Costa Rica Outdoor Adventure For Couples

Costa Rica Outdoor Adventure For Couples

Costa Rica is an outdoor paradise! What could be nicer than experiencing adventure in tropical Costa Rica after a long quarantine period! Fresh air and action await you and you can safely discover the different regions while following all hygiene protocols. Some of Costa Rica's beaches are so extensive and hidden that even without distance rules you won't meet anyone for a long time if you don't want to.

The adventure in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica is off to a start! Your route will take you to different regions of the country, over mountains to the coast, from the cloud forest to the evergreen rainforest, to picturesque beaches, and to impressive waterfalls. Discover the local flora and fauna on hanging bridges, or while canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, and, if you wish, even snorkelling. Refresh yourself like never before as you white-water raft over rapids, surrounded by a gorgeous rainforest panorama. And last but not least, the stately silhouette of the nearly perfect cone of the Arenal Volcano that stretches towards the sky. Adventure and activities within the scope of all protective measures await you on your dream trip to Costa Rica. You'll be talking about this amazing experience long after you head back home.

What makes this trip special:

  • Selected, professional providers take all security measures very seriously to guarantee you a safe trip
  • We comply with all official hygiene and safety protocols in order to protect our guests in the best possible way.
  • Travel safely and independently in your rental car
  • Discover the majestic Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna
  • Experience the mystical cloud forest in Monteverde from hanging bridges
  • Relax on the Caribbean coast - breathe in the Pura Vida lifestyle!

In our following travel itinerary, we have selected for you the hotels Pedacito de Cielo and Hacienda Guachipelin which are both members of the Rainforest Alliance. You will also find the hotels La Quinta de Sarapiqui and the Palma Real Hotel & Casino in the program, which, like ARA Tours, have been awarded level 5, the highest possible certificate for sustainable tourism (CST) given by the Ministry of Tourism of Costa Rica.

Afterwards, you have free time and can choose to go on an optional additional excursion on-site.

  • Dominik

    • "Guten Tag Jennifer
      Wie wir bereirs Simone mitgeteilt haben, ist der Aufenthalt im Lapa Rios extrem bereichernd, dank der gut geplanten Bepflanzung und der unberührten Umgebung sehen wir sehr viele Tiere. Entgegen den Plänen vor dem Aufenthalt möchten wir zum Schluss nicht mehr Tiere in Gefangenschaft besuchen. Wir werden die paar Stunden vor dem Abflug noch einen Blick in die Stadt werfen.
      Dir und deinem Team danken wir ganz herzlich für die hervorragende Beratung und die permanente Unterstützung! Wir können Ara Tours nur weiter empfehlen.
      Beste Grüsse."
    • "Good day Jennifer
      As we have already told Simone, the stay at Lapa Rios is extremely enriching, thanks to the well planned planting and the untouched environment we see a lot of animals. Contrary to the plans before the stay, we do not want to visit more animals in captivity at the end. We will have a look at the few hours before we leave.
      We thank you and your team very much for the excellent advice and the permanent support! We can only recommend Ara Tours.
      Best regards."
    • "Buenos días Jennifer
      Como ya le hemos dicho a Simone, la estancia en Lapa Rios fue extremadamente enriquecedora, gracias a la gira bien planificad, y al entorno virgen, vimos muchos animales. Contrariamente a los planes antes de la estancia, no queremos visitar más animales en cautividad al final. Veremos más animales durante las pocas horas que nos quedan antes de irnos.
      Le agradecemos mucho a usted y a su equipo por los excelentes consejos y el apoyo permanente. Sólo podemos recomendar Ara Tours.
      Saludos cordiales."
  • LG Daniel, Jana und Theo

    • "Ein großes Dankeschön, Ihr habt unseren Urlaub gerettet!
      Wo fange ich/ wir an? Bereits in Deutschland hat die Kommunikation sehr gut funktioniert. Die Hilfe von Euch insbesondere durch Aline ist hier zu erwähnen. Diese war von der ersten WhatsApp Nachricht bis zur letzten fantastisch. Wir kennen Costa Rica bereits, daher wussten wir was wir wollen und was nicht. Trotzdem war AraTours für uns ein wichtiger Ansprechpartner. Gerade weil unser eigentlicher Reiseanbieter 36 Stunden vor Abflug unsere Reise gecancelt hatte, sind wir Aline sehr dankbar. Sie hat sofort alles für uns organisiert. Ob Hotel im schönen Punta Leona, ob die Touren in die Nationalparks, selbst der Shuttleservice mit dem großartigen Fahrer Guillerno Ortega muss hier erwähnt werden. Wir sind Dir, liebe Aline, aber auch dem gesamten AraTours Team sehr dankbar. Auch Ihr habt unsere knapp 3-wöchige Reise nach Costa Rica wieder unvergesslich werden lassen. Wir kommen gerne wieder und werden dann natürlich wieder über AraTours buchen."
    • "A big thank to you, you saved our vacation!
      Communication already worked very well in Germany. The help from you, especially through Aline, should be mentioned here. This was fantastic from the first WhatsApp message to the last. We already know Costa Rica, so we knew what we wanted and what not. Ara Tours was an important point of contact for us. We are very grateful to Aline precisely because our actual travel agent cancelled our trip 36 hours before departure. She immediately organized everything for us. Whether the hotel in beautiful Punta Leona, the tours to the national parks, even the shuttle service with the great driver Guillerno Ortega has to be mentioned here. We are very grateful to you, dear Aline, but also to the entire Ara Tours team. You too made our almost 3-week trip to Costa Rica unforgettable again. We would love to come back and of course we will book through Ara Tours again."
    • "Un gran agradecimiento, ¡nos han salvado las vacaciones!
      ¿Por dónde empiezo/empezamos? Ya desde Alemania la comunicación funcionó muy bien. Debo mencionar la gran ayuda de ustedes, especialmente a través de Aline. Esto fue fantástico desde el primer mensaje de WhatsApp hasta el último. Ya conocíamos Costa Rica, así que sabíamos lo que queríamos y lo que no. Sin embargo, ARA Tours fue un contacto importante para nosotros. Especialmente porque nuestro actual proveedor de viajes había cancelado nuestro viaje 36 horas antes de la salida, por eso estamos muy agradecidos con Aline porque inmediatamente organizó todo para nosotros. Desde el hotel en la hermosa Punta Leona, en las excursiones en los parques nacionales, incluso el servicio de transporte con el gran conductor Guillerno Ortega debe ser mencionado también. Te estamos muy agradecidos, querida Aline, pero también a todo el equipo de ARA Tours. También han hecho que nuestro viaje de 3 semanas a Costa Rica fuera inolvidable. Estaremos encantados de volver y, por supuesto, reservaremos de nuevo a través de ARA Tours."

    • "Gracias, todo ha salido muy bien. ¡Super organización y en todo momento tuvimos su ayuda y apoyo de usted, la información siempre fue rápida!
      Nos ha gustado mucho. La conclusión en Quepos fue la "cereza en el pastel". Nos gustó mucho la playa del Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio. Nos hubiera gustado quedarnos más tiempo, pero nos llevamos a casa muchas impresiones hermosas e inolvidables. ¡PURA VIDA!
      ¡Muchas gracias a ti Aline! Los recomendaremos con gusto a otros".

    • Guten Tag, wir waren ab dem 27.11. auf einer Rundreise in Costa Rica, welche über BigXtra gebucht und von ihnen organisiert wurde. Wir möchten uns auf diesem Wege sehr herzlich bedanken. Die Rundfahrt war einfach der Hammer !! Die Betreuung durch Carlos war eifach nur Spitze. Wir haben schon viele Reisen gemacht, aber diese ist Dank Carlos zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis geworden. Carlos spicht sehr gut deutsch und konnte und sehr einfühlsam Costa Rica, die unvergleichliche Natur und die tollen, freundlichen Einwohner nahe bringen. Pura Vida wurde für uns ein Begriff für das Lebensgefühl in Costa Rica. Bitte grüßen sie Carlos von uns und nochmals eine riesiges Dankeschön an ihn im Namen der ganzen 8-köpfigen Gruppe. Wir wünschen ihm nur das Beste für seine Zukunft.
    • Hello, we were on a round trip in Costa Rica from 27.11., which was booked through BigXtra and organised by them. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much. The tour was simply amazing! The support by Carlos was just great. We have done many trips before, but this one was an unforgettable experience thanks to Carlos. Carlos speaks very good German and was able to sensitively introduce us to Costa Rica, its incomparable nature and its great, friendly inhabitants. Pura Vida became for us a term for the attitude towards life in Costa Rica. Please say hello to Carlos from us and once again a huge thank you to him in the name of the whole group of 8. We wish him only the best for his future.
    • Hola, estuvimos desde el 27.11. en un viaje de ida y vuelta en Costa Rica, que fue reservado a través de BigXtra y organizado por ellos. Nos gustaría darles las gracias. ¡El viaje de ida y vuelta fue simplemente impresionante! El apoyo de Carlos fue simplemente genial. Ya hemos hecho muchos viajes, pero este se ha convertido en una experiencia inolvidable gracias a Carlos. Carlos habla muy bien alemán y fue capaz de introducirnos con sensibilidad en Costa Rica, la incomparable naturaleza y los grandes y amables habitantes. Pura Vida se convirtió para nosotros en un término para la actitud hacia la vida en Costa Rica. Por favor, saluda a Carlos de nuestra parte y una vez más un enorme agradecimiento a él en nombre de todo el grupo de los 8. Le deseamos lo mejor para su futuro.

    • Herzlichen Dank und großes Lob an unseren Reiseleiter Mauricio und unseren Busfahrer Adrian! Wir haben uns in den 2 Wochen Costa Rica sehr wohl gefühlt. Sehr bewundernswert waren vor allem das breitgefächerte Wissen von Mauricio und die super Fahrkünste von Adrian. Dank der Adleraugen der Beiden, hatten wir die Möglichkeit eine Vielzahl der Tiere in Costa Rica zu beobachten. Danke für Alles!
    • Many thanks and great praise to our tour guide Mauricio and our bus driver Adrian! We felt very comfortable during the 2 weeks in Costa Rica.

    • ARA Tours kann ich nur weiterempfehlen. Danke nochmal an Nicole für die tolle Ausarbeitung der Tour und die Betreuung. Auch unser Tourguide Peter Käser war einfach unglaublich (wandelndes Lexikon) auf alle Fragen rund um Flora und Fauna sowie über die Geschichte von CR hatte er immer eine Antwort. Unser Fahrer Julio hat meinen Vater auf Händen getragen wofür ich ihm sehr dankbar bin Auch für Rollifahrer ist CR jederzeit eine Reise wert ( natürlich mit ARA Tours ) Tausend Dank an das ganze Team
    • I can only recommend ARA Tours. Thanks again to Nicole for the great planning of the tour and the support. Our tour guide Peter Käser was simply incredible (a walking encyclopaedia) and always had an answer to all my questions about the flora and fauna and the history of CR. Our driver Julio carried my father on his hands, for which I am very grateful. CR is also worth a trip for wheelchair users at any time (with ARA Tours, of course).
    • Sólo puedo recomendar ARA Tours. Gracias de nuevo a Nicole por la gran preparación de la gira y el apoyo. También nuestro guía turístico Peter Käser era simplemente increíble (enciclopedia andante) en todas las preguntas sobre la flora y la fauna, así como sobre la historia de CR siempre tenía una respuesta. Nuestro conductor Julio ha llevado a mi padre de la mano por lo que le estoy muy agradecido También para los usuarios de sillas de ruedas CR siempre vale la pena un viaje (por supuesto con ARA Tours) Mil gracias a todo el equipo

Euch also nochmals vielen Dank und ich habe euch auch schon an Freunde weiterempfohlen:-)!
