Costa Rica Multi Sport CME

Corcovado National Park | Cano Island Biological Reserve | Savegre River Valley | Manuel Antonio National Park

Corcovado is a paradise of tropical wilderness and beaches, cataloged by the National Geographic Society as “one of the most biologically intense places on Earth!” It has truly spectacular wildlife, including many species of monkeys, crocodiles, exotic parrots, toucans, and an incredible diversity of species. Resident naturalists lead several hiking and boat excursions with snorkeling options, all  included in the trip price.  Our accommodations in Corcovado will be the spectacular La Paloma Lodge, regarded as one of the best eco-lodges in Costa Rica.

We travel by boat, through beautiful mangroves to the remote village of Sierpe. From Sierpe we travel up the west coast to the beautiful Savegre River Valley, where we stay at the Rafiki Jungle Lodge, which is patterned after deluxe Africa Wildlife Lodges. During our stay at Rafiki, you can do hiking with a naturalist, horseback riding, bird and wildlife watching, and enjoy a whitewater raft trip on the  Savegre River. Perfect for first time or seasoned rafters!

Then we travel to the beautiful coastal town of Manuel Antonio, where we stay at the exclusive Parador Hotel. You’ll have time to explore the lovely beaches or do a host of multi-sport day adventures there.
