The Tarantula’s Way
Limon Province, Costa Rica[16.6 miles]
These on-foot night safaris, led by a wildlife local expert guide, aren’t just about tarantulas. Nights are the best times to see nocturnal mammals like kinkajou – a kind of Central American bushbaby, and a host of rare birds from nightjars to huge owls. Arachnophobes should have no fear – the spiders are shy – disappearing quickly unless you tread very lightly.
