ultra nature in costa rica

16  day guided tour

03 - 18 may 2023


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.

There will be no escort from Custom Touring on this tour, but travellers will be guided all the way: you will be picked up at the airport and transferred privately to your hotel. While on tour, you will be accompanied every day by an experienced driver and local English speaking guide, with knowledge in First Aid, who will take good care of you.

Accommodation has been carefully chosen to blend in with each sector, but is subject to availability when there are sufficient numbers for the tour to be confirmed and booked.

Costa Rica is heaven for birders, with 903 known bird species!
