Central America Costa Rica Land Tour

Costa Rica Coast to Coast

Traverse from coast to coast on this 9-day land-based tour, exploring premier rainforest ecosystems in Tortuguero Costa Rica, a national park on the Caribbean coast, as well as the Osa Peninsula on the Pacific coast, where your home base is Lapa Rios Eco Lodge. Custom designed by AdventureSmith, this trip includes daily excursions guided by expert naturalists in search of wildlife. 

Explore the rivers and canals of Tortuguero by small skiff and by kayak while taking time to visit the local village and help teach English to young students. Tortuguero National Park was originally established to protect an Atlantic green sea turtle nesting beach, and it now covers 77,032 acres, making it one of Central America’s largest tropical rainforests. 

On the Osa Peninsula, expert guides lead hikes to waterfalls and biodiversity hotspots in search of monkeys, sloths, toucan and other exotic birds. A menu of activities lets you choose your own included adventure each day, or opt for add-on activities like zip lining, horseback riding or dolphin-viewing boat rides. 

The Coast to Coast adventure uses private transfers by van and small plane to make efficient use of precious vacation time. Accommodations are in upscale eco-lodges that are both intimately connected to the nature and wildlife around them as well as devoted to sustainable tourism. Experience Tortuguero National Park and the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica as few do, by land, water and air.
