March 9, 2019 - March 15, 2019
Land in San Jose, the capitol city of Costa Rica. After landing, travel by private vehicle to the coastal town of Quepos. From there you'll check into your room, unpack, and prepare to embark on a tour of your new town for next six days.
Enjoy a complimentary breakfast before you embark on a guided tour of one of Costa Rica's most beautiful natural attractions Manuel Antonio National Park. There you'll get to see monkeys, sloths, and other exotic animals roaming around in their natural habitats. After the trek through the park, sit back and spend a relaxing afternoon on the beach. That evening, put on your dancing shoes and enjoy the bustling nightlife of Quepos.
Rise early to set out on a zip lining adventure through the rainforests that surround Quepos. Hike through the forest and glide down during a two hour zip lining excursion. When your feet reach land, have lunch in the forest and plan your relaxing afternoon.
Break away from the group if you wish and partake in self-chosen activities. You will be provided with a list of additional excursions that are available to you. I'll take care of all of the arrangements, so all you have to do is enjoy! If you choose not to partake in additional excursions, the day is yours to enjoy and explore as you wish.
After breakfast at the hotel, choose to spend your morning shopping, relaxing at the beach or exploring the city. In the afternoon, put on your bathing suit and join us for a four-hour boat ride on a 100-foot catamaran, equipped with a bar, two jacuzzis, and two winding water slides. If you're feeling adventurous, you will have the opportunity to dive into the water below to go snorkeling and view some of the exotic fish that live
Spend your last day in Costa Rica exploring, relaxing, shopping, or taking part in other excursions that you may choose. That evening, rejoin your group mates for one last dinner together.
Check out of your hotel, head back to San Jose, and say one last good bye to Costa Rica!
