Overview
More
We offer a variety of tours in the southern sector of the Costa Ballena along the south pacific corner of Costa Rica, one of the largest and most virgin frontiers that encompasses 10% of Costa Ricas entire land mass. Specialize in exploration of the Terraba River Basin and it's dense mangrove surroundings. We also cross through an isthmus of land between the Terraba River and Pacific Ocean which is a working farm, and this an excellent agro tourism part of the venture and learn how a couple costarican farmers can sustain themselves with what they grow and catch from the sea!
