Summary of The Day: San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, is nestled in a fertile valley among coffee and sugarcane farms. There is not much left of the colonial era architecture, but the National Theater built in 1897 is certainly worth seeing. Other popular attractions include the Jade Museum, Pre-Columbian Gold Museum and the National Museum.
There are plenty of optional activities within the vicinity of San Jose, such as the Poas and Irazu volcanoes, white water rafting, Turu Ba Ri Nature & Adventure Park and the Aerial Tram.
Summary of The Day: We'll travel through very lush countryside to Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the most popular in Costa Rica. This celebrated park is blessed with beautiful lagoons, palm-fringed beaches, a vast array of wildlife, and lush green forests. Some of the many creatures that call Manuel Antonio NP home include sloths, pelicans, white-faced monkeys, anteaters and huge iguanas. Always keep one eye on your belongings; monkeys and raccoons are consummate thieves!
Summary of The Day: Our exploration of Manuel Antonio National Park continues.
Summary of The Day: We'll travel to the town of Quepos, once a very important port for the export of bananas, then ascend a steep mountain road offering great views of lush green hills flattening out to meet the Pacific Ocean, ultimately arriving at the small town of Santa Elena, established by American Quakers in the 1950's.
From here we'll venture into Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve in search of the endangered Quetzal, a very rare and timid bird with incredibly beautiful and unique plumage. There are several paths to explore in this privately-owned reserve, one of which takes you to the continental divide. On a clear day both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans can be seen! We'll also stop at the Hummingbird Gallery where these energetic birds buzz around sipping on nectar. The area around Santa Elena is famous for its ziplines, where you'll have the option to go flying over the cloud forest on a series of cables strung out between giant trees. For the less courageous, you may opt for a walk along a series of suspension bridges above the forest canopy. Other optional activities include lovely horse treks, twilight walks, and coffee and dairy farm tours.
Summary of The Day: Our exploration of Santa Elena continues.
Summary of The Day: Our journey now takes us through the mountains of the cloud forest. The first leg of our trip will bring us to Lake Arenal. We'll then take a boat to the other side, where a minibus will be waiting to take us to La Fortuna.
The main attraction in La Fortuna is the nearby Arenal Volcano. After settling in you'll have time to explore the town on your own. Later that evening you may opt to join on an excursion to a site near the volcano and sample the local spirits. After this, you may want to take a well-earned dip in the local hot springs.
Summary of The Day: Our exploration of La Fortuna continues.
Summary of The Day: We'll then return to San Jose for another night. There are plenty of world class restaurants to choose from and the nightlife is especially good on weekends.
Summary of The Day: Your adventure of a lifetime comes to an end today. If you have a late flight or have lengthened your stay by adding post tour accommodation, you will have more time to explore the sights.
