Costa Rica Ultimate Adventure
December 6-16, 2012
Pura Vida! Join us on this amazing 11-day journey where we'll be traveling from the Central Highlands to the Pacific coastline. Our trip begins with a visit to Arenal Volcano National Park, named after the majestic Arenal Volcano, one of the world's ten most active volcanoes. We'll get to enjoy the floating safari in the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge, where you can see three species of monkeys, tons of migratory and resident birds, sloths, caimans, turtles and plenty other species. If you like hiking, you'll be in heaven. There are several great hikes to chose from. If you are seeking some extreme sports, the whitewater rafting and canyoneering are terrific. In the evening, we'll get to relax and recharge ourselves in the natural thermal hot springs. The next trip segment takes us high into the cloud forest of Monteverde, famous for its zip lines and long suspension bridges. There are many other activities, including the Serpentarium with many varieties of snakes, or the Frog Pond with exhibits of many amphibian species like the poison dart frog. Also coffee plantation tours , night tours, the new Bat exhibit with live bats, the Insect exhibit, the Butterfly Garden, the Monteverde Cheese Factory tour, horseback riding or souvenir hunting. Before you leave this region, you'll have a deeper appreciation for nature. Our final destination will be Costa Rica's premier national park, Manuel Antonio, on the Pacific Coast. We'll spend our days kayaking, exploring the park, viewing local wildlife (such as the endangered squirrel monkey) and relaxing on the white sand beaches.
