Passport to Adventure The Jungles and Rivers of Costa Rica
Costa Rica receives up to 300" (25'') of rainfall annually, creating lush jungles and raging rivers renowned for white water rafting and kayaking. Mark and Julie descend the infamous Rio Pacuare in rafts, then hook up with Olympic kayakers as they practice slalom racing on the Reventazon. At a rainforest reserve, they explore the jungle canopy from a network of suspension bridges 350 feet in the air! They also discuss ‘sustainable development’ projects that have made Costa Rica a global leader in conservation. A guided tour of the Manuel Antonio preserve offers important lessons in biodiversity and the importance of saving the world’s rain forests.
