This breathtaking canopy tour, one of the most beautiful in the country, is situated in a cloud forest at the foot of the Barva Volcano, in the heart of the Braulio Carrillo National Park Forest.
You will climb a staircase to a platform located at the top of an ancient oak tree and once above the forest, zip line across from platform to platform via interconnecting cables. The birds-eye-view of the cloud forest, as you can imagine, is nothing short of awe-inspiring. This half-day guided tour is available on Tuesdays. The tour departs Pura Vida at 08:45 and returns at 13:30 in time for lunch. Travel time is approximately 30 to 45 minutes. The cost of this tour is 60 USD.
Learn a lot about the brew that kick-starts most of your mornings, on a stroll through the coffee fields that surround Pura Vida. Your guide on this roughly 90-minute walk will tell you the life story of coffee from the time it’s planted to the time it is served in your mug along with some general history of Costa Rica and how coffee relates to it. This half-day tour is available on Thursdays only. This tour is free.
This tour is a perfect combination of an eco-exploring hike and natural hot springs experience. The eco-hike begins in sweeping pasture land continues through a secondary growth forest and ends in the property’s private reserve of awe-inspiring mostly primary growth forest. After a delicious lunch, you’ll be whisked off to a hot springs site in the heart of the rainforest, where you can relax and immerse yourself in seven warm, healing volcanic hot springs pools.
The pools vary in temperature, depth, and mineral content, but the mineral-rich waters with therapeutic copper-salt have profound healing properties and will help restore and improve your natural energy levels.

The active Poas Volcano features on the “must see” lists of tourists and locals alike and has been described as Costa Rica’s coolest volcano experience. At the bottom of one of its two enormous prehistoric-looking main craters is a 900 feet deep lagoon spewing boiling, sulfurous gasses. The other, named Botos Lagoon, contains cold rain water, connecting to the Rio Angel, and to the larger Rio Sarapiqui.
On this adventure in the Poas Volcano National Park, you will witness volcanic activity close and firsthand and experience four distinctly different natural habitats. Such variety in such a relatively small area of land is just another example of Costa Rica’s incredible biodiversity. You are welcome to explore the many short trails that wind around the craters and into the surrounding forest.
This half-day guided tour is available on Fridays. The tour departs Pura Vida at 08:45 and returns at 13:30 in time for lunch. Travel time is approximately 45 minutes. The cost of this tour is 50 USD.

The bridges offer a perfect birds-eye-view of the canopy’s flora and fauna while leaving the creatures of the forest virtually undisturbed.
Enjoy lunch and a break for souvenir shopping after your sky walk, then step into a boat for a two-hour boat ride along the Guacalillo river canals, a 20-minute bus ride from Villa Lapas. As you glide through the water, you’ll spot howler monkeys, bright scarlet macaws, and other species of tropical birds among the lush Pacific Coast mangroves.
