    Costa Rica Tropical Highlights

    Tortugeuro canals, Arenal National Park environs, Monteverde cloud forest

    JOURNEYS continues to offer travel experiences to Costa Rica that pay proper homage to the country's riches, and it continues to deserve accolades for the value and attention placed on preservation of fantastic bio-diversity. On this group itinerary, you visit three of the original gems in Costa Rica's environmental crown -- the waterways of Tortuguero National Park on the Caribbean coast, Arenal National Park (with its now-dormant, but still imposing volcano), and the world-famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. When you adopt the plan as we present it here, you join small groups of like-minded nature enthusiasts on a set schedule with premier naturalist guides.

    "Our guides were so informative, and the love of their country, flora, fauna, and animals was very evident. Our vacation would never have been this fantastic if it weren’t for them; they were awesome.” -Kylee & Tom Magno
