Arenal, Monteverde & Manuel Antonio
Beach Driving Tour

10 days/ 9 nights
(Rates valid until Apr 30th, 2011)

Day 1: SAN JOSE - You will be met at the airport and transferred to the Hotel Irazú. We selected the Hotel Irazú because it is only ten minutes from the airport and is on the Pan-American highway, so you don't have to drive across San Jose either when you leave for Arenal or when you return from Manuel Antonio beach.

Day 2: ARENAL - Your air conditioned mid-sized SUV, a Suzuki Vitara, will be delivered to the hotel the following morning, and you're off to Volcan Arenal, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. En route you will pass through Zarcero, famous for the sculpted bushes surrounding its picturesque church. Option: Going a few miles out of your way you can also visit Sarchí, home of Costa Rica's traditional brightly painted ox carts and a great stop for buying beautiful items made of Costa Rican hardwoods.

Day 3: ARENAL – You will spend two nights at the Arenal Nayara La Fortuna de San Carlos with a direct view of the Arenal Volcano This 5,300-foot high cone-shaped mountain laid dormant for hundreds of years, but in 1968 it erupted destroying the small town of Tabacon at its base. Now there are fascinating small eruptions regualarly. During the day you may choose to visit Volcan Arenal National Park, hike to a waterfall, or relax in the thermal baths at Tabacon Hot Springs. (See Arenal section for more information).

Day 4 - 5: MONTEVERDE – After taking the scenic drive around Lake Arenal through lush rolling hills you arrive at Monteverde where you will spend two nights at the chalet-style Fonda Vela. While in Monteverde take a guided tour of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve or one of the other private reserves, or take a horseback ride to a 200 ft waterfall. (See Monteverde section for more information).

Day 6 - 8: MANUEL ANTONIO – After enjoying the cloud forest it's a short but bouncy drive down the mountain to Manuel Antonio Beach. As you cross the bridge at the Río Tárcoles take a look for crocodiles. They are usually there. At one of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica, you will stay at the Parador Hotel for three nights.

Day 9 - 10:  SAN JOSE – After relaxing on the beach you will return to San José by way of Atenas (the most perfect climate in the world) and your room at the Hotel Irazú.    

Your vehicle will be picked up at the hotel and transportation will be provided the next.
