A multi-day tour of Costa Rica means getting in all of the country’s must-see attractions without doing any of the planning. A guide provides tons of insight as you travel among destinations including Monteverde, Arenal, Tortuguero, and more—trips made easy with included transportation, meals, and lodging.

With so many tour providers, hotels, and activities in the Monteverde area, it can be hard to know what to choose. This guided tour takes the guesswork out of your trip planning by taking care of the logistics: you’re set up in quality hotels and exploring with pre-vetted activity providers. With this 3-day tour, it’s a cinch to visit Monteverde Cloud Forest from San Jose.

Costa Rica Expeditions will work with your limitations and tailor hikes and other activities. We had some days of casual walking but up and down slippery (wet) hilly unpaved cc trails.
