Detailed Description

Treat yourself to a great escape in the wonders of Costa Rica. This 9-day adventure to Costa Rica will have you wandering around the marvelous foothills of an active volcano and watching the crater simmer against the bright blue sky.

Your magnificent tropical escape begins in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. The city’s charm quickly enraptures you in its display of history and jovial culture. Travel through the breathtaking rainforest of Braulio Carrillo National Park on your way to Arenal Volcano. An aerial tram will ferry you through the treetops to show you the exceptional jungle life in the canopy. The lively nature of Arenal Volcano is seen in its continual rising steam.

Follow your guide on a tour through Arenal Volcano National Park and witness the diverse landscape where the rainforest ends and the lava fields begin. Stroll through the Arenal canopy on a network of hanging bridges. Travel over land to Manuel Antonio National Park and find a unique mixture of beach and edging forestry. Stroll along the innumerable trails and relax in the calm waters of a protected cove.

Each shared moment is sure to bring you and your loved one closer. Fly to Drake Bay on the South Pacific edge of the country. Corcovado National Park is home to an abundance of life, of both flora and fauna. The rainforest pushes against the Pacific coastline and has marvelous trails to explore.
