Turu Ba Ri Nature and Adventure Park is the perfect destination for a Family Vacation in Costa Rica. We have adventure options suitable for the whole family from the quietest option like the Nature guided tour or a horseback ride to The Canopy Tour, The Superman Zip line for the more daring. We re located only 10 minutes from Orotina, 50 minutes from San Jose or 40 minutes from Puntarenas port.
