Latin America / Costa Rica
Costa Rica Caribbean Multisport Tour
Hike, Tree Climb, Hot Springs, and Horseback Ride, with options to Sea Kayak, Snorkel and Waterfall Rappel
So you think you've seen Costa Rica? Think again! This trip takes us well off-the-beaten tourist path to explore the best adventure destinations that this amazing country has to offer. Costa Rica, arguably the world's greatest nature/eco-adventure destination, offers far too much diversity to catch it all in one go. But if you only have one go, then make this one it!
Days 1-3: San Jose-Sarapiqui River-Arenal Volcano
Frolic on the river, spot the flash of the blue morpho butterfly and see an abundance of birds while whitewater rafting on the Class II-III Sarapiqui River. We hike to the summit of Cerro Chato, a great observation point on theflanks of Arenal Volcano. We trek through a dense primary forest and are welcomed on the top by a stunning crystal-clear lagoon. We conclude with a descent to the bottomof La Fortuna Waterfall where we swim in the refreshing pools.
Days 4-5: Selva Bananito
You haven't had a good tree climb since you were a kid? Climb like an inch worm up a "broccoli" tree using a secure system of harnesses and ascenders. Or take a horseback ride in the surrounding countryside. An unforgettable hike up the Bananito riverbed into the rainforest makes over 60 river crossings. For true adventure seekers, we have an optional rappel down an 80-foot waterfall or choose to take a swim in the river instead.
Days 6-9: Puerto Viejo-Cahuita National Park-San Jose
Visit the white sand beaches, calm sea of transparent waters and coral reefs of Cahuita National Park, with options to enjoy the beach, surf, sea kayak, snorkel, canopy tour or horseback ride. We have one final morning of beach time before heading back to San Jose and our farewell dinner.
