Itinerary (all activities subject to change due to availability)Leisure map 2

Day 1 (Dinner)

    • Depart for warm, sunny Costa Rica.  Arrive in Alajuela where a shuttle will be waiting to transport you to beautiful San Ramón.  Settle in for the evening and get your first taste of Costa Rican (Tico) culture.  Note: San José is the capital city but the airport is actually in the neighboring town of Alajuela.

Day 2 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

    • Start your morning off with an authentic Tico (Costa Rican) breakfast and then travel into the rainforest.  We will visit the Eternal Children’s Rainforest, the
      Costa Rica 325
      Into the jungle…

      largest private reserve in Costa Rica.

    • Hike the trails or relax at the station and take in the scenery.  You’re bound to see many exotic birds such as the golden pendulum.

Day 3 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

    • Today we’ll visit a wild animal rescue center.  These centers receive rainforest animals that have been injured or illegally taken from the forest and hopes to be able to release them into the wild again.  25% of Costa Rica is designated as a protected area, however, there isn’t any government funding for these kinds of

      centers.  Here we’ll see parrots, monkeys, raccoons, caimans, and much more.

    •  In the afternoon travel to the tourist town of La Fortuna, site of the Arenal volcano.  Thanks to the volcano, relax in thermal hot springs to wind down the evening. 

Day 4 (Breakfast, Lunch)

    • Now that you’ve hiked the rainforest come down to the banks of the Caño negro and observe the river wildlife on a casual boat ride.   Bird, fish, lizard, monkey and crocodile (from a safe distance) sightings common!

    • After your full day tour take some time to explore the town, eat some familiar food or do some souvenir shopping.

Day 5 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

    • Travel to Monteverde via lake Arenal.  Monteverde, wildly known for its cloud forest is best reached via the popular taxi-boat-taxi method.  Cut across the man-made reservoir and then travel up the mountain to the town.
    • Once we get settled in at the hotel we’ll then tour the cloud forest… at night.  This is

      really when the rainforest comes alive and you’ll be stunned at what the guide can show you!

Day 6-7 (Breakfast)

    • Beach time!  Travel to the beach and relax, pura vida style.  Here you’ll have free days to do whatever you want whether walking on the beach, surfing, snorkeling or hiking the surrounding areas.  Note: Lunch, dinner and tourist activites not included while at beach.

Day 8 (Breakfast, Dinner)

    • Take one last dip in the ocean and then pack up as we begin the journey back to the Central Valley.
    • Stay the last night in town to enjoy the park, souvenir shop and have a lovely dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 9 (Breakfast)

    • Transfer to airport.  Just like that your tour has come to an end.  We really hope you  enjoyed your stay and would love to host you again in the future.  ¡Pura vida!
