"A wildlife lovers fantasy, it's got it all and this is your chance to see it all! If you're into photography then this is really you're dream come true!"
Costa Rica is truly a wildlife hotspot, making this adventure perfect for those who love nature. Start your trip in San José, the capital of the country, before you move deeper into the forest to experience Costa Rica’s wild side. Afterwards you will head down to the coast - having access to your own 4x4 means you can spend some time cruising round and exploring the area at your own pace, as well as having the chance to visit some of the country's highlights including the Arenal Volcano and Monteverde. Each night will be spent in a comfortable, local hotel.
A tour of the Arenal volcano will not only leave you marvelling at the power of nature but will also see you flying through trees on a zip-line and swinging through the canopy on hanging bridges. Roam into the heart of the forest as you visit the Monteverde Biological Reserve, which conceals an incredible range of animal and plant species alike. Next, ride down to Manuel Antonio where you will have three days to explore the National Park, including tours and the chance to go to the beach. On your last full day you will get to spend some tranquil time on the beach enjoying the chance to soak up a few more rays.
Our local Costa Rican partners have various recycling, electricity-saving and water efficiency initiatives to help minimise waste and reduce emissions. They also work to replant native trees, helping to regenerate natural habitats.
To address the social and economic pillars of sustainability, they aim to bring benefits to local communities by hiring local guides, ensuring that revenue stays within destination communities. The company has also improved its commitment to social responsibility by adapting tours to meet the requirements of people with disabilities.
Finally, our partners also promote programmes like the CST (Certification of Tourism Sustainability) and The Blue Flag Ecology Program - programmes that aim to protect the environment for future generations whilst also providing education relating to sustainable practices.
This further verifies our Costa Rican experiences above and beyond our own world rating system!
