Amazing company! We had such an amazing time in Costa Rica! I hadn’t been abroad in decades and had so many questions and really no idea how to plan a trip. Randall at Coast to Coast was phenomenal! He set up a wonderful trip for us that was a perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. He responded to my millions of questions quickly, reminded us of things we had to do before travel, and helped us every step of the way. Definitely will be using Coast to Coast again!!

Great Costa Rican Adventure – We did the 12 day Coast to Coast Costa Rica Adventure trip with five of our friends. It was without a doubt one of the best trips we've ever experienced. We were impressed with the way CtoC took care of us right from picking us up at the airport, to sending us on our way after the trip concluded. They provided top notch equipment, accommodations and meals, which to us is good value for our travel dollars. On the adventure, the five guides made sure we were safe at all times, and gave us excellent assistance. We were a varied group - and all levels of skill were accommodated - we never felt rushed or hurried along. Our favorite section of the trip was staying at the river camps after rafting the Pacuare River. If you like adventure - then hike, bike, raft and kayak across Costa Rica!

Details

Day 1

Welcome to Costa Rica! Find your new favorite dish during a hands-on cooking lesson with a local

We’re totally thrilled to have you here in San Jose, the bustling capital city of Costa Rica! First up, there’s no better way to discover a country than through its cuisine, so we hope you’re ready to cook up a storm. Take your culinary skills to the next level and discover delicious Costa Rican cuisine during a fun hands-on cooking lesson! Bound to be filled with tasty moments and plenty of laughter with your host, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where you can take pointers from a true local. Learn about tasty ingredients used in Costa Rican dishes, discover unique household customs, use new cooking techniques, and prepare a mouthwatering meal to savor alongside your new friends.

Day 2

Head to Turrialba and embark on an epic canyoning and ziplining adventure

Time to get pumped for adventure! After a hearty breakfast, we’re off to Turrialba. You’ll be greeted by spectacular views of Costa Rica’s rural countryside at this charming town surrounded by the lush landscapes of the Central Valley in Cartago Province. In the distance, you’ll be able to spot the active 3,340-meter Turrialba Volcano in all its glory. Turrialba is a hotspot for eco-adventures and we’re kicking off your first day here with an awesome canyoning and ziplining expedition in nearby Calle Chirraca. Our expert guides will walk you through the gear and equipment you’ll be using, and ensure you are given a crash course in the techniques involved when making your way through the canyon. Expect some high-adrenaline moments on this quest through the wilderness: rappel and descend cliffs and waterfalls, zipline across multiple canopy cables, and walk across hanging bridges. If you’re lucky, the native wildlife might come out to keep you company, so keep your eyes peeled!

Day 3

Tackle the mountain biking trails of Pejibaye Valley

Fuel up this morning, you’ll want to have a good breakfast for yet another epic adventure. This time, we’re headed to Pejibaye, located roughly an hour south of Turrialba. An emerging ecotourism hub, the town lies in a valley between the protected forests of Tapanti National Park and the La Marta Wildlife Refuge. We'll hop on our front suspension mountain bikes and zip through the meandering trails of this incredible cloud forest-clad valley. Keep a lookout for incredible animal species — the surrounding area is home to several intriguing creatures like the white-faced capuchin monkey, agouti, and resplendent quetzal. You might even catch a glimpse of a wild ocelot or jaguarundi between the trees. (If participants get tired, a 4x4 support vehicle will be available)

Day 4

Take a thrilling journey down the Pacuare River on an epic rafting adventure

Rise and shine! Today, we’ll be heading back to San Jose, but not before one last exhilarating adventure, so be sure to indulge in a high-energy breakfast this morning. We’ll be stopping at the breathtaking Pacuare River and embark on a splash-tastic rafting expedition down multiple class III and IV rapids. Considered one of the best places in the world for whitewater rafting, this stunning river winds through the heart of Costa Rica’s most verdant jungles and flows right into the Caribbean Sea. You will have the chance to fuel up with some lunch halfway through the activity. At the end of your rafting journey, you’ll be transferred the rest of the way to your accommodation in San Jose.

All aboard — enjoy an epic two-hour party bus tour in San Jose!

You’ll arrive back in San Jose in time to enjoy the evening to the fullest. Time to get serious with the partying! Why hit the clubs when you can roll through San Jose and have your very own party on wheels? Get the music started, bring out the best drinks, and experience San Jose by night with an awesome party bus experience you’ll never forget.
