Before embarking on our destination, you’ll have a chance to horseback ride through pastures and plantations.

First, we’ll visit an authentic Costa Rican town to get a feel for how people live – a simple, wholesome way of life, living off the land, their homes.

Here we begin our hike through a breathtaking private park through the rainforest. Biodiversity is overwhelming here. While hiking, you’ll have a chance to see highland birds which are difficult to see elsewhere. We'll be visiting the astonishing blue river Penjamos, many cascading waterfalls and natural waterslides. You'll also see first-hand where minerals leach through the river bottom and into the water, causing the water color to turn blue. There will be plenty opportunities to soak and swim in the relaxing pools.
