Family Costa Rica: Jungle walks and turtle spotting

14 days from £2503pp
 

Private Journey

 
Costa Rica is one of the most peaceful and stable countries in the world:  and the people are among the friendliest in Latin America. The comprehensive network of national parks with their extensive trails is always very accessible.  In line with its love and respect for the great outdoors, Costa Rica also has been at the vanguard of adventure tourism, with lots of activities on offer from zip-lining to white-water rafting. 

The tiny country is bursting with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna, and this private family journey gives you all the opportunity to explore its national parks in an active way. Begin your family adventure with a guided waterborne exploration of the Caribbean jungle channels and mangrove forests to see wildlife in the Tortuguero reserve. Later, scramble over hanging bridges suspended over waterfalls and forest and recover with a bathe in naturally heated thermal springs in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano. Move on to another wildlife experience in a Pacific-coast fixed safari camp, and end the holiday on the sunny beaches of popular resort at Manuel Antonio.
