Costa Rica

Costa Rica  was one of the first countries in the world to eliminate it's army in 1948.

Shortly thereafter it started a program of sustainable development.  Rather than chop down it's rainforests for cattle graving the people decided to save it for future generations.  River guides  took up a campaign to save rive basins like the Pacuare from damning. Today the Pacuare River  is one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica  for boating. We offer some great trips to  experience it.

Costa Rica has also preserved great beach towns like Manuel Antonio which is also one of the most gay friendly beach towns in all of Latin America.  Manuel Antonio  is a great place  for a destination wedding.  Several hotels including La Mansion Inn  have a beautiful patio overlooking the ocean for a spectacular wedding setting.

Costa Rica is  a great place for volunteerism. Whether it's with a turtle rescue project on either coast. a reforestation project in the Cloud Forest or working with kids teaching English or computer skill in an area like Dominical  called La Cusinga Lodge

Want to learn Spanish  with a homestay and a total immersion  process -  CR can't be beat even  learn medical Spanish.  
There are great lodges in all budget ranges  from basic  like Selva Verde Lodge, Lands in Love, Eco Lodge San Luis and a fabulous beach resort called Punta Islita which  really practices what it preaches  in treating employees well. 

We offer two types of trips to Costa Rica; Small group high adrenaline rush trips  from 9-15 days.

Our 9 day trips are milder with 2 days of white water rafting on the Pacuare with camping overnight in a jungle lodge on the river banks  then add some hiking, some mt biking  in the rain forest then off to  your choice of beaches. We also offer a 15 day Coast to Coast mt bike trip that can't be beat.

Your other option is to let us customize your trip based on your budget and level of activity.

Is it a family trip, a honeymoon   or just a fun getaway?,  we can plan the perfect  trip.

A typical trip might include a few says in the Arenal Volcano are for a day a white water rafting or flat water boating to Cano Negro wildlife preserve. Maybe head to a local hotspring like Baldi or Tabacon.There are a number fun things to do here. We know them all.

How about heading to Monteverde Cloud Forest region by horseback. It's a wonderful trip.

Monteverde offers a good place for community involvement  or get your hands  dirty with a reforestation project.

From Monteverde head to the beach.   Want to get involved in a turtle rescue project, just ask.

Want to be on a deserted beach away from the crowds. we can suggest small beach towns like Nosara, Samara, Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais.  which is the hippest beach area right now.

Want some Afro Carib culture? how how Puerto Viejo or Cahuita  on the Caribbean Coast. or head down to the Osa Peninsula area   to truly get away from it all. Drake's Bay  or Dominical are fabulous-- We have been to them all and know the hotels first hand.

In the South we suggest La Cusinga  as a more basic lodge with community involvement or more deluxe Agila de Osa or Corcovado Jungle Lodge. La Cusinga is a great inexpensive way to see Corcovado national park. There is some really fun sea kayak trips from here too. You can surf the kayaks into surf or paddle out beyond the breakers and see plenty of sea turtle. Cano Island is a fabulous place for snorkeling   with huge schools of fish  You can even do some whale watching from here- As you can see I love the Southern area. and few #*#@ gringo tourists.
