Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive to San Jose, Costa Rica

Your tour starts in San Jose by being picked up at the airport by our Costa Rican English-speaking representative, transferred to your hotel, and provided with general information to prepare you for the tour and your early departure to the Caribbean the next morning.

Meals are not included today.

Day 2 – San Jose to Tortuguero

Be ready for an early departure as you begin your adventure en route to Tortuguero. You will be accessing one of most but beautiful areas of Costa Rica, the Tortuguero National Park. In the process of getting to the final destination, you will drive throughout one of the most spectacular natural sceneries ever, the Braulio Carrillo National Park. This will be one of the only chances you will have to be in contact with the last number of acres of pristine forest on the Caribbean slope of Costa Rica.

After having a delicious native breakfast, the trip will continue through an extended area of different crops, where pineapple and banana plantations have become very popular. At the end of the bus drive, the ground transportation will be exchanged for a challenging adventure – kayaking on the Suerte River, which will lead you straight to your accommodations.

Breakfast and dinner are included.

Day 3 – Tortuguero National Park

In the morning, visit Tortuguero National Park to go kayaking through the infamous canals. Tortuguero is a place where you will be interacting with all of the different natural wonders simply by taking a journey throughout the waterways. After lunch, the afternoon will be dedicated back on the Tortuguero canals, or if you prefer, enjoy a nice stroll on the beach, for the lodge is located just by the Caribbean Sea. This part of the Costa Rican coastline is not recommended for swimming, but it would be the perfect place to walk and enjoy an interesting mixture of jungle and ocean view.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

Day 4 – Tortuguero to Fortuna

The adventure will continue on the way to Fortuna, one of the most popular areas in Costa Rica due to its active Arenal Volcano. This peaceful section of the country will welcome you with beautiful scenery and several unique activities. The location of the hotel will allow you to enjoy a fantastic view of the eastern flank of the impressive neighboring volcano. During the evening, relax at the base of the Arenal Volcano while you enjoy the warmth of the natural hot springs.

Breakfast and lunch are included.

Day 5 – Arenal Volcano Hike and Zip-lining

Lace up your hiking boots as you get ready to hike at the base of the Arenal Volcano. You will go as far as the hardened lava flow from one of the most recent eruptions and see the path of destruction from the top of the volcano down to the lands below. In the afternoon, fly through the trees as you discover the rain forest from a different angle.  The zip-lining adventure will leave you in awe of nature with breathtaking views of the volcano, the forest and it wildlife, as well as the valley far below.

Breakfast is included.

Day 6 – Waterfall Hike, Transfer to Central Pacific

Before leaving the area of the Arenal Volcano, hike down to the base of a beautiful waterfall and swim in its refreshing waters.  You can choose to swim in the main pool where the fall plunges into ground or you can enjoy swimming downriver where the waters are calmer.  Drive back through the continental divide as you make your way to the Central Pacific. Enjoy the scenery related to the ornamental plant industry and dairy farming which are the primary industries along this route. Arrive to your accommodations and enjoy the rest of the day on your own.

Breakfast is included.

Day 7 – Crocodile Adventure and Biological Station

Start your day early with a visit to a nearby river where many creatures are waiting in the waters to extend their welcome. This exciting adventure will take you by boat through a beautiful and endangered mangrove swamp where it is possible to admire some of largest crocodiles of the Costa Rican Pacific region.

After the crocodile adventure, travel to a Biological Station and experience a very unique combination of both dry forest and rain forest in the same location.
