Unique Natural Destinations

Costa Rica has more of its land protected as National Parks and reserves than any other country in the world. The incredible diversity of habitats packed into this tiny country mean you can explore the cloud forest around San Gerardo de Dota before breakfast, have lunch on the tropical tundra (paramo) of Cerro de la Muerte and take a walk in the lowland rain forest backing playa Barú in the afternoon.

Southern Costa Rica Eco-Adventure

One of our absolute favorites. We've traveled over 10,000 km in seventeen years but when my parents spent a couple of weeks discovering Costa Rica with us it was once in a lifetime. We wanted to make sure they saw the best of the best and this loop was a big part of what we did.
  • Bird Watching Tour at Trogon Lodge
  • Canopy Zipline Tour
  • Choice of Tree Climbing or Canopy Platform Tour

  • 3 Nights Trogon Lodge - San Gerardo de Dota
  • 3 Nights Hacienda Baru Wildlife Refuge Lodge - Dominical
