Costa Rica has something for everyone out there ready to experience its nature and wilderness firsthand, and the adventure department surely isn’t lacking. These customizable vacation packages are full of adventure wonders for families, couples and groups alike. Anything from ziplining over tropical canopy, white water rafting through the fast mountain canyons, or going on an island adventure to do some serious diving is here in front of you, ready to be tweaked to perfection on your demand.
We picked best of the best Costa Rica adventure vacations for you, whether you’re staying in one place or doing a cross country combo, you won’t be lacking adrenaline rush. Guanacaste offers myriad of marine sports and activities, sport fishing and scuba diving come to mind first, but don’t think that list is over: north of Papagayo there are some of the most famous Costa Rica’s surf spots, not to mention Tamarindo—surf mecca where you can also do some sea kayaking or paddleboarding.
If you’re up for some inland exploring of tropical dry forests and hiking volcanoes, Rincon de la VIeja is just one hour away from most Guanacaste hotels, and one of the most thrilling tours you may encounter here is ziplining over the river canyon combined with waterfall rappelling, or you can opt-in for horseback riding, relaxation in steaming hot springs along with screaming down the 1200 feet long tube at an insane speed through the dense rainforest above you.
White water rafting is best done as a connection tour from San Jose, North or Central Pacific to Arenal and Monteverde area or vice versa. Arenal offers every possible adventure out here, minus the snorkeling/diving expeditions. Horseback riding to waterfall, visits to world renowned hot springs and spas, dozens of extreme sport tours, hiking, driving ATVs, exploring rainforests, even kayaking, paddling and freshwater fishing. You name it—Arenal has it!
Going to Osa Peninsula in the South Pacific or to Tortuguero on the North Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is an adventure in itself, as you slide through tropical jungle on boats by river roads with wildlife sunbathing just few feet away from you just to get to your accommodations. And once there, options are endless: tour the national parks swarming with tropical wildlife, visit a waterfall, go diving or snorkeling around Isla Caño, do a zipline tour and kayak up and down lazy rivers of Tortuguero in quest for a perfect monkey shot.
