Arrival at the airport. You will be received at the airport and transferred to your city hotel in San José.
At the hotel, you receive the rental car and drive to the northern lowlands, specifically to La Fortuna at the Arenal Volcano. In the morning you still have the chance to discover the capital San José, take a coffee tour on the slopes of the Poás volcano or visit the La Paz waterfall gardens in Vara Blanca.
In the area around the volcano, which is currently in a resting phase, there are plenty of activities you can enjoy today: hiking, cycling, horse riding, kayaking, ziplining and much more. Have fun!
Next stop - cloud forest. You drive around the reservoir Arenal to Tilarán and continue to the cloud forest paradise around Monteverde. The cool mountain climate creates a magical magic forest that you will discover during these days.
You can expect colourful and diverse epiphytes, moss and ferns, as well as colourful birdlife and cool temperatures. Experience Costa Rica from a different perspective, e.g. from above, on the hanging bridges in Selvatura Park!
Your journey continues to the northern region of Guanacaste at the foot of Rincón de la Vieja National Park. In this dry forest, you can experience the volcanic phenomena of the colossus (the Rincón de la Vieja volcano) up close.
On the circuit at the sector Las Pailas of the National Park, you will pass by bubbling mud holes and sulfur smelling fumaroles. Enjoy cool river or hot pools, filled with thermal water and relax after the hike.
The journey continues to the North or the Central Pacific coast. To reach the beaches of Sámara and Tamarindo you pass by Liberia. To reach Tambor / Montezuma / Santa Teresa you take the ferry from Puntarenas to Paquera. And to get to the Central Pacific coast you simply drive south as soon as you come across the Pan-American Highway
Beach days at the Pacific Coast! In Manuel Antonio, you can also enjoy a short hike in the national park.
Return to the Central Valley where you return the rental car at the airport and start your journey home. Tip: Plan enough time to get to the airport, as there sometimes occur delays on the route, which is mostly single-lane.
