Some of the most intense and beautiful biodiversity in all of Central America is located only a boat ride away on Chira Island. You will stay in a protected lodge in the middle of the island surrounded by the tropical forest. It is a night you won’t forget.
The tour is two days and one night. You will get picked up from your hotel in San Jose and driven the three hours to the port. You will take the hour boat ride to across the Gulf of Nicoya. Your bags will be taken to the lodge while the group will hike through the forest. The hike will last a few hours and will come out at the lodge you will stay the night in.
On the second day, the group will continue forward to the opposite side of the Island. The boat will meet you on the other side of the island to take you back to the mainland. This route will allow you to see all of the island on foot. You need to be in reasonably good shape because although the trails are beginner, they still have a few steep sections.
