Welcome to Costa Rica! On the first day of your vacation one of our reps will meet you & greet you at the gate of the airport, to take you to the Country Inn & Suites Hotel in San Jose (other hotels available upon request). Your accommodation would be in a standard deluxe room with breakfast included (upgrades available upon request). The standard deluxe rooms feature air conditioning, cable TV, coffee maker, mini fridge, mini bar, daily newspaper, hair dryer, high speed internet access, in-room safe, iron/ironing table & telephone. The hotel also has an on-site restaurant, swimming pool, sauna, gym & convenient access to popular local attractions, as well as historic sites.
On this Arenal tour your family will experience lots of the beauties of Costa Rica in one single day: you will visit a coffee plantation to learn about Costa Rican Coffee & taste it; also observe 2 waterfalls, a bird-watching station & our famous “iguana bridge”, where often we see sloths too. Once in Arenal, you’d go zip lining in the rainforest, do a 150 feet-high rappel line, see an indigenous tribe presentation & go to the relaxing Paradise Hot Springs. Your accommodation would be at the “Secreto La Fortuna Hotel” (other hotels available upon request), in a superior room with breakfast included; A/C, Cable TV, hot water shower & safety box. This hotel also features a small swimming pool & great views of Arenal Volcano.
On this tour you will travel to walk on the large lava flow that came out of Arenal Volcano during the big eruption in the year 1,968. This lava-rock formation is actually the best look-out point to take pictures of the impressive Arenal Volcano; and is also the closest point of allowance to this beautiful mountain, since there are no trails or roads to go up on the summit (it is not possible to go up on the slopes of this volcano because it is still restricted). The hike takes about 1.5-2 hours in total, where your bilingual guide will tell you about the history of the most beautiful volcano of Costa Rica.
Today you will travel to one of the most beautiful beach destinations in Costa Rica: the Manuel Antonio National Park area, rated as one of the 10 most beautiful in the world. On the way there we’ll make a few stops to show you some unique things of our country, such as crocodiles from a bridge; we also go searching for scarlet macaws, as well as stopping at the Jaco Beach lookout point, where you can take pictures of its gorgeous bay. Your lodging would be at the Cabinas Espadilla Hotel (other hotels available upon request), in a standard room with breakfast included; A/C, hot water, safe-deposit box, cable TV, coffee maker, refrigerator & Wi-Fi. This hotel also features swimming pool & beautiful gardens.
The 5th day of your vacation is free for you to enjoy of Manuel Antonio Beach, the hotel’s pool or to book some additional activities. Some ideas for things to do are: horseback riding in the rainforest to observe waterfalls, waterfall rappelling, parasailing, snorkeling, national park tour, kayaking or a relaxing massage. Please let us know if you would like to add any of these activities & we’ll be happy to do the coordination, the idea is for you to relax & enjoy of your vacation, we can take care of all logistics for you.
It’s time to go back home. Your own private transportation will take you to San Jose International Airport for your returning flight.
