Jacqueline Sample Itin 2011

 Day 1 --------- Arrive & Drive to Turrialba (Casa Turire)

Today we meet you outside the airport and take you to your first hotel. This is a beautiful hotel located on a lake with views of the active volcano of Turrialba. We will drive through the capital city of San Jose and then make our way Southeast passing by Costa Rica's tallest volcano the Irazu Volcano (we will be just driving pass the base of the volcano). (Meals:  None)

Hold on Kids! (This could be you Jacqueline in your Private Raft)
Day 2 ---------- Raft Pejibaye River and Lunch in Mountain Village (Casa Turire)

Today we will raft the Pejibaye River. This is a great river where you will get the chance to get wet, see the jungle, and be on your private raft. We will go at our own pace and I know the kids will love this river. After the river rafting we will make our way up to a small mountain village where we will have lunch in the home of a locals house. This will give you a chance to see our Sitio de Mata Project and experience some rural tourism in Costa Rica. This is a great experience and we plan on doing local crafts with the kids. The family of the home will teach house how to make the crafts and each of your kids will return to the hotel with their own locally made crafts but made by them personally. At night you will have the chance to enjoy the hotel. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 3 ------------ Drive to Arenal Volcano & Chocolate Tour (Casa Luna Lodge)

You get front row Jacqueline
Did you ever want to know where chocolate came from. Well if you enjoy chocolate than today is the day you will enjoy best. The cacao plant has been a large part of Costa Rican history and today we will be visiting a plantation but actually get a up close look at the process of making chocolate. This is just on the way to the Arenal volcano which happens to be a perfect cone-shaped volcano where you will have great views from your hotel balcony. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 4 ------------ Canyoneering & Nature Hike (Casa Luna Lodge)

Today we will get back to the adventure and go canyoneering. This is an amazing adventure that is filled with fun from start to finish. You will get soaked, splashed, rappel, and just absolutely love this as you expolore one of Costa Rica's most beautiful canyons. This is an adventure for all ages and I can assure you the kids will love you for it. In the afternoon we will give the kids a feel for the rainforest as we take them to a small local reserve that has quite a bit of animals to see.  (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

La Fortuan Falls
Day 5 ------------- Drive to Central Pacific & La Fortuna Falls  (House Rental)


Fist in the morning we will head to La Fortuna Falls just to stretch our legs. This is a real treat. Here you will be staying in one of the most luxurious houses in all of the Pacific, it's name is Casa Belmar. You will not believe this place when you see it and you will have the whole house all to yourselves. There is an apartment attached where your driver/guide will be staying. Todays drive we will leave early and arrive to the house in time to see the beautiful sunset. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 6 -------------- Zipline & Enjoy the Beach (House Rental)

In my opinion this is one of the best ziplines in the country. It also happens to be one that will let the kids go on. There is also a tarzan swing that everyone will enjoy and just a full morning of adventure as we enjoy amazing views of the Pacific coast line. In the evening we can enjoy the beaches. Also there are many little local swim holes from the rivers and little waterfalls that we always enjoy taking our guest to. (Meals: None)

Day 7 --------------- Surf Classes & Relax at Beach or House (House Rental)

Surfs up Jacqueline!
Today we will take on the waves of the Pacific. This is a chance to get out on the boards and enjoy the water. If you want to take a break and head out later no worries we have the boards all day. (Meals: None)

Day 8 ---------------- Visit Manuel Antonio National Park (House Rental)

Today we will spend the morning visiting one of the most popular national parks in the country. It is quite the touristy area and works nice for a half day trip from the house rental you will be in. This is a park that is filled with monkeys and bring your camera because we plan on seeing them. In the evening we will head back to the the house where we have a farewell dinner planned for you. (Meals: Dinner)
