What to Expect Each Day

A Run

Each morning we'll go on a trail run through the varied scenery of Costa Rica. Courses will be 5-12k and have some elevation gain. 

(We use the term “trail run” very loosely. A lot of the time you'll be hiking because it’s uphill or because you just want to slow down and take in the scenery.)

Some Fun

After the run each day we'll eat lunch together followed by either free time or another adventure (e.g., whitewater rafting, a zip line tour, etc.). 

We’ll end each day with dinner and more relaxing.


Detailed itineraries are available on the details page for each trip.

"I usually come home from vacation needing another vacation, completely exhausted from planning all the details. This trip was incredibly well organized and I didn't have to do a thing!"

–Kim, Costa Rica 2020
