For nature lovers, one of the best parts of traveling the world is the opportunity to explore breathtaking landscapes and catch a glimpse of local fauna. Whether it’s snapping a photo of a majestic elephant on safari or playing with a friendly husky after an exhilarating sled-dog excursion, there are endless chances to interact with animals when you vacation with Inspirato. Discover five of our favorite experiences for animal lovers to seek out on their next Inspirato trip.
Wildlife-watching — Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Rica
Known for its lush preserved forests and abundant wildlife, any animal lover would be delighted to explore this eco-friendly peninsula in peaceful Costa Rica. Comprising 1,400 acres of private land, the peninsula offers the chance for a keen eye to spot tropical birds, monkeys, sloths, and even a jaguar among the trees. Stay in the standalone, treehouse-style home Venado Diez, or on the luxe Andaz Resort property.
Normally when members return (from dog-sledding), they tell us how much fun it was and that the experience was so great! They also really love being able to meet the pups, with the option to play with them for a bit.Lia Cahill ByramDestination Manager at Solaris
Horseback riding — Jackson, Wyoming
With the Tetons as a breathtaking backdrop, opt for four-legged transportation and explore Wyoming on horseback. Traverse the Western landscape with a trusty steed and a guide, and if members stay at our Amangani resort partner, Spring Creek Riding Stables is just a short walk from the property. Five-bedroom Bison Ridge is a great choice for larger groups—plus, the creekside hot tub surrounded by trees offers opportunity to bird-watch.
Snorkeling — Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
For the intrepid Inspirato member, our properties in Grand Cayman, nestled along the pristine Seven Mile Beach, are an ideal spot to snorkel. An array of sea critters—from turtles to manta rays—await within the crystal-clear waters. Standalone home Villa Cielo puts members just steps from a sandy swimming cove.
Safari Experience 2019 — Tanzania
Catch East African wildlife in action inside Serengeti National Park, considered one of Africa’s seven wonders, with this immersive, exclusive Inspirato Only experience. Members will have the chance to see more than 750 different species of plains-dwelling creatures—most notably elephants, rhinos, and lions—and meet members of the local Maasai community, all while staying in luxurious safari camps and lodges.
