Explore the full itinerary.

Day 1: Liberia Canton, Costa Rica

Fly into Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR), also known as Liberia International Airport, and take a complimentary shuttle to the first hotel, Hilton Garden Inn Liberia Airport. The rest of the day is set aside for relaxation.

Day 2: Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica

Next, the group heads to Arenal Volcano National Park, where whitewater rafting on the Balsa River class 2 and 3 river from Wave Expeditions or a tour via hanging bridges and cable car from Sky Adventures awaits. You'll spend the night in the park at Baldi Hot Springs Resort Hotel & Spa.

Day 3: Rincon de la Vieja, Costa Rica

Next up is Rincon de la Vieja National Park, where you'll have access to numerous activities, such as ziplining, a waterfall visit, horseback riding, a canopy tour, and soaking in a volcanic mud pool. Lunch is included. That evening, retire to your room at the Hotel Borinquen.

Day 4: Granada, Nicaragua

Drive to the city of Granada for a boat tour of small islands along the Asese Peninsula. Keep your eyes peeled for possible views of herons, parrots, and other native birds. Back on dry land, you'll return to Granada, where you can visit the convent of San Francisco, a cigar factory, Mombacho, or a main street full of restaurants, before spending the night at Hotel Colonial.

Day 5: Masaya and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

In the morning, visit La Merced Church before heading to Masaya Volcano and visiting Catarina, an artisan market town that overlooks the Laguna de Apoyo. Then it's off to San Juan del Sur, a beach town popular with surfers, for a quick lunch before making your way back to Costa Rica. You’ll spend the night (and the remainder of the trip) at Hotel Villas Playa Samara, located just steps from a white sand beach.

Days 6–7: Samara, Costa Rica

Hotel Villas Playa Samara's whitewashed cottages hug a horseshoe-shaped bay renowned for calm waters that are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. About a mile offshore lies a deserted island called Isla Chora, which you can explore on an included kayak tour. Expect to find crystal-clear water and a pink beach full of hermit crabs and iguanas.

Our guide was great, the activities were fun, and this 8 day Costa Rica & Nicaragua tour was a great way to see alot in a short period of time. But it was also alot of early mornings and long bus rides in order to get to each new place every day.
