Additional Information

Our Rainforest & Beach Adventure Vacation Package has been designed for those who wish to visit beautiful Costa Rica but don’t have a lot of vacation time or a large budget. This itinerary combines the excitement of the 2 most popular adventure activities offered in Costa Rica: zip lining and white water rafting, as well as some beach relaxation. The white water rafting tour takes place at the Pacuare River, which is considered as one of the 5 best rivers in the world for this activity, featuring several rapids class III-IV and the best views of any other tour offered in all Costa Rica, including waterfalls that fall into the river, impressive canyons, big mountains covered with rainforests and overall great scenery thruought the whole tour (we recommend that those who want to be a part on this trip had done white water rafting at least once in their lives, because the Pacuare River could be a little-too rough sometimes). The zip lining takes place in the lush Rainforest Mountains near the Manuel Antonio National Park area (the rainforest is considered by us as the absolutely best place for the practice of this adventure sport). This exciting canopy adventure is more than just zip lining, it includes a total of 18 platforms, 10 zip lines, 2 rappel lines, 1 suspension bridge, 1 Tarzan swing, a butterfly farm and a serpentarium.

This adventure vacation package also includes experiencing a little bit of our Costa Rican Culture and observation of our wildlife; we do both of this things on your private transfer from San Jose to Manuel Antonio Beach. On that particular transfer we stop in small local towns for you to take pictures, as well as stopping in a large fruit stand for you to learn about our unique tropical fruits. As for the wildlife, we stop at the Tarcoles River where we normally see many crocodiles, from a safe distance of course; we also stop near Jaco Beach to search for scarlet macaws, the most beautiful birds of Costa Rica (we see them 85-90% of the times); and once closer to Manuel Antonio National Park, we search for several other species, like white faced capuchin, howler and squirrel monkeys, sloths, coatis, etc. However, if you are not much into observing wildlife, but would rather for example to have an authentic Costa Rican beer in a local place, we would be happy to take care of these types of requests for you, remember, this transfer is private and we can accommodate to do whatever your interests are. By the way, this also applies to the rest of the vacation package, we can customize everything else, like your accommodations (we could do upgrades), places to be visited, activities, etc.
