Additional Information

Our Rainforest and Beach Adventure Vacation Package has been designed for those travelers who wish to visit beautiful Costa Rica and do many adventure activities, but don’t have a lot of vacation time or a large budget. This itinerary combines the excitement of doing lots of adventure activities (including the best white water rafting of the country at the Pacuare River); admire the nature of Costa Rica, do lots of sightseeing and visit 2 of the most popular destinations of our country.

This vacation itinerary starts by arriving to San Jose and resting on that day, so you can start fresh and with lots of energy on the following morning when the adventure activities begin. On day 2 you would pack all your stuff and travel to the Arenal Volcano area, the most popular touristic region of Costa Rica, where you would participate of an intense adventure combo that includes zip lining in the rainforest, a 50 meter rappel line, a white water tubing tour on the Arenal River and a short horseback riding tour at the base of the impressive Arenal Volcano.  At the end of all of these adventures we would take you to relax at Paradise Hot Springs and Gardens, for you to rest and recover at the thermal mineral waters. The accommodation we’ve chosen in Arenal is the “Secreto La Fortuna” Hotel, a modest-but comfortable lodging option with a great location, right in the Town of La Fortuna which is also one of the attractions of the area and at walking distance to several restaurants, shops, grocery stores and the beautiful main square. If you would prefer to upgrade your accommodation just let us know and we’ll be more than happy to do the arrangements. Here in Arenal you would also have the 3rd day of your vacation free for you to rest or explore a little more of the area.

On the 4th day of your vacation you would pack your stuff and we will take you to the beautiful beaches of Puerto Viejo de Limon. On the way there you would have a real adrenaline rush by doing white water rafting at the Pacuare River, considered as one of the 5 best rivers in the world for this activity and definitely the best in all Costa Rica. The views while doing this tour are impressive, definitely the best views you would get on any tour in our country. The huge mountains surrounding the river and lush rainforest jungles will add-on to the great experience of this rafting trip. This tour is also very long, because you would be 4 hours approx. on the river; most rafting tours here last about 1.5 to 2 hours at the most. The level of rafting at Pacuare is 3-4, which is the most intense offered in Costa Rica for commercial rafting. Once you arrive at Puerto Viejo your accommodation would be at the Azania Bungalows Hotel, which is located just steps from the beautiful Cocles Beach. Azania Bungalows is a rustic lodging option surrounded by nature with a great location, at walking distance to restaurants, grocery store and the beach. If you would prefer to upgrade your accommodation here just let us know and we’ll be happy to do the proper arrangements.   

The following day of your vacation is for you to rest from all the excitement of the rafting trip and the transfer done on day 4, as well as for you to enjoy of the beautiful Cocles Beach and the hotel’s amenities.

On the 6th day of your vacation you will participate of surfing lessons. The beach to do the lessons will depend on the conditions and the time of the year; your instructor will take you to the best spot to learn to surf, which could be “Playa Negra”, “Puerto Viejo” or even Cocles Beach. You would be back at your hotel before noon, we would need you to do the check-out at 12 p.m.; leave your luggage at the reception (the hotel’s staff will be happy to store it for you), and then enjoy of the beach on your own until 3 p.m. when your transport is scheduled, that way you can enjoy of the beach for a few more hours before going to the City of San Jose. At 3 p.m. your transport will pick you up to take you to the Country Inn & Suites Hotel near the San Jose International Airport, where we will take you the next day for your returning flight home.
