SUGGESTED ITINERARY

Day 1. Arrive San José (-/-/-)

Welcome to San José, Costa Rica. Meet your driver and transfer to your hotel. Explore the city and its charms, its theatres, museums, shopping, or just enjoy a coffee while watching the daily life of the "Ticos". 

Day 2. San José - Arenal Volcano (B/-/-)

Breakfast at the hotel. Awaiting you in the Northern Plains is the impressive Arenal Volcano, a natural wonder offering you the chance to witness the cone-shaped crater. Along the way there, you will see various agricultural and ornamental plantations and cattle ranches, until you reach the town of La Fortuna. The town is worth visiting to walk around and to have lunch or dinner.  Your hotel is strategically located to appreciate the Volcano.

Day 3. Arenal Volcano (B/-/-)

Breakfast at the hotel. The resorts with hot springs and spas are one of the biggest attractions to enjoy in this region.

You will be amazed by the area’s diversity and richness of nature, walking along the numerous trails in either reserve. In the higher parts of the forest, there is what is called a “natural Elfin Forest” (the climate is such that the tallest trees do not exceed 10 metres). There are many activities in the area to complement your visit: adventure zip line tours, hanging bridges, hummingbird gardens, butterfly gardens, a Serpentarium (one of the best in the country), a nocturnal wildlife tour, horseback riding, a cheese tour (cheeses made in the town are the best in Costa Rica), etc.
