What you will visit:

Rainforest Adventures Eco-Park /Aerial Tram

Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica, a top adventure destination, offers exhilarating aerial views of the expansive conservation park. Upon arrival at this 222-acre private reserve, climb aboard an open-air, eight-seat gondola suspended from reinforced steel cables that transports passengers effortlessly through the dense, sun-dappled forest canopy for a unique perspective on birds and plants not usually seen from the ground. Take in the incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and the tropical forest right from your seat as your naturalist guide shares his knowledge on all that you see.

Rainforest Adventures Eco-Park/Optional Nature Walk

An optional guided nature walk through the park is an opportunity to enjoy a visit to the herpetarium, where reptiles and amphibians roam; the blooming botanical plant garden, where medicinal herbs are grown; and a butterfly garden, where you can catch a glimpse of beautiful blue morpho butterflies flitting from the trees.

Costa Rica Animal Rescue Center

A nonprofit organization tirelessly dedicated to the protection of Costa Rica's endangered wildlife harmed by humans or other life-threatening situations. Abuse, deforestation and abandonment are just some of the causes that can bring monkeys, sloths and other animals to the center. Shelter, food and medical attention offer the animals new opportunities in life with the hope that they will be rehabilitated and released back into the wild. The center, located in the quaint town of Turrucares, relies heavily on compassionate and hardworking volunteers dedicated to caring for these vulnerable creatures.

What you will see along the way:
Marvel at the variation in plant life and scan the trees, alive with hummingbirds, parrots and toucans on your rainforest canopy tour. Continue on a nature walk that introduces the beauty of the rainforest flora and fauna up close. You'll also enjoy the drive through the countryside to the rescue center located in the classic Costa Rican town of Turrucares, just on the outskirts of San José.

Lunch:
Your excursion includes a traditional lunch served in a picturesque, rain-forest setting. You will also be able to engage in a sample tasting of Costa Rican coffee.

Shopping:
Time is allotted for you to explore a variety of local and handmade arts, crafts and Costa Rican souvenirs at the gift shop.

Special Notes:

Wear comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes and bring adequate sun protection. Cameras and binoculars are highly recommended. The easy optional guided walk is on a paved and flat trail. But guests could wait for the rest of the group at the cafeteria. Once participants join their tour, they will be required to complete a liability waiver.
