BOW Costa Rica - 

    Wild and Off the the Beaten Path

February 16-24, 2016

  • Description:

    Take the chill out of your bones this winter and come with us to explore the wild and untamed world of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula with a group of fun and adventurous women led by an expert Tico guide. You have not been to Costa Rica until you have been to the Osa Peninsula! Visited by only a handful of travelers to Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula is on the southwest corner of the country and one of the few places in the world where all three species of monkeys, scarlet macaws, big cats, and tapirs still roam…wild. National Geographic named the Osa Peninsula one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth and now is your chance to experience it! Most locations are accessible only by plane, boat, kayak, or by foot!

    • Wildlife of course! See and learn about monkeys, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
    • Feed sloths, pet a porcupine, and shake hands with a spider monkey at a wildlife sanctuary.
    • Learn about lowland rainforest ecology. – Hint, the plants steal the show!
    • Glamp at the edge of two National Parks in raised platform tents and eco-lodges.
    • Go kayaking in hidden mangroves to see reclusive birds, and possibly crocodiles!
    • Learn to make your own coconut oil!
    • Help empower local women as part of cultural exchange with a local NGO.
    • Experience a 50 minute scenic flight in prop plane over Costa Rica’s wild coastline.

    Space is limited to 14 participants.
