After breakfast, one of our representatives will take you to the local airport in San Jose to get the local flight to the Corcovado National Park located in the Osa Peninsula. Corcovado is an ecological paradise with a wonderful coastline, amazing mangroves and great biological diversity. Spanning over 41,000 hectares, the park protects several species of fauna and vegetation, some of them endemic. You will enjoy two activities during your stay, a hike to the national park and, the next day, a snorkeling excursion on Isla del Caño, both with a delicious picnic-style lunch included.
We will take you back to the port of embarkation in Sierpe where one of our transportation units will be waiting to take you to the central Pacific coast of the country where Manuel Antonio is located. 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.
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 will enjoy a typical Costa Rican breakfast and meet up with the Tortuguero hotel staff to continue your trip to that destination. The Tortuguero National Park is one of the most famous in Costa Rica, only accessible by plane (with an additional charge) or by boat, which is more highly recommended as you will be able to observe this zone’s great biological diversity during the ride. 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 just 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. Located near the border with Panama, on the southern Caribbean coast, Puerto Viejo is an ideal place to enjoy multicolored sand beaches, this area is surrounded by the Cahuita National Park to the south and the Gandoca Manzanillo Reserve to the north. 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.
