Itinerary

DAY 1. SAN JOSÉ, COSTA RICA (20 MINUTES)

Welcome to San Jose, Costa Rica. Discover Costa Rica’s exceptional nature on our two-week trip to see famous sea turtle beaches, a top scenic river, dazzling cloud forest, whale-watching coasts and sublime tropical beaches. We will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel. You have the rest of the day free. The capital city of San Jose is located in the middle of Costa Rica’s central valley, making it a strategic place for day trips. In addition, there are numerous cultural attractions to visit, like theaters, museums, historic buildings and beautiful parks. Other ideas for things to do include shopping at one of the craft markets, or going out to dinner in one of the city’s many restaurants, some of them with stunning views of the valley. Accommodation: Hotel Grano de Oro.

DAY 2. SAN JOSÉ – TORTUGUERO (6 HOURS)

Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will cross the majestic Braulio Carrillo National Park heading east toward the Caribbean town of Guápiles, where you will enjoy a delicious breakfast. Then you’ll continue to the pier where your boat to Tortuguero will depart. Your boat tour will take you along the rivers and canals about 90 minutes to the hotel, providing an excellent opportunity to see wildlife and the jungle scenery. After lunch, you will visit the village of Tortuguero. Dinner is included at the hotel. Accommodation: Mawamba Lodge.

DAY 3. TORTUGUERO

Breakfast at the hotel. In the morning, you will go on a guided walk along the private paths of the hotel. After lunch, you will take a boat tour through the Tortuguero National Park canals. The Tortuguero National Park is famous for being the habitat of five species of sea turtles, and a great diversity of birds, amphibians and other animals. We recommend the optional night excursion to see turtle nesting. Dinner is included at the hotel. Accommodation: Mawamba Lodge.

DAY 4. TORTUGUERO – PACUARE (4.5 HOURS)

Breakfast at the hotel. You will return by boat back through the Tortuguero canals until you reach the pier, where you will continue by ground transportation to Guapiles for lunch. Afterward, you will be transferred to the Pacuare Lodge. A visit to the Pacuare Lodge means a trip to a magical place in the middle of virgin rainforest along one of Costa Rica’s most famous rivers, the Pacuare. You will be delighted by the beauty and diversity of the tropical nature, and thrilled by adventure activities, while authentic Costa Rican hospitality will make you feel like part of the family. The cozy lodge rests in the middle of a private reserve next to the Pacuare River, considered one of the 10 most scenic rivers in the world, bordered by tropical jungle where colorful birds and butterflies fly among exuberant vegetation. The song of toucans and oropendulas complement the relaxing sounds of the river. Accommodation, lunch and dinner at Pacuare Lodge.

DAY 5. PACUARE

Wake up to birds singing and the rushing sounds of the river. Then head to the main lodge for a delicious breakfast made with fresh ingredients. You can choose any of these optional tours to do today: guided walks through the emerald rainforest, a visit to the Cabecar indigenous people (cultural exchange with a Shaman), and the zip line. Accommodation, lunch and dinner at Pacuare Lodge.

DAY 6. PACUARE – TURRIALBA (2 HOURS)

On your very scenic journey, you will enjoy impressive tall mountains covered by lush green cloud forest. Tucked between the mountains in a narrow valley and surrounded by extensive forests, San Gerardo de Dota offers a paradise of flora and fauna in its purest state. Due to its elevation at more than 2,000 meters (6,560 feet) above sea level, it enjoys a temperate and cool climate. Combined with the fascinating cloud forest, it is a perfect destination for nature lovers. Accommodation: Savegre Lodge.

Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will drive down to the “Ballena Coast”, or Whale Coast, in the southern Pacific region. The Ballena Marine National Park in this area was created to preserve various coastal habitats, such as beaches, estuaries, mangroves, islands and coral reefs. The park also protects marine life like the endangered humpback whales that migrate to Costa Rica’s coasts to mate and have their calves. Accommodation: Tiki Villas Lodge.
