Frog's Heaven

Tour description:

Destination: Sarapiqui.

Sarapiqui’s valley is one of the most remarkable rainforests in the world. The natural world that surrounds this part of Costa Rica is a true rainforest experience. Thousands of life forms exist in any given ecosystem ranging from a patch of overgrown grass to deep and mature primary forest. A place on its own worth spending a lifetime exploring.
