About Costa Rica • The country is bestowed with an intense array of biodiversity and environmental attractions • majestic volcanoes • misty cloud forests • stunning river valleys • hundreds of beaches along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts.
What is this trip? • Going on a tour is not a “vacation”. It’s a trip full of activity. • This is an adventure tour. • You must be able to travel through “tough terrain”. • You don’t have to be “in shape” but you have to tolerate walking/climbing at times.
