Costa Rica "Pura Vida" Adventure - Overview

Download Itinerary

A week-long escape to Costa Rica to raft the best river in Latin America, explore the unique wildlife of Costa Rica's rainforest canopy and witness the million-turtle nesting miracle in Tortuguero National Park. What, in the vicinity of paradise, could be a finer juxtaposition than mixing the pulse-quickening of a world-class wild river, the Pacuare, with the quiet awe of one of the greatest natural phenomena on earth: the annual turtle nesting on the Caribbean beaches of Costa Rica? Join us for the best of super-natural "Pura Vida" Costa Rica on a tropical adventure vacation based out of two of Central America’s most legendary eco-lodges.
