From hiking at the base of Arenal volcano and bathing in the hot springs, to watching nesting turtles on the black sand beaches on the coast, cooking traditional cuisine with the locals to zip-lining with tropical birds in the cloud forest canopy, it’s an action-packed two weeks with a few days to relax on the beach as your time comes to an end, and your final stay is at a charming, sustainable boutique hotel on an organic coffee plantation, which is a global leader in responsible tourism.
For lovers of outdoor activities there is the opportunity to surf on the wild Pacific coast, and wild swimming in crystal clear lagoons in the jungle.
Wildlife enthusiasts can spot exotic birds, sea turtles, sloths, monkeys, tapirs and more, all in their natural habitat whether it be the steamy jungle, the beautiful cloud forest or the tropical beaches on a wildlife holiday that takes you to the most biodiverse parts of Costa Rica.
This is a Costa Rican adventure holiday with a difference. As well as the natural highlights, you’ll get to properly know the cuisine, the culture, and the people of the country. Visit traditional workshops and try your hand at craftsmanship, learn to master Costa Rican cuisine with the locals, and explore rural villages and meet the people who make Costa Rica.
By the time you leave, the memories of the magical landscapes will certainly remain, but the thing that will stick with you the most is the incredible warmth and generosity of the local people.
