A Guide to Rainforest and Jungle Adventures
More than a quarter of Costa Rica’s land area is comprised of wildlife refuges, national parks, and biological reserves, making it a nature lover’s dream destination. While there are six different types of forests found in this Central American country, most can be classified into three groups, including rainforests.
El Castillo offers its guests numerous ways to explore and experience the beauty of these lush forests.
- Go on a four-wheeled adventure in Uvita, one of the unspoiled regions of Southern Costa Rica. Other great ATV tours include those from Morete Adventure and Jungle ATV.
- Saddle up for a horseback ride to Nauyaca Falls. These falls are one of the most renowned attractions in Costa Rica. Riders will start their adventure with breakfast then continue along the Baru River before reaching the falls.
- Take in the rainforest from above by ziplining at Osa Mountain. The tour features 15 platforms, 11 cables, a “Tarzan” swing, and two rappelling stations that take visitors through the breathtaking rainforest canopy.
- For an up-close look at rainforest flora, plan a hiking adventure. Corcovado National Park is a 164-mile sanctuary filled with everything from howler monkeys to sloths. El Castillo’s excursion is an eight-hour adventure.
- Visitors should keep an eye out for exotic birds as they make their way down the Savegre River on a whitewater rafting tour. Starting in the Talamanca Mountain Range, an experienced guide leads the whitewater rafting trip through waves with stops along the way to experience a waterfall hike and swimming holes. This river includes class II and III wavers, making it a good option for beginners and intermediates.
