Day 1

Arenal – Arrive in San Jose and Transfer to Arenal to Enjoy the Hot Springs

The pleasures of Costa Rica emanate from the pristine rainforest, spectacular beaches, quiet lodges far away from urban development, and the bustling life around San Jose. The Central Market was established in the 19th century with a circular formation filled with the active life of a Central American shopping center. Tens of thousands of locals and visitors from around the world visit the market daily to walk along the fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables spreading across 200 shops. Small restaurants known as sodas serve popular Costa Rican classics such as gallo pinto, beans and rice, with roasted chicken.

The aroma of fresh pineapple matches the brilliant red and green of vibrant watermelon, and bananas and plantains dangle from the beams of small stands. Outside of the marketplace, the city glows with the bright colors that drape over the facades of homes, cafes, and restaurants, layering the streets with a tropical ambiance. Coffee grows along the ridges of the surrounding mountains, stopping at 5,575 feet above sea level. Your private transfer greets you upon arrival at Juan Santamaria International Airport. You make your way out of the city to the region of Arenal and settle into the comforts of your stunning hotel known for the thermal springs running along its landscape, naturally heated by the volcanic activity of Arenal Volcano. You can see the cone of the summit lingering above the resort like the perfect image of a storybook volcano.
