Physical Requirements
Easy - Moderate / Flexible
This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness, though our days in Costa Rica generally start quite early and are very full with activities. In order to explore the trails and hanging bridges at Arenal & Monteverde, travelers should be able to walk 1-2 miles unassisted over uneven terrain, potentially muddy, slippery surfaces and inclines and with some altitude gain.  This itinerary involves as a number of short to medium-length walks over a variety of terrain, including gravel, pavement, boardwalks and dirt trails, sometimes over roots and rocks (note that all walks can be be more difficult to navigate during inclement weather). We stress that all activities are optional. Travelers should be aware that the heat and humidity may be very high and roads may be bumpy.
Important Information About This Trip
Costa Rica is one of the earth’s greatest natural treasures. On this adventure we seek to focus on the “jewels” within this beautiful country. Our Expedition Leader and driver will accompany our small groups to these remote areas that reveal the splendors of the rainforests and cloud forests. Fairly long drives are a necessity on this trip.
Mandatory Insurance
