What we're about

Welcome to the group! Houston is HUGE and only getting bigger. So for newcomers it is a daunting task to do anything. For locals...well they tend to stay in their local community and not venture out much. This group will explore familiar haunts along with periodically checking out some new areas of interest. We're always looking for new Assistant Organizers with new/fresh ideas. If you are willing to host events, please email me with your ideas. I would love to hear from you!

Should you need help finding a home, I would love your help you. Just message me and I'll get back with you promptly.

All the best,

Nermine, Realtor®

8 nights/ 9 day adventure tour through Costa Rica!

Breakfast every day

7 lunches, 7 dinners (All meals throughout)

Private guide & driver (Local professionals with years of experience and qualifications)

Awesome, unique hotels and lodges throughout

Coffee! Doka Estate Coffee plantation is not only beautiful with amazing coffee, we’ll also learn about the production, the harvesting, the processing and the roasting of the grain. A fascinating visit whether you like the world’s most consumed beverage or not.

Pierella Butterfly & Ecological Gardens - Located in the Sarapiquí lowlands, this family-run garden was established 20 years ago as a project to breed butterflies for export. Over time, it has been transformed into an area of 5 hectares changing from a simple butterfly nursery to a true ecological garden that now hosts a great diversity of environments and wildlife to explore. Join our naturalist guide and experience Pierella’s great birding trails with amazing photo opportunities and wildlife everywhere we look!

Vida Campesina Farm - An organic farm lets us see real life in the Costa Rican countryside with a farming family.

Arenal Volcano National Park guided Lava flow hike - Lava rocks and occasional eruptions, this volcano is surrounded by lush rainforest and second growth that cover the old lava flows and river sides.

Llanos de Cortez Falls - Considered one of the best waterfalls in the country! Great swimming by the falls no to mention amazing photographs.

Optional Early Morning Bird Watching every day (included and offered for the photo and bird enthusiasts!)

Wetlands Boat Tour Floating safari - Variety of resident and migratory birds plus three different species of monkeys, iguanas, sloths, turtles and caimans.

Malekus Indian Reserve - Unique history and cultural experience: see the medicinal plant garden, enjoy a reenactment of a traditional Maleku dance, and try out their version of archery.

Rincon de la Vieja National Park - Famous for its abundant volcanic activity, we’ll explore Las Pailas Trail within the National Park, not only for the volcano, but plenty of wildlife to photograph within an impressive tropical forest.

Hacienda Guachipelín - Positioned at the foot of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, adventure beckons at this boutique resort. Thrilling experiences include swinging like Tarzan on the many cables and ropes of the Canyon Canopy Tour, or cruise down the rapids of Rio Negro on a Tubing Adventure (optional). Relax your weary muscles in natural volcanic thermal springs or spectacular waterfall pools.

Relax at one of best beaches in Costa Rica, Hermosa Beach - We’ll finish the adventure at this pristine, world renowned beach! The taupe sand beach is bathed by clear waters and some great waves (if the conditions are right). Many water sports can be enjoyed including fishing, swimming, windsurfing, and others.

All taxes, fees, transfers included (excludes airport departure tax)

Airfare is not included but we will help you find a good flight!
