NEW Nicaragua & Costa Rica Multisport
From Cloud Forest to Volcanoes & the Pacific Coast

Nicaragua or Costa Rica. Which was more awe-inspiring? The steaming volcano or the three waterfalls in the cloud forest? Which was more delicious, the fresh roasted coffee from the plantation or the chocolate you learned how to make at our treehouse resort? Was it the biking or the walks? The monkeys, the iguanas or the sloths? Opinions will vary. But this adventure will give your family plenty of stories and lots to debate.
• It's all amazing—steaming volcanoes, dense jungle, cool cloud forest and one of the world's largest lakes
• Listen for the roar of howler monkeys and keep your eyes on the trees for a glimpse of parrots and sunbathing iguanas
• Beautiful hikes and rides through nature reserves, then idyllic beach time by the Pacific Ocean
• Kids learn how to make chocolate—and sample the goods along the way!
• Perfect the art of relaxation at three atmospheric eco-lodges
