Costa Rica Rainforests

Behold nature's emeralds when you explore Costa Rica rainforests. Tropical rainforests in Costa Rica are often referred to as “the jewels of the Earth,” and it is easy to see why. Arenal volcano looms over the luscious foliage of La Fortuna's neighbouring forests. Tortuguero is a nesting sanctuary for the delicate eggs of turtles. Adventurous travellers can peer through the verdant trees and bushes lining the banks of the Caño Negro wetlands during a floating safari.

Whether your Costa Rica rainforest tour has you zip lining through a canopy, getting a bird's-eye view from a suspension bridge, or carefully navigating on the ground there will be plenty for you to see. Costa Rica's rainforest animals make up two-thirds of all living animal and plant species on the planet. If you go on a tour with a local naturalist guide, your Costa Rica rainforest excursions will be even more informative, as your guide will be able to teach you about the plants you’re seeing and help you find the hiding spots of the forest’s animals.

If you just can't get enough of nature, you can top off your experience by staying at one of Costa Rica's rainforest lodges, making your getaway a true ecotour. Discover all of the beauty and magic of nature when you book your one of a kind rainforest vacation with the help of this list.
