Everything about Costa Rica is hugely impressive, lush jungles teeming with wildlife, towering volcanoes, azure oceans with a huge variety of amazing marine life, and long relaxing beaches, so why not enjoy the most impressive sights from the most impressive perspective - from the air. The Papagayo helicopter tour begins at our base in Guardia, near the airport. From there we speed our way to Playa Naranja and the sweeping bays of the Santa Rosa National Park. Next, it’s a chance to witness one of the holy grails of surfing Witches Rock surf break - a huge peak of rock jutting from the sea and deposited after an eruption of the volcano Rincon de la Vieja.
Flying over the estuary and coastline there is the chance to spot crocodiles, turtles, dolphins, whales, and even whale sharks. From the air, we will also pass the 1,000-year-old fish traps, made by hand, and a sign of the foresight and knowledge of our ancestors. We will then skirt the outside of the Papagayo Peninsula with its many sea caves, inviting isolated beaches, and islands, along with the villas and mansions of the movers and shakers from all walks of life. After a quick fly past Playa Panama, Playa Hermosa, and Playa de Coco we will return to our base at Guardia you can reflect on the spectacular sights you’ve just witnessed.
