Get closer to nature with this 8-day adventure through Costa Rica and never look at the world the same way again. It doesn't take long to come to understand the motivation behind the dedication to the conservation efforts in Costa Rica -- it is a nation in which a quarter of the country's total territory is protected within national parks and designated conservation areas -- as we head to one of the country's largest national parks in the initial stages of our tour to witness the beauty, diversity and richness of a unique and striking natural environment. We wander through verdant, mist-enshrouded forests, spend time relaxing on paradisiacal gold-sand beaches, or in bubbling hotsprings with the majestic Arenal Volcano as a backdrop, cast off for a boat trip through untouched wilds along the canals of Tortuguero Park and become entranced by the magic of a glorious country whose nature comes second to none.
Ernest G. (Surrey, BC, CA)
All the activities were great. Jam packed days. Loved it. Laura, our tour leader, was very organized and considerate. This was a great group, everyone prompt and friendly. Laura did lists for all of us of all the animals and birds that we saw in the rainforest. Does she ever sleep? All in all, great trip!

He [Andres Fernandez] really is one of the best tour leaders we have had!

I enjoyed the stay and the walk in the Rincon de la Vieja Park and the visit to the hot springs spa.

Seasonality and Weather
This tour is offered throughout the year. In the Central Valley, where the main centres of population are located, the average temperature is 22C (72F). In the coastal areas the temperature is much hotter and humid. The "green" season runs May-November. The warm dry season is Dec-May, though temperature differences between summer and winter are slight.
Transport and Travel Conditions
Road transport by private air-conditioned motor coach, 12-30 seats depending on ultimate group size (see 'group size'). Costa Rica's roads are generally good though we do have some long (though scenic) road journeys. Numerous nature walks and walking tours on uneven surfaces.
Our difficulty level "2" rating refers to the above-mentioned busy days, walking tours on uneven terrain, lack of handrails (public and elsewhere, ie shower stalls), and fatigue that can be caused by heat and humidity and unfamiliar food and drink.
Well-located, heated / air-conditioned, mid-range (3 star) hotels with en suite toilet and bath throughout (probably shower only). Single rooms are limited and likely smaller than doubles. Hotel porter service is sometimes available (see 'inclusions') though you should be independent with your luggage. Some hotels have outdoor swimming pools.
