Travel to Costa Rica and experience its incredible natural attractions
Even in a region well known for its natural diversity, Costa Rica is still a stand out. Thanks to a longstanding tradition of preserving its natural assets, much of the country’s verdant rainforest still stands, opportunities for nature-based adventures abound and the beaches on both coasts are in exceptional nick. As a result, the nation’s cultural riches can oft end up overlooked – but here too the country has much to offer. Costa Ricans are widely regarded as some of the world’s friendliest people and on this trip – in between exploring the country’s most famous national parks –you’ll get to know them while lending a hand on a rural farmstay and kicking back in the rustic beach town of Quepos.

My tour guide, Edgar was exceptional. Not only did he share his knowledge of Costa Rica but he made sure that every group member felt comfortable with their accomadations. He also gave many suggestions for optional activities that allowed for flexibility in addition to the included activities. As a solo traveller, this is my second trip with Intrepid and I enjoyed the experience even more than the last trip. If you're looking for a variety of activities such as hiking, snorkeling, beach activities and nature walks than this is your trip! Book it... you won't regret it!
