A Forest Adventure
To speak of forests is to speak about Costa Rica. The Pura Vida country is filled with luscious nature, where you can spot amazing and unique flora and fauna. There are several places in Costa Rica to experience the rainforest during your stay and vacation.
You’d think of yourself as hiking or walking through various paths and trails exploring the amazingness of the rainforest, but how about seeing it from above? Hop into an Aerial Tram for amazing views of the Braulio Carrillo National Park and spot the wildlife that live and feed off the trees, birds and monkeys galore!
The rainforest is just one of the many ecosystems to visit. If you ever thought your biology class at school was boring, that is because you only read about it on your schoolbooks, but experiencing it will completely change your mind, as you inhale and exhale pure oxygen from the marvels of Mother Nature.
From San Jose to iconic Arenal, hiking around the majestic views of the Arenal Volcano will suffice even the most demanding of explorers in the world.
However, this is just hallway the experience, when we mention forests, Costa Rica is also home of one of the world’s most interesting types of forests: the cloud forest. So, will you be walking in clouds? Perhaps no, as they are not as dense to support your weight, but you will surely enjoy the diversity of temperatures that surround this ecosystem at Monteverde and relish on various unique and endangered species of birds. Some of the most popular activities in this area are visiting many reserves like the Monteverde Reserve and the Santa Elena Cloud Forest, as well as night walks to discover “creepy” creatures around or horseback riding to a magnificent sunset.
No visit to Costa Rica is complete without visiting the Pacific coast of this country. Exploring Manuel Antonio or visiting Jaco, some sunny days at Guanacaste, the northern area, or maybe going down to the Osa Peninsula, whichever you choose, you’re about to have the time of your life!
Back in San Jose to relax for a final night at your hotel as you get ready to jump on a plane back home, filled with excitement of the new discoveries, energy for what’s ahead, and unforgettable memories to share for a lifetime about your one and only amazing Costa Rican Vacation.
