Time for your Costa Rican adventure! Fly into San Jose International Airport, and your group leader will be there to collect you and take you back to our start hotel. Get yourself settled in or explore the area before getting ready for your first night in San Jose, Costa Rica! In the evening, head out for dinner and drinks with your new travel buddies in this lively, bustling city.
In the morning, we'll leave San Jose and travel a couple hours to Coope San Juan - a rural village where we'll experience the local culture and way of life. First, we'll settle into our homestay accommodation in the village, and after a cooking demonstration, we head out to explore the area by bike. Later on, we'll play games with the community and finish the night off sitting around the bonfire.
After breakfast, we'll say goodbye to the friendly locals of Coope San Juan, pack up and head to the adventure capital of Costa Rica - La Fortuna! Once settled in, we spend the afternoon relaxing at stunning volcanic hot springs. With waterslides, swim-up bars, waterfalls and more, it is easy to understand why the hot springs are one of the main highlights of La Fortuna.
Another day of adventure in La Fortuna! Our group leader will take our group down to the local swimming hole, EL Salto near town. For those who are craving a bit of adventure, there are plenty of optional activities to do here! Canyoneering, whitewater rafting, volcano hikes, ATVing- you name it! We love La Fortuna so much, we voted it as our number 1 thing to do in Costa Rica - check out our full list of things to do in Costa Rica here.
We leave La Fortuna behind and head off on a scenic drive to Monteverde. We'll then hop on a boat to transfer across a lake with a stunning view of Arenal Volcano! This afternoon we check out the town before experiencing the best of Costa Rica's wildlife on a night safari. From sloths to armadillos, frogs to snakes, you won't be disappointed with Costa Rica's amazing wildlife.
Get yourself pumped as we head out this morning to zip line through Monteverde's canopy of the cloud forest. An unforgettable experience with the most breathtaking views! This afternoon, take some much-needed rest after your adrenaline-fueled morning before heading out for dinner and drinks with the group.
Get your swimwear ready as we leave Monteverde and head off to the beautiful beachside town of Santa Teresa. We'll arrive late afternoon to check into our accommodation, explore the beach, have a dip in the sea, and head out to enjoy the stunning sunset with the group.
Enjoy a lie-in before heading out to relax on Santa Teresa beach, have a dip in the sea or have a go at a surf lesson if you fancy. Later we'll finish the day with a sunset yoga class, then head out for dinner with the group.
Today we'll check out the town of Montezuma and its waterfalls for a refreshing dip in the sea before heading into town for a spot of lunch. After lunch, we'll head to a nearby beach on Cabuya Island & take a walk at low tide to see the cemetery on the island. We'll end the day by heading back to Santa Teresa to getting ready for a farewell dinner with your group.
It's time to say your goodbye's as it's checkout day today. Your group leader will help you with your onward travel wherever you are going. Adios amigos!
