Costa Rica Highlights Tour
Beginning with a flight into San Jose, you’ll spend your first night here in Hotel Grano de Oro before transferring to Tortuguero National Park the following day.
A boat transfer will take you to Tortuga Lodge & Gardens where you’ll stay for a blissful two nights. This intimate retreat is set amongst 50 acres of gardens bursting with tropical plants and bountiful wildlife. Whilst here, you’ll join one of the hotel’s naturalist guides on a nature walk, explore the canals of the national park by boat, and go on a tour to Tortuguero village.
Following this, you’ll journey to Arenal where you’ll stay at one of the best hotels in Costa Rica – Nayara Springs. This exclusive, adults-only haven is surrounded by dense rainforest and contains all the amenities you’ll need to relax and unwind. Indulge yourself at the spa, and dip into your private plunge pool which is fed by natural mineral hot springs.
There’s more adventure ahead as the next day sees you taking a ride on the Sky Tram gondolas where you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the rainforest as a guide points out the diverse flora and fauna on show. You’ll also get up close to the sleeping Arenal Volcano to see the lava fields created by the 1968 eruption.
Your next destination is the visually-dramatic Manuel Antonio National Park. Your time in this tropical paradise will be enhanced with a stay at Arenas del Mar Beachfront & Rainforest Resort.
