Fun Sun and Adventure Package

ARENAL-SPRINGSx600

Our Fun, Sun and Adventure Package was especially designed for those travellers wanting to experience some of Costa Rica`s highlights.  After one night in San Josè, start your exciting vacation with a relaxing cruise to beautiful Tortuga Island, on the Pacific Coast.  Particularly enchanting for it’s beauty, Tortuga Island is known for its immaculate white sand beach and turquoise waters, a perfect stop for swimming, snorkeling and Calypso’s famous lunch.

For passenger safety and convenience Manta Raya has a bow ramp which allows her passengers to disembark directly onto the beach.  At the end of this tour we will take you directly to Monteverde where you will stay for 3 days.

This area boasts some of the world’s last remaining tracts of cloud forest, and provides an ideal habitat for birds such as the resplendent quetzal and bell bird.  Continue your adventure at the amazing Arenal Volcano area, one of Costa Rica`s most active volcanoes.  Here,  besides having the chance of watching an eruption, you will enjoy a  relaxing time at one of the natural hotsprings of the area.  Now, heading to the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica, 2 nights will be offered at one of the enchanting hotels of Puerto Viejo Beach.  Feel the rhythm of Calypso music, while relishing a typical rice and beans and tropical cocktail  within   the exuberant  “evergreen” vegetation of the zone and the white sand  Caribbean beach.  End your vacation with one more night in San Jose.
