Program

Day 1 - Arriving Costa Rica and exploring San José

After your flight, you will exit the plane and instantly feel the pure Costa Rican air; here your adventure begins. A representative will be waiting for you at the airport to accompany you during your private transfer to your hotel. You will be free to explore San José and experience the lively, cultural city. Overnight in San Jose. Meals not included.

Day 2 - Tortuguero National Park

You will begin your travels plundering deeper into nature as you transfer from San José to Tortuguero National Park via a shuttle that takes you past many banana plantations and through colorful Caribbean villages. At La Pavona Dock, you will load your things onto a specially designed riverboat that will take you to your hotel in Tortuguero. The afternoon will be jam-packed with exciting facts and history about the town of Tortuguero as you explore it with the company of your guide. Overnight in Tortuguero. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.

Day 3 - Tortuguero Jungle

Sometimes referred to as “The Amazon of Costa Rica,” Tortuguero is home to an extensive assortment of wildlife and plants hidden deep within the jungle. Your guide will bring you on a boat tour that will slowly propel you through winding canals and deep into lagoons where he will spot different animals that are nearly invisible in camouflage among the trees and vines.

With the possibility of monkeys jumping from tree to tree overhead, this tour is sure to make you feel 100% part of the jungle. Moving from water to land, your guide will then take you on a hike through the jungle to get a closer view of the surrounding flora and fauna. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore or relax with a cocktail by the pool. Overnight in Tortuguero. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.

Day 4 - Cooking in Puerto Viejo

Exiting by boat the same way you entered, you will be leaving Tortuguero to travel by land to the Caribbean Coast of Puerto Viejo Beach. As mouthwatering aromas fill the air, you will learn how to cook like a Costa Rican during your cooking lessons with a highly experienced chef. Of course you will get to taste your masterpiece at the end. Overnight in Puerto Viejo Beach. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.

Day 5 - Free day in Puerto Viejo Beach

Let the tropical ocean breezes guide you as you decide how to spend your free day.

Overnight in Puerto Viejo Beach. Breakfast included.

Day 6 - Pacuare River

Unleash your adventurous side today and prepare yourself for a day filled with exhilaration because you will be white water rafting down one of the top ten rivers in the world, the Pacuare River.

Breakfast and lunch included.

Day 7 - Arenal Volcano

Get your walking shoes on and your cameras ready because today you will experience the many different hues of vivid greens as you explore the rain forest for the very first time, both from the ground and from the treetops, as you will be crossing over the jungle via hanging bridges.

The pristine forest only grows in beauty and awe as you continue your trek toward the looming La Fortuna Waterfall, where you can feel one with nature as you swim in its waters. After you are refreshed and refueled, the adventure will conclude with a leisurely nature walk through the Arenal Volcano National Park. Overnight in Arenal. Breakfast and lunch included.

Day 8 - Monteverde Cloud Forest

Transfer to Monteverde in a rather unique way, partly by jeep and partly by boat, enjoying the significant views of the towering Arenal Volcano. Clouds will begin to encircle you as you reach your destination; Monteverde is home to one of few cloud forests remaining. Mid-afternoon you will learn from the local farmers the process to produce coffee and other goods such as oranges, plantains, and sugar. This is sure to be a delicious day as you finish the tour by tasting a candy you produce by yourself. Overnight in Monteverde. Breakfast included.

In the afternoon, experience life as a bird while “flying” above the canopy of trees through the Cloud Forest on this zip line tour. Enjoy the breeze through your hair and the birds eye view of this forest while taking part in one of Costa Rica’s most top rated activity. Overnight in Monteverde. Breakfast included.

Day 10 - Grande de Tárcoles River

Today you will travel toward the Central Pacific side of Costa Rica to appreciate the purity of the white sand beaches of Manuel Antonio.

Don’t forget your camera, as these creatures are sure to make an appearance and welcome you to their home. Overnight in Manuel Antonio beach. Breakfast and lunch included.
