Wildlife, Beach, Volcano, And Jungle Tour

per person

We know in advance that the free botanical garden of the Bougainvillea Hotel is something exuberant to enchant the visitor upon arrival.

As a starting point, this tour begins at the Bougainvillea Hotel and continues to the Caribbean jungle of Tortuguero, which will give the traveler a phenomenal experience.

Our Photo Gallery:

If you think that traveling by boat through the natural channels of Tortuguero or having the opportunity to observe Spider Monkeys, even walking with the turtles that come to visit the beach, is excellent, think about the fact that the next place where we will rest is located at the foot of the most impressive volcano in Costa Rica, with views of the lake and world-class trails, Arenal Observatory Lodge will make your feel absolutely welcome.

To finish this tour we will move to the Costa Rican Pacific to enjoy a place full of nature such as impressive trees, Scarlet Macaw, top-notch restaurants, and one of the best beaches in the central Pacific.
