White-water rafting in Costa Rica

If you’re dreaming of a white-knuckle Christmas, try the 16-day Natural Magic tour in Costa Rica. Suitable for families with children from eight years, as well as getting the chance to enjoy some white-water rafting, it’s the ultimate for adventurers who want to explore the rainforest at canopy level and meet iguanas and monkeys at Manuel Antonio National Park. You will also ride on the man-made canals and see hundreds of species of animals, from toucans to kingfishers. A visit to the Arenal Volcano and the surrounding thermal pools and Tortuguero National Park to see the turtles is included, too. Prices for the December 18 departure with Adventure Company start from £2,199 per adult and £1,949 per child, including flights, B&B accommodation in small hotels or lodges, transport, and some meals, plus an experienced local guide.
