Costa Rica Adventure Tours
When you're travelling on a Costa Rica adventure tour, binoculars should be top of your packing list. Costa Rica has an incredible number of different habitats in its small area, from rainforests and cloud forests, to dry tropical and temperate forests, to mangroves, to active volcanoes, to hot sandy Caribbean and Pacific beaches, to high forest-clad mountains, and marshy lowlands. This diversity of landscapes combined with a rich variety of flora and fauna makes Costa Rica adventure tours a must-do in the world for nature lovers.
In terms of plant species are some 1,500 species of orchids alone. The animals are equally impressive with elusive jaguars roaming the forests and wonderful birds like green and scarlet macaws soaring majestically above the canopy. Toucans, howler monkeys, squirrel monkeys and tapir are also among the stars of Costa Rica's animal kingdom, while brightly coloured poison dart frogs can be found in various lurid colours. Humpback whales can be seen breaching the seas during their annual migration. Our Costa Rica adventure tours provide adrenaline seekers with a myriad of options to choose from, including canopy zip line tours, river kayaking, surfing, white water rafting, snorkelling and scuba diving, visits to sea turtle nesting sites (seasonal) and many other excursions.
