ultra nature in costa rica

17  day escorted tour



Costa Rica, in Central America, boasts 12 unique ecological zones and has one of the greatest bio-diversities in the world. The contrast of habitats has attracted more than 500,000 different species, making it the dream destination for spotting wildlife such as macaws, sea turtles and adorable sloths.
A truly beautiful country, offering rain forests, beaches, river valleys, and bio-diverse wildlife.
Costa Rica is home to 27 national parks and five percent of the world’s bio-diversity. Apart from jungles, there are also cloud forests, swamps, coral reefs, dry forests, and rain forests, currently six active and over 60 dormant or extinct volcanoes, and more than 1,280km of  pristine, beautiful shorelines on both the Pacific and Caribbean sides.

Live life to the fullest in this natural paradise where you will experience "Pura Vida" - Pure Life.

Your tour leader from Custom Touring will take care of everything during the tour, including ensuring luggage is always loaded and handling all the tipping. Join us in San Jose and be prepared for an incredible adventure!

Accommodation has been chosen to blend in with each sector, not luxury but rather nature orientated lodges, haciendas and resorts with facilities we believe will enhance your enjoyment during your tour. (Subject to availability when rates are confirmed and we request reservations.)
