You’ll overnight in San José, Arenal, and Monteverde. </BR></BR>You’ll get up close to nature on this Costa Rica tour. A highlight is a walk with a knowledgeable Naturalist in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.

Another highlight of this Costa Rica tour is your time spent at the Arenal Hanging Bridges.
