Experience the pura vida on a tropical trip in Costa Rica. Race through the treetops on a zipline and watch as the jungle whizzes past in a vibrant, emerald blur. Children of all ages will love a canopy bridge walk through misty cloud forests, blanketed in the chatter of monkey and jewel-toned birds. Back on the ground, you might choose to swim under turquoise waterfalls or even take an intrepid hike to see an active volcano.
Wildlife abounds in this biodiverse hotspot; keep your eyes peeled for jaguar and caiman, sloths and toucan as you trek on rainforest trails.
In Tortuguera, you’ll have the opportunity to take beach walks after sunset, entranced as you watch sea turtle hatching under a blanket of stars and racing across the sand to the safety of the sea. You can take to the waves yourself, scuba diving next to darting pods of dolphin and gently drifting whale shark; you’ll be in awe when you see speckled manta ray gracefully flying through the water.
