Exploring Costa Rica: Cloud Forest to the Caribbean

Discover the wild, rugged beauty of Costa Rica’s mountains, the Caribbean coast, and more on an inland adventure to a mist-shrouded cloud forest, volcano, and lake and a car-free jungle village. You’ll take a walk in the clouds of Monteverde, where consistent canopy-level mist allows jungle vegetation to thrive. Cross Lake Arenal before exploring the volcano, which has been active since 1968. Walk suspension bridges surrounding the smoldering volcano and relax in natural hot springs near its base. Visit a coffee farm to pick coffee cherries and tour the grounds. On the Caribbean coast explore Tortuguero National Park and wander the narrow streets of the car-free village where the rainforest pushes in from all sides. Venture into the jungle-canopied canals that let us navigate deep into the park in search of monkeys, caiman, and tropical birds.
