The verdant northern plains
With its abundant rivers, waterfalls and bodies of water, the northern plains are home to a biodiversity that appreciates its green rainforests all year round. A boat trip on the Río Frío to reach the village of Caño Negro and its refuge allows travellers to observe many species of reptiles, water birds and amphibians, including the red-eyed tree frog, Costa Rica's emblem.
The splendor of the Río Celeste
The Río Celeste river, which owes its name to the intense colour of its waters, is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful rivers not to be missed. A visit to the Tenorio National Park, which protects the surroundings of the volcano of the same name, allows you to discover the volcanic activity at the origin of this natural wonder.
Wellness at Arenal Volcano
With its perfect conical shape, the Arenal volcano is considered one of the most beautiful volcanoes in the world. Still active, one of its slopes bears the scars of the last eruption in 2011. The mineral-rich thermal waters of the Tabacón River have made La Fortuna a popular destination for travellers looking for moments of relaxation in an idyllic setting.
Propitious for adventure tourism
To the delight of adventurers, tourism has also developed in the region around the practice of sports activities such as hiking, horseback riding and rafting. These excursions will allow you to discover spectacular panoramas and waterfalls such as those of Bajos del Toro, but also to get a strong dose of adrenaline as you descend the rapids of the Sarapiquí River.
The Maleku Indigenous Reserve
Among the first inhabitants of Costa Rica, the Malekus of the Guatosu community are now only 650 indigenous people living in the villages of Margarita, El Sol and Tonjibe. Proud of their history and ancestral culture, the Malekus appreciate the cultural exchanges during which they introduce visitors to the culture of medicinal plants, their customs, craftsmanship and traditional cuisine.
