Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Costa Rica Adventure Tours Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Types of Costa Rica Adventure Activities

Costa Rica is well known for its stunning natural views, biodiversity, and its exciting adventure activities. If you want to do more than just relax on your next vacation to Costa Rica, here are some of the types of excursions you can try out on a Costa Rica Adventure Tour.

Adventure Package Water Activities

Sportfishing. Get off land and into deep water for some of the best pelagic fishing in the world. Target sailfish, swordfish, mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, and wahoo are typical targets.

River tubing. Travel through a fast-moving jungle river in your own tube. Keep your eyes open for wildlife as you whip through the forest!

Whitewater rafting. To experience some of Costa Rica’s Class V rapids, take to a larger craft and plummet down waterfalls, splash over rocks, and fly through the jungle.

Surfing. The best surfing in Costa Rica is along its North Pacific coast, one of the least populated regions of the country, which means you’ll have the beach to yourself. The Central Pacific coast is just as accessible, but has a bit more nightlife, so the choice is up to you,.

Scuba Diving. With dozens of islands, wrecks, and and innumerable tropical fish, sharks, turtles, dolphins, and rays, some of the best diving in the world can be found on Costa Rica’s Caribbean side.

Thrill Seeker Activities

Bungee jumping. There are multiple bungee jumping spots throughout Costa Rica, so whether you want to get your heart pumping with a typical jump off of a bridge, or mix things up and jump hundreds of feet down in the Monteverde Cloud Forest, Costa Rica has a spot for you.

Four Wheeling / Quad Tours. If you want to cover more distance and see as much of Costa Rica as you can in a fast pace, consider tackling your choice of Costa Rican terrain -- beach, jungle, mountain -- in a four wheeler.  

Costa Rica Rainforest Adventures

Zipline canopy tours. By far the most popular adventure activity in Costa Rica, ziplining through the treetops is not only a thrill, but it provides a whole different look at the jungle ecosystem. Some of the best ziplining can be found in National Parks; Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, and Arenal’s parks all have world class zipline courses.

Canyoning / Waterfall rappelling. Explore the dramatic landscapes of Costa Rica’s jungle canyons and caves by directly rappelling down them, and through their waterfalls.  

Hiking. Going on a grueling rainforest hike is another way to get your thrills in in Costa Rica, and some of the best are up and around Costa Rica's dormant and extinct volcanoes.

What to Bring for a Costa Rica Adventure Tour

Costa Rica has a tropical climate and frequent rains across the country. As a result, your wardrobe should consist of lightweight, easily drying clothing that you can layer for cooler morning and evening activities.

As most Costa Rican adventure tours either consist of water activities, or give you time to do go swimming, you should pack a bathing suit a waterproof shoes (this is particularly important for those rafting or tubing).

Sunscreen and bug spray are two other things one should pack, as all Costa Rica adventure activities take place outside, and usually in the jungle. Another good item to bring would be a Go Pro or mounted camera -- these waterproof and hands free devices are allowed on nearly all of the activities listed above, and a good way to remember your trip.

Things to Know Before You Go

5 Best Ziplining Locations in Costa Rica

Zipline tours as they are now were pioneered in Costa Rica, and as a result they are an essential part of any trip to Costa Rica.

#1 Arenal Reserve (Sky Trek). This tour is great not only for the intensity of its ziplines, and its length, it is also accessible to people of all ages. Instead of climbing up to the starting platform, visitors are safely transported in a covered aerial tram. From there, you begin a series of 10 ziplines, hundreds of feet in the air and thousands of feet long.

#2 Monteverde Cloud Forest. Away from the oppressive heat of the lowlands, zip lining through Costa Rica’s most famous  Cloud Forest is a treat in of itself. The tour is also particularly long, including a series of 12 ziplines, and there is a Tarzan-swing style jump at the end -- so you will definitely get your money’s worth on this tour.

#3 Guanacaste (Diamante Superman Canopy Zipline). The zipline circuits here are unique because of their views of both a tropical rainforest, and Pacific ocean. Only the truly adventurous will want to take this tour, however -- you are required to fly headfirst on these ziplines!

#4 Montezuma Waterfall Canopy Tour. This tour’s highlight is what it’s named after: on the solid, 13-line circuit, there is a stop at a the beautiful Montezuma waterfall, before continuing on with the rest of the zipline tour. There is also the added bonus of being one of the more affordable zipline deals in the country.

#5 Witches Rock Canopy Tour. This is the luxury version of ziplining, and probably the safest, most high-tech zipline circuit on this list. Not only is the Witches Rock circuit an impressive 24 platforms long, with three hangings bridges as an add-on, you will get stunning views of forest, waterfalls, and ocean on this tour.

When To Go on a Zipline Tour

Weather in Costa Rica is relatively consistent year round, so there is no bad time to go ziplining, weather wise. However, the drier season in Costa Rica (December to April) does align with the main tourist season. So if you want to save money on airfare and hotel prices, traveling during the “rainy” season of May to November is a great option.

Regardless of the season, though, make sure to pack sunscreen and bug spray!

What to Wear on A Zipline Tour

Make sure your clothing is comfortable, and for women, make sure you are wearing pants or shorts. You will be wearing a snug harness for the duration of your zipline tour, and this harness will likely fasten between your legs. You will also have to wear secure shoes; basically, just make sure you are not wearing flip flops.
