Trip 24

Welcome to Costa Rica Herping Adventures. My Name is Jim Kavney: I’ve been guiding field herping trips to Costa Rica for 16 years. I do this because I enjoy doing it, not as a source of income, so I try very hard to keep the cost down. If I can pay the expenses of the trips and have enough for ads, I’m happy. I enjoy seeing herpers experience the wonders of the rain forest for the first time. When they find their first herp, they know they are living their dream……

Our 16th Year!!

Once you’ve decided you want to experience Costa Rica Herping Adventures for yourself, it’s best to book your trip with us ASAP. If there are spots available, grab one while the getting is good. Over the years I’ve seen them be open for months and fill up in a few weeks.  You just never know, act now and don’t be disappointed. I know it’s a lot to do, making sure you have the time off, that it’s OK with your loved one, that it’s in your budget, etc. So, make a list and get started. Believe me almost all herpers would love to go on a trip like this, but for some reason they never do, it’s always next year. I’d love to share the next trip with you, but only you can make it happen.


Includes hotel, ground transportation and meals at final destination.

Air travel to Costa Rica is not included.

You will need a up to date Passport.

This trip will be at Arenal Lodge!! Our Sixth trip there. This location

being a far distance from the airport and our drive through the mountains

with unpredictable weather conditions will make it necessary to spend

Saturday night (not included in the price) at the Hotel Aeropuerto and fly home

on Sunday. This extra expense is not covered in the fee for the trip along

with the meal that night. The room runs approximately $80, we usually

double up and split the cost.
