Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival & Escape to Monteverde

Meet your bilingual driver at the airport and jump in a private van that will whisk you away on a three-hour journey through Costa Rica's rolling hills and clouds to your hotel at the town of Santa Elena.

Overnight: Monteverde
Meals: None

Day 2: Swinging Through the Trees & Exploring the Treetops of the Cloud Forest at 100 Percent Aventura

For those seeking adrenaline rushes high in the mountains of Monteverde only!

Fly like an eagle out across a valley over the rainforest on the Superman cables. Guests line up and wait while the guide straps in the next superhero; giggling with anticipation as he or she soars out of sight. Try not to think about anything, especially not the bridge gently swaying in the breeze. Thankfully, the guides are there to take pity on you by speedily, strapping you in and dropping your feet (sometimes with a helping hand) before you have the chance to second-guess this misadventure at the 130-foot Mega Tarzan swing.

100% Aventura Zip Line & Hanging Bridges - the longest zip line in Latin America
- 9 regular Zip Line
- 2 Superman Ziplines (which includes the longest zip line in Latin America)
- 1 hammock bridge
- 1 rappel
- 1 Mega Tarzan Swing

Explore the different layers of the rainforest on a treetop loop; a trail meandering 1.5 miles through the cloud forest over eight different suspension bridges ranging from 150 to more than 500 feet long; some reaching heights of 180 feet above the forest floor. Standing on the bridges, you have the opportunity to look inside the canopies of some cloud forest's tallest trees – a unique habitat for thousands of species plants and home to monkeys, coatis, snakes and frogs. The trail is also one of the best places in Monteverde to spot three-wattled bellbirds and the resplendent quetzal: a brilliant turquoise bird with a red breast and a mohawk.

Overnight: Monteverde
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3: Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve Nature Walk & Escape to Arenal & Hot Springs

Clouds curl over the continental divide drifting through the forest creating one of the most unique habitats on the face of the earth. Inside the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, three-hundred-year-old trees twist toward the skies, weighed down with layers of bromeliads and moss in a spectacular scene at the heart of every childhood fantasy; one where at every moment you expect a fairy to pop out from a hollowed log.

Take in all the views of Arenal Volcano and Cerro Chato as you cross Lake Arenal by boat on your way to Arenal.

Enjoy hot springs fed by Arenal Volcano at your hotel!

Overnight: Arenal
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4: Explore Espadilla Beach & Biesanz Cove

Traverse the town of Quepos, get caught up in the local flavors by eating at a soda. Walk along the waterfront of Espadilla beach with awesome views of the coastline in the afternoon. Hike and climb to Biesanz Beach's hidden cove where the tropical rainforest camouflages its cream-colored sand.

Overnight: Manuel Antonio

Day 5: Manuel Antonio National Park Guided Walk

Grab a towel, a pair of binoculars and some hiking shoes and discover Manuel Antonio National Park on a guided nature walk and end it playing in the waves; you'll want to cover as much ground as you can to explore the park's beaches, secondary and primary rainforests, mangroves, marshlands and rocky islands. Manuel Antonio Beach, the park's most popular destination, is a stunning tropical cove featuring white sands, and crystal blue waters.

Overnight: Manuel Antonio
