Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Carara National Park

Unveil the complex ecology of the flora and fauna at the Rainforest of Carara National Park. We will hike through the National Park Trails ranging from secondary forest to primary and old-growth forest. The canopy will reach more than 40m high with huge wild-cashew trees and figs watching us from above. This worldwide acclaimed destination for birdwatchers is also full of other vertebrates like mammals (monkeys, agoutis, deers...), amphibians, reptiles, and a myriad of invertebrates dwelling on the forest litter. You will be in the shoes of an XVIII century naturalist, asking yourself important questions about nature, ecology and contemplating in-depth the magic of the tropics.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At:

Tarcoles river is regarded as the most polluted River basin in Central America, one recognition that we costaricans feel very ashamed of. However, we will navigate the Tarcoles river mouth into a mangrove forest where the wetlands will show us all their biodiversity and hopefully start changing the fate of this wonderful place. Bring your binoculars because we will spot dozens of amazing birds, crocodiles, and other types of lizards on this relaxing but exciting experience with local boatmen.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At:

We will finish our day with a tropical beachfront landscape. We'll listen to the sound of waves calming our spirit and of course, dip our feet into the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
