Itinerary

Day 1 - ARENAL VOLCANO

Welcome to Costa Rica! Upon arrival at Liberia Airport, transfer to the Arenal Volcano area (an approximate 3-hour drive.) Along the way, we’ll cross the cowboy plains of the Guanacaste Province and admire the pristine shoreline, beautiful mountain ranges, and volcanoes. The journey continues with the beautiful scenery of the Arenal Lake and its surrounding natural landscapes and country villages. Overnight at your selected hotel in the Arenal area.

Day 2 - ARENAL VOLCANO

Enjoy a full-day tour discovering the natural wonders of the northern wetlands. Join in a floating safari along the Río Frío and the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge that form a biological wetlands site, one of Costa Rica's richest areas of natural diversity. While paddling along, experienced guides will teach you about the different species you may encounter - monkeys, caimans, iguanas, crocodiles, sloths, and turtles. This network of languid lagoons is also a birding wonderland. (B,L)

Day 3 - ARENAL VOLCANO

Day at leisure to explore the area at your own pace. We highly recommend a visit to the Arenal Volcano National Park (optional excursion), one of the top destinations for travelers in Costa Rica. While the volcano is still alive and spews smoke, it entered into an indeterminate resting phase in 2010. Other attractions are the Venado Caves and La Fortuna Waterfall and many activities such as whitewater rafting, rainforest hikes, hot springs, canopy zip-lining, and more! (B)

Day 4 - ARENAL VOLCANO I GUANACASTE

After breakfast, depart Arenal for the Guanacaste area that forms part of Costa Rica’s North Pacific Region, where hundreds of pristine beaches await you! Guanacaste draws visitors with its vast bird watching, amazing horseback riding, excellent surfing, and superb snorkeling. Also, great mountain lake windsurfing, ATV tours, and a bustling nightlife attract the more adventurous. Enjoy the next 4 nights at your selected all-inclusive resort. (B,D)
