GUANACASTE TOURS

What makes Guanacaste, Costa Rica vacations so great is that each day brings a different adventure.

There are so many things to do in Guanacaste, from exploring eight national parks and other nature tours, to adventure tours, and cultural and educational tours.
Hike or mountain bike around an active volcano with steaming geysers and bubbling volcanic mud pits. Then soak in natural mineral hot springs and feel your body relax and rejuvenate. Ride horseback like in an Old West cowboy film across prairie and along shade-covered dusty trails to an impressive waterfall for a refreshing swim. Discover the wonders of the rainforest crossing hanging bridges high in the tree canopy, giving you a glimpse into a rarely-seen world. Thrill to whitewater rafting in a fast tropical river, or rappel down a rushing waterfall. Manta rays, sea turtles and huge schools of tropical fish make snorkeling in Guanacaste exciting. And everyone must experience zip lining in Costa Rica, pioneer of canopy zip line tours. An adventurers’ paradise, the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica must be experienced to be believed. Guanacaste Tours invites you to enjoy this amazing corner of Costa Rica on one of the many carefully selected one-day Guanacaste excursions.
