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

Begin your adventure with an early ride to the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. You will have the chance of driving across the city of San Jose and experiencing the busy lifestyle of this very populated area. Upon leaving the city, the landscape will become a combination of active volcanoes and coffee plantations, which are located in the central mountain range. The scenery will transform into a beautiful and unsuspected area of pristine forest, the Braulio Carrillo National Park. This is a tropical forest in the back yard of San Jose. As the journey continues, you will begin to see banana, pineapple, and ornamental plantations that represent an important part of the Costa Rican economy.

The ground transportation will be exchanged for water transportation as you prepare to enter Tortuguero. The boat trip will take you through a combination of lagoons and rivers where the scenery and wildlife will give you a reason to be using your cameras constantly until you reach the remote location of Tortuguero.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

Day 3 – Tortuguero National Park

Explore the beauty of the Tortuguero National Park by boating through the canals in the middle of the rainforest. Keep an eye out for monkeys, iguanas, and caimans, which are plentiful in this area of the country. Experience a breath-taking natural wetland established all around the location of the lodge. The first thing you have to expect in this area will be rain, as well as the chance to see a diverse amount of tropical fauna.

During the afternoon, enjoy a chance to relax at the swimming pool of the lodge, or if you rather, explore the beautiful botanical gardens of the area. This is also a good opportunity to visit the nearby village or the Caribbean Conservation Corporation (CCC) to learn about the program of sea turtles and the sustainable project that this unique community has.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

Day 4 – Tortuguero National Park, Arenal Volcano Region

Catch the boat again and travel back to the ground transportation to begin a visit to one of the most famous regions of the country – Arenal Volcano. This area is very prosperous due to the active pyroclastic mountain and its effect on the richness of the volcanic soil. You will pass by many small villages along the way, demonstrating the constant movement of an active society and a wide variety of cultural groups.  After getting settled into your hotel, 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 – Zip-lining, Arenal Volcano National Park

In the morning, get ready for the ziplining excursion, one of the most exciting experiences we have in Costa Rica. In order to explore the treetops and enjoy the rain forest from a different perspective, the canopy ride has become an interesting way of getting to know that specific area of the forest which was limited to scientists for a long time. Swinging through the forest by way of platforms and transversals is part of what many visitors consider the most memorable times while being in Costa Rica. If your touristic preferences do not lean toward the adventurous side, you could opt to spend the morning strolling through the shops and immersing yourself in the culture of the nearby village.

After lunch, your tour guide will take you to a beautiful trail just by the volcano in the Arenal Volcano National Park.  Here you will have the chance to learn about the different volcanic aspects of the country. Enjoy the active giant from its base as you hike to the lava rock that is left from the 1992 eruption.

Breakfast is included.

Day 6 – White Water Rafting, Village Visit

In the morning, get ready for a wet ‘n wild adventure as you paddle through the rapids of a rainforest river, and then play around in tranquil river pools in an isolated rainforest river canyon.

After lunch, take time to walk around the town of Fortuna. Explore the souvenir shops, mingle with the locals, and experience the dynamic a countryside town with a touristy twist.

Breakfast is included.

Day 7 – ATV Adventure, Transfer to Northern Pacific Coast

In the morning, experience the flavor of the Costa Rica countryside as you ride an ATV around the lowlands at the base of the volcano. After the ATV excursion, say goodbye to the volcano as you depart for the Pacific Coast. Guanacaste, the province where you will spend the last days of your adventure, is considered to have the most gorgeous beaches of this latitude. The windy ride will convert into a very flat, straight road where cattle farming will be the primary activity of the area. Enjoy the view as the topography of this country will show many changes in a short distance, making your journey an unforgettable experience.

During the afternoon, say goodbye to your guide and driver, check into your resort, and relax on the Pacific Coast.  Keep an eye out for wildlife, which could be hidden all around the area of the hotel.  Take your camera and go for an evening stroll or simply enjoy the view of the Papagayo Gulf – the same view that has inspired many famous Hollywood actors to choose this area as a private paradise to relax.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

Day 8 – Northern Pacific Coast

Select from a wide variety of activities according to your preference.  You could hang out by the pool, go bird watching, arrange a daily sightseeing tour, or even go deep sea fishing.  These additional excursions can be arranged in advance with the front desk of the resort. Whatever activity you choose, you’ll find that the area of Guanacaste has a lot to offer. (Please note: any excursion you book through the front desk is not included in the price of this tour package).

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.
