Costa Rica Explorer

14 days, San José to San José

CEO and group looking through the telescope in lush Costa Rica
!

Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "Costa Rica Explorer" (CRE),but here are some similar trips.

Costa Rica has as many microclimates as it does opportunities for active adventures, and this 2-week journey will bring you the best of both. There's a visit to a cloud forest, but for a bigger jolt, opt to rappel down waterfalls or fly across ziplines above the treetops. For the caffeine connoisseur, we visit a coffee co-op and learn how it gets from bean to your cup. For a different pace, float through the canals of the Tortuguero National Park in search of wildlife. From the Caribbean beaches to the Pacific, this stunning tour embodies some of the best that Costa Rica has to offer.
