Kusingo Tropical Rain Forest Hiking
If you are experienced our Ecological Canopy Tour by day or night, you can reward yourself on a Rain Forest Hiking Tour. Our ecologically and educationally focused hiking experience is geared towards a mix of adventure, education, nature and ecology. Excellent for individuals, families, children, or even large groups, people of all ages will enjoy this adventure because of its variety, options and bio-diversity.
Hike through partly shaded paths carved directly out of the primary Costa Rican tropical jungle as you explore with your bilingual guides and naturalists. Explore the exotic plant and wildlife of the mountainous jungle so close to Manuel Antonio National Park, yet along the mono titi (the endangered squirrel monkey) biological corridor it is a more private, personalized, and relaxing experience. Peacefully enjoy a cold one on the ground as you watch your fellow guests zip line by line to each canopy platform – for yes, our Ecological Canopy Tour is zipping above your head as you enjoy a more peaceful adventure on the ground. If you so desire, take a leisurely stroll or hike through our secluded, protected habitat, which is an excellent location for you to discover the bio-diversity and delicate balance between preservation and eco-tourism, yet leave with new knowledge of how you can extend the experience to others when you return home.
Let Don Gilberto and his family show you the real Costa Rica – on horseback! Once they pick you up the adventure in history and nature begins, starting with the Quepos Indians and leads you through the changes of Manuel Antonio today, which includes Iguana Tours. Enjoy learning about Costa Rica’s exotic plants and rare wildlife as you ride through the tropical jungle and private ecological reserve at Tocori, just minutes away from Manuel Antonio.
After a relaxing hour-long ride on horseback through the tropical rain forest – with the pace determined by your comfort level and riding ability – leave your horses on the trail as Don Gilberto or his daughter Dyala guide you through the exotic plant and animal life on a nature walk. They will let you taste, smell, touch and observe firsthand the real Costa Rican jungle. After indulging your mind and spirit with expert knowledge, take a refreshing dip in pristine natural mountain waters while being splashed on by two stunning waterfalls at Tocori. And don’t forget to enjoy an unforgettable taste of local fresh fruits and a homemade special tropical drink made exclusively by Doña Eli, Don Gilberto´s wife, all while you relax and cool off next to the waterfalls..
