Based on our adventures
These are the top 10 things we think you’ll enjoy on a Costa Rican Road Trip.
A wonderful way to get close to nature and experience first hand the amazing diveristy in the flora & fauna Costa Rica has to offer.
You will be astounded at the wildlife that occupies Tortuguero. Floating along these peaceful tributaries that feed the main lagoon, you will scan the canopies for sloths & monkeys. By the waterside will bask the truly staggering array of birds. Hiding by the banks in the still waters will lie Caiman, and check out the overhanging branches for reptiles warming their bodies in the Costa Rican sun.
The peace and tranquility that comes from walking high up in the forest canopy. At time the views downward are staggering. You can feel the forest is alive.
Sloths appear to run in slow motion, as a result you slow down too. What can be better that taking it a little easier on your Costa Rican road trip?
From the hummingbirds that seem to defy physics, to the elegant pelicans swooping across water. The range of bird life is staggering. Monkeys that look so human in their mannerisms to finally bats. Okay, we didn’t see a huge amount of bats, the line of long-nosed proboscis bats we saw were impressive.
The chance to observe the canopy of the forest and get a birds-eye view. Walk from peak-to-peak with the sound of the forest surrounding you.
A highlight would have been to observe lava errupting from the top of the volcano. However we were not that lucky, therefore we’ll need to come back at some time in the future 🙂
Get the bush to cup story of how that early morning pick-me-up juice is grown. Take the journey from the red beans that spread from Ethiopia to the global commodity that is now coffee. Whether you like coffee or not, the tour is fascinating.
Not just for the adrenaline junkies this one. Very few of us will get the chance to soar across a rain forest. If you get the chance, give it a go because you only live once.
