Nice to meet ya, Costa Rica. Introducing the country encapsulating 'pura vida' to the extreme, a laid-back paradise where even the sloths are taking things easier than usual. After soaking up the culture in San Jose we hit the national parks in search of unspoilt rainforest and deserted white-sand beaches. And did we mention the sloths? This is a trip for nature lovers among you: a 'best of' trip in Costa Rica, which just happens to quite possibly have the 'best of' biodiversity in the whole wide world. You won't regret it.
Day 1: San Jose
San Jose is this dreamy country’s capital, a bustling city flanked by mountains to the south and more mountains to the north, with a few volcanoes thrown in for good measure. This rapidly expanding city contains lively markets, historic neighbourhoods and a chorus of beautiful old theatres, and a big chunk of the country’s population live within its boundaries. A complimentary transfer is included with your trip. Please ensure you provide your flight details to your booking agent at least 14 days prior to travel so the transfer can be organised. We’ll get things started with a welcome meeting at 6 pm, after which you can look for your first taste of Costa Rican cuisine. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader.
Day 2: Savegre
At 9 am, after breakfast, take a leader-led walking tour San Jose’s dynamic downtown area (1.5 hours). Around 11 am, you’ll take a private vehicle to Los Santos (two hours) and for a coffee tour and tasting at Don Cornelio, in Costa Rica’s coffee capital of Zona de Los Santos, Frailes. Lunch is also included there. Continue driving to Savegre (2 hours) with an informal Spanish lesson from your leader on the way, and spend the evening at a lodge in the cloud forest.
Day 3: Savegre / Los Quetzales National Park
Your entry to Los Quetzales National Park is included today which opens at 7:30 am (40 minute drive away), so expect an early start to maximise your chance of spotting birdlife. Take a adventurous and rewarding hike which is home to the resplendent quetzal. There are several optional activities to choose from to fill your afternoon including a birdwatching tour in search of the elusive yet striking bird, before returning to the lodge for optional dinner and exchanging stories with other travellers.
Day 4: Corcovado
Leave Savegre at 6 am in a private vehicle and drive two hours to the Finca 6 museum where you’ll spend an hour learning about the mysterious, pre-Columbian spheres whose significance remains unknown. Continue driving to the port, ready for the 11 am boat trip to Drake Bay. Utilise this travel time to ask your leader about the activities on offer in the area (most activities need to be pre-booked). Corcovado, a national park on the Osa Peninsula that’s known for its biodiversity. With 13 major ecosystems, over 400 species of birds and all the monkeys, turtles and butterflies you’d ever wish to see, it’s a nature-lover's heaven. Enjoy dinner at the secluded lodge hidden away in the pristine rainforest.
Day 5: Corcovado
The Osa Peninsula ranked highly on Nat Geo’s list of the most romantic places to visit and it’s not hard to see why. With deserted beaches, shimmering blue water and a huge rainforest, there aren’t many better places to take a lover. That being said, it’s just as good exploring by yourself or with some new Intrepid friends. There are several optional activities to choose from today. Work up a sweat on a hike through the national park, or perhaps choose to kayak during the day with colourful macaws then take a night walk, or maybe you’d prefer sunset bird-watching instead.
Day 6: Manuel Antonio
Depart at 7:30 am to take the boat and then drive six-hours north to Manuel Antonio, a national park on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast and certified sloth country. There’ll be an optional lunch stop on the way and the afternoon is yours to relax. Drop a towel on the white-sand beaches, take a swim or swing life away in a hammock. Perhaps choose to enjoy a sunset sail on the Pacific with your fellow travellers.
Day 7: Manuel Antonio
Spend another day in this lush tropical paradise and choose from several optional activities. Perhaps you’ll hike through the insanely beautiful national park in search search for sloths and iguanas, or maybe you’ll take a tour of the waterways and mangrove habitat by kayak. Already had your fill of rainforests? Stay beachside, rent a surfboard or boogieboard and spend a day catching rays and waves.
Day 8: San Jose
Slowly make your way back to San Jose by private vehicle, leaving at 7.30 am. The group will stop after 1.5 hours in Jaco for an aerial tram tour through the rainforest’s canopy. Fly above the treetops for views of the glistening Pacific before exploring the nearby butterfly garden and reptile terrariums, and enjoy an included buffet lunch before continuing to San Jose (2 hours) for an approximately 3 pm arrival. The rest of the afternoon is free for you relax and pick up where you left off exploring the city, but be sure to organise a farewell dinner with your group.
