San José is the capital city of the Central American Republic of fabulous Costa Rica and is the focus for the fast-growing, important commercial and environmental industry that is EcoTourism – a new concept enabling visitors to go to areas of natural beauty and history while respecting the integrity of the ecosystem, a difficult balancing act for the authorities who aim to promote the environmental flora and fauna but give the local population alternative ways of benefitting financially. So much for the serious stuff! – you’re an EcoTourist and your desire is to immerse yourself in the flora and fauna of San José during your Costa Rican vacation.
You’ll have endless activities to choose from: horseback riding, hiking, mountain paths, bird watching, sailing, white water rafting or back into the city for amazing shopping to celebrate your honeymoon! You can buy an affordable package tour that covers all transport, meals, activities and hotels. Here’s a typical EcoTourism all-inclusive caravan tour itinerary:
…hotel in San José…your own tour director…the outstanding natural beauty of the region at Poas volcano…cloud forest…coffee plantations…the jungle canopy…Cano Negro wildlife refuge…hanging bridges…bird watching…Manuel Antonio National Park…wow! A ten-day escape package with daily departures from the city for a typical per person cost of $995!
EcoTourism in San José opens doors on unbelievable wildlife adventures when you can see famous sea turtles nesting, crocodiles and otters, monkeys and herons – an experience not to be found anywhere else in the world. Upland rivers offer frothy white water routes for kayaking and rafting while downstream the waterfalls and flow become languid with lush verdant walls of vegetation.
On the seasonal Cano Negro plain you’ll observe rare mangrove swallows and iguanas, ospreys and bats, armadillos and funny rabbits! It’s fauna gone mad that this protected environment provides you, the modern EcoTourist. Your small boat trip weaves a course through different microclimates, in and out of the ceiba trees that attract swarms of bees and marvel at wild orchids…colourful butterflies flutter over sloths and anteaters.
Inspiring flora alongside breathtaking subtropical fauna make Costa Rica Ecotourism the natural choice!
