You will be amazed at the area’s diversity and richness of nature walking along the numerous trails in either reserve. In the higher parts of the forest, there exists what is called “natural Elfin Forest” (the climate is such that the tallest trees do not exceed 10 meters). There are many activities in the area to complement your visit: adventure zip line tours, hanging bridges, hummingbird gardens, butterfly gardens, a Serpentarium (one of the best in the country), a nocturnal wildlife tour, horseback riding, a cheese tour (cheeses made in the town are the best in Costa Rica), etc. Accommodation at the hotel of your election.

Karla Samsin, United Kingdom

I had an absolutely fantastic time in Costa Rica with this agency! There was wildlife everywhere which was amazing. Definitely a holiday for anyone who likes to be active and out in nature. Every day was equally amazing as the last. The Best Of Costa Rica team were brilliant, nothing was too much hassle especially after our flight inbound to the country was delayed a day by the Turrialba volcano. Read more
