Boasting landscapes teeming with vegetation, extraordinary creatures and an unending array of nature´s wonders yet to be discovered, like waterfalls, volcanoes and thermal waters, Costa Rica is par excellence one destination for ecotourism and adventure tourism.
So, here there are three tours to enjoy your vacation to the max in this paradise that definitely means pura vida, as the Costarrican say!
Start by exploring the slopes of Rincon de la Vieja volcano through the amazing Vandara Full Day, in which by a tranquil horse ride you´ll get to know a little further the local life as you pass by forested land and farming areas. Next up, slide full speed through the treetops on an exhilarant canopy circuit!
But if what you look for is more action and adrenaline, then don´t you miss living the unforgettable Adventure Pass! Enjoy the majestic landscape from on high, but not on just any adventure, but with Costa Rica’s longest, double sea-view, zip line!; it not only will allow you to share this experience with whomever you desire, but you could also experience a unique race to reach the finish line.
You could also put your valor to a test when swinging 10 m high with the challenging Tarzan Swing and the Quick Jump’s free fall. Hanging bridges over a river infested with crocodiles, snorkel adventure, kayak or paddle board, and the visit to an amazing animal sanctuary, home to a great diversity of endemic species, like frogs, birds, monkeys, snakes, butterflies and more; that´s what awaits you on this well-rounded excursion.
And to round things up, how about an over 400 m long toboggan in the middle of the jungle? Surrounded by exuberant vegetation and overflowing with aquatic fun, the Mega Combo Buena Vista is just what you need. And, if after so many adventures you opt for a little rest and relaxation, nothing better than bathing in the thermal waters pool where, thanks to the different temperatures and its mineralized volcanic clay, you´ll feel better that at any other spa.
As you will see, from San Jose till Tamarindo, Papagayo, Jaco, Puntarenas or Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica boasts a world of adventure to live; so, don´t think twice and come to Costa Rica and dare to scream pura vida!
