21 Aug Costa Rica: 5 Unique Rainforest Experiences
Costa Rica may cover just 0.03% of our planet’s surface, but it’s home to more than 6% of our biodiversity!
Located just between the 8 and 11 degrees North from the equator, Costa Rica is tiny little country with just above the 51000 square kilometers of territory.
Through many years the country has been concern about the protection of those ecosystems turning this in to a one of a kind destination.
Among the most remarkable developments we find the: “Rainforest Adventure Park” right at the edge between the lowlands of the Caribbean and the mounting ranges of the Braulio Carrillo National Park.
Just 50 minutes from San José is Rainforest Adventures Braulio Carrillo, one of the most sustainable Eco-Adventure parks in Costa Rica. This is a theme park with real fun, relaxation spaces, adrenaline experiences, environmental education programs with activities to choose from such, cable car, ziplining, nature walks, hiking, and bird watching.
Rainforest Adventures Braulio Carrillo Park began its journey 24 years ago with the aim of providing tourists with sustainable and recreational contact with nature.
475 hectares of the tropical rainforest are protected and the facilities are 100% sustainable with the environment.
The park offers total accessibility, ample parking, bathrooms, green areas, roofed areas, restaurant and total logistics for events such as incentives, teamwork, meetings, parties, weddings, corporate activities, among others.
Being a worldwide pioneer of a cable car in the middle of the tropical rainforest, this tour is positioned as one of the most sought after by foreign visitors and national tourists who want to know the only guided tour of the longest route cable car in Costa Rica. In addition to this tour, ziplining and the all-inclusive (6 in1) are the safest and best-selling tours countrywide.
