Costa Rica Night Tours

Although Costa Rica is well-known for its vibrant creatures of the day, more than 60 percent of the wildlife found in its tropical rainforests is nocturnal. Night tours aim at acquainting travelers with these creatures and the special adaptations they use to survive in the tropics. A flashlight in hand and a bilingual guide by your side, you’ll be led along forest trails as you search for insects, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and more. In places like Tortuguero, you’ll carefully comb the beach for nesting sea turtles by the light of the moon, while in Arenal your search for nocturnal species may be accompanied by glimpses of lava pouring down the sides of the volcano.
