Taste of Costa Rica Adventure

Doka Coffee, Poás Volcano, Pacuare Rafting & Ecolodge

Taste of Costa Rica Adventure

Experience the splendor and beauty of Costa Rica, while actively participating in our rainforest reforestation and sustainability projects. On this 5-day trip, you’ll explore an active volcano, tour a coffee plantation, raft one of Costa Rica’s most gorgeous rivers, and relax at our award-winning ecolodge on its 2,400-acre private rainforest reserve. Mixed in with all the excitement, you’ll have multiple opportunities to make a personal contribution to carbon neutrality, learn about sustainability and reforestation in Costa Rica, and support our efforts to keep Costa Rica wild and beautiful.

 

On this adventure and ecotourism trip, you’ll learn and live our sustainable development practices without sacrificing fun, relaxation and the wonders of Costa Rica. Lending a hand in reforesting the Earth is a high-impact way for you to contribute to helping make this world a cleaner place for generations to come. If every visitor to Costa Rica planted one tree, we’d be able to reforest entire tracts of rainforest continuously. We invite you to take part in our conservation efforts to preserve Costa Rica so future generations can enjoy our country too.
