Costa Rica Multisport
Weaving together breathtaking scenery, colorful culture and astonishing wildlife encounters, our multisport adventures wrap you in the essence of Costa Rica. And everywhere, you'll experience what our friendly Tico hosts call pura vida—literally, pure life—which for us means an ideal blend of discovery and relaxation in this nature lover's nirvana. Trek through luxuriant jungle, feeling the rush of excitement as a howler monkey's roar reverberates through the canopy. Relish the sun's warmth as you sip a batido (fruit milkshake) on a white-sand beach. And enjoy an array of exhilarating activity options, from horseback riding to zip-lining. The promise of adventure looms large in Costa Rica. Dive in and savor it all with Backroads!
