Costa Rica Boat Tour
It’s well known that some of the best places to visit in Costa Rica are the most difficult to get to. Boat tours help visitors access a score of such places by providing easy transportation up rivers, across oceans and through estuaries. During these trips, tour takers may snorkel, swim or sunbathe; they might search for birds or mammals, fish for rainbow bass, or hike along an island’s jungle trails. An ecologically savvy guide, who can help explain the relationships between the varying organisms, often accompanies these tours. Meals are frequently provided, and all guests are equipped with any necessary equipment.
