This remarkable day-long journey begins with an air-conditioned ride through the gorgeous Costa Rican countryside. Your destination is the world-renowned Rainforest Adventures Aerial Tram.
Step aboard an open-air eight-passenger gondola and enjoy the peaceful, silent glide through the forest's canopy. Verdant plant life, hanging gardens, and pretty waterfalls are part of the exhilarating aerial views over this 222-acre conservation park. Watch for wildlife and for views of the Pacific Ocean right from your seat.
Savor a delicious Costa Rican-style lunch, which typically includes a pasta salad, rice, beans, steamed vegetables, beef or chicken and natural juice.
An open riverboat is the perfect platform for exploring the Tarcoles River and Guacalillo Estuary. Noted for its mangrove forests, the estuary is home to many birds, including the cuckoo, hummingbirds, Panama flycatcher, herons, egrets, and the elusive scarlet macaw. This brilliant ecosystem supports a wide variety of water birds such as ospreys, cormorants, pelicans and also, thrillingly, one of the largest crocodile colonies in Central America.
Back at the landing, enjoy a delicious fresh fruit buffet and soft drinks before returning to the ship.
