Our eco experience begins with two days in wildlife-rich Tortuguero National Park, known as Costa Rica’s “little Amazon”. Enjoy local boat guided tours through the national park’s narrow canals and admire its vast green filled lush rainforests where one can appreciate abundant wildlife. Then fly back to San José and continue to Arenal with your driver-guide. Visit an authentic Costa Rican coffee plantation and La Paz Waterfall Gardens on the way to the Arenal Volcano. The coffee plantation visit will allow you to learn about coffee cultivation and process. La Paz has a well-designed trail through its cloud forest that winds alongside the crystal-clear Peace River and leads to viewing platforms that bring you up close to five beautiful waterfalls. Also visit the Iguana Bridge, famous for its abundant iguanas. Stay two nights in Arenal enjoying a hike in Arenal Volcano National Park, the Arenal Hanging Bridges, a farm visit and lunch at Arenal Vida Campesina. Then continue to your next beach destination or return to San José.
