Adventure Holidays in Costa Rica

Discover the full spectrum of Costa Rica's wildlife – for this gloriously diverse ecosystem accounts for 5% of the world’s plant and animal species – through a range of activities on your Costa Rica tour: zip line through the mist-shrouded canopies of the cloud forest, where the roars of howler monkeys resonate around the hills, or glide through the tranquil canals of Tortuguero National Park. On summer trips to Costa Rica, you might even see green turtle hatchlings scramble across the sand towards the Caribbean Sea…. Oh, and did we mention the beaches?

Costa Rica holidays are for people who have a true love of nature. Many of the places we visit are privately owned lodges, set up to protect the land and to enable guests to enjoy the wildlife, only permitting small groups at any one time.

 

Or why not try a Tailormade Adventure?

We can tailor almost any holiday to suit you - perfect if you’d like to change a trip's travel dates or itinerary, or simply want a private adventure with a group of friends, family or fellow enthusiasts. All tailormade adventures include a local guide where appropriate, as well as all the other Exodus benefits.

Costa Rica – top four attractions

1. Arenal Volcano: Arenal was Costa Rica's most active volcano until fairly recently, when it entered a resting phase. There is still a lot of geothermal activity in the area, so you can view the volcano while relaxing in the soothing waters of one of the region's many hot springs. 

2. Monteverde: The cloud forests of Monteverde are a misty, verdant paradise, home to countless plant species and an amazing array of wildlife, including the notoriously shy resplendent quetzal. The local reserves have miles of walking trails, and there's zip lining over the forest canopy.

3. Manuel Antonio National Park: Set on the Pacific coast, Manuel Antonio may be the smallest national park in Costa Rica, but it boasts some of the country's best and most beautiful beaches. 

4. Tortuguero: The remote town of Tortuguero, on the Caribbean coast, is one of the world's major nesting grounds for both green and leatherback turtles. In the nesting seasons (April-May and July-October), join a local guide to see groups of turtles laying eggs in the sand.
