This is no ordinary tour; this is an A.R.E. Tour--where not only does your body take a journey, but so does your mind and spirit!
From your tour leader Peter Woodbury:
“Lush rainforest, epic volcanoes, pristine waterways and a diverse wildlife population come to mind when thoughts of Costa Rica arise. Your adventure will take you through Manuel Antonio National Park, where you’ll be immersed in the wonders of the rainforest. Home to monkeys, sloths, turtles and over 300 species of bird you’ll be sure to witness an abundance of wildlife and scenery which makes this an incredible destination for eco-lovers. Stay in eco-lodges, adventure through coffee and chocolate plantations, float over spectacular lakes by boast, trek through cloud forests. Costa Rica has so much to offer the traveler seeking a truly adventurous escape.”

For more than 40 years, the A.R.E. has been offering annual travel programs to explore concepts in the Edgar Cayce material while visiting a variety of travel destinations that focus on insights from the Cayce readings, dreams, meditation, as well as all of the activities popular with "regular" tourists.
The tour content is meant to provide an educational and enrichment element that is not found on most tours. All of the tours are led by outstanding speakers and teachers in the metaphysical and holistic fields, specifically from the Edgar Cayce perspective. Top local guides, who are also part of each program, highlight the historical and cultural aspects that would be included in any first class tour. Special care is taken to include the heart and soul of the areas visited. Emphasis is placed on sacred sites and areas of historic spiritual significance.
