9-Day Costa Rica Vacation

You'll spend 9 days immersed in Costa Rica's rich-and-diverse landscape. A rental car makes it easy to see Arenal Volcano and visit the country's sun-kissed Guanacaste region before you venture into the Central Valley cloud forest. 

This vacation includes:

  • Round-trip airfare
  • Alternate departure dates/gateways may be available for additional fee
  • 3 nights' standard accommodations at GreenLagoon Falls Park & Lodge, Arenal area
  • 3 nights' standard accommodations at Coco Beach Resort, Playas del Coco, Guanacaste
  • 2 nights' standard accommodations at La Condesa, Central Valley cloud forest area
  • Daily breakfast
  • Economy-manual-car rental
  • Self-guided hiking tour of Cerro Chato, nature park, and gardens

La Fortuna: Home to Arenal Volcano

The vacation begins in La Fortuna, with lodging on a 400-acre farm set amid dense tropical foliage near La Fortuna waterfall, Cerro Chato, and Arenal Volcano National Park.

  • Arenal Volcano is the town's centerpiece at 5,200 feet high. Its most recent big eruption was in 1968; today you can hike through fields of petrified lava.
  • La Fortuna waterfall cascades about 230 feet down into a pool surrounded by massive boulders.

Guanacaste: Hip Nightclubs and Pristine Beaches

Drive west to reach your next stop, Guanacaste, where you'll spend 3 days at a hotel on Coco Beach. It's one of many beaches that helped Guanacaste earn the nickname of the Gold Coast.

  • Rincón de la Vieja National Park: Its nearly 35,000 acres include tropical forests and volcanoes that still sputter and spurt with minor geothermal activity.
  • Tamarindo: Surfers come here for the beach's breaks. The town's streets are lined with shops selling souvenirs and surf gear; you can hit up trendy nightclubs after dark.

Central Valley Cloud Forest: Biodiversity in Highlands

The final 3 days of this vacation find you in a biologically diverse region of cloud forests, waterfalls, and volcanoes.

  • La Paz Waterfall Gardens: Follow trails along the La Paz River to see gardens filled with rare orchids and abuzz with hummingbirds and butterflies.
