Arenal Volcano

Begin your luxury holiday in Costa Rica at the iconic Arenal Volcano, perfectly symmetrical in shape, this dramatic volcano rises out of the San Carlos Plains. Boarding your heli from San José, you will soar across dense rainforest that is interspersed by pretty, meandering rivers, before flying over the immense Arenal Volcano. Landing alongside, your private guide will take you on an adventure that has you rappelling down waterfalls, hiking through lava fields and soaring across rainforest canopies. To end your day, take a relaxing soak in natural hot springs at the base of the majestic volcano.

Corcovado National Park

Leave the outside world behind as you board a private boat which will transport you through atmospheric mangroves. At the other side you will meet your expert guide, a local farmer who will lead you on a hike into the wilderness of Corcovado National Park. Here, 42,000 hectares of Pacific Lowland Rainforest spills onto deserted, pristine beaches where turquoise water laps the shoreline.

Tribally-Controlled Areas

Through Pelorus’ extensive network of contacts in Costa Rica, you will be granted exclusive rights to move through the tribally-controlled areas of this region. Marvel at the beauty of this spectacular landscape, home to 800 endemic tree species before arriving at a remote village. Slip into local life with a traditional welcome and an intimate encounter with the local people for a humbling insight into their lives.

Local Communities

As the days pass, journey deeper into one of the world’s most biodiverse regions of Costa Rica and discover scarlet macaws, tapirs, jaguars and squirrel monkeys, alongside the people that know them best. Each night will be spent with local communities that inhabit the forest and have come to understand its rhythm over generations.

Golfo Dulce

Next you will take to the waters of the Golfo Dulce to explore the coastline on paddle boards and kayaks, searching for spinner dolphins and humpback whales. Discovering the vibrant marine world as you snorkel below the surface, where a whole host of tropical fish reside within vibrant and colourful coral reefs.

Submersible Adventure

For the ultimate luxury experience in Costa Rica, Pelorus will take you on a once in a lifetime submersible adventure, taking you up to 450 feet below the surface. Watch as the water rises outside, with a 360-degree views through the orb of the cockpit as you sink into the depth of the ocean. Here you will discover an array of pelagic life including hammerhead sharks, manta rays, tuna and schools of snapper. Your submersible dives will contribute vital information and data needed to preserve and protect Costa Rica’s oceans.

Conservation Work

For a chance to get more involved in crucial conservation work, join expert marine biologists in their conservation efforts to track the movements of hammerhead sharks. Out on the water, you will catch your own hammerhead, lifting them out of the water to fit a tagging device, before returning them to continue their journey, which you will then receive updates for throughout the next year.
