Day 1 San José & Central Valley
Day 2 Arenal Volcano
This morning you'll be collected by your driver to take the journey north out of San José towards the majestic Volcán Arenal. The journey should take around three to four hours depending on traffic in the capital and road conditions in the more rural areas. The hanging bridges tour this afternoon offers a detailed and unique perspective on the flora and fauna of the tropical primary forest through a series of trails and bridges with a specialist local guide. This will be followed with a soak in the natural hot springs of the area - a wonderful way to finish the day!
Day 3 Arenal Volcano
Today you'll have the opportunity to explore the Arenal Rainforest Reserve. You'll take the Sky Tram, which is a slow-paced 15-minute aerial cable car ride, through rainforest offering endless views along the way, followed by a Canopy Tour, a 3000 metre long, zip-line system that gives you the opportunity to enjoy the rainforest from a different perspective.
Day 4 Arenal Volcano
Today you'll explore Lake Arenal by kayak. Paddle around the shores of the lake, spotting many species of bird including the anhinga, flycatcher and kingfisher, and perhaps hearing or even spotting howler monkeys in the nearby forests.
Day 5 Tamarindo
Day 6 Tamarindo
Like much of Costa Rica you can be as busy as you like here. We've included a Catamaran tour to get you started, but you can do almost anything from surfing lessons, quad biking, zip lining, trekking, cycling, deep sea fishing or wildlife treks.
Day 7 Tamarindo
A day at leisure on the beach. This hotel, situated right on the beachfront, is ideal for just kicking back and relaxing. Stroll along the beach to watch the sunset, relax by the swimming pool, or swim in the sea - the waters are calm here.
