Upon arrival in San Jose, our guide will acquaint you with the sights of the capital of Costa Rica and its history. Share the specifics of local life and give useful tips.

While traveling through the Braulio Carrillo National Park, where the landscapes of the virgin forest will fascinate with their grandeur, you will overcome the mountain range, whose maximum height is about 2000 meters above sea level, and go down to 200 meters above sea level, feeling the change in the climatic zone.

On the Tortuguero River, you will have the opportunity to observe the work of all the famous Chiquita banana plantations, as well as visit the pineapple and rice plantations.

During a tour through the canals of Tortuguero National Park, you will be able to watch the awakening of the fauna of this park and contemplate its natural wealth. And on the beach of the Caribbean you will watch the laying of eggs of green turtles. This is a unique spectacle that can be seen in Tortuguero only from July to October.

While walking through the Cahuita National Park, you will be able to observe monkeys, sloths and other representatives of the fauna of the national park.

At the mouth of the San San River, you can watch the manatees (‘sea cows’). These herbivorous aquatic mammals of the siren family, in spite of their impressive size, are very gullible and peaceful. Their daily food is algae. They peacefully ‘graze’ at a depth of 2-3 meters. These animals reach a length of about 4.5 meters and weigh about 600 kg. Unfortunately, this species of animals is at the stage of extinction, and fortunately, they can still be seen in the waters of the Caribbean.

At the foot of the Baru volcano is located the town of Boquete, which is a favorite place of European and American migrants; this is a small settlement surrounded by mountain ranges, at an altitude of 1200 meters above sea level. Special magic is felt here in everything – almost always the rainbow arch hangs over the city, horses freely graze along the roads, dotted with flowers, sunlight is reflected in streams, rivers and waterfalls flowing through canyons. Locals rightly call this area ‘Little Switzerland’.

At the coffee plantation you will learn about the process of growing coffee, assembling coffee berries, drying and roasting coffee beans, as a result of which we can enjoy this fragrant invigorating drink.

Off the coast of the Pacific Ocean, you can watch a spectacular sight – the ‘dances’ of humpback whales, which swim from the south for breeding in the warm waters of the Gulf of Chiriquí, the Pacific Ocean of Panama. You will have the opportunity to swim in the clear calm waters of the bay, sunbathe on the beach and dine in the style of pic-nick on one of the islands.

A city tour awaits you in the capital of Panama with a visit to the main attractions of the capital: the observation deck Miraflores on the Panama Canal, the Amador district, Casco Viejo – the historic center of the city, the ruins of the old city and the modern center of the capital.
