Explore Rainforests and National Parks in Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s diverse landscape and animal life make it an ideal destination for eco-tourism. You’ll see plenty of both on this vacation, which includes tours of the Arenal Volcano National Park’s rainforests and the canals and wetlands of Tortuguero National Park. There’s also some adventurous activities planned—you’ll soar through treetops on a zipline and relax in natural hot springs. Along the way, you’ll stay at hotels with tons of amenities like private gardens, pools, spas, and bars. The trip includes:

  • 1 night at the Best Western Irazu in San Jose or similar
  • 2 nights at Laguna Tortuguero in Tortuguero
  • Guided walk on hotel trails and botanical garden
  • Boat tour to Tortuguero National Park
  • Trip to Tortuguero town

Days 1–3: San Jose and Tortuguero

After your flight, you’ll head straight to your San Jose hotel. Depending on when you arrive, you may have time to explore Costa Rica’s capital city, where you can soak up the colonial architecture and sample tamales, pupusas (stuffed flatbread), and other street food.

After breakfast the next morning you’ll leave for Tortuguero. While here you’ll stay at Laguna Tortuguero whose restaurants, bars, and pools are nestled on a 6-acre garden between the Tortuguero Lagoon and Caribbean Sea. Day three is filled with activities, outlined below.

  • Tortuguero National Park: Hop on a boat tour after breakfast to explore canals, lagoons, and wetlands inhabited by endangered turtles and manatees.
  • Go into town: There are no streets in this quiet little village, but the sandy pathways and rare cement sidewalks will lead you to plenty of restaurants, artist-owned shops, and the Sea Turtle Conservatory Museum.

Days 4–5: La Fortuna

On day four, you’ll arrive at Casa Luna Hotel & Spa, a rustic, colonial-style hotel near the Arenal Volcano. The next day is filled with adventurous activities, as follows:

  • Zipline tour: You’ll whiz past colorful birds in lush rainforests and over waterfalls.
  • Arenal Volcano National Park: At this roughly 30,000-acre park, you’ll find hiking trails, fertile rainforests, and a wide variety of plants and animals. Keep your eyes peeled for parrots, howler monkeys, and orchids.
  • Arenal hot springs: Soothe tired muscles in warm pools created by the volcano’s geothermic activity.

Days 6–7: La Fortuna and Return to U.S.

Since day six has no set itinerary, you can spend your time as you please, enjoying a drink at the hotel’s Luna Bar or indulging in a relaxing Swedish massage with volcanic mud. Alternatively, you can book activities through the hotel, such as cave explorations, rappelling, and canopy tours. The next day, you’ll have breakfast before heading back to the airport for your return flight to the United States.

This was a fantastic getaway. The hotel was comfortable and nicely done. It's very typical Costa Rica so please don't assume you are going to the Ritz. The hospitality was exceptional. The staff at the hotel was friendly and bilingual. The restaurant was delicious with a well-apportioned breakfast and open for lunch and dinner. We cannot say enough about Ecoterra's tours and their guides. Daniela and Mainor (sp) were extremely knowledgeable in the Costa Rican plant and animal life. On day one, we did the Hanging Bridges hike/tour and the National Park hike/tour with the Lake Arenal boat ride. The hanging bridges hike was perfect. We saw Howler Monkeys, spider monkeys, a couple of frogs, an eyelash viper, and coatimundi. The second day we did the Trekking at Hule volcanic lagoons. This was CHALLENGING so if you do this be ready for a true hike/trek. It's not easy but the sites you will see will blow your mind. This groupon was worth every cent.

This was an amazing experience. Drivers and tours were very punctual. Everyone was friendly. Upgraded to Tabacon hot springs which was beautiful and relaxing. We added the Venado Caves Tour (also an awesome experience). The meals were ok.

We had an amazing trip to Costa Rica through Ecoterra for 7 nights 6 days. We booked through Groupon and were initially skeptical but could not have chosen a better location for our honeymoon! Being vegetarian we were nervous about food on the trip but there was not a single meal that we felt this was an issue - there were more than enough options usually lots of fresh fruit, rice and beans (pure vegetarian - not cooked with any broth or lard), plantains, fresh queso, pancakes, bread/toast, steamed vegetables, potatoes, and more. The first night was in San Jose at the Park Inn Radisson which is a good hotel and about a 1/2 hour drive from the airport on a weekend. There is nothing planned on day 1. On day 2 there is an early pick up the morning (6 am) by Laguna Lodge in Tortuguero who coordinate the 3 days / 2 nights in Tortuguero. Our guide, Rolando, was extraordinary. He really went out of his way to ensure a first class experience for everyone on the tour and would take significant time to provide great insight about the wildlife and local culture. The commentary is in spanish and english, the group size was apprx. 40. We passed through Braulio Carrillo National Park which gave us a chance to see a cloud forest and the continental divide and then had breakfast at the Selva Tropical in Guapiles about 2 hours later. From Selva Tropical it was another one hour to the port where we took a water taxi which was a wonderful experience as we were able to spot some amazing wildlife. Once you reach there is a lunch buffet at Laguna Lodge and their meals are delicious and extremely generous. In the late afternoon there was a coordinated tour of the Tortuguero town which provides a chance to buy souvenirs if desired and see how the locals live (about 1 hour). Laguna Lodge does not have A/C which was okay when we visited but it did rain a lot, especially during the main event of the nature tour on the morning of Day 3 and the afternoon is free time. Day 4 is a travel day and we left around 9 a.m. to reach La Fortuna around 3/3:30 p.m but there are two breaks, one after the water taxi and another for lunch on the same route back to Guapiles at the Selva Tropical (no dinner that day) and then approximately 2.5 hours to La Fortuna. Day 5 was the most packed starting with a ziplining tour at 8 a.m. to noon. Lunch is on your own but around 2:30 you leave again for the Volcano Tour followed by a drop off at Paradise Springs. There is an option to upgrade to Tabacon but we were very happy with the Paradise which is a beautiful property and had great privacy with plenty of pools. Dinner was included but there were no protein options (rice & beans) for vegetarians at the Paradise springs but dinner was still good. The staff at Casa Luna were phenomenal – they took care of us when we wanted to explore on our own on Day 6. Pick up is at 8 a.m. on Day 7 to go to San Jose airport which takes 3 hours. The roads are very winding and some of us started to feel motion sickness but we had a 15 min break halfway through and it helped to alleviate a bit. Overall we could not have asked for a better experience in Costa Rica, we are recommending to all our family & friends.

The customer service was excellent! The drivers were always on time and respectful. The activities were fun and the places we stayed were luxurious. It was wonderful not having to plan anything and just relax through the whole vacation. I will look to do future trips with Ecoterra and I highly recommend them!

This trip was amazing! It was my first time in Costa Rica and Ecoterra made everything so easy. You don’t have to worry about a thing! The hotels and the guides were wonderful. It was exactly what we were looking for - part adventure and part relaxing. We just wish we could have stayed longer! Everyone was so friendly and patient with our lack of Spanish. I can’t say enough wonderful things!
