We also have several one day tours in different categories that might call your attention:
Hiking deep in the forest, Canopy / Zip Line from giant trees, Horseback Riding through uknown paths, Natural History, Volcano Watch (at Arenal and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanoes) and many other options.

Las Baulas National Park:
This small reserve was created to protect the turtle nesting beach of Playa Grande. Every year, thousands of leatherback sea turtles, the largest living turtle, crawl onto at night and bury their eggs in its warm sand. There is also an extensive mangrove swamp, which is an excellent area to see birds.

Rincon de la Vieja National Park:
It is probably the largest area where the Guaria Morada, the orchid which is Costa Rica's national flower, can still be found in the wild.

Palo Verde National Park:
This National Park is made up of a mosaic of diverse flood-plain habitats. Rivers and rows of calcareous hills surround it. Palo Verde's natural hydrologic system provides the most adequate conditions for the area to harbor the most important concentration of aquatic birds and waders in the country and in the whole of Central America.

Volcan Irazu National Park:
This active volcano, with a long history of dramatic eruptions and eruptive cycles, is easily reached from the city of San José.

Isla del Coco National Park:
Isla del Coco was declared Patrimony Of Mankind. Its importance transcends the national boundaries to become an international legacy. Its greatest pride are the marine resources. 235 species of plants have been identified in the island, 70 of which are endemic; 57 crustaceans, 118 marine mollusks, 200 fish, 351 insects and 18 coral species.

Tortuguero National Park:
The green turtle's most important spawning area in the whole west Caribbean. Among the vegetation, the "yolillo" palm and the "kativo" tree are the most common and can often be seen by the of both the natural and the artificial canals.

Carara Biological Reserve:
Carara displays a high diversity of plants, predominantly evergreens. It has several ecosystems, such as swamps and a lagoon among others.

Cabo Blanco Biological Reserve:
It provides a refuge for marine birds and it offers one of the most beautiful scenery in the Pacific Coast.

Monteverde Biological Reserve:
The Monteverde area in Costa Rica is world famous for its cloud forest. There are now two reserves, the original Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the Santa Elena Rain Forest. In these forests you can enjoy the cloud forest climate and hike the trails amongst the varieties of plants and magnificent epiphytic laden trees, there have been over 450 bird species seen in the Monteverde area. The native birds are joined at certain time or the year by those that migrate through from North America. The splendid quetzals with their long tails feed at various locations in the area and one can at times hear the ?bong? of the bell birds. These areas sit aside the continental divide at an altitude a bit above 5000 feet. They protect and provide habitat for hundreds of species of plants and animals.

Hitoy Cerere Biological Reserve:
The area is crisscrossed by an large number of very pebbly rivers decorated with rapids and cascades, some of which are tens of meters high.

Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wild Life Refuge:
It protects the wildlife, particularly those species threatened with extinction or with very reduced populations. It protects the only mangrove oyster bank in the coastal reef.

Ostional National Wild Life Refuge:
It protects the area's wildlife, which includes the Lora and the Baula turtles, as well a large variety or marine birds.

This is one of Costa Rica's wilder parks, but relatively accessible by foot. Much of the rugged terrain has been protected from development and exploitation by its inaccessibility. Besides the challenge of climbing Costa Rica's highest peak (Cerro Chirripó) there are miles of trails that wind through more ecological zones than you will find in most entire countries.
