Costa Rica tours offer travelers the chance to experience some of the most stunning natural scenes in the world. Its largely untarnished landscape makes it the perfect place for adventure travel enthusiasts, beach lovers and bird-watchers. There are numerous locations from which to explore its natural appeal, but Rincón de la Vieja National Park is among the best. Located in the northwest corner of Costa Rica, this breathtaking World Heritage Site will be sure to leave a lasting impression.
The fist thing you'll notice upon arrival in the park is the majestic Rincon de la Vieja. An active volcano, the mountain stands more than 6,000 feet tall and looms large over the large expanse of the park. It's volcanic activity is what gives the destination much of its appeal, as hot springs, geysers and vents are spread throughout much of the area. Exploring the region with the help of a guide - whether on horseback or on foot - is the best way to experience these unusual natural formations.
Aside from being in the shadow of an active volcano, Rincón de la Vieja National Park is a highlight of Costa Rica tours because of its varied landscape. There are few places on earth where you can make your way from pastures, to savannah to forests, but this is one of them. As a result, it is home to an impressive diversity of wildlife, many of which you can run into during your time there.
Rincón de la Vieja National Park is particularly appealing to bird-watchers. The park is home to an estimated 300 avian species, from the Bobo bird and the mountain Linnet to the Tucancillo and the Pavon.

Bask on sandy white beaches, snorkel with sharks and stingrays, and enjoy the relaxed pace of life on Ambergris Caye. Take the relaxation up a notch, when you board your private catamaran Aubisque, for a 3 night sail around the Cayes.
The centuries peel away as you trek through dense jungle to reveal the 3,000-year-old ruins of the ancient Mayan civilizations laid out before you, and your heart leaps as you reach out and touch the cold stone remains of a lost world.
