HIGHLIGHTS
  • San Jose is Costa Rica’s cultural heart. Spend time wandering through the artisan stalls of the main Plaza de la Cultura, with plenty of time to stop for a refresco (smoothie) and to do some people watching.
  • Lend a hand at a farmstay outside of Santa Rosa de Pocosol, and learn some homecooked recipes and techniques from the locals on a visit to the Juanilama agricultural community.
  • Marvel at the size and stature of the Arenal Volcano on the horizon, perhaps taking a soak and relaxing in La Fortuna’s lavaheated thermal springs.
  • Try to spot the elusive resplendent quetzal when you’re exploring Monteverde’s steamy cloud forests. Better yet, why not consider a jungle zipline to get high in the sky?
The Costa Rica Experience tour starts and ends in San Jose. It is an active and outdoor trip that takes 9 days taking you through Arenal, San Jose, Quepos and 3 other destinations in Costa Rica. Costa Rica Experience is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Discover a region of natural diversity, cultural riches and laidback vibes on a nine-day jungle jaunt through Costa Rica. Thanks to a longstanding tradition of preserving its natural assets, much of the country’s primary rainforest still stands, opportunities for nature-based adventures are endless and the beaches on both coasts are nothing short of picturesque. Kick back in the rustic beach town of Quepos, explore the steamy cloud forests of Monteverde, and get to know the locals by lending a hand on a rural farmstay near Santa Rosa de Pocosol. Explore the depths of this colourful and vibrant country with plenty of time to make this trip your own.

“It was such a beautiful experience. Very cold but so amazing!! The trek was a bit challenging at times especially with the extreme weather conditions but what can you expect it is patagonia. Camping out in tents was a fun experience. Overall a very good trip!”
