Central America Travel News

Add some adventure to your tour of Costa Rica

Costa Rica has one of the most famously unspoiled natural environments of any Central American country. Whether you want to stroll along the many beautiful beaches or take a trip through its splendid rainforests, Costa Rica tours offer some of the best chances to experience nature. They are also ideal if you're looking to add a jolt of adrenaline to your travels, as there are a wide variety of ways to inject some adventure into your trip.

If you're looking for variety, Parque La Sabana is the first place you should head. Costa Rica's largest urban park, this expansive piece of land is perfect for whatever your favorite active pursuit may be. If you're looking for somewhere to go hiking during your time in the country, the park has plenty of trails to explore. It is also home to an artificial lake that is well suited to water sports enthusiasts. And while Parque La Sabana is a good place to go for adding some activity to your trip, plenty of people head to the park for simply to relax.

Costa Rica's rain forests are one of its most well-known features, and there are many different ways to experience them, but if you want to get your heart rate pumping, zip lining is your best bet. There are a number of companies that offer you the chance to see the lush forests suspended above the canopy, but regardless of which one you choose, it is sure to be a memorable experience. 

Before leaving Costa Rica, you should make a point to take advantage of the many river rafting opportunities. Nothing can get your adrenaline pumping like exploring the thrilling waters of the Pacuare River Valley.
