Day 1 - San José: Pura Vida
Costa Rica is calling and you have answered. Dive head first into the capital bustling downtown and soak in the city's energy from the Plaza de la Cultura, centrally-located near the hotel. We welcome you to San José, and invite you to prepare for an unforgettable adventure of some of Costa Rica's best highlights and hidden gems.
Day 2 - Mount Chirripó Area: The Central Highlands
Swap the big city energy for stunning natural beauty as you take in the breathtaking views from the walking trails at Irazú Volcano, the highest active volcano in the country. If you're extremely lucky and the skies are clear it is possible to see both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts from the top. The evening provides a respite from the hustle and bustle as you settle into a wellness eco-camp at the foot of Chirripó Mountain, an ideal place to connect with nature and with your senses.
Day 3 - Mount Chirripó Area: Your OMG Day
Freedom and choice are the order of the day to get the most out of this incredible part of the country. The nearby Cloudbridge Nature Reserve offers hiking and wildlife-spotting opportunities while closer to camp provides a waterfall hike with a swim and yoga. Allow the landscapes, movement and environment to revitalize your body and mind.
Day 4 - Puerto Jimenez: The Osa Peninsula
The Osa Peninsula is Costa Rica's final frontier, home to vast wilderness, wildlife and incredible diversity, and it will be our playground for the next couple of days. The journey south provides continuously changing landscapes until reaching the pristine coastal rainforest and stretches of wild ocean as far as the eye can see.
Day 5 - Puerto Jimenez: Corcovado National Park
Set off on an unforgettable expedition into the wilds of Corcovado National Park, a natural treasure of Costa Rica. One of the most biodiverse places on the planet, we will venture in and out by boat to head into the park on foot in search of an array of tropical birds and wildlife like toucans, monkeys and the elusive jaguar. When you hear the distinctive call, turn your eyes skyward to catch a glimpse of colourful macaws, usually flying in pairs and gleaming in the sun.
Day 6 - Manuel Antonio National Park: The Pacific Coast
Beautiful beaches and small towns dot the Pacific coastline from north to south, with hidden coves and surf breaks coming into sight as you round each corner. Take in the sweeping views and hike to a waterfall before descending down to one of Costa Rica's most well-known gems at Manuel Antonio National Park.
Day 7 - Manuel Antonio National Park: Wildlife and Beaches
Wildlife, birds and natural beauty abound as you head into Manuel Antonio National Park to walk the coastal jungle trails. Embrace the slower pace like the resident sloths of the forest to appreciate the lush environment packed with wildlife before settling on one of the park's idyllic beaches for a swim.
Day 8 - San José
Leave the coast behind and relive the memories on the return to San Jose and on the onward travels home.
