Top 5 Adventure Tours for a Costa Rica Friends’ Trip
Hang from a steel cable, suspended in a webbed harness with climbing pulleys and other safety gear, then “jump” off a platform to zip a few thousand feet at 30 to 50 mph at least 50 to 100 feet or more off the ground. Sound like a recipe for adrenaline? That’s a Costa Rica canopy zip-line tour. You get a two-for-one thrill on a zip-line tour being so close to the majority of plant and animal life that lives in the rainforest treetops.
What could be more fun than splashing down a hydro-powered rollercoaster in a warm-water tropical river? Costa Rica is one of the world’s top destinations for whitewater rafting on beautiful, wild rivers that flow through spectacular tropical wilderness.
If you’re looking for the ultimate adrenaline fix, rappelling down a torrential tropical waterfall is just the thing. Costa Rica’s rainforest is full of spectacular waterfalls ideal for safe rappelling, ranging from 50 feet to a few hundred feet.
There’s nothing quite like hiking a rainforest trail … stepping over giant buttress roots of an enormous tree, ducking below super-sized leaves and ferns, seeing monkeys scamper among tree branches, listening to exotic bird calls, and making way for thousands of leaf-cutter ants foraging on the forest floor. Costa Rica’s mountainous terrain and breathtaking tropical rainforest makes for exceptional hiking.
On the Pacific Ring of Fire, Costa Rica boasts more than 200 volcanic formations. The country’s six very active volcanoes are protected in beautiful national parks. Enormous craters, sulfurous lakes, fumaroles, occasional eruptions, and thermal springs make for exciting vacation destinations.
All five of Costa Rica’s top adventure tours can be found at Hacienda Guachipelin at the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, just 15.5 miles northeast of Guanacaste’s principal city of Liberia. The first-class ecotourism lodge is a leading adventure and nature tours vacation spot.
