A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Diversity from All Angles
When you arrive in Costa Rica, the warm welcome of the Ticos makes quite a first impression. The country is immensely diverse, from active volcanoes and geothermal springs, to the blackwater canals of the “Venice of the tropics”. But you are not constrained to the boundaries of the land. Oh no! This time the sky’s the limit. Or so it seems as you jump out of a plane to make a more precise survey of Costa Rica. Not a bad start!
You have tasted the sweet skies of this Paradise. The compass or your adventure now turns to the depths. You experience a true pelagic playground from the unique perspective of a submersible. You spend time with researchers and marine biologists that give you privileged insights into the underwater wonders of Costa Rica. Your Oceanic adventures are far from over. Spinner dolphins put on quite a show, as you follow huge pods on your own private yacht. You wonder… could it be possible to swim with them in their natural habitat, completely free, completely wild? This is a dream come true, no other way to put it. Read more
The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is remote and inaccessible. You actually have to fly there, to the village of Tortuguero. You venture into the jungle with blackwater canals as your only road. They call this “The Venice of the Tropics”. The wildlife encounters are numerous and include caimans and spider monkeys. Your local, expert guide has a deep knowledge of the region, wild and untouched. As you paddle on the murky waters you realise you are in one of the most pristine places on the planet, where only adventurers may go.
In the Land of Hospitality
You have spent the last days exploring Costa Rica and enjoying its diversity. You now make your way to the rural areas, where the charming and welcoming nature of the locals soon turns into another kind of adventure. You saddle your horse and ride alongside your hosts. They are eager to share their culture, through their dances and their games. You are surrounded by friends in the last stretch of your adventure.
