Independent Tours

This independent tour lets you become enveloped in nature and experience the sights and sounds of Costa Rica’s incredible wildlife reserves. The emphasis is on discovery as you follow guides into steaming rainforests and over gently flowing rivers. You’ll travel between Braulio Carrillo National Park, Boca Tapada, and Arenal Volcano, and stay at eco-friendly lodges and resort hotels. The transfers will be private and shared vehicle rides. It’s an immersive experience with plenty of included wildlife watching in the company of knowledgeable naturalists and expert guides. The rainforest hike at Maquenque National Wildlife Refuge in particular, is simply unforgettable. Costa Rica is a compact country, and you’ll travel effortlessly throughout, completing the tour on the Pacific coast with a well-deserved four-night break on the beach. It’s the perfect end to the holiday and an opportunity to try your hand at watersports or just sit and watch the waves roll in over pure white sand.
