Costa Rica is famous for its award-winning beaches with Playa Hermosa Bay winning the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice (2016) award as one of the Top 5 beaches in the Country. The glorious rainforest is also a remarkable experience to explore with its enchanting bird and wildlife.
The best way to explore this remarkable country is to take a tour with Costour, voted No 1 best outdoor adventure tours in Costa Rica by TripAdvisor reviewers. Approximately 2 miles from the resort, the team at Costour will guide you through an exciting day of adventure. Choose from a wide range of excursions from discovering the award-winning beaches including the famous crescent shaped Playa Flamingo beach to snorkelling in the turquoise waters at Playa Concha.
Visitors love Costours Hot Springs day tour on the slopes of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. Your trip to the volcano will take you along winding roads through the rainforest passing through some of the most spectacular countryside. Jump and splash in the many hot springs, rejuvenate in a mud bath and take remarkable photos of the abundance of flowers. You may be lucky enough to spot a roaming jaguar or hear the howls of the noisy Howler Monkey amongst the trees.
An exhilarating day of adventure can also be had with Diamante Eco Adventure Park awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence (2016). Take to the air by riding on the longest ocean view zip line in Central America (almost 1 mile long!) and try the Tarzan Swing or climb the hanging bridge over hungry crocodiles. After an inclusive lunch, head off to the beach to enjoy paddle-boarding, kayaking and snorkelling or if you prefer to explore then take a guided nature trail hike.
Costa Rica creates a sense of admiration, rejuvenation and memories that will remain special for a lifetime in the minds of its visitors.
