The Rainforest Adventures park is an expansive 475-hectare (1,200-acre) private ecology tours reserve in the Atlantic side of Costa Rica, located just 50 miles from the capital city of San Jóse. It shares a 10 kilometer border with Braulio Carrillo National Park, and constitutes a buffer zone between the park and local farmland.
It’s the ultimate combination of Costa Rica rain forest tours, bird watching and zip line tours.
The Costa Rica attractions here are highlighted by our Aerial Tram, a high-flying Costa Rica canopy tour through the treetops, our thrilling zip lines, pristine flora and fauna, and the Butterfly & Frog Garden.
The eco tours of Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica give travelers a special opportunity to learn, appreciate and bond with the beauty of the rainforest, plus bring home a better appreciation of rainforest conservation.
