Costa Rica: Jungles & Rainforests

2015 Prices From $2,389 plus on-tour air for 8 Days - Tauck Bridges

Life is pretty colorful on a Costa Rica vacation, where even butterflies like the electric-blue morpho make visitors gape in awe. More than 850 different species of birds make their homes here, from emerald-green parrots, scarlet macaws and bright-billed "flying banana" toucans to purple-throated hummingbirds, orange-bellied trogons, and red and green plumed quetzals. Green turtles and iguanas, red frogs and white-faced monkeys are also a big draw too, as you’ll find out when you explore tropical rainforests and jungles on a rafting trip and a nature hike during overnight stays in riverfront lodges. Cruise on a lake overshadowed by a "restless" volcano. Want to get the ultimate hands-on Costa Rica vacation experience? Take a sky-tram ride or a zip-line adventure through the rainforest and learn all about living in Costa Rica when you visit an organic pineapple plantation, and see – as well as taste – how the cacao fruit is transformed into chocolate. And the best part – share it all with your family on Costa Rica: Jungles & Rainforests.

The Tauck Difference

What a wonderful time we had on your "Jungles and Rainforests" trip! My two grandchildren and I traveled with a friend and his two grandchildren. All six of us enjoyed the trip. As a former travel agent, I had booked Tauck trips but had never before experienced one; I am a convert.
