Day1 Arrive Liberia and start your Costa Rica vacation
Meals D
Your family Costa Rica vacation begins at the Hotel Bosque del Mar, Playa Hermosa at 6:00 PM. A transfer is included from Liberia International Airport to Hotel Bosque del Mar, Playa Hermosa. "Playa Hermosa" is Spanish for "beautiful beach." Meet your fellow eco-adventurers at this evening's welcome dinner at your secluded oceanfront resort, where monkeys chatter overhead, iguanas walk the sands and lush gardens surround you.

Day2 Dive into a day of outdoor fun at a hacienda in Guanacaste
Meals B, D
A day of fun awaits your family today at a hacienda near the slopes of the Volcano Ricon de la Vieja in Guanacaste... such as a zip-line adventure* through the tree canopy, volcano hiking, nature watching via hanging bridges or a dip in volcanic thermal waters. Whichever you choose, it's a great way to kick off your Costa Rica vacation! Spend the rest of the day as you please back at your oceanfront hotel; join us for a bonfire beach party this evening before dinner at the hotel.

Day3 Cruise Lake Arenal and ride a sky tram or go zip-lining
Meals B, L, D
Drive to Lake Arenal, bordered by mountainous slopes and pastoral rolling hills. Take a cruise on the lake – and if the weather is good, you'll get a glimpse from the lake of cone-shaped Arenal Volcano, an actively "restless" volcano. Then catch an extraordinary bird's-eye view of this Costa Rica vacation highlight when you travel on a memorable sky-tram ride – or, if you prefer, on a thrilling "Sky Trek" zip-line ride* – where you soar over and through the canopy of rainforest treetops! Continue on to the Tilajari Resort Hotel for two nights at a resort in a private reserve.

Day4 River rafting and more at Tilajari Resort
Meals B, L, D
Board a river raft for a float trip* through the jungle today – it's another memorable moment on popular family Costa Rica vacation. An expert naturalist will help you try to spot giant iguanas, sloths, monkeys – maybe even crocodiles – that live along the Peñas Blancas River. You'll stop along the way to meet a local centenarian farmer and his extended family, who have lived on the river all of their lives. Return to your jungle resort to enjoy a host of fun activities for the remainder of the day – perhaps a little Costa Rica vacation fun including orchid spotting, bird watching, butterfly hunting, tropical fruit gathering, swimming, tennis or a garden tour. This evening, join us for a Spanish class.

Day5 A pineapple farm & a jungle lodge
Meals B, L, D
Today, your Costa Rica vacation takes you from the plantations and villages of the interior to its Caribbean coast. A highlight is your visit to an organic pineapple farm, where a local guide shows you the history of pineapple production from a special touring tramcar. A bumpy drive over unpaved roads and a boat ride through the jungle bring you to your home for the next two nights, a riverfront lodge set on a network of canals adjacent to coastal Tortuguero National Park. Keep an eye out for turtles, monkeys, toucans and more.
Lodging Evergreen Lodge

Day6 Tortuguero by water & land... and green sea turtles (in summer)
Meals B, L, D
Arise to the sounds of the rainforest this morning in Tortuguero National Park. 11 different habitats have been identified in the surrounding wilderness, including 60 kinds of mammals, 57 species of amphibians, 111 varieties of reptiles and more than 309 recorded species of birds! Your Costa Rica vacation explores this amazing place by both land and boat, cruising the jungle canals with an expert naturalist guide to look for wildlife. Visit a local village, and learn more about efforts to protect these amazing ecosystems for the future at the Caribbean Conservation Center. Take an optional canal cruise in the park this afternoon or spend time at leisure at your lodge. And if you're traveling with us between July and August, we'll take an unforgettable nighttime trip to the beach to observe nesting green sea turtles in one of the world's top nesting grounds for these endangered animals. You'll have a chance to see them make their way up the beach from the water to dig their nests in the sand, leaving tractor-tread trails behind them!
Lodging Evergreen Lodge

Day7 On to San José & a tasty look at chocolate-making
Meals B, L, D
As your Costa Rica vacation draws to a close, return to San José by air today. Learn everything you ever wanted to know about one of our favorite food groups... chocolate! See the natural process of transforming the cacao fruit into chocolate during a hands-on demonstration, do a little tasting and have lunch. Spend some free time exploring San José or enjoying the amenities of your hotel, then say "adios" to all the new friends your family has made at a fun-filled farewell reception and dinner tonight.
