DAY BY DAY
Day 1—Your Costa Rica eco-adventure is about to begin! Once you land at San José international airport, we’ll pick you up, and after a two-hour ride you’ll get to your first destination: Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel and Nature Reserve. Settle into your new home! You’ll have a cozy fireplace in your bedroom, with a fully stocked minibar and private patio, or a comfortable bar/restaurant setting if you decide to mingle with other guests.
Day 2—It’s time to explore the extensive grounds of Villa Blanca. Take a guided Cloud Forest Nature Tour on one of the private trails of the villa. Learn about its ecosystem, delicate plants, birds, and other wildlife you may encounter here. Visit a featured romantic spot on the property—a wedding chapel with its own piece of history*! A spa is also available, as well as other optional tours; just inquire about the possibilities.
Day 3—Take this free day to further explore and enjoy the property and cozy up in front of the fireplace.
Day 4—Pack your bags, as you’re going to Manuel Antonio today! Your private transfer will take you to Si Como No Spa Resort and Wildlife Refuge. This award-winning property is set on a jungle-covered hillside just above the national park, allowing amazing jungle or Pacific Ocean views from all rooms. Enjoy resort amenities like an adult-only swimming pool with a swim-up bar, THX cinema theater, along with the perks of a boutique hotel: personalized service and great dining.
Day 5—It’s time to explore nature again! You’ll have a guided tour to the national park in the morning and a free afternoon—you can relax at the beach within the park (free shuttles back are provided by the hotel), or opt for an additional tour.
Day 6—Sunbathe, swim, and relax by the pool or at the beach; the choice is yours. Si Como No has a butterfly botanical atrium, crocodile lagoon, and amphibian garden; you can also enjoy a guided night tour, watching it come to life as the sunset settles over Manuel Antonio.
Day 7—Another adventure-filled day! Today you’ll go on a full day tour to Santa Juana community, set high in the hills above Manuel Antonio. Learn about local history as you pass palm plantations. Soon you’ll be visiting a traditional, oxen-driven sugar mill, hiking through the rainforest, swimming below the waterfalls of Rodeo River, fishing in the fishponds, and taking in sweeping vistas of the Pacific while enjoying your lunch at El Mirador Rancho restaurant.
Day 8—After a hearty breakfast, it’s time to head home. Your private transfer will take you on a three-hour ride to San José airport. Farewell!
