Essential Costa Rica is made for nature lovers who are looking to get the most out of what Costa Rica has to offer in terms of its rich biodiversity.

Savegre River: Explore the Jungle

Your trip will begin at the Rafiki Safari Lodge, a unique glam-camping experience set in Costa Rica’s lush rainforest. The lodge is located along the Savegre River, and you will get to enjoy on-site activities such as white water rafting and kayaking.

Manuel Antonio: Hit the Beach

After spending a couple of days trying out some of these tours, you will head to one of Costa Rica’s most famous beaches: Manuel Antonio. You’ll spend the next five nights at Si Como No Resort & Spa, a beautiful property conveniently located close to the shores of Manuel Antonio’s beach.

First up is a tour of the Manuel Antonio National Park, followed by an exhilarating canopy tour, with plenty of time to relax and enjoy the resort in between each adventure.

Arenal: Adventure Time

Next you’ll be flying to Arenal, a nature lover’s paradise. You’ll stay at the Arenal Kioro and spend the next few days tasting some chocolate and taking a hanging bridges tour at La Fortuna Waterfall.

Monteverde: The Cloud Forest

The adventure does not stop there! After checking out all that Arenal has to offer, you’ll board a boat and cross Lake Arenal. A private transfer will take you on a short drive through the forest to El Establo Mountain Hotel in Monteverde. You’ll have the chance to take a guided hike through Monteverde’s stunning cloud forest, where your English-speaking naturalist will point out the area’s diverse flora and fauna.

End your exciting tour with a night at one of San Jose’s finest hotels, the Grano de Oro. Be sure to eat dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, considered one of the best in the country.

After your two-week essential holiday around the country, it’s time to head home.
