From Mt Irazu (3432m), the highest volcano in Costa Rica, through coffee plantations and dense tropical rainforest to a beautiful tropical beach.
Costa Rica has a huge variety of landscapes, climates and environments and it is home to five per cent of the planet’s biodiversity. From palm tree-lined tropical beaches to smoking volcanoes, cloud forest, rainforest and mangrove swamps – it all awaits us in Costa Rica!
Our coast to coast challenge is an adventurous journey on foot and by raft from the Pacific to the Caribbean Coast! Our route takes us from traditional farming communities through coffee plantations and oak forests, deep into cloudforest and dense tropical rainforest, serenaded by howler monkeys and exotic bird calls. We take in one of the country’s highest volcanoes before our challenge ends with an unforgettable journey by raft and boat to a beautiful tropical beach. This is a challenging trip through remote and rarely-visited regions. The terrain is tough with some hard climbs but the rewards are immense!
