COSTA RICA'S HIGHLIGHTS

COSTA RICA'S HIGHLIGHTS

Osa Peninsula

Even within a country renowned for its biodiversity, the Osa Peninsula is the hotspot for wildlife. The area’s primarily virgin rainforest and protected Golfo Dulce boast a dizzying number of different plant and animal species. It is truly a nature lover’s paradise! Explore the lush jungle and Pacific coast with an expert guide on foot. In the forest, guests may spot four species of monkeys, over 400 species of birds, morpho butterflies, and possibly even larger mammals like the elusive tapirs or jaguars. On a private boat, navigate the waters of Golfo Dulce, one of only four tropical fjords in the world. In these emerald green waters, one may encounter several species of dolphins, turtles, manta rays, schooling fish, seabirds, and maybe even whales.

Pacuare

Venture into the lush tropical foliage of the Pacuare forest in an unusual fashion -- by an exhilarating private white water rafting expedition! After enjoying some of the best rafting in all of Central America, arrive at the unique elevated bungalows of the Pacuare Lodge. From here, adventurous guests can explore the forest canopy from above on zip lines connecting the treetops or embark on rappelling and canyoning experiences. On the ground, hike through the pristine forest to a refreshing waterfall, or trek through the Talamanca Mountains, home to the Cabecar indigenous group. This immersive trek takes travelers through dense vegetation on paths that the Cabecar have used for centuries as part of their distinctive culture, where families live apart from each other rather than in villages.

Papagayo Peninsula

Located on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, the beautiful Papagayo Peninsula offers the best combination of privacy, luxury, unspoiled beaches, and outdoor activities. The calm, tropical waters surrounding the peninsula are ideal for marine activities such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, or a private sunset catamaran tour. After an active day enjoying the sun, sand, and sea, guests can relax and indulge in some pampering at the secluded Kasiiya retreat made up of seven air-conditioned tented suites. Each luxury tent is expertly designed to enhance guests’ connection to nature and features incredible ocean views. Alternatively, guests may choose to stay at the always luxurious Four Seasons, which offers a wide variety of high quality amenities.

Arenal

Visit the active Arenal Volcano and the surrounding lush rainforests teeming with an incredible variety of wildlife. The tropical mountain landscape is an exciting playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Here, guests will have the opportunity to explore the forest canopy via the longest zip lines in all of Costa Rica. This area is also a protected national park that offers excellent hikes. An expert guide will accompany you to point out colorful, tropical birds and other fauna species that reside within the secondary and primary rainforest. One such hike even includes the opportunity to cool off in the refreshing pool below the nearly 230 foot high La Fortuna Waterfall.

The country was great. We all feel our main guide, Adib, was exceptionally good. He was very well informed and went above and beyond to make us all happy during the trip. His driver was also outstanding and made us all feel safe on the treacherous roads of Morocco. It was truly one of the best vacations we have ever had.”
