Costa Rica has so much to offer. It is a tropical country located in Central America. It has both coasts: Pacific and Caribbean. It also has many active volcanoes, great mountains, lush green forests and swamps. It is truly a place to enjoy family adventures and high adrenaline adventures.
There are so many types of adventure activities to do. That makes Costa Rica a never end place of fun. There are canopy tours (zip lining) located in every region of the country; also canyonning and rappel tours on beautiful waterfalls, white water rafting (different intensity from Class I to Class IV - V), ATV (four wheelers), bungee jumping, kayaking, mountain biking, surfing, horseback riding, and hiking among many others. If you want low intensity adventure, you may enjoying the forests, biodiversity, volcanoes and hot springs. If you would like to try high intensity adventure involving white water rafting, canyonning and bungee jumping, Costa Rica is the place to be.
There are many ways to combine the activities in your vacations and enjoy a little bit of everything. Costa Rica is a small country, which allows visitors to experience many touristic locations in a relatively short time. Crossing the countryside west to east will take around 6 hours, but there are so many activities to experience that you will want to have time to stay in one place for at least a little while.
If you are thinking of trying some adrenaline activities, there are some places that are relatively better than others. For white water rafting, the top most visited river in the country is Pacuare River (class III -IV), tours leaving from San Jose, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca or La Fortuna. On the other hand, Monteverde is the best place to experience the Canopy tour although in other areas of the country there are great canopy tours.
