Day 01: Arrival to San José. Private Transfer to your hotel at Arenal Volcano

Welcome to Costa Rica! Once you have passed immigration and customs and exited the airport doors, you will meet one of our travel representatives with a sign reading your name. He will take you to your hotel in Arenal and give you your welcome kit.

Arenal Volcano located in La Fortuna, is the most iconic volcano in Costa Rica. It’s perfectly coned shaped volcano was the most active volcano up until 2010. On July 29, 1968 when the Arenal Volcano first erupted, it caused massive damages and destroyed the town of Tabacon. Since then tourism and attractions in the area have flourished because visitors now come to feel the earth rumble, to enjoy the volcanic hot springs,  and to watch the lava flow from afar.

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.

 

  • 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.
  • Bring plenty of sunblock. Also include insect repellent, a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and a swimsuit.
