Although Costa Rica has been a popular destination for years, there are still many parts of the country that are way off the beaten path and offer authentic adventures. Costa Rica is frequented by honeymooners, families, retirees, couples and backpackers alike as it offers something for everyone. A wide variety of experiences and accommodations are available from small eco-lodges to all-inclusive beach resorts and everything in between.
Costa Rica is an easy trip from any city in the U.S. or Canada to one Costa Rica’s two international airports. With some of the worlds best beaches , diverse and accessible wildlife, numerous volcanoes, the highest and fastest zip lines through the rainforest canopy, luxurious hot springs, scenic whitewater rafting, tubing, waterfall rappelling, scuba diving, sailing, snorkeling, gourmet dining, world class spas, and, of course, first class accommodations Costa Rica offers something for every traveler. There’s only a one or two hour time difference between New York and San Jose, Wifi is readily available, medical care is relatively advanced, the dollar is strong and you can get by speaking English.
White Water River Rafting: No matter your level of experience we have a river for you. Everything from a river float on Penas Blancas to class IV Pacuare River that is rated as on of the five top rivers in the world for rafting. If you are in the middle then we suggest the class II III Sarapiqui River
You can raft the Pacuare and overnight on the river bank at the Pacuare Lodge, an upscale jungle resort that is only accessible via whitewater raft, earning it the title of one of the top unique lodges of the world by National Geographic. The river rapids on the way to the lodge were class III and were fun, but the class III and IV rapids on the way out were a whole other exhilarating experience.Waterfall Rappelling, (also called canyoneering). This is the original WET N’Wild. After being harnessed up and fitted for helmets, you are given a safety talk and then head up the mountain and began your canyoneering experience. You follow a river deep in the jungle and rappell down several waterfalls, the highest being 200 feet.
Hanging Bridges at Arenal Volcano and Monteverde Cloud Forest are always popular with travelers to Costa Rica. You see the forest from a different perspective looking down on birds, coatis and a sloth and watch howler monkeys in action. You will learn a lot about the flora and fauna of the area and see some breathtaking waterfalls.
This is the ultimate zip line tour. Talk about a rush… This is it.Begin with a gondola ride to the treetops (4,100 feet) and then zip along several incredible cables. The highest is 656 feet above the forest floor and the longest is 2,493 feet long. Guides help you get hooked up with professional gear. After you soar above the rainforest canopy at speeds of over 55 MPH the guides will again help you unhook at each platform. This is high adrenalin adventure. If the cables are wet from the rain you are really lucky as speeds on “Big Daddy” can reach 60 mph. This is the true definition of a rush.
If you are flying out of San Jose you may like to enjoy the world famous Waterfall Gardens & Peace Lodge, This is a lovely spot with adventure & beauty that will not easily be forgotten. Highly recommended for honeymoons and romance get-a-ways.
