Costa Rica Nature Walks
Costa Rica is bursting at the seams with nature — however, if you don’t know where to go or what to look for, you might miss the most spectacular sights. Nature walks connect travelers with naturalist guides in some of the country’s best outdoor areas, including Monteverde and Arenal. As you walk along, your guide will point out native plant and animal species and teach you about the ecology of the region. These tours sometimes involve hanging bridges, which provide travelers with a birds-eye view into the forest canopy. Nature walks proceed at relatively slow pace and are good for families or people who have trouble walking long distances.
