“Here at H4H, we are constantly reminded of the strength and determination of our wounded Heroes; they demonstrate true courage, spirit and humour in the face of extreme hardship. They are truly inspiring and we think they deserve the best, which is why we are so excited to introduce our Costa Rica Trek for 2012. We hope that our wounded Heroes will inspire you to take on your own challenge by getting involved, to do something for yourself and also raise money to give something back to these incredible young men and women.

Everything from palm tree-lined tropical beaches to smoking volcanoes, cloud forest, rainforest and mangrove swamp await us in the paradise country of Costa Rica! Our coast-to-coast challenge will take us from the Pacific Coast to the Caribbean Coast on foot and raft. We will travel through coffee plantations and oak forests, deep into cloud forest and dense tropical rainforest where we will be serenaded by howler monkeys and exotic birdcalls.

Starting in the capital San Jose, our route takes us through thriving rural communities before we make our way into the rainforest. Watch out for wildlife such as beautiful tree frogs, some no larger than your fingernail, which are perfectly camouflaged amongst the vegetation of the forest. After marvelling at Turrialba, one of the highest volcanoes in Costa Rica, we will drive to the Pacuare River to raft around 30km in grade III-IV rapids. Not for the feint-hearted! From our finishing point at Siquerres, we will then head to Matina and walk the final part of our journey to the Caribbean Coast. Adrenaline junkies and sun-seekers alike will get their fix on this trip!”
