Red-footed Booby

Costa Rica

Boasting an abundance of birds and wildlife, the chance to snorkel over rainbow-hued coral reefs and trekking through thick rain forests in search of capuchin monkeys and three-toed sloths, Zegrahm Expeditions’ Costa Rica tours are designed for the curious, adventure-minded traveler. Our Costa Rica cruise experience takes us into traditional villages in San Blas, where we’ll meet the Kuna Indians, and Darién, where we’ll meet with the Emberá Indians. The Tortuguero Canals are ours to discover—a highlight of our Costa Rica tour for nature lovers—as we come up close and personal with howler and spider monkeys, northern Tamandua anteaters, and black-crowned nigh-herons. With an incredible conservation ethic and over 180 protected natural areas, Costa Rica tops many an adventure traveler’s bucket list for good reason.
