Costa Rica Rios’ Adventure Honeymoon Package Offers 8 Days of Pure Joy

Are you looking for a honeymoon destination that offers a fine mix of excitement and easy living? If so, why not consider spending a week or more in Costa Rica? The country offers much in both areas. We know, because we’ve been offering honeymooners exceptional Costa Rica vacation packages for years.

Take our 8 Day Volcanoes, Jungles, Beaches, Adventure Honeymoon Package for instance. It includes whitewater adventure on both the Pejibaye and Pacuare Rivers. For those unfamiliar with them, the rivers are nestled within the Turrialba Valley. The valley is also home to an ancient archaeological site and the Turrialba Volcano. The Pejibaye connects to the Reventazon River, which eventually makes it all the way to the Caribbean Sea. The Pejibaye offers Class I and II rapids, so it’s an ideal place to get try out whitewater kayaking for beginners. The Pacuare River, on the other, is a lot feistier, and perfect for whitewater rafting. Originating in the Talamanca mountain range, it boasts Class III and IV rapids, primary rainforest, steep canyons and stunning waterfalls.

Speaking of the Talamanca range, it is home to some pretty amazing animals. You may also potentially spy some of the creatures in Manuel Antonio national park. It is an exceptional place to check out a large portion of the country’s monkey population. A visit to the park is included within the adventure honeymoon package. Other highlights within the park are four beaches, coral reefs and the Punta Cathedral.

Of course whitewater rafting and national parks are not all that’s on offer in Costa Rica. Our adventure honeymoon package also includes opportunities to zipline through the jungle, surf, sunbathe, snorkel and enjoy the local cuisine. Eateries to consider visiting while in the area include the Barba Roja and the Kapi Kapi. Both offer tantalizing dishes and hospitality that are sure to satisfy all comers.

Great Reasons to Book Costa Rica Rios’ Costa Rica Vacation Packages

The resplendent country of Costa Rica is quickly establishing itself as one of the most sought after destinations in the world. Part of the country’s appeal may be attributed to its abundant flora and fauna. Among them are Cattleya orchids, strawberry frogs, blue morphos, scarlet macaws and three-toed sloths. There are also a bevy of pulse-quickening recreational opportunities available like zip-lining, surfing, whitewater rafting and canyoning. Those that want to experience as much of those offerings as possible should consider contacting Costa Rica Rios. Here’s why:

Insider Information

Variety of Offerings

Our Costa Rica vacation packages have a wide array of week-long tours to choose from. They range from whitewater focused excursions to multi-sport, family and honeymoon specials.

Eco-Conscious Costa Rica Adventure Tours

Do you love a thrill as much as you love Mother Earth? Choose Costa Rica Rios with a clear conscience, knowing that we are committed to preserving the exquisite landscapes which set the scene for our Costa Rica adventure tours.

Our Week of Adventures package, which includes everything from ziplining to surfing to canyoning, is a fantastic opportunity to connect with nature, get your heart pumping, and let loose. Costa Rica Rios wants to supply you with eight days of exhilaration, but we also want to ensure our activities respect the natural sites we visit. That’s why we’ve taken a number of steps to ensure that our tours are as considerate to the environment as they are to your enjoyment.

For instance, as a member of 1% For the Planet, we donate one percent of our annual turnover to a network of more than 3,000 environmental organizations worldwide–a cause most of our customers would celebrate as they absorb the breathtaking wildlife on our canopy tour or the colorful sea creatures while snorkeling in the Caribbean. Speaking of treetops, we only use recycled or sustainably sourced paper in our business. We also support a local company that produces biodegradable water bottles, so you’ll stay hydrated as you mountain bike down the Irazú volcano or hike through the jungle hoping to spot a howler monkey.

On our Week of Adventures tour, you’ll also go surfing, whitewater rafting, and kayaking–activities which instil respect for Costa Rica’s amazing water sources. To help keep these systems clean, we have a recycling program and a compost program where we collect and donate all organic waste to an organic cocoa farm.

After a morning of surf lessons, you’ll want to refuel with the delicious, locally-sourced food we provide, which reduces our carbon footprint (and increases the taste factor). Of course, we provide easy transport to and from all of these natural wonders, and Costa Rica Rios also has a No Trace Policy, meaning that we strive to leave the visited environments as we found them.

It’s time to escape into the wild and celebrate all that it has to offer; contact us now to set your adventure in motion. After eight days of our all-inclusive vacation package, you’ll be amazed (and maybe a bit exhausted) by the splendors that Costa Rica Rios has to show you.

Costa Rica Vacation Packages – Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking

Looking for an exciting vacation that will provide thrilling adventure, breathtaking scenery, and exotic flora and fauna? Look no further than Costa Rica Rios and our many costa rica vacation packages. Our whitewater rafting or kayaking packages provide all of the memorable thrills of a lifetime. And they can be customized to your interests and ability levels.

The rivers we run in Costa Rica rise out of the mountain spine that divides the Atlantic watershed from the Pacific watershed. The Rio Sarapiqui rises out of the highlands on the eastern side of the cloud forests that are also home to Poas Volcano. The Rio Pejibaye and Pacuare River have headwaters out of the Talamanca Mountains. Each river has a distinctive nature, but all provide exciting whitewater and scenery.

The trade winds from the west bring copious amounts of rain down on the mountains as the moisture carried by the winds hits the colder air in the higher elevations. This abundance of moisture also provides unique ecosystems such as the cloud forests with their huge diversity of plant and animal life. When you travel the rivers, it’s not unusual to see anteaters, sloths, iguanas and capuchin monkeys along the way. Birds of all kinds, including the colorful toucan, parakeets, ospry, hawks, and blue herons, are as entertaining as the whitewater. The distractions of the scenery and wildlife can almost make you forget the adventure you came to experience.

The culture, people and cuisine of Costa Rica are also part of the draw. Our experienced guides always have your comfort and safety in mind. While you experience the adventure, our crew will create meals you will remember and your lodgings will always be comfortable and luxurious. The people you meet are the heart of Costa Rica and their charm and character will warm your memories forever.

When you’re ready to create the adventure of your dreams, contact us for more information and any personalization of your plans for the trip. We will make your kayak tour of Costa Rican rivers the best adventure travel you will ever experience.
