If you would like to see other Caribbean attractions, we'll load you up with as much adventure as you can handle. On the Caribbean side of Costa Rica you won't see many golf courses or five-star hotels, as you might expect on the Pacific coast. Instead you will see Costa Rica as it used to be...laid-back, rustic, and rural. You'll meet traditional country gardeners who still plant by the moon and save seeds from year to year. You'll have the opportunity to touch cuisine and medicinal plants that have been the Caribbean culture's survival for centuries.
Our beaches have not been cleared of trees and are rarely uncomfortably crowded. You will have the opportunity to smell and feel jungle beaches in a completely natural setting with shoreline trails that offer a close up view of many jungle creatures. You can surf, snorkle, kayak, white water raft, hike, fish or just plain use imagination and do what feels right.
In order to say you've been to Costa Rica, we think any tour should include visits to local waterfalls, volcanos, white and black sand beaches, canoe rides, whitewater rivers, plenty of jungle tours, and exposure to the local culture and cuisine. For some variation in culture and climate, you might consider several popular attractions in Costa Rica's central, or higher elevation region such as Volcan Poaz, Lake Arenal, or the Monte Verde Cloud Forest Preserve, a premier eco-tourist destination. The development of Monte Verde by the Quakers in the 1950s is an incredible tale by itself, and its impact on the rest of the country is significant.
We might offer tours to the Pacific side too but Jungle Jake says it's highly modernized and too expensive over on yonder Pacific side, and the original culture and nature has been lost in the process, so we prefer to stay Caribbean. It's our goal to provide affordable, wholesome tours to the areas of Costa Rica that set it apart from any other tourist spot in the world.
We would also like to introduce you to our Caribbean neighbors here on the "rich coast" who are helping us make our region accessible and enjoyable.
