This package is the perfect opportunity to take an extended holiday – out of the ordinary! You’ll do things you never dreamed of, experiencing the adrenaline-fueled thrills that make Costa Rica the adventure capital of Central America.
After arriving San José, you’ll get your blood pumping while white water rafting to your first hotel, Pacuare Lodge, which is deep in the jungle. Experience the unique quiet of rooms without electricity, and listen to the sounds of nature just outside your room.
Next, you’ll make your way to the Arenal area, famous for its towering volcano. You’ll be staying at the lovely Arenal Springs. Arenal is pure excitement, and you won’t miss a bit of it with a rappelling tour down canyons and waterfalls, a hike around the volcano, and an adventure on ATVs.
On to the world-famous Monteverde. You’ll arrive via boat transfer – definitely something to talk at dinner at your hotel, the Belmar. The area is known for its cloud forest, and you’ll experience in two different ways: first a hiking tour with a knowledgeable naturalist guide, and then as you whiz through the air on zip lines, a gondola, and hanging bridges.
After all that, you’ll be ready for some R&R! Get plenty of it at the beach, Coco Beach to be specific. You’ll spend four days at Villa Buena Onda, with stunning views, close access to nearby beaches, and remarkable service. Refreshed, you’ll head home after a private transfer to the Liberia international airport.
