Day 2San José - Quepos

Travel to Quepos and enjoy a couple days of relaxing and exploring Manuel Antonio National Park.

The small town of Quepos is on the Pacific Coast and this region of Costa Rica is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun and nearby sea. A short distance away, Manuel Antonio National Park offers beautiful white-sand beaches and warm turquoise water, ideal for swimming, fishing, kayaking, boogie boarding, sailing or surfing.

Ascend to the Monteverde cloud forest region. Spend a couple of days exploring the town and a cloud forest reserve, truly a bird lover’s paradise. This unique community has several cooperatives worth visiting.

La Fortuna, the town near the foot of Arenal Volcano is an excellent base for adventure. Hike the area’s nature trails, swim in chilly La Fortuna waterfall or go canyoning (rappelling) and catch a bird’s eye view of the forest greenery.

Day 7 - 8La Fortuna

Enjoy two free days in La Fortuna. Optional activities abound.

Optional activities include full-day whitewater rafting on the Toro or Arenal Rivers, mountain biking, caving, horseback riding, or a tour of the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge.

Finally, after a long day of exploring, you can choose to take a relaxing soak at Baldi Hot Springs.

Day 9La Fortuna - Sarapiquí Rainforest

Enjoy an included visit to one of our supported coffee cooperatives with a local lunch before heading to a jungle oasis in the Sarapiquí Rainforest.

Visit a coffee cooperative in the small village of San Miguel de Sarapiquí and take a traditional coffee tour. Enjoy a local lunch here— there’s even fresh tilapia farmed on site— and then tour the grounds of the cooperative to learn about the coffee process from bean to cup.

Next, board a tractor-drawn cart excellent for navigating the jungle along rugged uphill terrain on the way to our special jungle oasis.

Accommodation is in a rustic lodge with multi-share sleeping arrangements, and shared bathroom facilities.

Day 10Sarapiquí Rainforest

Enjoy a day in the beautiful Sarapiquí Valley. Optional activities (all included in our overnight package, weather-depending) include swimming in the river, night walks, an empanada-making lesson or relax and listen to the sounds of the surrounding rainforest.

Spend the night immersed in the rainforest at a unique jungle oasis. The Sarapiquí Valley is home to hundreds of species of animals, birds, and butterflies, and our jungle lodge brings us into the heart of it all. With a variety of included activities offered by the lodge, spend time hiking, swimming in the river, learning to make empanadas, or just lounging in a hammock surrounded by the stunning Costa Rican countryside.

Day 11Sarapiquí Rainforest - Tortuguero

Head to Tortuguero. Opt to visit the nesting grounds of the green and leatherback turtles at night (seasonal).

The journey to Tortuguero is half the adventure. Begin by taking a tractor-drawn cart, board a private van, and finish it off with a journey by boat.

This unique village has walking paths that extend into the national park, a fantastic place to see wildlife even when turtles aren’t in season.

The trip takes you from the Magsasay Jungle Lodge to the Pozo Azul restaurant. The bumpy trip takes approximately two hours. On our journey in we ford two rivers, by tractor when the water is low, or cross foot-bridges when water levels rise with the rains.
