Secrets of Costa Rica


Top 7 things to do in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a tropical country located between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, where exuberant vegetation and thousands of animal species coexist. 


There are many amazing Costa Rica tours, but if we had to choose these would be the top 7 tours you must do:


1. Feel the adrenaline OF a COSTA RICA rafting tour: your heart is guaranteed to stop beating!


Rafting is definitely an experience you must have during your trip to Costa Rica. It’s one of the most exciting things to do: you’ll sail a river on an inflatable raft while you marvel at the lush vegetation that surrounds you. You'll pass by dense forests, beautiful waterfalls and you'll see animals that you´ve never seen before, while crossing the rapids of one of the most spectacular rivers of the world.




We recommend white water rafting at the Pacuare River, named among the 10 best rivers for rafting in the world according to National Geographic or at the area of the Arenal Volcano, a destination that will undoubtedly fullfill your adrenaline craving.

  1. Take a surfing lesson: and roll inside the waves



Costa Rica is known as a surfing paradise. In 2016 and for the second time, it’ll host the World Surfing Championship. What better place to learn to surf than the place where the pros did?


The variety of Costa Rica beaches, both at the Caribbean and Pacific coast, provide surfing options for all categories. We recommend you take a surfing lesson, even if it takes you several waves to finally stand on the board!


3. Flying in the jungle from mountain to mountain…not kidding


If you´ve always wished you could fly: make it happen in Costa Rica! By zip lining mountain to mountain, over the tree tops of a wild jungle: you will not only view the extraordinary vegetation, but you will feel like flying all the way.


CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISHED FOR… you will definitely be panting at the end of the way.


There are many great places for doing canopy in Costa Rica. Wikol recommends Monteverde, Rio Perdido and Arenal because of their beautiful scenery, safety measures, and the best and highest speed cables.

  1. Relax in the COSTA RICA Hot Springs: you will sleep like a baby


There is no better feeling than to immerse yourself in the delicious hot springs after a full day of adrenaline. Natural pools, surrounded by exotic plants and heavenly views ... We recommend the hot springs right by the Arenal Volcano or the ones you´ll find by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.

  1. Immerse yourself in the underwater world


The Costa Rica underwater world is going to astound you with its large number of fish of all sizes and colors, stingrays, turtles, jellyfish, hammerheads, white tails, whales and bull sharks. Many of the islands, reefs, caves and rocks that lie off the coast, provide excellent places for diving and snorkeling.


Caño Island, Cocos Island, Murcielago Island and Cahuita Reef are great coast diving places in Costa Rica.


  1. Canyoning: the best way to get soaked


If you like waterfalls, imagine how exciting it will be to rappel through one! Canyoning is an exciting outdoor experience, in which you will descend canyons and waterfalls with the help of a rope. You’ll climb rocks, hike, swim in crystal clear waters and experience the wildlife of a true rainforest.


You will find the best canyoning at Pacuare and Arenal.


  1. Taste delicious Costa Rican food and gain weight


If you really want to get up close and personal with any country, you must try its food.  I assure you that Costa Rican food is not going to disappoint you!


Don´t forget to try Costa Rica´s variety of tropical fruits, meats, seafood infused with coconut, gallo pinto, chorreadas, tortillas with cheese…you will definitely gain a few pounds but you will go back home with a full heart!
