Active Costa Rica Adventure

Discover the rainforest, volcanoes and coastline of captivating Costa Rica.

From rumbling volcanoes to sweeping, sandy beaches, Costa Rica’s beauty is evident in every corner. On this action-packed active Costa Rica adventure we try grade III whitewater rafting in Sarapiqui, take bikes around Lake Arenal and have a go at zip-lining through the misty cloud forest of Monteverde. Our adventure ends in the lush Manuel Antonio National Park, where we can appreciate the wildlife and picture-perfect coastline on a catamaran excursion.

Operator

“If you’re looking for a company with experience you can’t beat these guys. This operator started life in February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments.

For the company, and people who work for them “it’s all about adventure” which is what they were founded on and what they are still about today. Their trips take place all around the world where they help travelers to delve into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to a country’ unique identity.

We love that their groups and guides travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise the impact, to ensure that every holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.”
