Wild Guanacaste & Monteverde: Costa Rica’s Mangroves, Mists & Mountains

Volcanic peaks and verdant jungles to vibrant reefs

Spend three days inland in Monteverde’s cloud forest, a rarified mountain rainforest strung with suspension bridges, and then explore the unique landscapes, climate, and wildlife of one of Costa Rica’s richest regions, Guanacaste.

Bathed in cool year-round moisture, Monteverde’s private reserve is covered with mosses and 300 species of orchids. Walk trails rich with butterflies and birdlife. Ascend the Skywalk, a series of suspension bridges, for a bird's-eye view of the rainforest canopy and the chance to see resplendent quetzals. Learn about life in the early Monteverde community from an original Quaker homesteader. Spend each night at a charming family-owned lodge.

Then board your ship for a remarkable exploration of Guanacaste’s towering active volcanoes, intricate mangrove and coral systems, and pristine beaches.

  • Glide through a mangrove forest to see reddish egrets, spoonbills, white ibis, and crocodiles

  • Snorkel the rich underwater world near Islas Murcielagos

  • Venture through the Guanacaste Conservation Area by kayak or Zodiac, or on foot

  • Explore Rincón de la Vieja National Park, which is alive with active volcanoes and gurgling mud pots and replete with howler monkeys, waterfalls, and an optional zip line

  • Search for the elusive northern tamandua (anteater) at Curu National Wildlife Range
