Bienvenidos a Costa Rica. Lush rainforests and beautiful beaches featuring an abundance of unique flora and fauna are among the highlights of all of our Costa Rica tours.
Hike through verdant rain forests, relax on tropical beaches, and climb volcanoes on a Costa Rica vacation.
National parks and ecological reserves make up almost a quarter of this Central American country, which is home to over 800 species of birds. See the nesting grounds of sea turtles in Tortuguero National Park on the Caribbean coast, and spot caimans and river turtles in Tortuguero's lagoons. The park is also home to spider monkeys, howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, and sloths. On the Pacific coast, Manuel Antonio National Park is one of the country's most visited parks and home to almost 200 species of birds. Here, you can relax on white-sand beaches or go snorkeling to get an up-close look at the region's sea life.
Iconic Arenal Volcano is one of Costa Rica's must-visit destinations. The area's unique geology offers visitors an abundance of activities, including thermal hot springs, river-rafting, zip-lining, or kayaking on Lake Arenal-the country's largest lake.
Don't miss the opportunity to soar above the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. This is a rare type of ecosystem, and the persistent condensation and cloud cover create an otherworldly ambiance. Experience all the magic when you walk through the treetops on the park's canopy-level suspension bridges.
In Costa Rica's capital city, you can wander Mercado Centrale for fresh produce and goods, learn about the country's history and culture at the National Museum, soak in the sun at La Sabana Metropolitan Park, or see a show at the National Theater. From San Jose, you can also visit the towns of San Isidro de Heredia, home of world-renowned gourmet chocolatiers, and Sarchí, famous for its artisan crafts and souvenirs.
