You are invited to join my small group trip to Costa Rica, one of the most beautiful natural destinations you have ever visited! Breathtaking scenery, tons of wildlife, lots of adventurous things to do and places to explore. We will visit Manuel Antonio, the top beach/rainforest destination in the country, on December 5th - 12th, 2021. Very small group, so don't wait to put down your $350 deposit to reserve your space. Price is $1549 per person, based on double occupancy. Includes 7 nights lodging, breakfast daily, all transportation with a driver, a guide, and THREE included adventure tours! Go white water rafting on the Savegre River, one of the cleanest most beautiful rivers in Costa Rica, Sail and snorkel in the beautiful blue ocean and hunt for the humpback whales in the Ocean King Catamaran, finally you will zipline thru the rainforest! There are some other adventures included that are a surprise! You will stay in a Rainforest Lodge near Manuel Antonio Park and the beach. You will see sloths, monkeys, scarlet macaws and toucans and you will be amazed at the beauty of this amazing country. I have lived in Costa Rica for years and know all the ins and outs and the best beaches and off the beaten track adventures.
