    Ready for a deeper dive into the wilderness? An absolute must for nature lovers, Corcovado National Park is a pristine experience whose remote location makes it much less frequented by tourists – so you can skip the crowds while you immerse yourself in its incredible biodiversity. With ancient rain forest, abundant wildlife, tropical birds and a teeming ocean reef, this is one of nature’s most impressive displays.

    The Osa Peninsula

    Located in southwest of the country, the Osa Peninsula is home to at least half of all species found in Costa Rica. It’s a brilliant opportunity for the intrepid family to experience the jungle world of leaf cutter ants and the rich biodiversity of Corcovado National Park.

    Primary Rain Forest

    Ancient and untouched by human activity, primary rain forest is as pristine as it gets. It’s 1000 years of uninterrupted nature; huge trees, draping vines and an overhead canopy that blocks out the sky. Hike lush trails through giant Corcovado National Park, teeming with busy wildlife — monkeys, sloths, scarlet macaws, tapirs, coatis, harpy eagles and more all live here.

    Caño Island

    The coast of this biological reserve is a breeding ground for humpback whales and frequented by dolphins and sea turtles. The crystalline waters allow excellent visibility making the surrounding coral reef the best snorkeling in the country. Glide past manta rays, white tip reef sharks, parrot fish and schools of jacks – you’ll never forget it.

    Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge

    Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge, tucked away in the trees and cooled by the Pacific Ocean, is a 170 acre private reserve bordering Corcovado National Park. Carefully designed and built by an American naturalist, this hilltop jungle lodge has it all: a prime location on the edge of Corcovado National Park, resident naturalists, luxury accommodations and first-class service and food. Spanish colonial style cabins are spread around a garden for maximum privacy. Guest rooms have elegant furniture, four-poster beds, and huge tile bathrooms. The sunset margarita bar at the top of the hill has excellent views. A tractor-towed cart transports guests and luggage. The restaurant serves upscale dinners and packs picnic lunches. Laundry services are available. Hair appliances, such as hair dryers, are not allowed.

    Hotel Bougainvillea

    The Hotel Bougainvillea is located only 20 minutes from San Jose Airport in the province of Alajuela. Set on a gorgeous landscape of 10 acres of lush gardens, the hotel features 80 comfortable rooms, each with a balcony and an amazing view. Other highlights include a pool, a tennis court, a gift shop, a restaurant, free Wi-Fi, hair dryers, laundry service, and a business center.

    Thomson Family Adventures will attempt to adhere to this itinerary and its hotels as much as possible. However, certain conditions (political, climatic, environmental, cultural, or availability) may necessitate changes in the accommodations.
