Costa Rica Coast to Coast Challenge

The next SAFE@LAST overseas challenge after our success at Kilimanjaro and in the Sahara will be to the Costa Rican jungle.

Costa Rica has a huge variety of landscapes, climates and environments and it is home to 5% of the planet’s biodiversity - from palm tree-lined tropical beaches to smoking volcanoes, cloudforest, rainforest and mangrove swamps – it all awaits us in Costa Rica!

Our coast to coast challenge is an adventurous journey on foot and by raft from the Pacific to the Caribbean Coast! Our route takes us from traditional farming communities through coffee plantations and oak forests, deep into cloudforest and dense tropical rainforest, serenaded by howler monkeys and exotic bird calls. We take in the country’s highest active volcano before our challenge ends with an unforgettable journey by raft and boat to a beautiful tropical beach.

It costs £399 to sign up and there is a sponsorship target of £4,000 to take part.
