Day 1

Arrival in Boca Tapada

Expect a warm welcome upon arrival to your jungle eco-lodge. There’ll be a friendly face as well as a cold drink waiting for you before you’re shown to your bungalow. This afternoon you’re free to relax in a hammock, enjoy a cold beer in the restaurant or take a stroll along one of the trails.

Day 2

Exploring Boca Tapada

You’ll usually wake up pretty early as the forest comes alive as the sun rises, and you’ll have breakfast with the sounds of wildlife all around you. During the day you’ll be heading out on a walk with one of the lodge’s guides. They’ll spot the wildlife you’d likely miss and will be happy to answer any questions you might have about Costa Rica’s abundance of animals and insects! Your afternoon is free to relax – you can cool off in the pool or try your hand at canoeing.

Later this evening you’ll head out on a guided night walk in the lodge grounds to see which nocturnal animals and insects await you. Your experienced guide will be able to find the hiding places of the snakes, brightly coloured frogs and insects which make the jungle come alive at night! After a day of adventure, you’ll return to your lodge for a tasty dinner.


Day 3


This morning it’s time to leave this little piece of paradise behind and continue your journey through this lush, green country. From here you can head to see the mighty Arenal volcano in La Fortuna or meet the Juanilama community for a real taste of local life in Costa Rica.

If you would like a bit more time to enjoy the rural surroundings at Boca Tapada we can organise a 3-night stay instead. You’ll take part in the two guided walks – one in the morning and one at night but as you will have more time to explore, we’ll also arrange for you to take a boat trip on the Rio San Carlos where crocodiles can often be spotted on the river banks. You’ll have the opportunity to visit a local farm where you can try traditional Costa Rican coffee, plantain, yuka and cheese – yum!

Prices from: £ 398 - per person
