Costa Rica Nature and Wildlife Tours

Costa Rica is one of the world’s most biodiverse countries, home to some five percent of all flora and fauna. This makes it an eco-tourism hotspot and a favorite location for nature lovers.
There are so many ways to experience the vast natural riches of Costa Rica, but which one is best for you?
If you like exploring on your own two feet, a hike is for you. We have all manner of hikes in Costa Rica, both guided, and ones you can do on your own. National parks, rainforests, cloud forests, volcanoes, and mountains all await hikers of all abilities.
You can also enjoy Costa Rica's natural beauty on horseback, in kayaks and canoes, on ATVs, and aboard gondola-like aerial trams through rainforest canopies.
Every method has its advantages. Hiking is quiet, affording excellent chances to spot shy wildlife. Horseback allows you to cover greater distances, and is also quite quiet.
Boat tours are the only way out to whale-watching hotspots, while kayaks and canoes give you opportunities to explore rainforest rivers and mangroves. Aerial trams, canopy tours, and hanging bridges are the easiest way to get eye-to-eye with forest canopy dwellers.

Once-in-a-Lifetime Nature and Wildlife Experiences

Many of Costa Rica’s nature tours offer once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Turtle tours take you to Caribbean and Pacific beaches for nesting and hatching – an outstanding experience, especially during an arribada.
Whale-watching tours take you into the Pacific to find playful spinner dolphins, pseudo orcas, and iconic humpbacks.
Snorkeling and diving tours show you exotic worlds of colorful coral and subterranean caves. You’ll swim with sharks and observe tropical octopi; see massive manta rays, and schools of big fish.
For land-lubbers, there’s always something spectacular to spot. 
Follow the footprints of tapirs and jaguars in Corcovado or hike amid chattering monkeys in Manuel Antonio. Take a night hike in Monteverde and discover tree frogs and tarantulas!
Let Costa Rica’s nature tours teach you, entertain you, and wow you.
