They say that fortune favors the bold, and nowhere is this more true than in Latin America's adventure capital: La Fortuna, Costa Rica. Channel your inner explorer with one of three packages—Jungle & Volcano, Wildlife Lovers, or Jungle & Beach—from Costa Rica Descents.
Jungle & Volcano: After landing in San Jose, you'll transfer to Hacienda Pozo Azul, a 2,000-acre working ranch where you'll spend the next two nights in a tent suite. On day two, you'll tour the Tirimbina Biological Preserve, where you'll learn about chocolate production while hiking across suspension bridges and through a former cacao growing plot. Next, it's off to La Paz Waterfall Gardens, home to more than 100 species of animals. On day three, you'll head to Arenal Volcano Inn (or similar hotel), at the base of Arenal Volcano, where you'll spend the next three nights. During your stay here, you'll raft Class III and IV rivers, learn to rappel, tour an organic farm, explore the treetops on a canopy tour, hike the volcano, and soak five days' worth of sore muscles at Los Lagos Hot Springs.
Wildlife Lovers: This package begins with a mellow river safari down the Peñas Blancas River, where you'll spot tropical birds, monkeys, poison dart frogs, caimans, and other exotic wildlife. At night, you'll stay at the Arenal Volcano Inn (or similar hotel). The next day, you'll take a guided hike to nearby hot springs, which is followed by dinner for two. Finally, get ready to paddle down Class II rapids, then tour an organic farm tour.
Jungle & Beach: You'll spend the first three days in La Fortuna rafting the Sarapiquí and Balsa rivers, hiking and down-climbing through a secluded rain forest, rappelling down a waterfall, and paddling Class III and IV rapids. At night, you'll retire to the Arenal Volcano Inn (or similar hotel). The package also includes a tour and lunch at an organic farm. Then it's off to Manuel Antonio National Park for a two-night stay at Hotel Inn on the Park. A full-day nature tour, complete with a bilingual, government-licensed naturalist, takes guests through the entire park. You'll spot monkeys, coatis, sloths, exotic birds, and lizards along the way, and at the end you'll get a chance to bask on the beautiful white-sand beaches that punctuate the park.
