls, soak in natural hot springs or even learn to surf. Just south of Costa Rica are Panama's secluded Caribbean islands, Bocas del Toro. Discover peaceful beaches, the Bastimentos National Marine Park, home to turtle nesting grounds, tropical birds and fine snorkelling.

Costa Rica Tour Highlights

  • Manuel Antonio National Park
    This world famous National Park is a must see in Costa Rica with unspoilt rainforests and hidden beaches to be enjoyed. Explore Cathedral Point, which joins the ancient Cathedral Island to the mainland, and Serrucho Point, an awesome, deeply eroded cliff that looks like a saw honeycombed with sea caves. The underwater turtle trap on the western tip of Manuel Antonio Beach, is the best place to observe a multitude of exotic fish at low tide. Keep an eye out for playful monkeys or slow moving, camouflaged sloth in the tree tops.
  • Arenal Volcano
    One of the ten most active volcanoes in the world, Arenal is a fascinating natural wonder and a must visit destination. Small eruptions can be seen every 30 minutes with larger explosive eruptions happening every 3 to 4 years. As the light fades in the evening, Arenal delivers an incredible natural lightshow spewing glowing lava and rock into the night air. It's energy powers the nearby natural hot springs that are perfect for refreshing your legs after a day of horse riding or hiking to the nearby waterfalls.
  • Monteverde Cloud Forest
    Home to unsurpassed biodiversity and private reserves, Monteverde brings you face to face with nature! Accessed by dirt roads, the journey is bumpy but well worth it! Enjoy a bird's eye view from inside the forest canopy as you zipline amongst the cloud drenched canopies and across ravines, horse ride amongst the flora and fauna or maybe savor a hot cup of locally grown, organic coffee as you prepare for another day in paradise!
