Welcome to COSTA RICA! Our private van will pick you up at the San Jose airport. Next stop, the town of La Fortuna (drive time is about 2.5 hours). You’ll have the afternoon to get settled in and explore the quaint country town. We’ll gather for our Welcome Dinner in La Fortuna that evening.
Accommodation: TBD (hotel in La Fortuna)
After an early breakfast at the hotel, we dive right into a full day of ADVENTURE. The day starts with an epic canyoning excursion in the shadow of the Arenal volcano. Rappelling through waterfalls, jumping into rock pools and sliding down natural water slides - the adrenaline is sure to be pumping straight away!
After, we’ll break for a light snack of local fruit before continuing on to the Balsa River, where Class III+ rapids await. Plunging downriver, your guides will point out flora and fauna along the way- howler monkeys, toucans, maybe even a sloth sighting. Once we’ve had all we can take, we’ll enjoy a Costa Rican lunch buffet before returning to our hotel in La Fortuna. That evening, we’ll enjoy a traditional dinner in town.
Accommodation: TBD (Hotel in La Fortuna)
Our day starts with breakfast at the hotel before heading out to explore Lake Arenal and Arenal Volcano- by mountain bike! An intermediate trail winds through the forest and farmland surrounding the lake, providing great views of the volcano and plenty of thrills... During rest stops along the trail, our local guides will describe the history of the area while adding insight about the local plant and wildlife.
After our half-day excursion, we’ll grab lunch in town before loading into the van for the drive to Monteverde- home of the famous Cloud Forsets (Drive time approximately 3 hrs). Dinner is served at a local Taqueria in Monteverde.
Accommodation: TBD (Hotel/guesthouse in Monteverde)
After enjoying breakfast at our hotel, we will head out for yet another action-packed day. First stop- the Monteverde Extremo Zipline park. Scream like a howler monkey while flying through the cloud forest canopy, taking on 14 zip lines, 2 Superman cables, a 100-ft rappel and a massive Tarzan Swing.
After the tour, we’ll let our heart rate return to normal over lunch, then it’s back into town to relax for a bit before we get a taste of Monteverde Gold- coffee and chocolate! A tour through the locally-owned and operated Don Juan plantation provides a hands-on experience with 2 of Costa Rica’s most important exports. After, we’ll enjoy a group dinner before prepping for our Night Walk in the rain forest. It’s true what they say about wildlife coming out at night- we'll creep through trails with a local naturalist as they point out all the wonderful and rarely seen creatures that call the night home.
Accommodation: TBD (Hotel/guesthouse in Monteverde)
After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll head to the Monteverde Sky Tram for a visit to the cloud forest canopy. The open-air gondola soars higher and higher, with views continuing to expand across the mountainsides. Our guide will discuss the local wildlife as we continue to climb to the observation platform. After soaking up the scenery, we’ll descend to the next portion of our visit- the Hanging Bridges. Designed for bird lovers and wildlife enthusiasts, the hanging bridges allow visitors to experience the cloud forest the way the local residents- sloths and howler monkeys- do.
After our visit, we’ll grab lunch in town before loading into the van for the drive to the beach at Esterillos Oeste (2.5 hours). Upon arrival,we’ll settle into our beachfront hotel and enjoy the afternoon sun before gathering for dinner.
Accommodation: TBD (EsterillosOeste)
Welcome to Paradise! After enjoying a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, take hold of the reins and seize the day- it's yours to do whatever you wish! Surf lessons, ATV excursions, sport fishing tours, horseback riding on the beach- there's LOADS to do in the surrounding area. Alternatively, take the day to relax- by the pool at the hotel, at the spa, on the beach... You decide! Your Fit 4 Adventure guide will be happy to assist in booking activities for the day. That evening, dinner is DIY- choose your own culinary adventure!
Accommodation: TBD (Playa Esterillos Oeste)
After breakfast at the hotel, will hit the nearby town of Jaco for a chance to enjoy some free time to shop, pick up souvenirs and keepsakes. We’ll have lunch by the beach before loading into the van and heading back toward San Jose (3 hrs). Upon arrival at our hotel in Alajuela, we’ll drop our bags and head out to explore the local market before celebrating the end of a great trip with our group Celebration Dinner that evening.
Accommodation: Hampton Inn by Hilton, SJO Airport
Departure day: Book flights out of SJO airport for your return home. The hotel provides free 24-hour shuttles to the airport.
Just finished a phenomenal week in Cost Rica with Fit4Adventure! As usual, the trip was great and the folks you meet even more great. What a beautiful country and wonderful inhabitants. We had so many adventures- canyoneering, zip lining across beautiful valleys in the Superman position, mountain bike riding, night jungle hikes (including encounters with the tarantula hawk hornet, pit vipers no extra charge), hikes into the canopy and clouds, stays at a beautiful beach resort with wild macaws that would pay visits, body surfing, sand dollar tours 🙂, lost river rides to see monkeys, sloughs, etc. Wonderful food (except one sandwich that we will not go into). Wonderful full body laughs all week and memories for a lifetime. Pura Vida!
I would highly recommend Fit4Adventure if you are looking for an action packed destination vacation. From the moment I got through security at the airport, Nick had everything planned, organized and ready to go and was an amazing host. All the transportation, hotel accommodations and excursions were taken care of and restaurant were either pre-reserved or researched recommendations for "own-my-own" meals. I didn't have to think or do anything but show up and the scheduled time wearing the recommended clothing. He handled all the arrangements and I just got to relax and enjoy. Pura Vida!
Truly was an awesome adventure... Can't believe we had perfect weather for a week! Each person added so much to the trip for me, personally. Thanks, Fit 4 Adventure! Pura Vida!
We'll plan the trip!
