South America is home to an impressive array of animals living in nearly every type of environment from cactus-filled deserts to glaciated mountain peaks. Here are five of our favorites!
It seems word has officially gotten out about this adventurer's playground, and globe-trotters from near and far want to experience firsthand why it's such a unique and sought after tropical destination. From hiking incredible landscapes to sipping a cup of locally grown coffee, it's easy to see why Costa Rica is one of the most popular holiday destinations Backroads offers.
Over the holidays, I lead Backroads family trips in Costa Rica. Since schools are on break during this time, it makes for a great chance to take a family vacation. And a trip together is the perfect occasion to strengthen family bonds, make memories that last a lifetime and even create new traditions.
We've been bringing guests on Multisport Adventures in Costa Rica for 20 years. Our Regional Expert has lived here for more than half that time, raising her own family near Manuel Antonio National Park. We've found the best hiking and biking routes, and built relationships with the most accomplished local guides, all so we can take you off the beaten path to discover the real Costa Rica. And we offer more active trips over peak holiday periods than any other company.
