Day 2

 

Day 3

 

Put on some comfy shoes for the hike to La Fortuna Waterfall. You will hear the roar of the falls as you descend down the trails to where the water comes crashing down. Swim in the cool moutain water, take lots of pics, and take time to enjoy this collosal waterfall!

Lunch is a traditional Costa Rican meal called a "casado" with beans, rice, salad, avocado, plantains and a meat (pork, fish, chicken, beef - also a veggie option).

Then we go to Proyecto ASIS, an animal rescue that rehabilitates monkeys, sloths, birds and other wildlife. We will learn about their mission, then we will roll up our sleeves prepare the meals and feed the animals!

After a day of hikes and animal rescue, you need to relax. We will go to Baldi Thermal Spa to unwind and soak in their 25 volcano heated pools. Dinner is included and there are several swim up bars where you can get a beer or cocktail. This is a real trip highlight!

Day 4

 

Let's head to the beach! We will hit the road early for the drive to the Pacific. Along the way we will stop for a spectacular brunch by Chef Nicolas Devenelle at Numu Bistro and Tap Room. Flights of Numu's award winning beer make this the perfect craft beer meal!

We will arrive Playa Flamingo mid-day and check in to the fantastic beachfront Margaritaville Hotel! Relax at the pool, get a cocktail at the swim up bar, or grab a chair and hit the beach!

You have some free time here. Grab dinner on your own at the hotel or one of the easily walkable local restaurants. Your guides can offer suggestions and arrange transportation if you want to travel a bit further to eat.

Day 6

 

You have relaxed and recharged, now let's go have some fun! Let's start with a world class zip-lining adventure at Diamante Eco-Adventure Park! Five zip-lines including the 1 mile long tandem Superman make this quite the thrill! They have the most modern, technically advanced zip-line available so you will feel safe and secure and will enjoy soaring with the a spectacular view of the Pacific!

Enjoy a sunset catamaran cruise around Potrero Bay. Music, dancing, drinks and heavy hors d'ouevres complement the setting sun. This cruise is always a blast!

Potrero Brewing is on the agenda for dinner. TJ is making what we think is some of the best beer ANYWHERE. They also make root beer and their own ice cream so an ice cream float is a MUST! There are several food option at the brewery from an italian pizzaria, to Salvadoran street food, to traditional sliders. Enjoy the night and talk about the day's adventures.
