INDEPENDENT TOUR OF COSTA RICA

Costa Rica is an outdoor adventurer's dream destination.  Enjoy white-water rafting, rainforest and volcano hikes, fly through the rainforest on a zip line, find some hidden waterfalls or relax on their magnificent beaches. 

The dry season from December to April (dry season) is an ideal time to visit this incredible country, but Costa Rica is a year-round destination.  During the wet season, Costa Rica's forests burst with green foliage.

Choose your own travel dates, and let us help you plan an adventure of a lifetime to this unspoiled paradise!
