Off the beaten track adventure (8 days – 7 nights)
This trip features two locations so not too much moving around, with many adventures, both on location and nearby, and also on the way between locations. Rincon de la Vieja is one of Costa Rica’s most impressive national park and volcanic areas. There is a new resort Blue River, located in a beautiful environment, with plenty to do just steps off the resort, and also beautiful hot springs ans pools to enjoy within the resort. After 3 active days, spend some well-deserved relaxing time in Playa Langosta, visiting a still authentic part of Costa Rica on the way, Cuajiniquil. Take a wildlife day trip to Palo Verde nature reserve. Like all our tours, this trip can be customized according to your wishes, time and possibilities.

This morning enjoy a fun water adventure: Tubing down a river! The tubing takes place along the famous blue-water river, Rio Celeste in the rainforest or nearby Rio Negro, depending upon the season. You will go down the river by lying on a rubber inner tube, winding around bends, and passing through calm water, white water and adrenalin pumping chutes. Apart from the adrenaline, the lush rainforest forms a picturesque periphery, through canyons and thick greenery. Following your tubing adventure continue for another adventure: Horseback ride through pastures and plantations. We’ll visit an authentic Costa Rican town to get a feel for how people live. Here begins the hike through a breathtaking private park through the rainforest. While hiking, you’ll have a chance to see highland birds which are difficult to see elsewhere. We’ll be visiting the astonishing blue river Penjamos, many cascading waterfalls and natural waterslides. There will be plenty opportunities to soak and swim in the relaxing pools.

Begin your day with the exciting canopy tour. With nine long lines, woven over parklands, across waterfalls and through the jungle, riders enjoy a zip line canopy experience exclusive to the Blue River Resort. The zip line, a network of platforms, lines and staircases, will get your adrenaline flowing. The longest line measures over 600 meters! This adventure combines a thrilling ride with a one-of-a-kind display from atop of the unique tropical ecology of the region. End your adventure with an exclamation mark! To complete your adventure, swing down from the trees like Tarzan (which really makes the zip lines seem tame.) Night at hotel Blue River Resort. Meals: B
