Latin American adventure travel company—Southern Explorations, specialising in crafting custom small-group trips and itineraries to Latin America, has recently 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. The team 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.
“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.”
“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.”
