About this trip

 

Ladies! Fly south and join us in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula for an all women’s adventure. Experience the luxury of seclusion with fun outdoor adventures like nature hiking, kayaking, and a zip-lining to help you explore the wild lowland rainforest.

The Costa Rica womens adventure provides women with access to a part of Costa Rica that is a bit more complicated for the average tourist to get to. The Osa Peninsula is on Costa Rica south west coast. It is one of the most bio-rich places on EARTH, and one of the few places in the world where all three species of monkeys, big cats, and tapirs still roam…wild! Here lush jungle meets black sand beaches, scarlet Macaws streak across blue skies, Howler Monkeys are your morning alarm clock, and your natural rhythms are restored by sunrises and sunsets. The goal of the Costa Rica womens adventure is to help you see as much wildlife as possible, teach you outdoor skills to help you explore, and to introduce you to the ecology of the rainforest though first-hand observation and naturalist-led activities.


The remote accommodations for the Costa Rica womens adventure give us access to spectacular locations to explore by foot, paddle, and snorkel to see and learn about animals and plants of the Osa Peninsula. Your guide Pepé is an amazing storyteller and will use his vast knowledge and gift of teaching to share with you the complex relationships of plants and animals in the rainforest. He is an expert at spotting animals and will give participants unforgettable guided nature walks. You will feel like you are discovering the rainforest like a true explorer.

Just returned from the Northwoods Women's edventure trip and it was spectacular! The scenery was magnificent, the accommodations cozy and the daily activities were varied, informative and exhilarating! I cannot say enough about the two naturalists at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, Licia and Annie, who took care of all the myriad details, including last minute schedule changes to accommodate weather updates. Also, the speakers and recreation guides were passionate and truly engaged the group in the history and ecology of the area. I even got to experience the thrill of riding an E-bike! I highly recommend this marvelous, colorful trip, especially if you live in an area where autumn can be subtle.
This trip had just the right amount and variety of activity. Loads of fun in a beautiful place! Who knew there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
I've been on many scuba diving trips, educational/cultural adventures and international travels. This was the best-organized and executed by FAR. All accommodations were very clean and welcoming. Our guides were knowledgeable and responsive to our individual interests in the natural world. I signed up for trip ONE WEEK ahead and thought--oh, I know what to pack! But, I didn't for THIS trip. Tara's packing list SAVED me. Her careful instructions let me bring all the RIGHT items. Food and activities were excellent. We were taken care of SO very well. Tara kept everything running right on schedule, which is sometimes challenging if cultures run on island time! I have wanted to see Baja and the Sea of Cortez for many years and finally got my wish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
thank you Cynthia for this rave review. It means to me that you took the time to write for everyone to see. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you on our adventure. Hope to see you again! -- tara

Most amazing trip I've ever been on and I've traveled to many places! I wanted an adventure and I got it. Plenty of physical activities in the 10-days including hiking, glacier trekking, swimming, horseback riding, and kayaking. All the ladies in our group - along with our two guides - were so much fun! Would totally book another trip with Green Edventures! - Nikki
I can't say enough positive things about this trip! The guide and trip leader were knowledgeable, entertaining, professional, and SO fun to travel with! The planned activities kept us busy and gave us an excellent feel for what Iceland had to offer. I definitely want to go back. The pre-trip information prepared me well for all possibilities of weather and challenge, and I realized that before this trip, I had been missing the camaraderie of traveling with an all-women group. I would definitely do another trip with Green Edventures! Cheryl

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
