Arrive at San Jose International Airport, then catch the hotel shuttle or an Uber to our hotel, the San Jose Marriott (or similar). If your arrival is early enough, you can enjoy wandering around San Juan’s Historical area. Check-in for the hotel will be at 3pm. We’ll get together tonight for dinner and drinks with Corey and Sami, your WorldStrides Tour Director and the rest of the guests who will be traveling with you around Costa Rica.



After a delicious breakfast, provided by the hotel, we’ll pack up and get on our private motorcoach to make our way to Arenal. Along the way, we’ll stop and do a hike at the La Paz Waterfall Gardens & Nature Park. The Park features five waterfalls and the largest animal sanctuary in Costa Rica. It is by far the best place to see wildlife in Costa Rica. Here you’ll be able to catch your first glimpse of jaguars, pumas, sloths, monkeys, hummingbirds, snakes, frogs, and a lot more.


Balsa River

It’s time for the next adventure! After going back to the main route, our river guides will pick you up to drive we reach the Balsa River, where our river experts will give you lifejackets, your paddle, and a helmet. After a quick safety speech, we start to down the river. The descent takes about 2 hours, where we enjoy over 30 thrilling rapids, lush vegetation, wildlife, tropical fruits and nice water temperature.


Costa Rican Eco System

After dinner at the famous El Jardin, see the nocturnal side of Monteverde Cloud Forest on a guided hike, searching for the animals that only come out at night. From grey foxes to spiders and reptiles, much of Monteverde’s wildlife can only be spotted after dark; with an experienced guide to lead the way, you can safely experience the sights and sounds of the nighttime forest.



Monteverde is famous for adventure activities, including today’s Zip-line and Canopy Tour. Imagine yourself gliding along a canopy zip line high above the rainforest - the thrill, the adrenalin, the extraordinary views! This experience features 9 regular ziplines, 2 Superman ziplines (including the longest in Costa Rica), 1 hammock bridge, 1 rappel and 1 mega Tarzan swing!



You will ride an ATV or UTV through the Costa Rican Tropical Dry Forest, down roads & trails, over mountains, through rivers and puddles (in the rainy season) and visit beautiful beaches. You will see a wide range of wild animals like monkeys, armadillos, iguanas, and many species of birds along the way. Next, we'll head out on a snorkeling trip that will take you to one of Costa Rica’s best snorkel spots - with some of the world’s finest volcanic rock formations, which is very rich in marine life.
