Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • When you arrive in San José you will be met and driven to your hotel in the hills near the city to relax and recover from the flight by the pool.

  • Early in the morning you will be collected via a shared transfer and driven through the Braulio Carrilo National Park, stopping for breakfast soon after and making your way over to the Caribbean coast. Part of the journey to your lodge takes you down the famous canals leading to Tortuguero National Park and this will be your first opportunity to spot wildlife in the water and along the treeline. You will have a group excursion this afternoon.

  • As part of your stay there are various shared tours and excursions included, mainly on the search for various wildlife within the National Park and the surrounding waterways.

  • You will get a different view of the park today as you board a light aircraft to fly to the town of La Fortuna, next to the Arenal Volcano. Your private driver will be there to meet you in Arenal and you will have the rest of the day at leisure.

  • This morning you will enjoy a shared excursion to the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge.

  • Your hanging bridges tour 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.

  • To finish the trip we've suggested a couple of days at Nosara beach. This isn't just a beautiful stretch of sand, it is also a great place for surfing, paddle boarding, horse riding, fishing and yoga.

  • Time to enjoy the beach.

  • At leisure.

  • Saying goodbye to it all your driver will take you to San José airport to start your journey home.

Accommodation options
