Details about the accommodation: We will stay exclusively in hotels where breakfast is included, so we can focus on getting on the road as soon as possible.

San José

Day 1-2
Our first stop is at San José, where we will rendezvous and get to know the capital of Costa Rica. We will have our first dinner together, get to know each other, and share our expectations of the trip ahead of us. In bed early for an early departure the day after.

La Fortuna

Day 2-3
We take the road to the northern part of the country, where we are greeted by the Colossus that is Arenal Volcano. If we are lucky and the skies are clear, the giant can be seen looming over La Fortuna town. Here we will visit La Fortuna Waterfall, a beautiful blue waterfall in the heart of the Rainforest, where we can take a swim and refresh ourselves. We will visit the Baldi Hot Springs and when the sun goes down, we will explore the jungle in the middle of the night with a guided tour in search of wildlife.

Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio

Day 3-6
On day 3 of our adventure we will travel to the Pacific. On the way we will stop at crocodile infested Tarcoles river to see the ancient reptiles that dwell in its waters. We continue south towards Manuel Antonio National Park. This is where we will spend most of our trip. Manuel Antonio will serve as our headquarters for our Pacific adventure. On day 4 we will visit the interior of the National Park, where pristine beaches are home to monkeys and other wildlife that coexist with the visitors. The park has several trails that can be explored, and beaches where we can rest and enjoy in the blue waters. After sunset we can explore the nightlife of Manuel Antonio. This day will have plenty of leisure time so that we can relax. Several activities can be hired outside the park like parasailing. On day 5 we will entertain our adventurous side with an adrenaline filled experience. We can choose between Ziplining, ATV tours in the jungle, Horseback riding or a boat tour in search of dolphins. We will have the rest of the day to spend at the beach, drink cocktails, watch the sunset and rest. On day 6 we will visit what to me is one of the most beautiful places in Costa Rica, Nauyaca Waterfalls. This is an 8km (5 mile) hike to the waterfall, where we can take amazing pictures and swim in the refreshing waters. We then return to San José.

San José

Day 6-7
We return to San José and spend the night in a comfy hotel with a pool close to the airport. We can explore once again the nightlife of the capital, get to know more about the pura vida lifestyle and say goodbye. The next day, a shuttle will take you back to the airport.
