2 minute trip breakdown
At the pre-arranged time, personnel from Costa Rica Dream Travel Corporation will be at the airport, in San Jose, to welcome the participants of the group, give them the trip documentation and transfer them to the Hotel Fleur de Lys in San Jose city.
After check in at the hotel, the participants of the group will have leisure time to enjoy the area.
Wake up with the gorgeous sunshine of the Costa Rican tropical sun, and get ready for a fantastic day. After breakfast and check out of the hotel, our tour guide and transportation will meet the participants of the group at the lobby of the hotel. Once the group is ready, they will depart to La Fortuna area. After check in at the Hotel San Bosco, the participants will change and get ready for the adventure of the Rappel Tour.
You′ll hike to and rappel down six different waterfalls until you get to the grand finale... the biggest waterfall over 210-ft high. The water will splash all around you as you make it to the bottom, feeling incredibly exhilarated. It′s then a short 10-minute walk up the side of the canyon to where your tropical fruit and water await you and then you get treated to a delicious home-cooked lunch.
After this great adventure, it is time to return to the hotel and have the freedom to do whatever you'd like the rest of the day.
After breakfast at the hotel, you will be ready to enjoy the adventures of the white water rafting at Sarapiqui River. Set in the lowlands of the rainforest, with breathtaking views of tropical birds and lush jungle landscapes this river is perfect for all levels of paddlers. The crystal clear waters and action packed class II & III rapids will ensure an unforgettable experience for every rafting enthusiast.
This trip begins in La Fortuna where our expert guide will pick you up in private transportation from your hotel and you will travel for 1 ½ hours to arrive to the River. At the river and after fitting all of your equipment, we will give you a safety orientation speech and paddle practice before the adventure begins. Once on the river, participants will paddle for 2 ½ hours along the 14 Km stretch with a stop for fruit half way down the river to restore your energy for the latter half of the paddle.
At the end of the river portion your private transportation will be waiting for you and will take you to Flow operation center in Sarapiqui. There you will be able to change in private facilities and get ready for a Costa Rican buffet style lunch.
After lunch, you will return to the Hotel San Bosco in Arenal and have the rest of the night to do whatever you want.
After breakfast and checking out of the hotel, the participants will enjoy a visit to the Hanging Bridges. Arenal Hanging Bridges is a new tourism attraction in La Fortuna, visitors who love nature can enjoy 15 bridges from 5 to 100 meters long, friendly design along 3km rain forest circuit of interpretive trails built with paving blocks to prevent slipping. They were designed by structural engineers with the most demanding safety margins in the world.
Guided by a naturalist, who through the natural history will open for you the doors of a fascinating and colorful Tropical Rain Forest world. The imposing vistas of the Volcano from the hanging bridges over the forest, make a perfect combination for an unforgettable experience.
Once finished with this exciting hike, the participants will head to the beach.
After check in at the Hotel Wyndham Tamarindo, the group will have time to relax and enjoy everything that the coast has to offer.
Beach day baby! Nothing is planned but there are plenty of optional activities available (snorkeling, ATV riding, etc.) that can easily be booked upon arriving. One popular excursion is the sunset sailing tour.
Keep in mind this is totally optional:
Silently glide along Costa Rica’s Gold Coast while passing some of Guanacaste’s exotic bays, white sand beaches, tropical jungles and rain forest. Enjoy a cold tropical drink prepared and served to you by the bilingual staff. Gaze off the bow and scan the seas for dolphins, sea turtles, flying fish or even a breaching whale. Stop in a tranquil bay, drop anchor and frolic in the blue Pacific. Snorkel in the bay or run down the deserted white sand beach while the ever-helpful crew prepares a feast of fruit, chips, dips, ceviche and salad bridges over the forest make a perfect combination for an unforgettable experience.
Also you can totally just lie on the beach and eat hot dogs all day.
Another day of freedom at the beach!
Later in the day, you'll be driven back to San Jose city and staying at the Hotel Fleur de Lys once again for your last night in Costa Rica.
It’s time to say goodbye to Costa Rica, at the pre-arranged time and according to your flight schedule you will be transferred from the hotel to the International Airport in San Jose to take you flight back home.
If you want to cry, that's ok. It's actually encouraged. Ok I lied it's actually more than encouraged. It's a very little known fact but if you spend more than five days in Costa Rica and don't cry upon leaving, you get detained at the airport until you apologize for not having the emotional capacity needed to visit this beautiful country. So just a heads up.
