Costa Rica Adventure Holidays

Paradise personified for the many who visit, Costa Rica's charm, beauty and lazy pace of life belies the amount of action packed adventure found here! An adventure holiday is as bio diverse as the country itself - take your pick from white-water rafting through deepest jungle, travel on horseback through tropical forests, discover canopy zip wires that fly you through cloud forests, and trek up magnificent Mount Arenal Volcano... and afterwards allow the 'Tico' way of life to lure you down to the beach - for it really is 'Pura Vida'!

Adventure holidays in Costa Rica

Costa Rica was perhaps one of the first countries to take adventure tourism and run with it. The country has truly made it its own and now it's hard to imagine visiting Costa Rica and not taking part in some sort of adventurous activity, whether it's zip lining, white-water rafting, peering over hanging bridges or surfing.

From the Atlantic to the Pacific, Costa Rica crams in a lot. One of the most biodiverse areas on the planet, the country is also famed for eco-tourism. It's hard not to have an animal encounter here where sloths literally hang right outside your lodge front door. From coffee plantations to thick cloud forest and beaches to volcanoes, the purity of the nature here will astound you.

Even if you can't decide what adventure to take on, the country is relatively easy to explore and its small size means you can fit lots into just one holiday. Climb a volcano, swoosh over the tree tops and head down the Pacuare river in a raft in one day? It's manageable in Costa Rica.
