This exciting holiday explores Costa Rica's most dramatic contrasts: cloud forests, volcanoes, lakes, waterfalls and the Pacific coast. You'll be amazed at the amount of wildlife you'll encounter. From quetzals and tree frogs to agoutis and iguanas, each day is memorably different.
Our local guides have an expert knowledge of Costa Rica's flora and fauna and are passionate walkers. With them our tour is even more remarkable as we learn about Costa Rica's unique natural inheritance. Walking on forest paths and some country tracks, you'll spot wildlife along the way with agoutis and coatis scrambling across the path in Monteverde and monkeys swinging through the trees at Rincon de la Vieja. Awe-inspiring panoramas abound with balcony views to the distant Pacific Ocean and sweeping vistas over Lake Arenal and to the magnificent Arenal volcano.
The hotels you stay in are typically mountain lodge style with separate small buildings or bungalows. All have beautiful tropical gardens and swimming pools. Highlights include Arenal Observatory Lodge, where you enjoy stunning views of the volcano and Bosque del Mar on Playa Hermosa. Lunches are a mix of picnics and local restaurants, while dinners are taken in the hotels. One evening is spent at Eco Termales in Arenal where dinner is enjoyed after relaxing in the hot springs!
