Detailed Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival in San José. Meet and greet at the airport and transfer to your hotel.

Day 2

(B, L) Early morning you will be picked up the Pacuare Whitewater Rafting Tour (class III-IV). The crisp clear water of the Pacuare, Latin America’s first Wild and Scenic River, offers some of the finest whitewater in the world, providing the adventurous rafter with a ride of great natural beauty. After this tour transfer to the Arenal Volcano area. Rest of the afternoon at leisure.

Day 3

(B,L,D) Enjoy a full adventure day beginning with a visit to the hanging bridges where we will do a walk in the forest from the ground to the treetops. Visitors who love nature will enjoy 15 bridges from 5 to 100 meters long, designed along 3 km of rain forest in a circuit of interpretive trails built with paving blocks to prevent slipping. Continue to La Fortuna Waterfall where we will descend to a challenging hike through the dense rainforest to the natural blue pool into which the waterfall pours, where you can take a delightful swim. Visit afterwards the Arenal Volcano National park for a short hike in one of the trails close to the volcano area. This super active day ends at the hot springs, where you will comfort yourself at hot pools set amongst ornate gardens.  The minerals waters, running at a soothing temperature of 39° C (102 F), flow through exotic tropical gardens, forming cascades and pools…. the perfect setting for an unforgettable experience.

Day 4

(B) After breakfast at the hotel, you will be picked up for the bus-boat-bus transfer from Arenal to Monteverde. You will travel through a very scenic and safe trail along the Arenal Lake where you’ll get several glimpses of the famous and very active Arenal Volcano and ride beside lush and beautiful rainforest – try and spot toucans, Montezuma Oropendolas, sloths, monkeys, the elusive “paca” and other tropical creatures.  Upon arrival in Monteverde check in at the hotel and rest of the day at leisure.

Day 5

(B) Visit in the morning the Sky Adventures Park, where you will enjoy the Sky Walk (a complex system of suspended bridges, platforms and paths), the Sky Tram (aerial tram).  And the Sky Trek (system of trails, canopy platforms, one treetop platform, one suspension bridge and ziplines built within the cloud forest). This tour offers the opportunity to experience the cloud forest from a different point of view than other tours available in this area.  Transfer back to the hotel after the tour.
