Natural beauty and spectacular rapids
The Pacuare River is considered one of the top five rivers in the world for rafting. Its natural beauty and spectacular rapids are gorgeous. This river borders the Talamanca mountain range, where the Cabecar Indians live and it is home to unique wildlife in the world. Along the river you will stop for a small rest and fuel yourself with some fruits and beverages. Rafting will be for approximately 3 hours. At the end of the exciting adventure, you will arrive to the take out point and the Operations Center. Here you may change into dry clothes and use the bathrooms. Lunch will be served at a restaurant along the way. Afterwards you will be transferred to Arenal.
The Lost Canyon is waiting for you!
Come see the lush Costa Rican rainforest from a different perspective! Get wet and wild hiking through the forest and rappelling down waterfalls! This day is full of adventure and is the perfect way to get to know the real Costa Rican jungle! At the canyoning tour you’ll be jumping into pools, sliding down a natural water slide, sitting under waterfalls, pulling yourself up some rocks and helping yourself down others.
As you head toward your destination, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, feel the climate change as a cool breeze takes over from the humidity. Your journey takes you high up into the cloud forest, an area with generally less rain. This forest, with a higher altitude and more humidity creates a somewhat surreal atmosphere as clouds take over the forest. Enjoy, as you witness one of the most exceptional wildlife sanctuaries in the New World Tropics.
Fly through the top of the trees!
Today you are going to discover the cloud forest in a very special way – first you will start with the walkways tour, which is a combination of trails and seven bridges where you will have the opportunity to explore all the levels of the cloud forest, starting from the ground and getting to the top of the great trees. After completing the walkways tour the guides will prepare you for the zip line course; we can now zip through our first zip line. After this you get to the rappel part, where you will have the opportunity to descend vertically 15 meters. We continue to fly through the top of the trees by zipping through three more zip lines, which takes us to the “Tarzan Swing”, one of the most exiting parts of the tour!
Tamarindo is perfect for all travelers. The beach is known worldwide as a surfing destination but and offers neighboring beaches that are also great for walks and exploring, such as Playa Grande, Playa Conchal or Playa Langosta. The golden sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets and upbeat nightlife, cafés and restaurants are an attraction to this area. Take a kayak tour, horseback ride along beautiful beaches, or zip through the canopy of the tropical dry forest. As a Blue Flag beach, Tamarindo is also ideal for relaxing, walking, as well as visiting the mangrove swamp.
Take your time and relax
Tamarindo, with its glorious beaches, offers outstanding surfing opportunities for beginners, intermediate and experienced surfers. Sport fishing tours are a great way to get out into these blue waters for the chance to catch Sailfish, Yellow Fin Tuna and Dorado. Watch the majestic leatherback turtles come upon shore to nest at Playa Grande or enjoy an early bird watching tour.
