Day 1: Liberia, Costa Rica

Fly into Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) 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: Hacienda Guachipelin

Next, the group heads to Guanacaste, where a full day of adventure awaits. This day includes a canyon canopy tour, a waterfalls canyon tour, a tubing excursion, and a dip in thermal waters and hot springs. You'll also go on a horseback ride before spending the night at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin.

Day 3: Monteverde Cloud Forest

Next up is a day trip to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, a jaw-dropping expanse of lush forests and biodiversity. You'll take a sky walk tour and a sky tram, allowing you to see the cloud forest from a bird's-eye view. From this vantage point, you'll take in undisturbed nature scenes—keep an eye out for jaguars, ocelots, tapirs, and the famously elusive quetzals. The evening is yours; relax and stretch out at the Hotel El Establo.

Day 4: Palo Verde National Park

In the morning, you'll head to Palo Verde National Park, one of Costa Rica's best wildlife-watching spots. Here, a river tour will give you a first-hand view of monkeys, crocodiles, and hundreds of species of birds. Afterwards, you'll visit the small pottery village of Guaitil, where you'll learn about Costa Rican traditions. The day's adventures end in Nicoya for a stop at one of Costa Rica's oldest churches, built in 1644. Retire to Hotel Villas Playa Samara, an elaborate beachfront resort that will be your home for the next three days.

Days 5–8: Samara

Hotel Villas Playa Samara's whitewashed cottages hug a horseshoe-shaped bay renowned for calm waters 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 waters and a pink beach full of hermit crabs and iguanas. Relax and splash in the waves during this sunny and peaceful wrap-up to your trip. After your stay here, you'll be shuttled back to the airport for your flight back home.
