  • Kayak the canals of Tortuguero National Park to a soundtrack of exotic birdsong, watching for monkeys, caimans, crocodiles and turtles
  • Paddle the exhilarating Class III-IV rapids of the Pacuare River, ranked one of the Top 10 rivers to raft in the world by National Geographic
  • Explore the trails around Arenal Volcano, on the hunt for spider monkeys, coatis and toucans
