Costa Rica: Classic Highlights

Cost Rica Classic Highlights - Hero

Independent Tours

This tour introduces you to quintessential Costa Rica, including both the Caribbean and Pacific coastlines. You’ll transfer between the national parks of Tortuguero, Arenal Volcano and Manuel Antonio, and stay at eco-friendly lodges and resort hotels. It’s an enlightening experience with lots of guided nature trails included. Visiting Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, for example, with a knowledgeable naturalist, will give you a much greater understanding of what you’re seeing, and hearing. The included canopy tour in Monteverde presents the cloud forest from an elevated perspective. Costa Rica’s classic highlights aren’t that far apart, and as you travel by road and river, you’ll find opportunities to meet other travellers along the way. Also, as you’ll spend three nights in Manuel Antonio National Park, there will be plenty of time for optional activities. Surfing, sailing, and snorkelling in the Pacific are always good excuses to write that postcard home.
