When you look at Costa Rica’s geography and wealth of natural features you’d think it was designed by an adventure traveler. With multi-day jungle treks; white-water by raft, canoe or kayak; mountain biking on scenic back-country roads and trails; adventures on horseback; world-class fishing on either coast; excellent surfing in warm tropical waters on both the Pacific or Caribbean coasts; snorkelling or scuba diving; rappelling down waterfalls; coastal sea-kayaking and of course “flying” over and through the forest canopy on an exciting zip-line tour; there are so many Costa Rican adventures to experience. Let us get creative and put yours together because if you want it, Costa Rica’s got it!
“Nature Travel” has grown to be synonymous with Costa Rica. The country offers endless opportunities to experience nature to the fullest. Costa Rican flora includes orchids, tropical flowers, numerous delicious tropical fruits and lush forest vegetation.
Wildlife includes colorful frogs, prehistoric-looking iguanas, monkeys, sloths, sea turtles, and hundreds of birds from tiny hummingbirds to the Resplendent Quetzal and the beautiful Scarlet Macaw. Snorkelers and scuba divers can additionally experience a rich marine fauna. Costa Rica is also home to a number of volcanoes, including Arenal which has been active and emitting lava for over 40 years, one of the world´s most active!
Are you an individual or a group of friends with a specific interest such as hiking, ornithology, botany, biking, rafting or photography? Would you be interested in learning Spanish or volunteering at a national park or a private nature reserve?

Travel to Costa Rica is an excellent opportunity for high school or college students to learn more about the world around them. Being immersed in a Spanish culture is an invaluable lesson in language, watching lava pour down a volcano’s slopes is an unforgettable geology lesson, and hiking in a tropical rainforest is the ultimate class in natural history. Meeting Costa Ricans and sampling local foods will enhance one’s understanding of other cultures. Add to this an adventure like a zip-line canopy tour or a surfing lesson and students will get a truly enjoyable education in becoming world citizens! see more…
A trip to Costa Rica can be custom-designed for women travelers and feature activities of specific interest to them. Among the possibilities: visit a tropical botanical or orchid garden, tour a tropical butterfly farm, take a night hike to watch sea turtles lay eggs on the beach, learn how to salsa dance, help prepare and enjoy local cuisine; ride horseback in a forest or on the beach, boat through canals to watch wildlife amidst lush rainforest…The list goes on and on!
Honeymoons and Romance
Costa Rica is an ideal location for couples to enjoy a romantic get-away. Its tropical warm climate, coconut palm-lined beaches, year-round warm ocean waters (about 80°F/ 24 C), excellent hotels (from unique boutique hotels to renowned internationals) with delicious and often tropically-inspired cuisine, and wide variety of places to visit and activities to enjoy, make it an outstanding destination to celebrate any romantic occasion.
Costa Rica is a great family destination. Bring your young children, teenagers, parents and grandparents, and we will make it an adventure and a memory of a lifetime. Tours can be designed where families share some activities such as observing lava pouring down the slopes of an active volcano or looking for night critters along a rainforest trail, yet allow time for individual pursuits like nature photography or an exhilarating forest canopy “zip-line tour.” Getting together and sharing trip photos and memories of exciting and compelling experiences tends to produce bonds that last years longer than the trip, something many of us refer to as “family glue.”
