Arrival in San José. Meet and greet at the airport and transfer to your hotel. Beginning of your Costa Rica Adventure!
(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. This is one of the prime Costa Rica Adventures. After this tour transfer to the Arenal Volcano area. Rest of the afternoon at leisure.
(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 rainforest 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
Visit afterward 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 mineral 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 in your Costa Rica Adventures collection.
(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.
(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).
