8 Day Cornerstones of Costa Rica

8 Day Cornerstones of Costa Rica
From the enveloping rainforests, raging rivers, and mist-shrouded volcanoes, there’s an exotic vivacious energy that infuses all aspects of life in Central America’s adventure capital. The locals express it in a phrase that’s shorthand for anything and everything: pura vida (“pure life”). This trip gives you the purest, 100% unfiltered pura vida you’ll find anywhere.

In the lush jungle environs of Arenal, you’ll take a guided private walk through the Hanging Bridges of Arenal, home to a dazzling 10,170-foot (3,100-meter) network of elevated walkways that provide unbelievable views and the chance to spot howler monkeys and exotic birds in their natural habitat before slipping into the invigorating thermal waters at your resort. Later, climb into a whitewater raft and brave the rushing Class II and III rapids of the Balsa River on a thrilling three-hour ride. Next, head deep into Arenal’s magical rainforest on a privately guided hike to the base of the region’s namesake volcano, keeping an eye peeled for monkeys, toucans, coatimundi, and other creatures along the way. On the way to picturesque Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio, you’ll embark on a brief cruise in search of iguanas, basilisks (nicknamed the “Jesus Christ lizard” for its ability to spring across the surface of the water), and the star attraction: crocodiles as long as 15 feet (4.5 meters)! Elsewhere in Manuel Antonio, you’ll have the chance to wander the trails or stretch out on the beach and hang out with curious monkeys before devoting an entire day swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and lounging about at the comfortable confines of a four-star rainforest retreat.
