Detailed Description

Enjoy the excitement of a mother-daughter exploration of Costa Rica during your 8-day tour bound for the cloud forests and sandy Pacific shores, volcanic slopes and pristine valleys inside one of the most biodiverse destinations in the world. The marvels of Costa Rica emanate from the spirit of Pura Vida, the “pure life,” a term exemplifying the joy of treasuring the simple beauty of life and an ever-present optimistic perspective. Nestled between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and prospering from the ecological spectacles scattered through the preserved rainforests, beaches, mangroves, and volcanoes, nature brushes against cities and villages with effortless cohabitation bringing sightings of toucans and quetzal, jaguar and howler monkeys amid the enchanting natural splendor.

Your mother-daughter tour of Costa Rica begins with your arrival at San Jose’s Juan Santamaria International Airport. With three nights in Arenal, the adventurous pleasures of Costa Rica combine with the comforts of resorts harnessing warm waters of the natural geothermal activity. The remarkable valleys and slopes beneath Arenal Volcano provide soils rich in minerals perfect for growing tropical crops and treetops ripe with wildlife life sloths, harpy eagles, and white-faced capuchin monkeys. Whitewater rafting excursions head down to the Toro, Balsa, or Peñas Blancas rivers while cowboys lead small groups on horseback through the remaining plantations. The region is celebrated for its zip-lining adventures through the forest canopy, hikes to breathtaking waterfalls with swimming holes, and the relaxing spa treatments utilizing the temperatures of the thermal waters rich in natural minerals.

Two days in Monteverde then embrace the different ecosystems of Costa Rica, taking you from the tropical climate of the valley along the edges of Arenal Volcano to the cooler region of the Cloud Forest ecosystem. The distinctive region offers a new, exciting view of the flora and fauna of the country along the sky bridge walkway offering better possible sightings with up to 90 percent of all organisms in the rainforest living in the canopy. The unique characteristics of the landscape allow crops like chocolate and coffee to thrive making sampling the South American yields a new, vibrant experience. Traversing the forestry in the dark brings to life a number of nocturnal species sleeping in the day including a wide variety of frogs, birds, and bats inhabiting the forest.

Your final three days in Playa Flamingo immerse you in the grandeur of the Pacific shores along the Guanacaste coast. Beaches with white sands, charming villages with excellent seafood, and marvelous watersports enhance the beauty of Costa Rica’s driest region. Traveling the Corobici River brings a safari experience along the tranquil waters giving way to countless sightings of wildlife quietly resting on the riverbanks. With plenty of time to embrace the hot sands and cool Pacific waters, you cannot pass on the opportunity to view the turtles of the region either returning to shore to lay eggs or hatching from their shells and returning to the water. The distinct experience adds another memory during your unforgettable mother-daughter tour of Costa Rica.
