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.

The Baja Sur Mexico adventure was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I would strongly recommend for anyone. The crew and guides are wonderful at what they do. They are very knowledgeable and yet have the best personalities. The chefs made delicious meals 3 times a day and the restaurants we went to were clean and great too. The entire trip we felt safe and secure. I read every review about the trip ahead of time and they are all accurate. That is why Green Edventures is a 5 star!
It was incredible! Baja is beautiful, and camping on the beach was the most amazing thing ever. The interactions with the whales, the whale sharks, the sea lions.... everything was just so cool. Green Edventures (this is my second trip) does a great job of planning and coordinating logistics, providing necessary info, and basically, they do everything to make their trips perfect. The food is always great and lots of it, the local staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and of course, Tara the owner is fantastic. Additionally, I find that these trips attract a really interesting group of smart, self-sufficient women who are a pleasure to get to know. Both trips I have gone not knowing anyone else, and at the end, you have a whole new set of friends. If you want to go places, and don't have a travel buddy, Tara's trips would be perfect for you.
thank you so much for this review, Deborah. I am very grateful. It is always a pleasure to travel with you.(tara)

I had a great time on this trip! It was exciting to have 31 dogs out on the trails! The scenery in the Wisconsin Northwoods is peaceful, calming, and beautiful. Food and accommodations were great. The cabins are very cute and well appointed - they made for a relaxing end to our busy, exciting, fun-filled days.
This trip to Yellowstone to see the winter wolves was amazing! The park in the 'dead of winter' is anything but! The outfitters were knowledgeable on all aspects - the history of the park, animal behavior, and knew the best places to be - when and where - to increase our chances of viewing the wildlife. We saw (and heard!) wolves, bison, elk, coyote, moose, whitetail deer, mule deer, pine martens, eagles, ravens, trumpeter swans, and many other birds. We had the Old Faithful geyser basin to ourselves! Accommodations and food were great. Do yourself a favor - and see Yellowstone in winter!
It was the perfect small, social-distance conscious trip! A much-needed long weekend in the woods. The food and accommodations were great. The snowshoe guide was knowledgeable and planned the perfect trails. Dogsledding was more fun than I imagined!

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?
