Overview

This is a great package for you who want to discover the beautiful nature and animals of Costa Rica with your significant other! After arriving in the capital San Jose and spending your first night there, we will take you to amazing Tortuguero on the northern Caribbean Coast. Tortuguero means “place of the turtle” and is often referred to as “Little Amazonas” because of its stunning nature. If you are here during turtle season you can add an additional tour to watch the turtles lay their eggs (July-October, February-April). Individual turtles can be seen all year around. During your 3-day stay here you will experience three different excursions such as a riverboat tour, hike in the rainforest, and a visit to the town of Tortuguero to interact with the locals. The animals that can be seen here are crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, sloths, many different species of birds, and a lot more!

When we have enjoyed the Caribbean Coast, we travel on to the cozy mountain town of La Fortuna and the majestic volcano Arenal. The town itself offers nice restaurants, both domestic and international. La Fortuna and Arenal are also great locations to spot the very cute animal, the sloth. While staying here, we will take you on an adventurous half-day tour that includes horseback riding (or car) to the 229 ft (70 m)-high waterfall of La Fortuna. After this morning tour we head back to our luxurious hotel Tabacon to enjoy its hot-springs for the rest of the afternoon.

Our next stop on our trip is the magical rainforest of Monteverde and luxurious glamping hotel Chira. This great rainforest has more than 2,500 plant species and is great for hiking. We will have a beautiful adventure as we hike on the hanging bridges through the rainforest with our professional guide. We will also visit the butterfly garden and the hummingbird garden before we finally get to go on an adrenalin-pumping zip-line tour! Monteverde is also a bird watchers’ paradise as there are more than 365 species of birds, and it’s also Costa Rica’s and maybe the world’s most famous habitat for the mystical and beautiful bird Quetzal. 

After our visit to Monteverde we travel on to the Pacific beach town on Tamarindo. Tamarindo is famous for its beautiful beach, great beginners surfing, delicious food, and amazing surrounding beaches. You will be staying in an adult-only 4 star hotel Jardin del Eden with great service and relaxing times. You can get tanned and swim on the beach, try surfing, or add one of many exciting tours available to your itinerary. After your romantic stay in Tamarindo we will take you to the airport in Liberia and say goodbye for this time. You are very welcome to return to Costa Rica!
