When you book your Costa Rica holiday with Grand American Adventures, we'll help you to plan your ideal active break.

Experience adventure in Costa Rica
Costa Rica adventure travel is like nothing else in the world – one minute you could be looking for monkeys in the rainforest – and then next moment, you could turn a corner and discover a hidden waterfall. Think of the country as an adventurer's paradise – there are new things to be discovered on every step of your journey!
During your time in Costa Rica, you'll want to pay a visit to the Arenal volcano – one of the most active volcanoes in the world! This is a great place to visit at night after a day of hiking – witness the glowing lava and rock as it is blasted high into the evening air, then rest your weary muscles in the relaxing natural hot springs nearby.
For even more action and adventure on your Costa Rica tour, head to the world-famous Monteverde Cloud Forest. This natural paradise is internationally recognised for its pioneering approach to eco-tourism and there are plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with the country's stunning flora and fauna.
Adventurous types may wish to try zip-lining atop the forest canopy, or simply walk from platform to platform high above the ground. You may spot a group of playful monkeys in the treetops – make sure you have your camera at the ready to snap these playful and intelligent creatures in action.
Back on the ground, you may wish to explore the forest on horseback before stopping for a cup of locally-grown organic coffee.
Or you can venture just south of Costa Rica to the beautiful beaches of Bocas del Toro, in Panama's Caribbean islands. This could be the perfect place to wrap up your South American adventure – spend a few days soaking up the sun here and arrive back home feeling rested, refreshed and relaxed!
