It’s not the only country in Central America to offer adventurous vacations, but it’s certainly one of the most popular. Fueled by a great tourism slogan “No Artificial Ingredients”
Costa Rica was one of the first out of the gate years ago with a safe and well-organized infrastructure for then-unknown attractions like zip-lining.
Fast forward to 2015, and zip-lining, offering the ultimate bird’s-eye view of the forest with a quick zip across the treetops, by cable, is just one of many eco-adventure activities available in this tiny country. High-flying options include Sky Trek and Sky Tram, both at Arenal Volcano. Sky Tram offers views of the forest, volcano and lake from the secure confines of a gondola, while Sky Trek brings you back down via 2.7 kilometers of cables. There’s even a Sky Trek Night Tour for the truly adventurous. Of course, Sky Tram is also an option for the return trip.
