Traveler who pre-register will have priority access to full registration, which requires an additional $200 ($300 total registration) when the tour is finalized.

Costa Rica is an explosion of life! With seashore to mountaintop topography, a tropical climate, and a land bridge geography between the Americas, it boasts a phenomenal 12 ecological zones, 30 types of rain forests, and more species of flora and fauna per square kilometer than any country on earth!

Most American sun worshippers flock to beach resorts on Costa Rica’s West Coast. The WAI Way is to rub shoulders with cultural and natural authenticity in the Central Highlands and East Coast national parks at Tortuguero and Cahuita.


  • Central Highlands coffee & culture – several days in the cultural and historic heartland of Costa Rica with an optional pre-tour coffee plantation tour to learn about the little bean that raised Costa Rica out of 19th century poverty!
  • Arenal – a picturesque, perfectly conical volcano whose rainforest-covered slopes provide a haven for an astonishing number of species
  • Tortuguero – two days to explore this jungle hideaway for iguanas, monkeys, sloths, and toucans. Cruising through rain forest canals at dawn on the lookout for critters is a once in a lifetime experience!
  • Cahuita National Park – boasting a memorable “dry jungle” trail along the Caribbean in the company of monkeys and other Costa Rican critters
