Satisfy your need for adventure with an exciting tour of magnificent Costa Rica!   From exotic to extreme, there is a Costa Rica adventure tour to satisfy every traveler's wildest desires.

Costa Rica is the second smallest of the Central American countries, bordered by the Pacific Ocean in the West and the Atlantic Ocean in the East.  While small in size this country is big on adventure, with beaches, jungles and forests to explore.  The climate and geography of Costa Rica create a warm and hospitable retreat for tourists of all ages.

Cost Rica is famous for its lush green forests and abundant wildlife. The moment you step into the rainforest, you'll encounter fascinating creatures like howler monkeys, exotic birds, frogs, and many others.  This is why Costa Rica adventure tours are so popular.

When you plan a Costa Rica adventure tour, you can look forward to a spectacular array of activities to see and enjoy.   Your tour package may include white-water rafting, sport fishing, wildlife sightings or a hike through the cloud forest.  Other plans offer rainforest tours, biking through tropical plantations and sightseeing at exotic locales.  Be sure that your Costa Rica adventure tour includes a visit to one of world's most important nesting places for the green sea turtles, located along both shorelines.

Those with an adventurous spirit can find the excitement they crave with a Costa Rica adventure tour featuring whitewater rafting.  This country offers first-rate rafting opportunities for beginners and experts alike.  Spend a day on the rapids, or book a multi-day trip for the ultimate whitewater challenge.  Your rafting adventure in Costa Rica is limited only by how long you can endure the thrill and excitement of this extreme adventure.

If whitewater rafting is not your thing, there are still plenty of adventures in store in beautiful Costa Rica.  You can choose to kayak the remote rainforest creeks of Tortuguero National Park.  Does your idea of fun involve wheels?  Try an adrenaline-pumping bike ride to the flanks of the Arenal Volcano.  Take your vacation experience to new heights as you view the rainforest while perched on a platform 120 feet above the ground.  Or, indulge in the serenity of a quiet hike through the tropical rainforest.

As mentioned, Costa Rica provides a vital natural nesting habitat for the massive Atlantic Green sea turtles.  As you stroll the coastlines, you may spot these magnificent creatures, some weighing as much as 300 pounds.  Escorted by the most knowledgeable Tortuguero guides, you can watch as the Atlantic green sea turtle lays her lay eggs, covers her nest, and then returning to the sea.  It's a truly spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll never forget.  While extreme sports can be fun, few spectacles can make your heart race and your blood pump quite like witnessing the breathtaking beauty of nature.  The nesting ritual of the Atlantic Green sea turtle is like nothing you've ever seen, and it's rarely experienced anywhere other than the Costa Rican coastline.

If nothing more than a quiet stroll along the beaches of Costa Rica is enough excitement for you, then you'll be happy to know that there are tour packages available for you as well.  You don't have to be an extreme adventurer to enjoy an extremely marvelous time in Costa Rica.  There are adventure tours with a variety of activities, itineraries, and prices.
