The trip "Costa Rica & Panama Trip: 10 Days - Caribbean Retreat" starts from and ends in San Jose. This is an adventure trip that takes 10 days taking you through San Jose, San Jose, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and Bocas Del Toro in Panama and Costa Rica. This is a guided group trip that includes accommodation in guesthouses, transport, meals and others.

This chilled out 10-day trip is all about the Caribbean vibe: white-sand beaches, reggae music, hammock siestas and serene turquoise water. We journey down to the Rastafarian town of Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica by rafting down the extravagant Rio Pacuare, named 1 of the 5 most beautiful rivers in the world by National Geographic! We then settle in the wonderland of Bocas del Toro in Panama to experience everything that the Caribbean has to offer. There's a very cool mixture of Latin and Creole culture present in this region and English-speaking locals give you a break from practicing your Spanish to joke about with the people here. There’s also some stellar diving and snorkeling in the unbelievably clear water, as well as very underrated waves for surfing on the picturesque Caribbean beaches. And no trip through the Caribbean is complete without hopping on a yacht and gliding across the crystal waters with a beverage of your choice in hand and your entire Free & Easy group around you!
