Accommodations will consist of comfortable, exotic cottages set in the middle of the rain forest with a breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea. We will have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoor jacuzzi, relaxing massages and a gourmet healthy cuisine. Yoga classes will be available every morning and every evening.
Day 1: We set out through the Braulio Carillo National Park towards the Caribbean coast to M11466. In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to finally relax and soak in the large Jacuzzi while looking at the sunset or enjoy a Yoga class.
Day 2: We will explore Cahuita National Park. The coral reef of Cahuita National Park includes approximately 240 habitats. There are 123 different species of fishes, 44 species of crustaceans, 140 shellfish and 1281 seaweed species identified. We can also observe 35 different coral species such as the fire coral, the red coral and the black coral which is unique to this area. This tour will start with a boat trip to the coral reef where you will be snorkeling. Then you will follow a guided walk on the Cahuita National Park's trail, where wild animals are easily spotted in the middle of the abundant and colorful flora. The rest of the day is to be enjoyed lying on the white sand beach or visiting Cahuita village.
Day 3: A must for the adventurous, the Canopy tour will give a real taste of the tropical rain forest. Sixteen aerial platforms and 2400 meters of cable are nestled deep into the jungle. Our professional guide will guide you from one platform to the other through a zip line and he will also explain about the vegetation, the animals, and how the local indigenous use some of the herbs you will see. An incredible opportunity to "dive" into the jungle and enjoy it from above.
Day 4: Excursion to Punta Uva located in the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife refuge. Outside Magazine calls it "one the best seven beaches of the world." Exploring the Punta Uva promontory or snorkeling and sunbathing at the beach are the activities you may have during the day. Either way, this is a day full of adventure and wonders. Back at M11466, we have the choice of hanging in our private hammock, have a massage, or try out a Yoga class or...have it all!
Day 5: Visit to the Cacao plantation that includes a guided visit to each one of the sections of the park (Corn plantation, Cacao plantation, Botanical garden, Medicinal garden, Iguana farm), canoes tour in the Cacao Trails canals, walk through the Cahuita National Park, visit to the Cahuita Turtle nesting beach. You will then enjoy a Caribbean style buffet lunch, fresh fruits and juices!
Day 6: Today the adventure is Waterfall Trekking to a majestic waterfall. Forty minutes to an hour walk in the jungle, in the river, up and down big rocks. Healing and powerful, the waterfall is like a jungle baptism. Jumping under the strong jets will massage and renew anyone!
Day 7: Free day. A good time to enjoy a massage, hang in your hammock, or have a lazy stroll at the beach.
Day 8: A relaxing morning and light breakfast before heading back to San.
