Let the monkeys lull you to sleep as the lush landscape surrounds you.
You will also:
Explore Tortuguero National Park
Head down the rivers and canals and go behind the curtain of a jungle paradise. Relax at an incredible lodge—an oasis in the middle of the jungle. Take an excursion to spot the elusive green macaw and other unique winged creatures. Enjoy a nature cruise and stroll the butterfly and botanical gardens lined with fruit trees.
Enjoy the beautiful surroundings on a Peñas Blancas River Safari
Paddle or float down river, taking in the sights and sounds of the rainforest as your naturalist explains the wonders around you. Visit a local farm and try some of Costa Rica’s specialty snacks, and choose to explore via horseback or walk through a forest reserve.
Envelop yourself in culture at Finca Don Juan
Explore sustainable, organic vegetable and fruit gardens and learn the traditional way to process sugar cane. Relish in a birds-eye view of the jungle as you tour Arenal’s hanging bridges. Marvel at a cloud forest and enjoy striking views of Arenal’s famous volcano.
Experience Manuel Antonio National Park
Rendezvous with wild crocodiles among the mangroves, swim in turquoise waters at white sand beaches, and traverse the trails where the wild things are.
PLUS, enjoy adventures of your choice!
Choose to zip line over the jungle canopies or join a moderate hike across lava fields to get up-close-and-personal with a volcano. Discover the culture of a Costa Rican town or relax in a hot spring.
