The Destinations
Natural beauty abounds no matter where you are in Costa Rica's "Gold Coast"—but the mountain paradise at the north base of Rincón de la Vieja volcano truly glitters. Here, tropical birds sing and sunlight filters through the canopy to signal the dawn in the jungle. Roaring waterfalls, the Arenal Volcano, and steaming green hot springs quench travelers' thirst for soothing—and visually stunning—experiences. Nicaragua's golden sunsets and steamy lagoons are the stuff of legends. "The Land of Lakes and Volcanoes," this Central American destination is home to the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world—covering 3,200 square miles—and 18 active volcanoes.

Come experience "pura vida" on an eight-day adventure for two people through Costa Rica and Nicaragua courtesy of Costa Rica Monkey Tours:

The Itinerary
day 1: Board an airport shuttle for included transport to your hotel. Take the balance of the day to recover from your tip and gear up for your upcoming adventure.
Overnight at Liberia Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.

day 2: Make your way to the Arenal Volcano town of La Fortuna after breakfast for a full-day adventure, including a river-rafting adventure on the Balsa River and thermal waters and hot springs experience.
Overnight at Baldi Hot Springs Resort & Spa. Breakfast and lunch provided.

day 3: Embark on a journey to the picturesque Rincón de la Vieja region in Guanacaste. Here, on the slopes of the volcano, you'll spend the day zip lining through the forest canopy, traversing the land on a horseback riding tour, at the Mystery Waterfall, and lounging by the natural pools, a sauna, and a volcanic mud bath.
Overnight at Hotel Borinquen. Breakfast and lunch provided.

day 4: Today, you'll depart for the Nicaraguan border and the city of Granada—bursting with sherbet-hued Baroque churches and lively outdoor markets. Founded in the early 16th century, the historic city proudly bears the nickname, "The Great Sultan" in homage to its Moorish namesake in Spain. Begin on Lake Nicaragua for a boat tour of the channels of Las Isetas, small islands made by volcanic material. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure, exploring the city's churches, museums, and markets by foot or by horse-drawn carriage.
Overnight at Hotel Colonial. Breakfast and lunch provided.

days 5: Begin your morning with an impressive panoramic view of Granada from the observatory of La Merced Church. Then, head to the Masaya Volcano National Park—where roads and trails snake through five volcanoes. Hop back on the road and head back to Costa Rica. On the way, you'll stop by the artisan town of Catarina for some shopping and San Juan Del Sur, one of the best beach spots in Nicaragua.
Overnight at Hotel Villas Playa Samara. Breakfast provided.

day 6 and 7: Take these next two days to relax and enjoy some of Costa Rica's highest-rated beaches in the idyllic seaside town of Samara.
Two nights at Hotel Villas Playa Samara. Breakfast provided.

day 8: Bid farewell to Costa Rica as you board your included transfer to the airport for your separately booked flight back home.
Breakfast provided.

  • "...look out over gorgeous colonial Granada and her hundreds of tiny tropical isletas (islets), across the slender isthmus pockmarked with crater lakes to where the Pacific breaks hollow on sandy cove beaches."

    -- Lonely Planet
  • "Costa Rica is sometimes referred to as the Switzerland of Central America because of its comfortable lifestyle, peaceful democracy, and overwhelming natural beauty...The waves are prime, the beauty is staggering, and the sluggish pace seductive."

    -- Lonely Planet
