Itinerary

Day 1: SAN JOSÉ - You will be met at the airport and transferred to the Hotel Irazú where you will stay two nights in a Premier Room. We selected this Hotel 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 when you leave for Arenal. And also when you return from Manuel Antonio.

Day 2: TORTUGUERO - Start your journey to Tortuguero National Park in the northeastern lowlands. With its abundant wildlife Tortuguero is one of the best areas in Costa Rica for viewing wild animals! You will have the chance to see everything from a variety of bird species; howling, white-faced, and spider monkeys; sloths; crocodiles; iguanas, basilisk lizards and more from the comfort of your boat. During July to September, green sea turtles come ashore at night to nest on the beach. Return to Best Western Irazu for second night.

Day 3 & 4: ARENAL VOLCANO - Your air conditioned 4 X 4 (Suzuki Vitara II) will be delivered to the hotel the following morning, and you will be on your way to Arenal Volcano, one of the most active in the world. You will stay two nights in a Premium Suite, at the Mountain Paradise.

Day 5 & 6: MONTEVERDE CLOUD FOREST - You will discover one of the richest and most diverse tropical cloud forests in the New World. It is best known as home to the Resplendent Quetzal but also protects hundreds of other birds, mammals and plant species. Whether you prefer comfort, the feeling of being in the middle of a charming cloud forest or genuine family hospitality, the Trapp Family Lodge offers you all of that just in one place. You will spend two nights in a Mountain Suite of the nearest hotel from the famous Monteverde cloud forest reserve.

Day 7 - 9: MANUEL ANTONIO - You will stay three nights at the Hotel Costa Verde. This hotel is located on a coastal rainforest bluff overlooking the Pacific beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepos. Its many amenities make Costa Verde a perfect destination for those seeking adventure travel, ecotourism, sportsfishing or just the tranquility of white sand beaches and magnificent ocean views. Overland transfer from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio, one of the country's most popular national parks because of its unique mix of beach and forest trails. The park also supports 353 species of birds and 138 species of trees a true testament to the area's rich ecological diversity. Its secluded beaches, breathtaking views and dramatic rocky headlands make it one of the most alluring parks in Costa Rica. Costa Verde's thirty acres of untouched land serve as a natural corridor for native wildlife foraging between the National Park and the beach. Among many others, white-faced monkeys, iguanas, three-toed sloths, and a host of native birds, including aracaris, toucans and parrots, can be observed from anywhere on the premises, especially our private, 2 mile nature trail.

Day 10: SAN JOSÉ - Drive back to the Central Valley. The car will be picked up in the afternoon and you’ll spend your last night at the Hotel Irazú.

Day 11: DEPARTURE - Airport transfer for return flight home.
