Day 1:

You’ll arrive at 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 open for relaxation.

Day 2:

After breakfast, you’ll check in at the next hotel, Hacienda Guachipelin, and then depart for a full day of adventure tours. Highlights include a waterfall-and-canyon tour, a tubing adventure on the Rio Negro, a horseback ride, and a visit to hot springs.

Day 3:

The day begins with breakfast at Hacienda Guachipelin, and then it’s on to your next stop: El Establo hotel, located on a scenic overlook in the Monteverde cloud forest. Later in the day, you’ll depart for a trip across the suspension bridges that make up Sky Walk and ride the Sky Tram deep into the tropical rainforest. From the open gondola, you’ll be in a great position to spot tropical birds, and, if you’re lucky, jaguars and ocelots.

Day 4:

Midmorning, you’ll set sail on a river tour through Palo Verde National Park, where you can expect to see crocodiles and howler monkeys. This remote network of mangrove swamps is a haven for birds, including storks, egrets, and spoonbills. Then you’ll visit Guaitil, a small town where residents have been making pottery using the same techniques for more than 5,000 years.

You’ll spend the night (and the remainder of the trip) at Hotel Villas Playa Samara, located just steps from a gorgeous white-sand beach.

Days 5–8:

The hotel’s whitewashed cottages hug a horseshoe-shaped bay renowned for its calm waters, ideal for swimming and snorkeling. You’ll have plenty of time to explore the area, including its discotheque and many restaurants. About a mile offshore lies a deserted wooded island called Isla Chora. You can explore the island on the included kayak tour. Expect to find crystal-clear water and a pink beach full of hermit crabs and iguanas.

More guidance in advance regarding what to pack, detailed itinerary, and customary tipping of guides, drivers, etc., would have been helpful.

First few days were wonderful and fun, but last days slow, needed some scheduled activities included into the package price. Last hotel needed a shuttle, phone in room for emergency or for a wake up call---TV would be nice too. The Escalon Hotel was amazing---better if we could have stayed there an additional day. Staff was great, food was good and overall I truly enjoyed this trip.

Pictures are over priced and certainly not worth the money, poor quality.

Loved everything about our tour! The driver, guide and photographer were wonderful! We met some great people in our tour that we will stay friends with. Everything we did on the tour was loads of fun and our hotels were really nice. We would take another Monkey Tour in a heartbeat and will tell our friends to book through Monkey tours if they go to Costa Rica!

The last hotel is very lacking in quality. The service was worse, waiting for food was extremely slow and never tasted good even after the long wait. Worst thing was after arriving, when arriving in a foriegn country without confirmation on who is picking us up or even what to look out for can be scary. We were bombarded by maybe fifteen different taxi drivers yelling at us to come with them and the one who looked the most conspicuous kept asking who we were waiting for and to just come with him. We replied with no, we are waiting for monkey tours and he replied, "Yup come with me". That wasn't convincing. More details would have been helpful. We made the best of this trip, but never again.
