Its famous National Park offers beautiful beaches surrounded by lush vegetation, both inside and outside the park. On these free days in the area you can combine relaxation on any of its beaches with some of the many activities available, such as nature walks, rafting, kayaking, zip-lining and sport fishing, among others.
On this day you will travel to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve located near the town of Santa Elena. This area protects the biodiversity of the region and the water sources that supply several rivers in the country. You will have time to explore Monteverde where, in addition to other activities, you can also get a bird’s eye view of the forest canopy by way of hanging bridges or zip lines, as well as observe the great diversity of flora and fauna that the area offers.

Early in the morning, after a cup of freshly brewed coffee, one of our drivers will arrive at the hotel to take you to El Ceibo restaurant where you’ll enjoy a typical Costa Rican breakfast and meet up with the Tortuguero hotel staff to continue your trip to that destination. Tortuguero National Park is only accessible by plane (with an additional charge) or by boat, which is recommended because during the boat trip you can observe the great biological diversity of the area. Green turtles nest on the beaches of Tortuguero from July to October, but throughout the year you can see the variety of wildlife that exists in the area by taking part in the activities already included in the package.
Halfway through the morning we will start our trip out of Tortuguero, to El Ceibo Restaurant in Guapiles where, after lunch, you will continue in a different transport unit to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.

Activities such as hiking, diving, cycling and horseback riding are available. Free days to enjoy the rich Afro-Caribbean culture, cuisine and music that give this beautiful area a special charm.

This area is composed of about 6 large islands and many smaller ones. Isla Colón is where most of the activity is concentrated, you can find small hotels of Caribbean influence. A visit the coral reefs is highly recommended, where you can deep-sea dive in the crystal clear waters. Free time to rest or take the opportunity to see dolphins in their natural habitat.
