Solo Travel Destination-Costa Rica a Top Eco Tour and Adventure: Sample Tour:
Costa Rica is a full pageant of color. Rain forests combine with endless white, sandy beachy. Butterflies and frogs buzz by waiting for you to focus your telephoto lens. Once you get off the beaten path in Costa Rica’s national parks, you will see both endangered and other species from large cats to noisy macaws. There are lots of adventurous, active options from hiking to diving or more leisurely birding and whale watching.
The capital of Costa Rica has much to see and do. San Jose has many museums to prowl through. My personal favorite was the Museo de Oro (Museum of Gold). It has many exhibits that date back to the time before Columbus. Fashionistas will also be glad to see its gift shop. It has great fashion jewelry in gold based on the ancient items in the museum. Earrings and necklace replicas make special gifts to remind you of your trip.
- Bird lovers get ready to be entranced! Humming birds will hover starting at breakfast. You will find more than 170 species. Sunrise is the best time to view Costa Rica’s colorful birds. If you have good luck, you may get a selfie with a new “friend”!
- Hike the Quetzales National Park. This 12,350 acre park has 14 eco-systems and 3 forest zones! It has both natural water sources and highland forests.
- See the division between North and South America which occurs at the Continental Divide.
- Spy on multiple local bird species in flight or nesting.
- Relish awe inspiring views between the Central Volcanic Cordillera and the Talamanca Mountains. They are near by to both the southern and central Pacific coasts. (To the east is the Caribbean Sea.)

Costa Rica has one of the world’s richest eco-diversity venues. Its mangrove swamps, filled with birds. Species of birds range from the royal tern, brown pelican, little blue pelican and the bare-throated tiger-heron. Mammals include the exotic white-nosed coati, two and three-toed Sloth and the white-faced capuchin monkey. In addition, six crab species lumber through the forests. Also at home are massive boa constrictors and vibrant green lizards.
- Hiking the Corcovado National Park
Founded in 1975, the Corcovado National Park has both ocean (2,400 hectares) and rainforest (54,539 hectares) sectors. It is a top venue for tourists from around world. It is rich with many species: 6,000 of which are lurking insects, 116 amphibians, 140 mammals and most popular? 400 bird species! The Corcovado National Park has 6 eco-systems.

Year round you can see depths of up to 65 feet! You will see a wide range of species from whales, dolphins, manta rays, turtles and colorful tropical fish.
DAY 7 End of Tour
Peru Solo Trekker 4 U Insights:
Machu Picchu is one of the world’s most famous sights. For global tourists, Machu Picchu is the ultimate draw to stroll slowly leisurely through an ancient monument while enjoying modern conveniences. For an active holiday, it is an ideal spot for outdoor sports and hiking. You can choose either or a mix of both styles that fit your budget and interests.
As a result, Peru is a top solo travel destination as a standalone trip. However, it is also well located to combine a trip to Peru with a visit to its neighboring countries of Chile to the south or Ecuador to the north.
Peru Solo Travel Beyond Machu Picchu-Other Key Sights Not to Miss:
Peru’s Amazon: Iquitos is a common launch point for Peru’s Amazon. You can choose an adventure tour going on an expedition with a small boat and crew. I did this in another part of the Amazon. With just fifteen new friends, we were able to make our way into remote areas not possible for larger boats. There is a real thrill to making your way through the rain forest with your guide cutting a path ahead of you. Another plus is that it is more likely that you can see wildlife in their native habitat by going “off the grid”! The Amazon region covers two-thirds of Peru’s territory. It is a haven for wildlife viewing up close and personal! The sloth and monkeys high above the canopy are most often photographed. However, I fell in love with the capybaras. These gentle giants can reach 120 pounds. They love to lounge in the natural pools that are throughout the Amazon. They are perfect for an exotic selfie!
However, if you would like a luxury 5-star river cruise, there are many great deals with no single supplements. A good choice would be combining Machu Picchu with the Amazon.

OAT Travel has 30 years’ experience in the travel industry and guarantees that groups will be no larger than sixteen people. Better yet: they have no single supplement* on land tours!

Whitewater rafting adventure:
DAY 5 Time for an adventure: go whitewater rafting in the Urubamba River. This has always been one of my favorites for solos or families. It is an adventure for both novices and experts. Before viewing the ruins of Ollantaytambo, you will meet a local family for lunch, and have the chance to try local dishes. Ask about the piranha! I was really shocked to find that they make very tasty appetizers.
