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, 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:

Mid-morning, 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.
