Jammin Costa Rica

Puerto Viejo - Cahuita - Gandoca Manzanillo
6 days / 5 nights from $599

Harness the energy and feel the vibes of Costa Rica's Caribbean coast on your journey to this captivating and often overlooked paradise of pristine beaches, tropical rainforest, and vibrant culture. From Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo, these small laid back beach towns offer up a variety of activities reminiscent of 'island life on the mainland' from snorkeling and surfing to sipping tropical drinks on unspoiled beaches.

Backed by lush tropical rainforest, this coastal destination is home to variety of wildlife including sloths, monkeys, turtles, toucans, and scarlet macaws. One of the last remaining places where Costa Rica's indigenous people, the Bribri, are found, the region is unique blend of afro-caribbean, spanish, and indigenous culture infused with a like-minded spirit of oneness with the surrounding landscape. Welcome to 'el Caribe'.
