Overview

Costa Rica has it all. This small, diverse country nestled into the heart of Central America is among the most beuatiful in the Americas. It is known for its beaches, its forests, its animals its dormant volcanoes, its national parks and so much more. 

The geography is relatively small. However, the landscepe is dominated by ancient valcoanoes and verdant, green mountains. We will explore the central part of the country followed by the southwestern section that makes up Manuel Antonio National Park.  Along the way, we’ll see monkeys, Scarlet McCaws, crocodiles, sloths and more. We’ll see a variety of bird life that is second to none. It is an interesting and beautiful place to visit – and we’d love to show it to you.

We have teamed up with our friends at Mayflower Tours who are experts in this itinerary. Excellent local guides will be with us along the way so that we get the most out of our experience. So read on – we think you’ll like what you see. We hope you can join us!

Itinerary

DAY 1 USA / San José, Costa Rica: Depart the USA for San José, Costa Rica. Upon arrival you will be met by our local representative who will transfer our group to the hotel. We will relax before our included dinner as we prepare for our journty through this interesting, mystical country. Meal: D

DAY 2 San José – Arenal area: En route from San José to the Arenal area, visit the La Paz Waterfall Nature Park. Lovely walking paths, interesting animals and several spectacular waterfalls.  Continuing towards Arenal, with an included lunch along the way, a sweet treat awaits. We will then discover the ancient secrets of chocolate, considered a ‘gift of the Gods’, as cacao beans were used for ceremonial drinks and even currency. During this hands-on experience at a cacao plantation, learn the whole process of creating sumptuous chocolate from the fruit of the cacao tree. The day ends with arrival at the hotel, providing awe-inspiring views of Arenal Volcano from every room. Dinner is included at the hotel this evening. Meals: B, L, D

DAY 3 Arenal area: This morning, enjoy a gentle walk along the base of Arenal Volcano, a magnificent natural phenomenon, during a visit to Arenal National Park. Our local guide takes us through the forest, over the lava flows, and to the destroyed area now in the process of regeneration. Return to the hotel for lunch on your own and the remainder of the day at leisure. Later this afternoon, depart the hotel for a visit to a local farm for an educational and culinary experience. Stroll around the farm with a guide as you see a variety of flora and fauna and learn about the products being organically grown. Pick tubers and other vegetables, along with fruits, to be used in the evening meal. Learn about sugar cane, the milling process, and have a taste of its derivatives. Learn how to make tortillas and enjoy a typical local dinner on site. This experience will give you a true immersion into local life. Meals: B, D

DAY 4 Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge: While in the Arenal area, enjoy a full day excursion to Caño Negro National Wildlife Refuge, a remote “everglades” type wetlands, teeming with different species of flora, fauna and birdlife. Enjoy a boat ride on the Rio Frio, where you’ll have an opportunity to see a plethora of wildlife: snake-birds, heron, comorants, howler, spider and white-faced monkeys, three-toed sloth, basilik lizards (also
known as Jesus Christ lizards), turtles and much more. This unique experience showcases the natural beauty of Costa Rica. A typical lunch is provided during the excursion. Meals: B, L

DAY 5 Arenal area – Manuel Antonio: After breakfast, travel to the Manuel Antonio area, famous for its national park. En route, another ‘local flavor’ awaits as you visit a “Cevichera” and witness a demonstration of how to make Costa Rican ceviche. Using the freshest fish from the area and ingredients from local farmers, this small entrepreneurship shows how collaborating with the locals supports economic community growth. A sampling follows, before venturing to a nearby town for lunch on your own. Upon arrival at the hotel in Manuel Antonio, the remainder of the day is at leisure until the included dinner. Meals: B, D

DAY 6 Manuel Antonio National Park: Today’s included tour visits nearby Manuel Antonio National Park, the smallest of the parks in Costa Rica but one of the most popular. There is a magic to this park that is hard to explain. Perhaps it’s the park’s forest, mangroves, lagoons and beach vegetation that supports 109 species of mammals and 184 species of birds (with migrants bringing the bird species to some 270) that make it so amazing. Among the inhabitants that can be easily seen are sloths, iguanas, agoutis, armadillos, raccoons, coatimundis and the adorable squirrel monkey. After the excursion, return to the hotel where the remainder of the day is at leisure to enjoy the beautiful grounds and amenities. Meal: B 

DAY 7 Manuel Antonio: This morning, depart by coach to the Nauyaca Waterfalls. Upon arrival, board smaller vehicles for a ride through the beautiful landscape and wonders of the tropical rain forest to the lower falls.

Return to the hotel in time for lunch and a final afternoon at leisure before the
farewell dinner. Meals: B, D

DAY 8 Manuel Antonio / San José / USA: After breakfast, your tropical get-away comes to an end as you return to the San José airport for your flight home. Our fligh departs in the afternoon.
