Costa Rica 9-Day Multisport Adventure

Looking for the most active and adventurous trip Costa Rica has to offer?  Look no further!  Our exclusive multi-sport adventure hits all three of the best places to adventure in Central America. The warm tropical sun awaits you! 

Journey deep into an eco-paradise where steamy volcanic ranges and tropical rain forests filled with wildlife meet a coastline washed by white ocean surf. On our multi-sport adventure, travel Costa Rica's remote byways by sea kayak, river raft, and on foot.

We'll start off in the Caribbean sea kayaking on the tranquil jungle waterways and hidden lagoons of Tortuguero National Park - a unique, exciting way to discover the rainforest's wonders of Costa Rica.  More paddling adventures lie ahead: a rafting trip on Costa Rica's top river run, the beautiful Río Pacuare. Pounding its way from one whitewater rapid to another, the Pacuare is one of the world's best wilderness experiences in Costa Rica. Then it’s off to sea kayaking, rafting, sea kayaking and hiking fun in the wilderness of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano. Our small group size allows us to travel easily and intimately through a country that has made farsighted decisions to protect their ecosystem and rain forests in a world where they are rapidly vanishing.
