Active Costa Rica and Nicaragua: Rivers and volcanoes

16 days from £3,356pp
 

Private Journey

 
The pleasant climate varied landscapes of volcanoes, lakes, fast-flowing rivers, and palm-fringed beaches combine to make Costa Rica and Nicaragua very attractive to outdoor adventure seekers. Costa Rica has long had a network of accessible national parks with extensive hiking trails, as well as offering adventure activities, from zip-lining to white-water rafting. Nicaragua is new to this kind of development but is gaining a reputation for responsible tourism with eco-lodges and plenty to do in the open air, including biking and horse-riding.
 
This holiday will suit those who want to try out a medley of different active adventures as a means of enjoying the sumptuous scenery. This holiday gives you the opportunity to ride the rapids, bike round an island, climb a volcano and hike along jungle trails. Following all this exertion you have a well deserved break on the sweeping sands of a Pacific bay.
