Natural Wonders of Costa Rica with Manuel Antonio

About Costa Rica

Grab your camera and swimsuit, and get ready for a marvelous vacation to Costa Rica! Witness bountiful wildlife in their natural habitat, enjoy relaxing dips in ecothermal hot springs, and learn about the Costa Rican culture on this thrilling adventure. Among the many highlights of this tour is Tortuguero National Park, where you’ll take a boat ride along remote, unspoiled sections of the park to view wildlife. Your guide will look out for the wildlife—including freshwater turtles, egrets, toucans, and monkeys—so you can sit back, relax, and take plenty of pictures. </BR></BR>Another tour highlight is the Arenal Volcano, considered one of the most active volcanoes in the world. You may witness the red lava streaming down the sides as you hear the volcano’s grumbling. Relax as you soak in the ecothermal hot springs and perhaps watch the lava flow down the volcano—a spectacular sight! In Monteverde, visit the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve, home to forest fauna such as jaguars, resplendent quetzal, monkeys, ocelot, and many species of birds—not to mention the large diversity of plant species. Spend a couple of days in Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the lushest places in Costa Rica. Relax on its pristine beaches lined with tropical forest, walk the park’s trails, take a sea kayak, or enjoy a canopy tour. The park has a vast diversity of wildlife, and it’s not uncommon to see iguanas and white-faced monkeys on the beach. </BR></BR>On this Costa Rica tour, you’ll also have a chance to visit local farms to learn about the local culture and industries. It’s a trip filled with wildlife, scenic waterways, tropical rainforests, spectacular beaches, and knowledgeable guides to help you learn about Costa Rica.
