Nature Tours

When you think of Costa Rica nature tours, what comes to mind? Animals. Rainforests. Cloud forests. Rivers. But also beaches and oceans.

Costa Rica is famous for our varied ecosystems, as well as our plant and animal life. And for good reason: More than 25% of our land is contained in national park and private reserve. National Geographic even dubbed Corcovado National Park, “the most biologically diverse place on earth.”

Nature tours take you into the most wild, the most wonderful, the most stunning scenery you may ever see. Trek into a misty cloud forest, where epiphytes, lichens and orchids cover every surface. Hike through lowland rainforest, where sloths hang from leafy trees and the distance echoes with the hoots of howler monkeys. Paddle through a river gorge, where emerald moss climbs every cliff.

Costa Rica is a natural wonderland, and a nature tour is your ticket into paradise.
