Costa Rica

Costa Rica is an outdoor adventurer's paradise. There are miles of unspoiled beaches to see, rainforests and cloudforests to learn about, world-class whitewater rafting and canoeing, fiery volcanoes and hot springs, and heart-stopping encounters with exotic wildlife and colorful tropical birds at every turn.

A Wildlife Lover's Paradise
Twelve distinct ecological zones of breathtaking beauty cover an area the size of New Hampshire, from the mangrove forests of the Caribbean lowlands to the misty cloudforests that blanket the top of the continental divide and back down to the sunny Pacific beaches. Nowhere else on earth is biological abundance and diversity so evident than in the Costa Rican rainforests: tropical rainforests contain more than half of all living things known to man. The rainforest is a place of peace and renewal; mysterious, life-affirming, and of majestic proportions. Costa Rica alone has more plant species than the whole of Europe, and a staggering world of exotic wildlife that runs into the millions of species.

Our Ultimate Wildlife itinerary is our most comprehensive, but we also offer custom trips for individuals, families, groups, organizations, travel agents, and special interest trips like yoga.
