This trip is a standout for the great diversity of habitats you’ll explore, including cloud forest, mangrove forest, the Central Pacific coastal rain forest (with all its waterfalls!), the “Whale Tail” spit of Playa Uvita, Golfo Dulce’s inland fjord and tropical rainforest, the Osa Peninsula rain forest, and the Central Valley’s coffee growing region. Diverse habitats means diverse wildlife and birds, of course, which you’ll make the most of by traveling in the company of a
professional naturalist guide and driver. You stay nicely removed from the usual tourist trail, deepening your exposure to, understanding of, and connection with Costa Rica’s diverse wildlife and environments.
Your four superb ecolodges are gracious, harmonious, and exquisitely integrated into the surrounding nature. Most are located on large private reserves with miles of trails and close access to notable national parks including Los Quetzales, Marino Ballena, Piedras Blancas, and Corcovado.
