Natural Wonders of Costa Rica with Guatemala & Manuel Antonio

About Costa Rica

Grab your camera and get ready for a wonderful vacation to Guatemala and Costa Rica! In Antigua, Guatemala, step back in history as you explore the ruins of churches and monasteries along with restored colonial buildings. Perhaps pick up a unique Guatemalan handicraft to bring back home from the open-air Indian market. Then travel to Costa Rica and witness bountiful wildlife in their natural habitat, enjoy relaxing dips in ecothermal hot springs, and learn about the Costa Rican culture.

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. 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 and hear the volcano’s grumbling as you soak in the ecothermal hot springs. 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.

Also spend a couple of days in Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the lushest places in Costa Rica. Spend time on its white-grey sand 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. So be sure to grab your swimsuit and prepare yourself for the trip of a lifetime—a trip filled with wildlife, scenic waterways, tropical rainforests, spectacular beaches, and knowledgeable guides to help you learn about Guatemala and Costa Rica.
