Days 3-5


  • Sunrise wildlife tour to witness the jungle waking up around you.
  • Cruise through the diverse habitats of the Tortuguero National Park.
  • Add a guided evening turtle nesting tour if traveling between July-September.

Wake up and fall asleep to the sounds of the pristine natural surroundings of Tortuguero. One of Costa Rica’s most diverse National Parks in Costa Rica, you’ll be spotting sloths and monkeys in the high trees of the rainforests and crocodiles as you explore the wide canals. The long stretch of Tortuguero’s Caribbean coastline is also one of the most important turtle breeding sites in the world.

Days 5-7


  • Spot wildlife high up in Arenal’s canopy on the Hanging Gardens tour.
  • Take time out from all the adventure and relax in natural hot springs.
  • Optional activities include horseback riding, a twilight nature walk & more.

As one of the most diverse wildlife destinations in the world, you’re never too far from experiencing Costa Rica’s natural beauty in Arenal. Although the Arenal Volcano is no longer spewing out hot lava there is plenty to do in the Arenal Volcano National Park from crossing hanging bridges through the canopy where you’ll be surrounded by playful monkeys and colorful, tropical birds to unwinding in some of the country’s best natural hot springs.

Days 7-9


  • Stunning boat ride across Lake Arenal on the way to Monteverde.
  • Fly through the air on some of Costa Rica’s longest zip lines.
  • Optional open-air gondola ride through Monteverde’s Cloud Forest.

As the jewel in the crown of the world’s cloud forest reserves, the immense biodiversity of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is spell-binding with a stunning display of the most sought-after flora and fauna in Costa Rica. Rise up through the treetops and explore the extensive canopy walkways and suspension bridges before taking one of Costa Rica’s longest and most exhilarating zip-lines back to ground level.

Days 9-11


  • Explore the Rincon de la Vieja National Park on foot or zip-lining through the canopy.
  • Saddle up with sabaneros (Costa Rican cowboys) on a horseback riding tour.
  • Relax in natural volcanic mud pools and thermal springs.

Home to Costa Rica’s cowboys, you’ll be saddling up and screaming “yeehaw” in no time at all! Rincon de la Vieja has a stunning landscape with warm natural springs, volcanoes and wide open pastures to explore as well as learn about the unique sabanero history and culture.

Days 11-14


  • Paddle through Tamarindo’s verdant mangroves and estuary.
  • Traveling between November-February? Ask about adding a turtle nesting tour!
  • Optional activities include horseback riding, surfing lessons and more.

White sand, swaying palm trees, secluded beaches and breathtaking sunsets…welcome to Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast paradise! As well as having heavenly beaches, Tamarindo is one of the world’s most important turtle nesting sites for the endangered Leatherback turtle. If traveling between November and February, a moonlight tour to this protecting nesting site is a must! If not, then there is more than enough wildlife to spot when kayaking through the Tamarindo Mangrove and Estuary Nature Reserve.
