Costa Rica Traverse

The Coast to Coast Team ran a first rate operation. Would I do it again? Yes! I would have turned around on the beach and set off to do the full traverse right there and then.

Costa Rican Adventure

This flexible itinerary is ideal for travellers looking for a bit of an adventure, with time to explore the sights and relax on palm fringed beaches. The journey begins in San Jose before heading to the Pacuare River for two days of gentle whitewater rafting through this superb natural rainforest region. We then continue to Arenal Volcano where we enjoy a hike exploring the rich flora and fauna of this tropical rainforest. We will also incorporate some time to rejuvenate in the many natural hot springs. Finally you can choose between the Monteverde Cloud Forest or exploring the beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park and it's excellent Pacific Coast Beaches. Both areas offer a selection of optional activities which allow you to do as much or as little as you like.
