Day 02: Bus & Boat transfer to Tortuguero. Or: Private transfer to Juan Santamaría International Airport and then Domestic flight to Tortuguero.

Facing the Caribbean Sea and the Tortuguero River is one of Costa Rica’s main treasures. Its name, Tortuguero, meaning “place of turtles” is renowned for its yearly arrival of 4 different turtle species that nest on its beaches. To get to your destination hotel we will provide a bus transfer from San Jose to one of the important ports of the canals.  Once at the canals you may board a small motor boat that will traverse the canals to your chosen hotel. The approximate time of travel from San Jose to your hotel will be 5 hours, including the land and boat transfers.

Day 04: Boat & bus transfer to Guapiles. Pick up rental car and self-drive or Private transfer to Puerto Viejo.

Where lush thick jungles meet the Caribbean seas, soft caramel colored sands caress your body and the multicultural vibe of Jamaican and Europeans alike make Puerto Viejo the go to destination for a laid back vacation.  Puerto Viejo is not for everyone as it is still considered off the beaten track.  However, this unique Caribbean town is authentic without golf courses, marinas, country clubs, swimming pools or air conditioned rooms common on the North Pacific coast of Costa Rica. This Caribbean region instead offers the exotic Cahuita National Park, Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife refuge, hidden beaches, rugged nightlife and delightful restaurants.

Day 05: Free day in Puerto Viejo.

From renting a local banana bike to cycling from one beach to another through sandy trails to activities such as SUP (stand up paddle boarding), surfing, a visit to the sloth sanctuary or the jaguar rescue center are all but a few of the exciting adventures you may experience in Puerto Viejo.

Day 06: Self Drive or private transfer to Arenal Volcano.

Arenal Volcano located in La Fortuna, Arenal is the most iconic volcano in Costa Rica. Its perfectly coned shaped volcano was the most active volcano up until 2010. Since July 29, 1968 when Arenal Volcano first erupted, caused massive damage and destroyed the town of Tabacon, 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.

 

Arenal is great to visit at any time of year since there is no distinct weather pattern in this area.  There is always a chance of rain in this area, but that’s what keeps it green & lush all year round.

Its destination offers upscale accommodations as well as more economic lodging.  The beach is known worldwide as a surfing destination but also offers neighboring beaches that are great for walks and exploring, such as Playa Grande, Playa Conchal or Playa Langosta. The golden sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets and upbeat nightlife, cafes and restaurants are an attraction to this area.

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. Bring plenty of sunblock. Also include insect repellent, a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and a swimsuit.
  2. 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. Pack separate clothes for evenings. Simple dresses are great for women, while men will do well in long shorts and a button-down shirt.
  3. 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.
  4. Take an umbrella if you plan to travel between May and November – Costa Rica’s wettest period.
  5. A rain slicker will come in handy while hiking.
  6. Take an electric converter and adapter.
