Volcanoes, Rain Forests and Costa Rica's Best!

This trip is an in-depth exploration of the rainforests and volcanoes of Costa Rica. This trip will focus on the mountains, rivers and natural beauty of the Costa Rican countryside. This will allow us more time for wildlife viewing, hiking, and other eco-activities, as well as some great whitewater rafting!

Traveling to Costa Rica is an opportunity to escape the stress and tedium of the daily world and discover a country that is proud of its ecological preservation. With only .03% of the planet's surface, Costa Rica contains over 5% of all life forms on earth. In nine days we will show you the vast richness of the country's natural habitat.

We will see San Jose, the capital city; Tortuguero whose canals are likened to the Amazon river; Sarapiqui, a wildlife sanctuary and Arenal Volcano which erupts 3 to 4 times every hour and is surrounded by its famous hot springs.

A plant originating in Mesoamerica with an extraordinarily rich history, cacao, or chocolate, was one of the most important products of the Maya and Aztec, as well as many other Central American cultures.

The tour includes a guided hike across the Tirimbina suspension bridge to a cacao plantation that is used for ecological research. We will also visit a forested section of the plantation where you can observe forest species of cacao and learn how the product originally developed there. During the hike, the natural and cultural history of the cacao tree will be explained in great detail. Onsite, you will learn about the methods for processing cacao into chocolate (harvesting, fermentation, drying, and milling). During the demonstration you will have the opportunity to taste the fruit of the cocoa tree as well as taste different types of chocolate, made from organic chocolate grown by the Association of Amazilla Women of the Caribbean (a group of rural women from Pueblo Nuevo de Guacimo dedicated to the production of organic chocolate).

We will enjoy lunch at the hotel and transfer by land to La Fortuna town where the impressive and active Arenal Volcano is located. We will check in at our luxurious hotel with plenty of free time to enjoy the hotel's pools, spa, sauna, and jacuzzis. Dinner is included at a local restaurant in La Fortuna.


Day 7 - Arenal Adventure Day
Costa Rica gay adventure - cavingOption 1: The Hanging Bridges. These bridges are considered one of the most beautiful attractions near the Arenal Volcano. This is for the nature lover, you can enjoy 15 bridges from 5 to 100 meters long, whose friendly design takes you along 3 km of rain forest. The circuit of interpretive trails is built with paving blocks to prevent slipping. The bridges are built of aluminum, galvanized steel and concrete, to ensure maximum security for our visitors. The bridges were designed by structural engineers with the most demanding safety margins in the world.

Our tour will be guided by a local naturalist, who will open the doors of a fascinating and colorful tropical rain forest world. The imposing vistas of the Volcano that you will see from the hanging bridges and the bridges themselves make for a perfect combination and an unforgettable experience. After the tour we will return to our lodge for lunch.

Option 2: The Venado Caves. The caves were formed during the Miocene period, 15 to 20 million years ago. For most of history the caves were under the sea, but due to tectonic movements they surfaced evidence of the sea can be seen in fossils in the cave walls. Limestone rocks, stalactites, stalagmites and corals, form most of the caves. The whimsical stone formations are formed by the underground river. The length of the tour into the caves is 1 ½ hour, during this time we will find marine fossils, bats, spiders and cave crickets. Because we will have to walk through the river and waterfalls from the upper part of the cave, we recommend our customers to take light clothes, hiking shoes and extra clothes to be able to change when they finish the exploration of the caves. Equipment for the tour will be provided to each client.

In the afternoon, we will visit Fortuna Town with free time to spend on our own. Ice cream shops, souvenir stores, churches and other interesting attractions are available during this visit.
