Weather
Costa Rica enjoys a nearly perfect tropical climate. The average temperature is 72° F in the highlands and ranges from the high 60s to the low 90s in the lowlands. There is a rainy season (or green season) from May to November when various parts of the country experience higher amounts of precipitation, and a dry summer season generally lasting from December through April. As we are in the tropics, rainfall is a possibility during any month of the year making adequate raingear a necessity.

We look forward to having you join us for the trip of a lifetime! Why wait? Space is limited, reserve your adventure today.

Note on Itinerary

Although we do our best to adhere to the schedule listed above, this itinerary is subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control.

Overview


Spend eight days reveling in all the adventure this eco-paradise has to offer.

Costa Rica is an adventure-lover’s dream. Everywhere we look, we are greeted with peaceful waterfalls, tropical rainforests and stretches of ocean surf. These are the perfect conditions for ziplining, rafting, canyoning, cycling and hiking. A leader in wildlife and sustainability initiatives, Costa Rica is rich with interesting creatures. Our guides use their training as naturalists to point out white-faced capuchins, howler monkeys and maybe even a sloth camouflaged in a tree.

Our journey begins at Arenal Volcano National Park, where we spend three days hiking volcanos, canyoning deep in the tropical rainforest and ziplining high above the jungle canopy. Get a glimpse of the majestic Arenal volcano and then soak up natural thermal hot springs with fellow adventurers after the day’s explorations. Take in the wild and beautiful Rio Pacuare for two days of heart-pounding whitewater rafting. Spend our final day cycling through the quaint towns and fertile slopes of the Turrialba region.
