Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1
La Fortuna

After meeting and picking you up at the airport, we will travel by private shuttle through beautiful rolling hills to our hotel located in the heart of Costa Rica's adventure zone.

Day 2
La Fortuna

Starting off the day, you will head out on the ultimate waterfall adventure - strap on a harness and rappel with a guide down 4 tropical waterfalls. After the thrill of the descent, make your way along magical trails to reach the top of a brilliant, pristine canyon where lunch will be served. In the afternoon you're off on a hike along the base of Central America's most-active volcano: Arenal Volcano. The evening brings the much anticipated chance to do some nighttime lava viewing and to relax in natural, volcano heated hot springs and recover from the day's adventures. (Breakfast and lunch included)

Day 3
La Fortuna

Getting a bright and early start, you'll take an adrenaline-filled whitewater rafting trip down the intense Class 4 Rio Toro and feel the exhilaration of over 45 crazy, continuous rapids in this secluded, picturesque canyon. (Breakfast and lunch included)

Day 4
La Fortuna

Today you will enjoy a scenic horseback ride which is done completely on trails along the slopes of Arenal Volcano, not on conventional roads (children's saddles are available if needed). In fact, this mountain trail was used many years ago by the pioneers of the region. Cross rivers and beautiful landscapes and admire the Arenal Volcano from a very close, but very safe perspective. During the ride you will stop at a viewing point where you can clearly see lava from previous eruptions. (Breakfast included)

Day 5
Manuel Antonio National Park

Today will be your chance to participate in the most quintessential of Costa Rican activities: riding through the treetops on a safe, picturesque and exhilarating canopy zip-line tour. Here you'll get to see nature from high up in the jungle canopy. In the afternoon you will travel to Manuel Antonio National Park, considered by many to have two of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. During your stay at the beach, you can watch an awe inspiring sunset over the Pacific Ocean, explore the National Park, watch the monkeys and wildlife, sign up for an optional surfing lesson, swim in the warm ocean waters, buy some souvenirs from the local craftsmen, or just relax on the beach. Be sure to enjoy the friendly and welcoming local "Tico" nightlife and excellent local restaurants! (Breakfast included)

Day 6
Manuel Antonio National Park

Free day. The day is yours to spend as you wish. You can spend the day at the local beach or take the short and picturesque walk through Manuel Antonio National Park and spend the day exploring the two spectacular beaches within the park.

Day 7
Alajuela/San Jose

After a lazy, relaxing morning on the beach you will be picked up at your hotel and travel to your hotel in Alajuela, just on the outskirts of the capital city of San Jose. You'll have one last chance for shopping before catching your flight home the following morning.

Day 8
San Jose & Airport Transfer

Trip ends. You're transferred to the airport to catch your flight home or, even better, continue with another one of our great adventures.
