Signature Vacations Launches Off the Beaten Path Program

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 17, 2015) - The ideal choice for the would-be adventurer not willing to compromise on comfort, Signature Vacations' new Off the Beaten Path program will offer the perfect balance between eco-adventures and all inclusive relaxation. Combining a stay in one of the tour operator's leading resorts with a series of full or half day excursions, the new vacation concept will enable customers to really experience the heart and soul of the country they're visiting.

Available in Costa Rica, Panama, La Ceiba and Roatan, the number of Off the Beaten Path tours selected is flexible and the price for the excursion bundle works out to be less than if each tour were purchased separately. Highlights may include going in search of howler monkeys, herons and kingfishers on an escorted canoeing trip along La Ceiba's Cacao Lagoon in, exploring geysers, fumaroles and hot springs at Rincon de la Vieja National Park in Costa Rica, or discovering Panama City's UNESCO-recognized historic centre.

President of Tour Operations for Signature Vacations, Andrew Dawson, commented, "We're really excited about this new concept as we feel it combines two of the most important elements of any vacation: relaxation and exploration. While many people like the idea of adventure travel, in reality most are put off by concerns about the availability of suitable accommodations, accessibility of local transport and an insufficient knowledge of regional customs once you head off the tourist trail. This program essentially offers our customers the best of both worlds. In addition to their all inclusive package, they can also purchase a range of tours that have already been pre-selected and vetted by our destination representatives, NexusTours. Vacationers are left to simply relax and enjoy the array of scenic beauty, natural wonders and cultural richness these relatively unspoiled destinations can offer."

A one week all inclusive stay at Riu Palace Costa Rica is available from $895 per person plus $365 taxes based on two people sharing a Junior Suite Gardenview and departing from Toronto September 21, 2015. The Off the Beaten Path package, Essential Costa Rica, that includes a day exploring the fumaroles and hot springs of the Rincon de la Vieja National Park and a day discovering the myriad of different bird life that inhabit the Palo Verde National Park, home to one of the largest concentration of water fowl in the world, can be added from $210 per person.
