Costa Rica & Nicaragua

Costa Rica & Nicaragua

Welcome to the jungle! Get ready for colourful wildlife, exploding volcanoes, pristine cloud forest, gorgeous waterfalls and the chance to immerse yourself in a truly local community. 

This expedition is not only two destinations in one, but our longer duration at 21 days, giving you the chance to really explore these amazing countries. Get ready for an action packed adventure of a lifetime! 

Fly into the capital of Nicaragua and experience the thrill of summiting a volcano that hides a crater lagoon – you'll be able to see as far as Honduras and El Salvador. 

Experience a rural school and gain an understanding into Nicaraguan culture in your Community Engagement phase. Becoming a part of this community will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your expedition.

Why not try zip lining, chocolate tasting, or visit monkey inhabited islands in the colonial city of Grenada before you cross the border into Costa Rica and tackle some white water rafting on the Reventazón River?

You'll be involved in a reforestation project before tackling your main trek – the stunning Osa Peninsula – home to 3.5% of the entire planet's biodiversity! You'll trek with local guides who will be able to give you a greater understanding of this vibrant environment.
