Costa Rica is known for its splendid natural beauty. This Central American jewel has a thriving culture that you won't find in guidebooks or any maps; it can only be found through experience. Let The Real Deal Tours open the door to explore the "Tico" culture with one of our Arenal Sightseeing and Cultural Tours.
A community-based culture tour offers you the opportunity to do just that; Sightseeing tours "Tico Style". You'll experience, first hand, the way Costa Ricans live and how they work to preserve their environment. Community-based rural tourism is run by community based associations. These communities own private ecological reserves or are near areas of ecological and cultural interest. All of our Arenal Sightseeing and Cultural tours offer visitors a mix of cultural and environmental adventures. You'll have the opportunity to discover the real Costa Rica by exploring secluded trails and meeting the people involved in the conservation at a grass root level.
Book one of our Arenal Sightseeing and Cultural tours below and get ready to immerse yourself in Costa Rica's unique culture.
