itinerary map of Costa Rica Adventure summer travel program for teenagers

Costa Rica Adventure introduces our teenagers to many of the highlights of this beautiful country. We will explore the magnificent mountainous interior and the palm-tree lined beaches of this slice of paradise. We begin our adventure in the vibrant city of San Jose and the beautiful lush Central Valley. We jump right into the action with a visit to one of the world’s most active craters, Poas Volcano, and make our way to the other-worldly La Paz Waterfall Gardens.

Next, we head north to the town of La Fortuna and one of Costa Rica’s must-see destinations, the Arenal Volcano. Hike to the lava rocks in Arenal National Park and spot monkeys and sloths on our excursion through the rainforest on the famous Hanging Bridges. Sit back and relax in soothing natural hot springs after our exhilarating waterfall rappelling adventure. Our journey continues to our next stop, magical Monteverde, home to mysterious cloud forests and jaw-dropping natural beauty. Get psyched for our exciting zip-line tour as you cruise from tree-top to tree-top!

Next up is Rincon de la Vieja, home to the awesome Jungle Water Slide, exciting canopy tours, and bubbling volcanic mud baths. After a stop in Palo Verde National Park, we continue to the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean and Playa Tamarindo, home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. It’s time to “hang ten” during our professional surf lessons and enjoy the gorgeous sunset during our catamaran cruise.

The adventure continues as we head to the Central Pacific Coast. We’ll drive to postcard-perfect Playa Herradura for an incredible snorkel cruise to pristine Isla Tortuga. Manuel Antonio National Park is next, famous for its magnificent beaches, teeming wildlife, and unspoiled rainforests. Grab your paddle and get ready for our thrilling white-water rafting trip on the Rio Savegre.

We’ll head back to San Jose for our farewell dinner as we reminisce with our new friends about our incredible summer memories and awesome experiences on Costa Rica Adventure.
