2. Look Down on the Jungle in Muelle, Costa Rica
Rise above the rainforest canopy and experience a new perspective on the lush Costa Rican jungle. Chase the clouds, hang with the birds and spot monkeys and sloths in the treetops. Fertile farm land, meandering rivers and a glimpse of the Arenal volcano can be seen from your basket vantage point. Serendipity Adventures is the only hot air balloon operator in Costa Rica, taking off near La Fortuna. For $1200 you can charter a flight for five, or pay $345 per person for a 1-2 hour experience of a lifetime. The photo ops are well worth the lofty expense.
