Costa Rica Rafting
Costa Rica Monkey

A High Adrenaline Itinerary Awaits

This is the only Wild Women adventure that combines whitewater rafting, ziplining and a bow and arrow competition! On this trip we paddleboard on the Pacific and search for crocs and howler monkeys along the snaking Tempisque River in Parque Nacional Palo Verde. Birders will go bananas for the roseate spoonbills, wood storks and black-bellied whistling ducks. Expect a truly elevated stay at Arenal Observatory Lodge & Trails where the panoramas of the commanding volcano and Lake Arenal pack a punch.


Experience Costa Rica From Tree Canopy to Coast

A Balanced Bite of Central America

On this thoughtfully balanced edible and cultural adventure, we support Retus, a network of women-owned businesses and learn Costa Rican cocina secrets like how to make tortilla de queso (cheese tortillas) with Doña Miriam. Foodies will love the lesson on the chocolate-making process at the cacao plantation and daily dose of hyperlocal coffee! There’s also an introduction to regional favorites like palm heart, a riverside burrito experience and an authentic Indigenous Maleku lunch. Memorable moments are easy to find at the Proyecto Asis Costa Rica Wildlife Sanctuary where we help prep meals and enrichment toys for the rescued animals at the centre and search for the sloths in the treetops!
