Board conveyance and head into the lush, green countryside of Costa Rica.
Dine the first night in tropical splendor.
January 3

Morning tour of  Arenal Volcano 
Noon swim in hot springs.
Afternoon free for own activities and tours.

January 4 and 5

Transfer to Monteverde Cloud Forest

Enjoy activities of your choice.
Take a tram tour of the cloud forest canopy (above). Keep an eye out for the elusive quetzal bird. Visit butterfly or tree-frog gardens. Check out the hummingbird galleries.

The moderately adventurous can bird and animal watch in the cloud forest (below) or hike to the continental divide (only four thousand feet high), both easy to accomplish. The really adventurous can go zip lining.


January 6 and 7

After four days at high elevations, transfer to the rainforest tropics on the Pacific Coast.

Ecotour Manuel Antonio National Park. Go charter fishing, snorkeling, or horseback riding among many exciting activities.

Or relax on the beach or by (in) the pool .

January 8, transfer to the capital of San Jose. Arrive early afternoon for a glimpse of Costa Rica's big city. (Note possibly we'll stay another day on the Pacific Coast.)

January 9. After an early morning for exploring the city awakening, transfer to airport for flight home.
