Arrive at any time. There are no planned activities during the day, so check in to the hotel and explore the city. If you arrive early enough, you'll have time to explore the city.
Day 2: San José/Monteverde
Drive through Costa Rica's beautiful countryside to Monteverde to explore the verdant cloud forest and enjoy the surrounding area. Today's ride can be a bumpy ride on some unpaved roads, but the views along the way are spectacular.

Enjoy a two-day guided rafting expedition along the Pacuare River, stopping at times to explore on foot, then stay the night in rustic cabins built along the river.

In the evening, stay at a jungle lodge on the banks of the Pacuare River in a scenic, but remote location.

Rent a bike or hire a boat to Manzanillo, hike to Monkey Point through the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. Try snorkelling or take it easy and and explore La Isla Botanical Gardens.
