There will be a prize for the winning team and all participants will be rewarded.
Treasure Hunt Event Description
After a delicious natural drink, the group will organize teams for the Treasure Hunt Adventure! Led by expert naturalist guides, the adventure begins in search of important clues hidden in the forest. Throughout the activity, participants will learn about the importance of conserving the ecosystem, and will have the chance to interact with their guides. The activity will involve hiking for approximately one hour and a half on nature trails.
Two alternative walking itineraries are available with two levels of difficulty to suit participant needs. After capturing your Team Flag at Tower 9, there will be water and soft drinks waiting next to a rainforest waterfall, where you can enjoy the incredible view.
This unique adventure showcases one of our parks’ signature activities – a ride in the rainforest aerial tram gondola. Participants will search for hidden clues while the tram soars at a height of 40 m (130 feet) above the ground, offering panoramic views of the sub canopy (middle part of the forest), the upper canopy and its hanging gardens. Expert naturalist guides will answer all questions, making the ride an interactive experience in a world of incredible beauty and biological diversity.
Incentive Programs and Special Events
Open-air gondolas with canvas awnings seat eight passengers and a naturalist guide. The rugged topography of our forest means that the tram skims the forest floor, and then soars to a maximum height of 130 feet above a naturally wild valley.
At the end of the tram ride, participants and their guides will return to the main Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica Pacific facilities. Next, they will explore the Heliconias Gallery, an amazing exhibition of colorful tropical flowers, and our Medicinal Plant Garden, which boasts a complete selection of medicinal, aromatic and edible plants.
There will be opportunities to learn about all the plants, their practical uses and unique characteristics. The final clues to the treasure hunt can be found at our unique snake exhibit, where participants can discover some of Costa Rica’s most important snake species.
After completing all the Treasure Hunt tasks, teams will return to the main building, as fast as they can. Each participant’s time will be recorded, and all participants win and celebrate.
