When it comes to natural wonders there is very little that Costa Rica doesn't offer visitors. Experience spectacular volcanic activity in Arenal Volcano National Park, explore the unique cloud forests on the world famous Monteverde Sky Walk and kayak through the natural paradise of Tamarind. Experience all the highlights of Costa Rica on this 11-night trip flying with Air France.
Landing in San Jose and start your tour of the scenic capital. At 1,253 metres above sea-level this metropolitan city sits in a high valley between green volcanic mountains offer visitors amazing views. With beautiful 19th century architecture buildings to admire, independently owned coffee shops brewing local beans to visit, several parks and museums to explore, there’s no chance you’ll miss an opportunity to enjoy authentic Costa Rican culture.
Leaving the capital your next stop is the lush Cloud Forest of Monteverde. This area is known as one of the most outstanding wildlife refuges in the New World Tropics. This environment creates a constant game of drizzle and warm sunshine; a combination that makes Monteverde the most famous cloud forest in the world. It is called a cloud forest rather than a rainforest because of its altitude: as the high-altitude forest juts up through the clouds. Enjoy a free day here to explore the cloud forest region and experience optional activities such as flying across canopy ziplines, walking across suspended bridges through the forest canopy, or go horseback riding in the hills.
When the sun goes down you’ll start your Coffee Tour with a Twilight Nature Walk. Experiencing the peaceful darkness of the Cloud Forest is both an eerie yet thrilling experience as more than 60% of the Cloud Forest life is awake at this time. Your guided tour will take you to Don Juan Coffee Estate to spot the different types of mammals, insects, amphibians and reptiles. One of the highlights of this walk will be seeing the dart frogs waking up and observing them as they go about their nightly business with their bright colors and night chants.
Stay in the lively beach town of Tamarindo on Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast. Tamarindo has some of the best beaches on Costa Rica's Pacific coastline. Relax and unwind or make the most of the watersports available here. On a day excursion head towards the protected reserve of the Tamarindo Mangrove and Estuary where you can kayak through a natural paradise. Paddling through the mangroves allows for visitors to observe the different species of animals without disturbing them. Keep your eye out for brown pelicans, magnificent frigate birds, ibis and ospreys, as well as two types of monkeys, iguanas and American crocodiles!
