Costa Rica: Coast To Coast DCC

Visiting: Costa Rica
Trip Duration 15 Days

Costa Rica Adventure Tour

Based in comfortable, handpicked hotels, we explore Costa Rica's diverse landscapes: from unspoilt tropical rainforest to volcanic craters and golden sandy beaches. We search for the rare quetzal in the Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve and discover howler monkeys, toucans and parrots as we cruise along jungle waterways in Tortuguero. We also visit the capital city of San Jose, see the active volcano of Poas and explore the beaches and forests of Manuel Antonio National Park.

Tour Highlights

  • Nature and wildlife - The opportunity to see sloths, monkeys and brightly coloured frogs, together with some of Costa Rica's spectacular birdlife
  • Volcanoes - Admire the classic cone-shape of Arenal and the vastness of Poas
  • Tortuguero - Cruise the jungle waterways and explore the rainforest in search of abundant wildlife in this 'mini Amazon'
  • Monteverde - Search for the beautiful quetzal in this remarkable cloudforest reserve
  • Manuel Antonio - Share the stunning white-sand beaches with sun-bathing iguanas and Capuchin monkeys
