EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

The Central American country of Costa Rica is a lush paradise of rainforests, beaches, waterfalls, and river valleys, with small-to-midsize cities and five-star resorts built within the naturally stunning landscape. Though not an island, the country is home to nearly 800 miles of coastline (with the warm Pacific Ocean on one side and the blue Caribbean Sea on the other), perfect for long days of swimming, surfing, or lounging on shore.

Peak travel season in Costa Rica is December through April, though there’s really no bad time to visit. Travelers come year-round for thrilling eco-adventures, luxurious spa resort getaways, and to experience the laid back, “pura vida” lifestyle the country is known for. 

This unique getaway to Costa Rica combines all of that. Over twelve days, you’ll experience exciting outdoor adventures in stunning rainforests and national parks, play and relax on golden-sand beaches, immerse yourself in local indigenous culture, and enjoy deluxe accommodations at some of the country’s most beautiful and luxurious resorts. Each resort features its own high-end touches and comforts of home, such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and cozy bedding, as well as extras such as terraces and balconies, onsite spa services, pools, and minibars.

You’ll begin your trip in the vibrant capital of San José, where you’ll be met at the airport and driven to Hotel Grano de Oro, a boutique luxury hotel located in a renovated tropical Victorian mansion in the heart of the city. Here, you can settle in for the evening and enjoy the comfort of your accommodations and the hotel’s many amenities—gourmet restaurant and wine cellar, fitness center, specialty gift shop, and rooftop sundeck with hot tubs—or head out to see the sights. 

Heavily influenced by European culture, San José is filled with architecturally beautiful historic buildings, and is home to a thriving arts, food, and entertainment scene. Whether you choose to check out the theaters, markets, and museums in the area or simply stroll the neighborhood around the hotel, a night in San Jose is a great way to kick off your vacation.

From San José, you’ll travel to the lovely town of Tortuguero where you’ll explore Tortuguero National Park and spend two nights at the luxurious Manatus Lodge, surrounded by a lush wildlife sanctuary and water canals. Dine at the hotel’s Ara Macaw Restaurant, relax in your private bungalow, and enjoy guided tours of the park where you’ll look for wildlife and learn about the long list of protected plants and animals in the area, including green macaws, jaguars, and several species of sea turtle.

From Tortuguero, you’ll travel to Turrialba for exhilarating rafting trips and guided hikes in Costa Rica’s most impressive primary rain forests. There, you’ll also visit a Cabécar Indian rancho (thatched house) and meet with the son of a local shaman. You’ll learn more about the history and culture of the Cabécar Indians—Costa Rica’s largest indigenous group—and how their remote location has helped them maintain their customs and language.

Next you’ll journey 3.5 hours by raft to the Arenal Volcano area, viewing spectacular scenery and experiencing grade III to IV rapids on the way to your deluxe accommodations at the award-winning Arenal Nayara Hotel & Gardens. During your stay, you’ll have privately guided tours of Arenal Volcano National Park, boat rides on the lake, and a trip to Sky Adventures, a rainforest adventure park with ziplines, hanging bridges, and more.

Finally, you’ll spend three relaxing nights by the ocean at the Four Seasons Costa Rica Resort on the Papagayo Peninsula in coastal Guanacaste. Enjoy the golden sand beaches, spa treatments, swimming pools, and other fabulous resort amenities or get out and explore the area with snorkeling trips, scuba diving, golf, and more. 

In all, you’ll have 12 days of incredible adventures spanning different regions and diverse landscapes throughout this beautiful country. Best of all, with most meals and beverages included, and private transportation, park fees, and gratuities arranged for you in advance, you can relax and enjoy each unforgettable day, knowing that everything is taken care of.
