Lush forests and stunning waterfalls…exotic wildlife and endless coastlines…Costa Rica is truly a slice of paradise. Your tour begins in the colorful capital city of San Jose. Journey through the lush countryside of the Central Valley to the fertile region world-renowned for its coffee. Enjoy a tour of the Doka Coffee Estate highlights the history and cultivation of coffee and its importance to the Costa Rican economy. 

Upon arrival in Monteverde, take a nature walk through this spectacular ecosystem and encounter many incredible species of flora and fauna up-close. Embark on a guided walking tour above the forest floor on a leisurely paced “Hanging Bridges” tour and get a different perspective on the cloud forest’s unique ecosystem, its mammals, birds, plants and flora.

Traverse through the beautiful mountainous landscapes of Monteverde to Arenal, where breathtaking views of the volcano await you. Be surrounded by tranquility on a delightful cruise on Lake Arenal, the largest and most important lake in Costa Rica. Embark on a Cano Negro guided riverboat trip in a panga (covered canoe), stopping along the way to observe and photograph the wildlife that surround you which may include crocodiles, river otters, sloths, river turtles, exotic birds and rare butterflies — all known to live in the area.

Discover the charming town of Zarcero and visit its well-known whimsical topiary garden. Continue to the small, picturesque town of Grecia to see the unusual metal church constructed of brick-red metal panes; walk the beautifully landscaped central park; or shop at the traditional local market. Enjoy a farewell dinner upon returning to San Jose.
