On this seven-day trip with Costa Rica Dream World, travelers will visit some of the Costa Rica’s greatest treasures, including the mountain town of La Fortuna and Manuel Antonio National Park. Soar above the lush forest on a canopy zipline tour and paddle down the Arenal River before soaking in Baldi Hot Springs back in town. In Manuel Antonio, work with non-profit organization Proyecto Asis to help preserve the natural environment and animal populations. There will also be plenty of time for hiking and animal watching in the park. The trip ends with a chance to see crocodiles and other native fauna while on a safari tour on the Tarcoles River. Ground transportation, driver fees, accommodations and some meals are included in the price.
