Earth Journeys, created by Tauck and BBC Earth! Active volcanoes, misty cloud forests, inland rivers, coffee plantations, tropical gardens and the mysterious jungle – all on an eco-rich Costa Rica travel adventure! One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment. Visits to a butterfly garden within Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, a float trip along an inland jungle river, and sightseeing excursions with expert naturalists offer insights into the region's unique ecosystems, birds and wildlife. Stays at acclaimed eco-resorts... a guided tour of a working coffee plantation... a zip line adventure in the rainforest canopy tour... a stay at a thermal resort featuring volcanically heated hot springs... a visit with a farm family that has lived on a jungle river for many generations... close-up views of a dizzying array of native flora and fauna... and a farewell celebration at an artisan chocolatier in San José are all among the highlights of Tauck's Costa Rica travel experience!
