Trip Motif Hiking Walking Costa Rica Off The Beaten Path : Journey Highlights

Explore beyond the end of the road on an unhurried tropical adventure that takes you from wild Pacific beaches to a whitewater river in the rainforest. Your first base is an ocean-view lodge on the southern Pacific coast, with rainforest for exploring and deserted beaches for walking and horseback riding. Your second base is a renowned eco-lodge on the Pacuare River, surrounded by jungle rainforest full of opportunities for adventure and exploration. The float into and out of the lodge is considered one of the top river experiences in the world. The Pacuare flows through lush jungle gorges sheltering jaguars, monkeys, and tropical birds, and features thrilling rapids descending through steep canyons and waterfalls pouring down through lush vegetation. This is a great family adventure, with no prior river experience required. Find the true meaning of pura vida for yourself on this memorable journey.

  • Rainforest nature: Your lodges are surrounded by rainforest preserves where you can discover wildly unique and exotic birds, wildlife, trees, and plants.
  • Active fun: Hike, raft, ride horses, spot birds and wildlife, and zip-line in rainforest and beach surroundings.
  • World-class rafting: Ride the remote Pacuare River through lush jungle gorges with waterfalls, rocking through fun whitewater rapids. No experience necessary!
