Group Size
Limited to ~10 Travelers
A very important feature of our Costa Rica trips is the limited group size, as nature encounters are best experienced in a quiet, intimate setting with a lighter footprint on the environment.

Take this trip on a private basis, traveling exclusively with your immediate family, multi-generational family or group of friends. Click here for details and pricing.

  • Internal air cost includes: All private charter flights within the itinerary (this will be listed separately on our invoicing).
Not Included

Physical Requirements
Moderate
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 participate in daily excursions, travelers must be able to walk unassisted for a minimum of two miles over uneven terrain and often muddy, slippery surfaces, up and down inclines and steps with some altitude gain. This itinerary includes a number of short- to medium-length walks over a variety of terrain, including gravel, pavement, boardwalks and dirt trails, sometimes over large roots and rocks (note that all walks can be more difficult to navigate during inclement weather). In Tortuguero and Corcovado, expect to be engaged in two three-hour excursions per day in very hot and humid conditions. In order to get to Casa Corcovado and participate in all activities there, travelers will need to be able to wade into the ocean, potentially knee-deep, over slick rock, rolling pebbles and sand, sit on the flat edge of a small boat and swing both legs over the side. Sea conditions may make for a bumpy ride, and we may at times be in the boat for over an hour at a time. Although the boat is equipped with a sun shade, travelers may be exposed to the full intensity of the sun, as well as wind, rain and sea-spray. Roads may be bumpy on drives.

Important Information About This Trip
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in San Jose by 4:30 pm in order to make it to the hotel in time for a 6 pm welcome dinner on Day 1. You may depart anytime after 2:00 pm on the final day.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find better fares online.
