All-inclusive package 7 nights 8 days in the best destinations in Costa Rica
"This tour was wonderful and marked our first trip to Costa Rica! We loved every minute. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a way to explore and learn about Costa Rica without having to take time planning or having to find your our transportation. Everyday we traveled to a different destination and had a new adventure thanks to our guide. Highlights included jumping into the Pacific Ocean, relaxing in a picturesque thermal river, gliding like Superman on a zip-line over a lush forest, whitewater rafting in a secluded river gorge, and trying local cuisine. In the evenings I enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and pool at the hotel and going for walks on the days we were back before dark. Accommodations were spacious and the staff was very friendly. Since the tour is based out of San Jose, your guide will drive you to the tour destinations each day so make sure you have some of your favorite music and audio-books downloaded on your device. And don't close your eyes, the views along the way are incredible! If you have extra time, I'd recommend staying in Costa Rica a few days after the tour to explore one of the coasts or another city in Costa Rica you'd like to visit."..."

Ziplining and Waterfall Rappelling Combo
"This was an excellent combo excursion! The ziplining is operated by Sky Adventures and the canyoning is operated by PureTrek. Both were exquisite. You start with ziplining and on a clear day like we had, the views were incredible. You see the volcano and the lake. The zip line is fast and high! We even saw some spider monkeys at one of the stations. The canyoning was my favorite part. This is high adrenaline and they start you off with the tallest waterfall. The guides are great and keep you safe. I would recommend closed toed water shoes or closed toed sandals with food grip. You do get soaking wet almost immediately. The monkey drop was insane and definitely something different. The waterfalls were beautiful and thrilling! Lunch was provided by PureTrek - Arroz con Pollo, salad and pineapple-papaya juice. The food was great. We stayed at Nayara so we walked right back to our hotel."..."
