If you imagine Edna with blue hair and her husband Bob when you hear the words “travel tour,” than you are not picturing these customized small group adventure tours. The truth is travel tours have come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and old ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the independent, adventure traveler. That’s right—active, interesting and adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a foreign place. You’ll be hiking and swimming and socializing with locals, not snapping pictures next to retirees. The groups are also kept small, usually capping out at 16 people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly huge group of gawking tourists. Instead, you’ll be boldly adventuring with fellow travelers and active tourists. These tours don’t just scratch the surface of the places you visit, either. In fact, by using a combination of local and experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than you would on your own. Want to see all the best Costa Rica has to offer? We’ve got a guide who knows where to take you. Want to venture into the jungle, see monkeys and other wildlife? We’ve also got a guide for that. Also, because these tours have already been developed to showcase the best of the best, you’ll save yourself from countless hours of potentially pointless research trying to find out where to go and what to eat. Plus, you won’t get lost in the jungle. Or on the beach. Or an city streets. Oh, and don’t worry, you definitely won’t be experiencing Costa Rica from the window of some bus the entire time. These tours have you hiking, boating and adventuring into the wild, all while seeing the highlights this country has to offer and getting off the beaten path. Book one of these three great tours to Costa Rica, pack your bags and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
