Tour Highlights

Costa Rica Adventure (self-drive)

Full of natural wonders, Costa Rica is an ideal destination for families to enjoy plenty of outdoor adventures. Explore the country at your own pace on a self-drive itinerary, travelling along scenic routes on safe and relatively quiet roads. One of the most bio-diverse countries in the world with thousands of species of flora and fauna, there are endless opportunities to spot wildlife such as monkeys, sloths and vibrant tropical birds. Follow walkways through rainforest canopies, discover pristine beaches and soak in natural hot springs.
