Experience Costa Rica's biodiverse hotspots that few tourist see on a 5-day immersive ecology, forest meditation, and biodiversity learning adventure in some of this ecotourism nation's most spectacular national parks.
We will be based in the peaceful town of Uvita on the edge of the spectacular Marino Ballena National Park, which is named after the Humpback Whales that migrate through here from December to April. The beaches are spectacular to wander barefoot at low tide and the sunsets are legendary.
On the second day, we'll climb Mount Chirripó. the highest mountain in Costa Rica with an elevation of 3,821 meters (12,532 feet). The mountain was named "Chirripo," meaning "land of eternal waters", by native Americans because there are many lakes and streams around the mountain.

The park’s roughly 680 hectares are crossed with hiking trails, which meander from the coast up into the mountains.
