Tonight, a local will teach you all about his village and its previous history as a coconut plantation. Watch as he demonstrates how they use coconuts before trying your hand at making a local favorite: coconut candy.
  • Day 4: Tortuguero National Park & San Carlos, Costa Rica. Take a boat back to the mainland and make your way towards Sarapiquí and Tirimbina Rainforest Center.

Stroll the botanical garden lined with fruit trees, including lemon, soursop, guava, mango and tangerine.
  • Day 5: San Carlos, Costa Rica. Explore the beauty of your surroundings on a Peñas Blancas River Safari.

  • Day 6: Arenal, Costa Rica. Today, suspended over the rainforest floor, relish a bird's-eye view of the jungle on a guided tour of Arenal’s famous hanging bridges.

Settle into your resort where you’ll be surrounded by striking views of Arenal’s famous volcano for the next three nights.

  • Day 8: Arenal, Costa Rica. In the shadow of Arenal Volcano, the day is yours to enjoy at leisure. Perhaps, if you’re feeling adventurous, you’ll opt for an exhilarating white water rafting experience. Or simply hang back at the resort, choose a spa service, explore the grounds, and soak in one of Arenal’s famous hot springs.
  • Day 9: Playa Herradura. This morning, wake up and smell the coffee at a local farm that produces some of Costa Rica’s well-known beans. Take a tour with local plantation workers and have a chance to discuss what life is like for these coffee farmers. In the afternoon, head to Playa Herradura and settle into your resort for the next two nights.
  • Day 10: Playa Herradura. Welcome to Manuel Antonio National Park, home to verdant rainforests and white sand beaches. In this natural wonderland, traverse the trails where the wild things are, or go for a swim in the turquoise waters as wildlife rummages in the canopies.

On this exhilarating jungle crocodile safari, you’ll boat beneath the towering jungle, looking along the river banks for a glimpse of these incredible creatures.
