Relax on the long sandy beaches of the Caribbean coast for a couple of days before heading off to explore the nature on the backwaters at Tortuguero. Monkeys, toucans, parrots, caiman, and in season, turtles can all be seen here with expert naturalist guides exploring with you by boat in one of Costa Rica's hotspots for wildlife.
Leaving the backwaters you head up to Arenal volcano and relax in the hot springs this evening. In the morning you can take to the exhilarating zip wires, one of which is 700m long above the forest canopy. In the afternoon take a boat across Lake Arenal and climb up to the famous cloudforest of Monteverde where you can discover nocturnal wildlife on a guided night walk.
Another private guided walk the next morning will show you the great diversity of flora and fauna in this montane forest; whilst in the afternoon we give you a different perspective with a high-level walk along the hanging bridges in the canopy layer of the forest. This is a great opportunity for those interested in birds and life in the tree tops!
Your final destination is the arid warm coast of Guanacaste Province and the lively town of Tamarindo where you can spend the rest of your holiday at leisure enjoying the beaches or doing active excursions close by.
