DAY 04: Private Transfer to Arenal, La Fortuna

Arenal Volcano located in La Fortuna is the most iconic volcano in Costa Rica. It is a perfectly coned shaped volcano that was the most active volcano up until 2010. Since July 29, 1968 when Arenal Volcano first erupted and destroyed the town of Tabacón, visitors came to witness the earth rumble and the lava flow from afar. Tourism and attractions in the area flourished. One of the most popular reasons to visit Arenal Volcano (besides all of the adventure activities in the area) are the wonderful volcano heated hot springs that come from the geothermal activity beneath Arenal.

DAY 07: Ocean Kayaking & Snorkeling

Round trip transportation is provided and you will be picked up at your hotel and go to the Quepos pier. You will paddle a kayak for approximately 2 ½ hours, during your nautical journey you will navigate past islands where you can observe uncountable marine birds and their nesting grounds. Half way through your trip, you will stop at a beautiful hidden bay – Biesanz Bay. During the 30 minute stop, you can snorkel on this secluded coastline or just have a rest.

Water visibility depends on the season. Upon returning to the pier, you’ll head back to base camp to enjoy a little conversation over a delicious homemade meal. Kayaks are available for 1 or 2 passengers. Kids must be at least 8 years old to paddle alone. Sea kayaking is much easier than river kayaking; this Manuel Antonio tour does not require previous experience.

DAY 08: Private Transfer from Manuel Antonio to Uvita

Uvita is a small and nestled town in the Puntarenas Province, 17 km further south than Dominical. Its main attraction is the Marina Ballena National Park, a marine reserve that is famous for its migrating pods of humpback whales. Recognizable about this park is a 1 km sand bar that reminds of the shape of a whale tail, a result of converging currents. Uvita is perfect for travelers that are looking for an off-the beaten path holiday as not many tourists are frequenting Uvita´s beaches and the small village gives you a good possibility to involve with locals. Don’t miss a visit to the nearby waterfalls Cascada Verde and the Catarata Pavon which are great for swimming in the crystal clear waters!

DAY 09: Bahia Aventuras Combo Tour

The Boat departs from Punta Uvita Beach and visits the famous Punta Uvita Whale’s Tail, Ballena Island, Tres Hermanas Islets and Ventana Sea Caves. During the tour we search for Humpback Whales (seasonally) and two different species of resident Dolphins. We also visit the coral and rock reefs to snorkel and observe the wonderful marine wildlife of the Ballena Marine Park. While cruising in the boat you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the coastline of Costa Ballena and observe the diversity of shore and pelagic birds nesting and roosting in the Islets of the park. This tour is very popular in Bahia Ballena and highly recommended for all the family visiting this side of the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. Suitable for children over three years of age.

What To Bring

 

The most important things to bring are your travel documents: a valid passport, flight and hotel information, health insurance card and driver’s license (if you plan on renting a car in Costa Rica). We advise you to make three copies of these documents. Put one copy in your carry-on bag, one copy in your suitcase and leave one copy at home.

 

 

Basic Tropical forests, colorful wildlife and spectacular beaches are part of daily life in Costa Rica. The climate varies depending on where you are, so pack accordingly.

 

  1. Prepare for hot, humid summers. Shorts, T-shirts, sundresses, skirts and tank tops in lightweight fabrics should keep you cool. Take a sweater for evenings at a higher elevation.
  2. Bring plenty of sunblock. Also include insect repellent, a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and a swimsuit.
  3. Take rubber-soled sandals or hiking boots for journeys into the rain forests. Flip-flops and sandals are great for resorts and hanging out by the beach.
  4. Pack separate clothes for evenings. Simple dresses are great for women, while men will do well in long shorts and a button-down shirt.
  5. Prepare for cool winters, particularly in the northern regions and at higher elevations. Long pants and long-sleeved shirts are a must, while a fleece jacket or a sweater is advisable.
  6. Take an umbrella if you plan to travel between May and November – Costa Rica’s wettest period.
  7. A rain slicker will come in handy while hiking.
  8. Take an electric converter and adapter.
