After breakfast, travel by boat to Moon Island where you will tour the Inca ruins of Inak Uyu on the northeast shore, which are believed to be the convent for the Virgins of the Sun. After visiting Moon Island, you will sail to Copacabana. Explore the cathedral with its dark Virgin of Candelaria statue and museum of European and local religious art, learning about the mystical spiritualism and religion traditions that take place here.
We are so glad that we chose Adventure Life. The service is top-notch. Everything is well taken care of and we just have to print the documents and go. Franny even gave us timely updates on possible airport strike.

The ability (of Kassandra) to tailor a guided trip to my exact preferences is very valuable to me, as well as the ability (of Kassandra) to provide expert guidance on destinations and travel dates. I also appreciate the ability of the backup staff (Maria Ignacio, Exito Travel) to coordinate all the details to make the travel logistics easy for the customer.

Our Costa Rica trip was amazing! Kassandra planned everything and the excursions, hotels, overall organization were outstanding. Everything worked out smoothly, the excursions guides were knowledgeable allowing us to see so much of the fauna and flora of the country. The hotels were great as well, all in fantastic locations and with beautiful views.
