An active tour to discover the rainforest, volcanoes and coastline of captivating Costa Rica

This adventure is an active tour of the best of Costa Rica. Discover volcanoes, rainforests, and the gorgeous coastline of this small by mighty country. Every stop on this trip is action-packed. Picture yourself attempting class three whitewater rafting in Sarapiqui, or biking near Lake Arenal, and then trying a zip-line through Monteverde’s misty cloud forest.

The highlight of the trip comes at the end. You’ll visit Manuel Antonio National Park to enjoy the wildlife and coastline on a catamaran excursion.

After flying into San Jose, you’ll visit so many places on this 11 day trip it will feel like a whirlwind. After rafting down the Sarapiqui, you’ll visit Arenal National Park, the Ecotermale Hot Springs, Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve, and more. The reserve is known as one of Costa Rica’s ‘Seven Wonders,’ you’ll see tons of mammals, birds, reptiles, butterflies, and amphibians in this habitat.

As this is an active adventure, a reasonable level of fitness will help you get the most out of your trip. Prior whitewater rafting experience is not a requirement – if this is your first time, your guides will help you learn the basic skills needed to enjoy yourself.

Tour 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.
