An eco-adventure through magnificent Costa Rica, seeing rainforest, volcanoes and beaches - includes tours and travel

Day 1: UK - San José

On arrival, a representative will meet you as you exit the terminal and transfer you to your hotel to check in. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 2: San José

Today you'll go on a fascinating cultural tour, driving through the country's largest coffee and sugar cane plantations in Doka and learning about how the national coffee tastes so good. It's then onto Grecia to see its famous metal church and lastly Sarchi’s arts and crafts factories, particularly known for their colourful oxcarts. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 3: San José - Sarapiquí

You'll be taken on a rafting adventure today on Sarapiquí River, in the heart of blooming rainforest. If this isn't your style, you can go on a chocolate tour at Tirimbina Biological Reserve instead. On your way to either, admire the mesmerising scenery while crossing Braulio Carrillo National Park's cloud forest. After the day's activity, check into your rainforest hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure. (Meals: breakfast, lunch)

Day 4: Sarapiquí

Today you can opt to join one of three available tours - nature walk, zip lining or horseback riding. After this scenic excursion, spend the afternoon as you please. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 5: Sarapiquí - La Fortuna / Arenal Volcano

This morning you'll drive just over an hour to La Fortuna, right next to Arenal Volcano, where you’ll check into your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure. You might want to explore the area's hot springs for a rejuvenating dip. At 5,437 feet, Arenal Volcano towers above the green hilly landscape around its base. While currently 'resting', it's been Costa Rica's most active volcano for the past four decades. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 6: La Fortuna / Arenal Volcano


Head off on an eye-popping guided walk through the treetops this morning, over the Sky Walk hanging bridges. You'll see a spectacular panorama of the volcano and lake from the adventure centre balcony. Spend the rest of the day relaxing or making the most of the time to do another half-day excursion. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 7: La Fortuna - San José

After a chilled morning, you'll return to the capital city in the afternoon to spend the rest of your Costa Rican time as you wish. Perhaps try to fit in a last plate of wholesome, tummy-warming gallo pinto at a local restaurant for lunch or dinner. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 8: San José - UK

The time has come to wave farewell to this exceedingly friendly and beautiful Central American peacekeeper. After breakfast (flight schedule permitting), you'll head to the airport to fly home with countless memories.
