Costa Rica’s ecosystems contain 5% of the living organisms on our planet, and the government has protected this resource through the development of national parks and reserves. The terrain, flora, and fauna are some of the most diverse and beautiful in the World and this adventure will get you up close and personal with local ecosystems. You will explore rainforests, cloud forests, volcanoes, waterfalls, tropical islands, beaches, coral reefs, crocodiles, coffee plantations, and amazing birding territory along the Sarapiqui River and Tortuguero Canals! Not to mention, you’ll immerse yourself in a friendly and fun native culture. Costa Rica is the destination for ecotourism. Join us on the trip, and you will find wild places, great adventures, friendly people, beautiful ecosystems, and food to die for.
