The New Adventure Spot of Costa Rica
La Fortuna and then Turrialban were the only adventure spots in the country, but now a new place is becoming more and more popular. Providencia is around 13 kilometers from Cerro de la Muerte main road. The road to get to the very small town is curvy and graved, so it is only suitable for 4 x 4 cars. The community of Providencia is interesting because it is the only organized town in Costa Rica that dedicates all their efforts to develop a nice ecotouristic program that includes everyone in the community.
Besides it amazing landscapes and beutiful rivers, it is also the place to climb trees (inside the trunk), do extreme canopy and Tarzan Swing, hiking in the forest to see very old tress and to boulder (climbing rocks).
