Get Your Adrenaline Pumping with Adventure Travel Costa Rica
Just setting foot off the plane in Costa Rica gives most visitors an immediate surge of excitement. Something about the warm tropical air, the dense, vibrant foliage, and the idea of miles of jungle wilderness tends to bring out a traveler’s innate sense of adventure.
While just hanging out on the beach may seem more exciting in Costa Rica, there are some real thrills available for those truly intrepid visitors looking for amazing, one-of-a-kind experiences, including:
Wildlife and eco tours aren’t just about sitting quietly and looking at birds (although the sight of a scarlet macaw or toucan peeking at you through the trees is actually pretty exciting). They’re about exploring the rainforest wilderness, getting up close and personal with crocodiles, and exploring active volcanoes. Booking one of these adventures can provide you with the experience of a lifetime.
There are many tumultuous rivers and spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, making it a great place for whitewater rafting. Even if you’ve been rafting in the US before, flying down rapids through the jungle is an experience like no other, and a must-do for rafting enthusiasts.
Driving an ATV or four-wheeler over beach, jungle, and mountain terrain is a rugged, up-close and personal way to get the lay of the land in Costa Rica. Guided ATV tours are provided by several companies, so you can have the experts show you the best spots to drive, and the most scenic routes.
Exploring Costa Rica’s landscape at ground level is pretty exciting. But the biggest thrill may be seeing it from a bird’s eye view. Soaring through the jungle canopy on a zipline, or simply watching the sun flicker through the leaves on a platform far above the ground, is an incredible adventure you’ll not soon forget.
Diving down into Costa Rica’s canyons is one of Costa Rica’s newest and most thrilling activities, and is perfect for those brave souls whose idea of a good time includes rappelling down sheer canyon faces, hiking through the rainforest, and getting up close and personal with rushing waterfalls.
Whether you’re into scuba diving, parasailing or big game fishing, Costa Rica is one of the best spots in the world for ocean adventures.
What’s better than choosing a fun adventure in Costa Rica? Choosing more than one! Many companies offer package adventures, with multiple adventured planned across several days.
