our range of day tours

We offer day tours in various regions of Costa Rica and Panama.

San José and surroundings, in the Caribbean, la Fortuna and Monteverde, on Bocas del Toro in Panama. Please contact us.

Almost all tours start daily - usually for 1 person or more - from Posada Nena or partner hotels.

There is also a selection of tour options that you can undertake alone, i.e. on your own. Be it as a hike, by bus or with your own rental car. Of course, some of the “organized day tours” on offer can also be carried out by rental car, but not all destinations are easy. Simply contact us and we will give you honest advice.

We have something to suit every taste: if you like things to be action-packed, we have a lot on offer. If you prefer to observe animals and nature in peace, there are our safaris, hikes, canoe/kayak tours and tours for ornithologists.

Individual program through Costa Rica

We, the team at Posada Nena and alautentico - our own special tour operator - have been organizing individual trips and holidays in Latin America for almost 30 years.

Our principle is to respect the wishes of the traveler and to create an individual travel itinerary, 100% tailored to the customer's very private wishes. We focus on experiencing foreign cultures up close, a variety of activities and a real exchange of experiences with locals. If you want to spend the most beautiful weeks of the year, your vacation, away from the paths of mass tourism, you have come to the right place.

Our multi-day tours and round trips are to be designed together by customers and us. We make suggestions, work out the routes and give tips on nature-friendly destinations far away from mass tourism - together we then determine a route.

With our many years of experience, we have built a reliable team and a network of contacts throughout Costa Rica (and partly in Panama) so that we can provide immediate and honest help, support and advice in every place and region.

Here are a few ideas of what our trips could look like. These are just tried and tested suggestions, together we will put together the perfectly tailored trip: Costa Rica tour ideas and travel modules

10 Days Caribbean Adventure

We have put together the perfect combination for a 10-day trip here, which we can offer so affordably because it includes many self-services. The trip starts after picking up at the airport at our "Posada Nena Santa Ana," then continues to Tortuguero National Park and on to the Caribbean coast in Puerto Viejo - pure Caribbean. After an exciting rafting tour on the Pacuare River, the journey concludes at Braulio Carrillo NP.

Caribbean Adventure

Barva Volcano Individual

The destination of the trip is the pristine Barva Volcano in Braulio Carrillo National Park, the largest and, in our opinion, the most exciting national park in Costa Rica. This special tour is a hidden gem for nature enthusiasts in the cloud forest. Barva Volcano has been extinct for a long time.

Trekking Tour to Barva Volcano

Poás Volcano

Until the end of October 2018, the volcano was closed to visitors. Since then, it has been reopened to visitors. Here we offer three tours in one day - the day tour to Poás Volcano, the Doka Coffee Estate, and the La Paz Waterfalls. Poás Volcano, with a crater nearly 1.3 km in diameter, is one of the largest volcanic craters in the world. It is located north of Santa Ana and is surrounded by tropical forests at an elevation of 2,574m.

Day tour to Poás Volcano

Rafting on the Pacuare River

This is one of the most spectacular tours you can take in Costa Rica - the Pacuare River. An exciting Class III-IV rafting trip through pristine nature. A unique experience that also serves as an excellent transfer option. The tour starts or ends in Santa Ana/San José, the Caribbean, or in La Fortuna.

Rafting on the Pacuare River

Snorkeling and Underwater World

In the Caribbean, we offer day trips to the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. There are various options available, such as guided tours with a German biologist providing detailed explanations or hiking with a subsequent kayaking tour through the wildlife-rich coastal landscape.
