Costa Rica Ecotourism Facts
After the Second World War, Costa Rica abolished the military. It then diverted its military budget into supporting culture and tourism plus establishing and maintaining its numerous National Parks, wildlife refuges, and reserves.
Costa Rica is home to over 13,000 plant life varieties, making up nearly 5% of the world’s total biodiversity!
Amazingly, over 23% of Costa Rica is now protected through nature wildlife preserves, biological reserves (to preserve the country’s unique flora and fauna) and unbelievable National Parks. Many of these protected areas still have untouched virgin rainforests.
Although Costa Rica is a small country with fewer than 5 million people, it has one of the most stable and robust democracies in Central and South America. This has been wonderful for supporting sustainable ecotourism in Costa Rica.
Costa Rica’s commitment to sustained ecotourism has earned this “Jewel of Central America” a well-deserved worldwide reputation as a land of rare natural beauty. This has been helping to consistently make Costa Rica a top tourist destination and a natural for guided eco-tours.
Costa Ricans continually promote cultural and ecological education programs. They also remain dedicated to preserving Costa Rica’s rich biodiversity, pristine sandy beaches, and lush tropical rainforests.
This unique approach to sustainable ecotourism makes Costa Rica eco-adventure tours so incredible.
Eco Adventure Tour Highlights
Our Caravan eco tours in Costa Rica from San Jose are true adventures. They are also fully escorted by qualified naturalist guides who share their enthusiasm and extensive knowledge about their beautiful country, its people, and the land's amazing biodiversity.
Caravan Tours’ fully guided eco tours in Costa Rica may include:
San José Costa Rica
Begin and end your eco tour in San José Costa Rica, the capital, with plenty of time to explore this colonial city, which includes Plaza de la Cultura and Central Park.
Arenal & Poas Volcanoes
Weather permitting, tourists marvel at the mile-wide crater of Poás Volcano. However, Poas volcano has been experiencing recent eruptions so may not be part of some available tours. Near Fortuna, you can safely view the softly glowing lava flow of Costa Rica’s Arenal volcano; perhaps while soaking in volcanic hot springs!
Costa Rica Rainforest Hike & Hanging Bridges Tour
No Costa Rica eco nature adventure tour would be complete without a rainforest hike. Experience hiking through the rainforest jungle canopy (one of Costa Rica’s top tourist attractions). This part of the tour also includes a visit to Arenal Hanging Bridges.
Sea Turtle Nesting Beach
Impressive efforts have been made to protect Costa Rica’s endangered sea turtles. This tour includes a 3-night stay at Barcelo Tambor Beach Resort near the sea turtle nesting beach on Nicoya Peninsula.

Why Travel with Caravan?
Excellence Since 1952
You can trust our years of experience with tours of superb quality and excellent value. Caravan has enjoyed the same family management and ownership since 1952.
Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
Stay at park lodges, scenic resorts, and excellent hotels in great locations. See hotel descriptions on each tour page.
Most meals included within Latin America. For USA and Canada tours, included meals are listed on each itinerary page. Bottled water is provided on motorcoaches in Latin America.
Enjoy complete sightseeing with more visits, extra features, and local guides.
Fully Guided by Tour Directors
All tours conducted from start to finish by professional tour directors, who are fluent in English, experienced, and fun.
Caravan includes all activities listed in the tour itinerary page. Caravan does not sell any optional activities which can add hundreds of dollars to your tour price. Your free time is scheduled in great settings where there is no need to buy additional expensive activities.
Caravan will not bring you to overpriced shops in exchange for payments. Caravan gives you ample opportunity and time for great shopping, and the freedom to choose where and when to shop.
Great Value, Book Early
Caravan’s strong buying power gives you great vacations at prices much lower than you can find anywhere. In a typical year, most of our tours sell out quickly. Book early for the date you prefer and the best air fare.
How does Caravan Tours sell these tours for such a low cost?
Caravan delivers volume to our suppliers, who in turn reward us with their very best prices. We in turn pass these savings on to you, and you reward us by buying our tours.
