The mindset you have on the open road is the same whether you're close to home or miles away. It's a feeling of freedom, a feeling of simplicity, and a feeling that taps into travel at its core: Sometimes, you just need to be on the move.

Take control of your wanderlust and cruise down to Costa Rica for a seven-night Escape for two with Elegant Adventures. During your weeklong trip, you'll rev your exploration engines through the Arenal Volcano and Manuel Antonio regions with your own Hyundai Tucson or similar two-wheel drive SUV ($1,634).

Once you buckle down in San Jose, adjust the driver's seat of your rented ride—and program your optional GPS system—so that you can pull up to Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa in style. Set on 27 rolling acres in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano, this five-star haven features secluded thermal springs, blossoming gardens, and an indulgent spa.

Park your belongings inside your suite, and then give yourself the green light to spend the next three days in complete relaxation. Wake up from your king-size bed to sit out on your terrace with coffee in hand, savor included breakfasts before a swim in the springs, and get a massage with your $30 credit after a rafting trip with the hotel's adventure tours (an additional fee).

Before you motor to the next destination, stop by Arenal Volcano National Park to see Costa Rica's most active lava show up close. You can even filter through the reserve's dense rainforests at fast-lane speeds as you rappel down waterfalls on a trip with Pure Trek Canyoning. Then, leave it all in your rearview mirror as you journey toward Parador Resort & Spa in Manuel Antonio for a four-night stay.

Walk from your car to the hotel's bar for a welcome cocktail made from local brands. Later, signal to your copilot that it's time to retreat to a Tropical Room that boasts views of the ocean, jungle, or garden from a private balcony. Stretch your legs in the adults-only pool, and then pump the brakes for a massage or body scrub with your $50 spa credit.

After a complimentary breakfast, honk if you see vibrant wildlife during a two-for-one jaunt through Manuel Antonio National Park. Then, turn your headlights on for a Nocturnal Nature Walk Tour for two.

"The park's clearly marked trail system winds through rainforest-backed tropical beaches and rocky headlands, and the views across the bay to the pristine outer islands are unforgettable," says Lonely Planet.

Hit your speed limit of adventure when you fill up your travel tank with this Escape.

  • "[Costa Rica] is drawing new generations of explorers with more lasting treasures: smoldering volcanoes, misty cloud forests, rare wildlife and bird species, and a surfeit of beaches that are the gateway to world-class surfing, diving, and sportfishing."
