Pick up a paddle and prepare for a thrilling stopover in San Jose that takes you from the city streets to the wild reaches of Cahuita National Park. Encounter the artisans and outdoor markets of Costa Rica's lively capital, then set out on a rafting expedition down one of the world's best rapids, passing through the grassy gorges and rainforests of the Pacuare River. Recharge at a tropical retreat before swapping jungles for coastline, exploring the coral reefs and idyllic nature reserves near Puerto Viejo. This Costa Rican adventure packs so much punch the word 'stopover' will never be the same again.
