Climb aboard the Rainforest Adventure Safari 4×4 with your friends and family, grab an icy-cold beer from the cooler, and then just kick back and watch the amazingly exotic Costa Rican rainforest unfold before your eyes.
The true treasures of Costa Rica are the small mountain pueblos and the people who inhabit them.? On your Costa Rica Booze Cruise, you will visit authentic saloons and taverns, meet the local folks, and share a drink or two with your newfound friends in your new favorite watering holes.
On your inebriated journey…you will pass through several hidden local spots for drinks, lunch and fun…all served by some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
What You Can Expect
You will begin your tour leaving the Jaco or Los Suenos area and traveling to Quebrada Armarilla.? Winding through the beautiful countryside you will continue to Mata de Platano – a tiny town right on the banks of a scenic river.? After a pit stop at the local riverside bar, and a quick dip in the warm waters of Rio Turrubares, we are back on the trail and headed further up into the sticks.
You will pass through pueblos Angostura, Pavones, Montelimar and San Gabriel with their rugged country simplicity and stoic old churches.
Just a beer around the corner and we arrive in Las Delicias – a quiet town where life is stress-free, simple values rule and no one is in a hurry to go anywhere.? Delicias is also home to one of our favorite old barkeeps ? the famous Pocho!? Just walking into his old western-style saloon will give you a welcoming feeling of a simpler, more peaceful way of life.
If you?re lucky enough to catch Pocho, you?ll want your camera when he brings out his best friend Rolly (a gorgeous blue macaw).? You?ll also want your barstool when he pulls the giant bullhorn off the wall and starts using it to fill shot glasses with his homemade coconut-flavored moonshine.
Be sure to fill your belly with Pocho?s delicious fresh river shrimp and ceviche before we press on – Not to be missed!
Departing Las Delicias we will drive through the sprawling farmlands of the Costa Rica backcountry.? Around every turn are staggering views of streams, mountains, and vibrant green pastures.
Our next stop is in the town of Bijagual, the home of the only bullfighting arena around, a beautiful town soccer field, and another authentic bar – the only one in town!? The super-friendly staff there will be happy to meet you, and of course, offer to make you a delicious cocktail.
Another scenic drive and you will arrive at your final stop before beginning the descent down the mountain.? This last stop is a quaint mountaintop gem ? Rancho Shadday.
Great people, great food, and cold drinks too!? You will want to savor the unbelievable views of the Nicoya Peninsula, the Pacific Ocean, and breathtaking mountain views.? The truly home cooked food here is prepared on a wood burning stove, and most foods are grown on the family?s farm below ? Costa Rica organic!
Grab your last drink, and we will begin your trip winding 2000 feet down the mountain, through the rainforest, past a waterfall and back to Adventure Tours headquarters.
Our Costa Rica Jungle Booze Cruise is an incredibly unique experience you and yours will not soon forget.
