Camino Travel has come up with this itinerary that can be used as the first or last leg of your visit to Costa Rica; then again, you can also include it in the middle!
Costa Rica's "Valle Central" and surrounding highlands form the cultural and geographical base of the country. It consists of a fertile upland basin inhabited by approximately two-thirds of the country's population. It is also the home of the four most important cities in the country: San Jose (Costa Rica’s capital) and the provincial capitals of Cartago, Heredia and Alajuela, each with its own character and sense of identity. All these together make up the most economically productive region of the country.
The itinerary would go as follows:
When you arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport, you will be greeted by a Camino Travel agent. We will assist you with your luggage and take you to your San José hotel.
You can spend the day at your leisure, taking part in any activities that catch your interest, such as visiting the National Theatre and museums (Gold Museum, Jade Museum, National Museum, etc.), white water rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, rain and cloud forest hiking and mountain biking, as well as visits to butterfly farms, botanical gardens, picturesque towns and coffee plantations. Besides all this, the city also provides a good opportunity for shopping, sightseeing and enjoying nightlife.
Depending on what you wish to do next on your itinerary, you can spend the morning at your leisure or continue your journey to another selected destination.
