This exciting holiday explores Costa Rica's most dramatic contrasts: cloud forests, volcanoes, lakes, waterfalls and the Pacific coast. You'll be amazed at the amount of wildlife you'll encounter. From quetzals and tree frogs to agoutis and iguanas, each day is memorably different. Awe-inspiring panoramas abound with balcony views to the distant Pacific Ocean and sweeping vistas over Lake Arenal and to the magnificent volcano.

This varied walking holiday is mainly on jungle trails and country tracks and includes some wildlife spotting and opportunities for photography along the routes. Rainforest trails can be slippery and steep in sections, so walking boots are essential. The distances of the walks range from 8km to 18km and take between 3-5 hours. On days 5 and 6 there are boat trips included for superb views across to the Arenal Volcano on day 5 and of the Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge on day 6. During the trip, there are also opportunities for swimming (if you want to).
