Costa Rica 360° Coast to Coast
Costa Rica 360° Coast to Coast
The trip in a nutshell
Minivan with local driver.
Attention travellers to Costa Rica, it is time to join the ticos (the Costa Ricans), to slow down and immerse ourselves in their corner of paradise! What will you see? Get ready to hike trails that lead to waterfalls in the jungle, explore mangrove channels by kayak, encounter the wildest nature and learn to recognise its sounds and noises. On our tour of Costa Rica, you will finally get back to what life should be, so when it's time to say goodbye to this incredible country, you will take a little bit of pura vida home with you.
Some traveling days of the trip are quite intense, with several long transfers by minivan and boat (all worth it for the beauty of Tortuguero National Park). They're necessary to explore all the most fascinating parts of the country. Compact luggage is obligatory, as you will travel by private minivan for the entire journey, changing accommodation 7 times.
A good level of fitness is recommended to fully enjoy the trip, as a day of rafting is included and there are several optional activities, including trekking and surfing.
