Become immersed in Costa Rica's natural wilds, snorkelling, kayaking and rafting
Quench your wanderlust while sating an appetite for adventure on this active trip through one of the world's greenest countries. Paddle down the Pacuare River by raft for a night in a rainforest eco lodge. Snorkel in the company of turtles, barracuda and reef sharks in Cahuita National Park. Cycle along the Caribbean coastline to the mellow beach refuge of Puerto Viejo and paddle through the waterways of Tortuguero National Park in search of monkeys, toucans and jaguars. Costa Rica is a country where adventure-seekers thrive.
2019 CHANGES: From 1 January 2019 this trip will change. These changes come as a result of our traveller’s and operator’s feedback that the snorkelling activity cannot always be provided due to weather. We have replaced the snorkelling activity with surfing; a beginner surf lesson or hire of the board for more advanced surfers. The trip name will also change to reflect this. 2019 departures are not guaranteed for this reason as yet.

Fantastic trip. Loved the activities and the food. Our leader found the most amazing place to eat, can't say that I had a bad meal the entire trip. Our group was amazing and will travel with Intrepid again.
