Activities

Just some of the things you can do

Since every trip is tailored to you, yours could include any or all of the following. Here's some of the things Liana specializes in:

 

Guided Hikes

Whether it's sitting at the foot of a remote waterfall or standing atop the Continental Divide, straddling the very spine of the continent, the best destinations in Costa Rica are only a walk away.

Naturalist Tours

Focusing more on fauna than destination, these short, slow, wildlife walks are a popular attraction in Costa Rica. Track large animals through the jungle, follow monkeys through the trees, or stake out food patches for colorful birds. There is no shortage of animals in the Tropics.

Night Walks

My personal favorite, night walks are the only way to fully experience the biodiversity the jungle has to offer. See frogs, bats, large insects, and other nocturnal wildlife up-close as the jungle truly comes alive after sundown.

Birdwatching

Whether your a life-lister or just a beginner, Costa Rica is a famous destination for for birdwatching. Boasting over 750 species--some of which are endemic to the region--you can be sure to count parrots, hummingbirds, and many, many more among your days. Depending on the season, you may even see rarities as the Jabiru, the Three-Wattled Bellbird, or the nearly legendary Resplendant Quetzal.

Kayaking

Hop in for a quiet morning paddle through the forest, where the unique perspective allows for close encounters with waterfowl, sloths, monkeys, or even large sleeping reptiles (Life jackets included).

Coffee Farm Tour

Costa Rica is famous for coffee, which plays an important role in the local culture, economy, and ecosystem. Many small family farms offer tours where they explain the whole process, from plant to cup. And there is usually a sample at the end, of course.

Botanical Tour

Every plant has a story to tell. Whether in a botanical garden, farm, or pristine forest, I can lead a walk focusing on the natural history of native flora. Learn about the life cycle of a strangler fig, see gorgeous blooming flowers, and maybe even sample wild growing fruit.
