Costa Rica Rainforest Attractions
Caravan’s all inclusive Costa Rica rainforest tours from San Jose include the following rainforest tours:
Rio Frio Rainforest Cruise - Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge
Cruise fully guided on the Rio Frio River that meanders through the Costa Rica rainforest of Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge, a protected sanctuary for everything from caimans and water walking lizards to black turtles and howler monkeys.
Tarcoles River Rainforest Cruise - Carara Biological Reserve
The protected Costa Rica rainforest of Carara Biological Reserve in Guanacaste (aka, the River of Crocodiles) is home to the beautiful and colorful Scarlet Macaw, which is now an endangered species because of the pet trade and the loss of its natural habitat. The Scarlet Macaw is just one of the many exotic birds you’ll see on this rainforest bird watching tour.
Escallonia Cloud Forest Rainforest Tour
This Escallonia cloud forest rainforest tour is near Poas Volcano National Park. Costa Rica cloud forests tend to have less rain but higher humidity and fog like conditions due to low lying clouds, making this an ideal environment for abundant moss growth, plus wild orchids and ferns.
Costa Rica Rainforest Canopy Tours by Aerial Tram
Braulio Carillo Park - Along with spectacular cascading waterfalls, and hiking through virgin rainforests, the world famous Costa Rica rainforest aerial tram tour is a top rated tourist attraction. Zipping through the rainforest canopy, this Costa Rica rainforest tour will give you the best opportunity for spotting all the spectacular wildlife and indigenous plants. Caravan’s rainforest aerial tram tour is a very low-impact means of enjoying the Costa Rica rainforest, allowing you to spot spectacular wildlife and different other creatures like toucans, hummingbirds, frogs, butterflies, and a variety of indigenous monkeys.
Manuel Antonio National Park - Don’t underestimate Manuel Antonio National Park! Even though it is the smallest national park in Costa Rica it boasts exceptional virgin rainforest hiking trails and several beautiful beaches. This area is also famous for its beautiful coral reefs. In 2011, Manuel Antonio National Park was named among Forbe’s Top 12 most beautiful national parks in the world. Guests of our Manuel Antonio rainforest aerial tram tour are often overwhelmed by the exceptional wildlife and land biodiversity of this rainforest park.

Why Travel with Caravan?
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.
In Costa Rica, Panama, and Guatemala, Caravan includes all meals. For USA and Canada tours, included meals are listed on each itinerary page. In Latin America, bottled water is provided free on the motorcoach and purified water is provided at the meals.
