Day One

• Welcome dinner

Tropical Paradise - Costa Ricans have a lot to

smile about - secluded palm-sheltered beaches,

lush rainforests, lava-shooting volcanoes, tropical

rain and cloud forests, an abundance of wildlife,

fine coffee and a peaceful society. Discover the

best of Costa Rica!

San José - Our journey begins in the historic capital

of San José at a delightful casino hotel. There

is time for a swim or massage before dinner as our

busy schedule flows into Costa Rica’s mystical

tropical paradise.

Poás Volcano - Enroute from San José to the La

Fortuna area, visit Poás Volcano, one of the most

spectacular volcanoes in Costa Rica. Poás has a

long history of large eruptions, first producing a

cloud of hot ash five miles high back in 1910.

Look down from its mile-wide rim to a gigantic

boiling cauldron of steaming geysers. Then continue

to the Doka Coffee Estate for a tour followed

by lunch.

Arenal - Room with a View -A volcano in the

front yard? That’s what the village of La Fortuna

boasts. We can see its awe-inspiring cone first

thing in the morning and the last thing at night,

as our room has a view of the Arenal Volcano. In

addition to the volcano, the area is rich in natural

wonders. On our arrival day, we see hot springs

and beautiful waterfalls, hike easy, fragrant trails,

swim or just dangle our feet in shady pools fed by

waterfalls and surrounded with lush, tropical

greenery. The village of La Fortuna is ringed by

mountains and inhabited by friendly folk whose

little shops may offer the perfect memento.

There are few places on earth where one can

observe an active volcano, and we will spend a

day near Arenal Volcano, one of the most active

volcanoes in the Americas. Since it erupted 400

years ago, it has continued to light up the night

sky. From our observation point, we feel the

ground tremble and see smoke that billows from

the earth’s molten core rise to join the clouds.

After a day of adventure, relax in the springs at

the hotel followed by dinner with lovely views of

the resort’s hot springs, lush tropical gardens and

Arenal Volcano. While in La Fortuna, we enjoy a

full day excursion to Caño Negro National

Wildlife Refuge, a remote “everglades” type of

wetlands teeming in different species of flora,

fauna and birdlife. This is truly a unique experience,

showcasing the natural beauty of Costa


Jungle Crocodile Safari – We take a boat trip on

the Tarcoles river located near Carara National Rain

Forest Park. This adventure combines nature with

the breathtaking experience of viewing American

crocodiles at near proximities. As our boat ride

takes us inside the mangrove canals and along the

Tarcoles River, we have the opportunity to spot

many different species of birds amongst the lush


All-inclusive Hilton Puntarenas - Our resort for

the next three nights is the Hilton Puntarenas situated

on the Pacific Ocean. The resort is ideally

located on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica,

just 90 minutes from San José. It includes access to

the beach as well as four pools within the property.

The hotel has many restaurants and bars where we

can enjoy included meals, alcoholic beverages, soft

drinks and juices.

Arenal Volcano

Spend a day at leisure - Relax on the beach, stroll

through the forest, join new companions on an

optional excursion or zip line adventure. There

will be time to swim, snooze in the sun, snorkel or

enjoy magical sunsets. Next morning our included

tour visits nearby Manuel Antonio National Park,

the smallest of the parks in Costa Rica but one of

the most popular. The park’s forest, mangroves,

lagoons and beach vegetation support 1,009 species

of mammals and 184 species of birds, with

migrants bringing the bird species to some 270.

Among the inhabitants that can be easily seen are

sloths, iguanas, agoutis, armadillos, coatimundis,

raccoons and the adorable squirrel monkey.

As our tropical get-away comes to an end, we

return home with fond memories of the beauty of

Costa Rica and the warm hospitality of its people.
