Southern Explorations Goes Deeper to Enhance Costa Rica Trips

SEATTLE, Jan. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Explorations, specializing in crafting custom small-group trips and itineraries to Latin America, has freshly completed an in-depth scouting mission of Costa Rica's most underappreciated and underexplored regions with the goal of crafting new custom trips and itineraries to the rugged, rain-forested country.

"Most tourism activities have only scratched the surface of what's actually out there in Costa Rica," explains Justin Laycob, Founder & CEO, Southern Explorations. "Particularly when it comes to regions like Nosara and Santa Teresa. You get a genuine sense of adventure just getting into these places. They have a real rustic, bohemian feel. Nosara has been named one of the 20 best surf cities in the world, while those in the know believe Santa Teresa's potential could very well make it the next great Latin America destination."

At times the roads were rough and there were potential challenges throughout the trip, however, it was all part of the appeal to the Southern Explorations scouting team, which was led by Laycob. They discovered unspoiled beaches, witnessed awesome wildlife action, took part in rich gastronomical experiences, and even got in some incredible surfing during the scouting mission. They are now compiling their collective field notes in order to craft self-drive, culinary, and beach/national park explorations.    

In addition to going deep on Nosara and Santa Teresa, the scouting team rafted the Pacuare River while staying at Pacuare Lodge, already available on their Luxury Costa Rica and Costa Rica Adventure itineraries, but now with added enhancements, including new villas and a swimming pool.

"We're really impressed by the enhancements at Pacuare Lodge," notes Laycob. "It was already one of our favorite lodges in all of Latin America and the changes they've made have only served to elevate the whole experience further. It's no surprise National Geographic has identified it as one of their Unique Lodges of the World."

For those travelers looking to get a feel for what the newest Costa Rica offerings will have in store for them, the Southern Explorations team recommends checking out their recently introduced Undiscovered Costa Rica itinerary.
