Costa Rica, the Original Eco-Tour Destination

In the 1990's a movement began in tourism that brought a greater level of conscience in regard to the impacts that travelers can have on their travel destinations.

Costa Rica was an early innovator in eco-tourism, a breed of travel that gives back to the local environment and community by minimizing negative impacts of travelers. Numerous eco-lodges opened and offered tours of the rain forest with local guides that not only explain the value of the rainforest to travelers, but instill value of the rainforest in the minds of locals to avoid further deforestation by local populations. Over 25% of Costa Rica's land is protected, mostly by their excellent system of National Parks.

Adventure Life uses only the most ecologically-friendly lodges and tour guides so you can rest assured that your trip has a positive impact on the people and environment of Costa Rica.

Getting to Costa Rica and Back - Transportation Guide

Most people get to tiny Costa Rica by flying to either San Jose or Liberia Airports. San Jose's Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) is the country's most trafficked and located in the center of the country.

Those traveling to the northern Pacific beaches of Guanacaste may fly into Liberia's Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR). 

Once in Costa Rica, distances traveled are relatively short in this small Central American country. In a few hours from the capital of San Jose by car, van or bus, one can get to both the Caribbean coast and the Pacific coast. The Panamerican highway runs from Nicaragua in the north to Panama in the south where you'll find the remote Osa Penisula & Corcovado National park.
