Experience two unique perspectives of the Costa Rican rain forest on this full-day combo tour. Your guide will pick you up from your San Jose hotel in the morning for the 1.5-hour drive to the town of Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí. Pass through a famous national park and learn about the beautiful native landscape along the way.
The adventure begins with a cruise down the mellow Rio Sarapiquí on a riverboat. Soak up the tropical surroundings as you make your way down the river, and be sure to keep an eye out for the many creatures that call this area home, including crocodiles, monkeys, exotic birds and sloths. Your naturalist guide will point out highlights during the 2-hour cruise.
Next, it’s time to take to the air along a series of ziplines that crisscross a private rain forest reserve. You’ll be outfitted with a harness and hard hat and receive a brief safety training. Then, step off the first treetop platform and feel the thrill of soaring across the canopy. Enjoy a rush of adrenaline and a bird’s-eye view of the amazing ecosystem below as you glide from tree to tree.
Once back on solid ground, savor a traditional Costa Rican lunch at the reserve. Rest and relax on the drive back to your San Jose hotel.
