Sample Itin Jamie Capezzutto 2011

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

Pacuare River Rafting Adventure
We meet you at the airport and your private guide and driver will be waiting for you to drive you to the Turrialba area. The drive to Casa Turire Hotel which is one of my favorite places is beautiful and you will pass by two volcanos and drive through the capital city of San Jose and then get out into the country scenic country-side. This hotel is a great place to relax after a long day of travel and it puts us close to the river. (Meals: None)

Day 2 ------ Raft Pacuare River & Drive to Arenal Volcano (Nayara Resort)
I have heard people say this is the "Best Day Ever". You get the Pacuare River and the Nayara Resort all in the same day which is pretty hard to beat. The Pacuare River is listed as one of the top 5 rivers on the planet and it is a chance to see the inside of the rainforest on a 3 hour run. The river is class III & IV and with your group of 6 that is a perfect size to fill the raft. Don't worry you get a guide also. After the river rafting we will make our way to the Arenal Volcano which is a perfectly cone-shaped volcano. The Nayara Resort is rated without question the best hotel by tripadvisor in the area and I know you will love this place. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 3 ------ Zipline & La Fortuna Falls (Nayara Resort)

Arenal Volcano View from your Room
Today you visit the zipline which this one happens to be the best in the country with views of the active volcano. The drive to the zipline is around 25 minutes and you get to go to the other side of the volcano which gives you a chance to get a view of the lake. The area of the zipline is primary rainforest and the zip cables go from mountain top to mountain top and make for an amazing adventure for all. After the zipline we will hike to La Fortuna Falls which is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country. Don't forget your camera today because this is a gorgous place for a next years Christmas card. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 4 ----- Canyoneering Adventure & HotSprings (Nayara Resort)
Jamie gets front row!
Today you will enjoy the adventure of canyoneering where you hike and rappel down different parts of a canyon
 and get wet. It is funny most people after doing this they were looking most forward to the rappels but after doing it the part they liked best was everything before and after the rappels which is hiking down using all fours and hopping into little pools and just getting soaked in a beautiful canyon in the middle of the rainforest. After the 
canyoneering we will take everyone to just relax. This will feel well deserved after your 3 days of adventure. We will enjoy dinner at the hotsprings and just sitting around in the thermal waters which from what I hear make you look 15 years younger. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 5 ------ Drive to Central Pacific (Arenas del Mar or Cuna del Angel)

Today we will make the drive to the Central Pacific which happens to be where the jungle meets the sea. This is a beautiful area. We have the option of staying at Arenas del Mar which will bring the cost a little bit higher than last years itin but it is quite the place. If you wanted to still stay in a nice place but try and bring the cost down a little we have the option of driving south for another 45 minutes and staying at Cuna del Angel. The Arenas del Mar is located in a touristy area and Cuna del Angel is more isolated in it's own area. (Meals: Breakfast)

Surfs Up!
Day 6 ------ Surf Classes & Beach Time (Arenas del Mar or Cuna del Angel)

Today we will be riding the waves on the Pacific. You will get a chance to take a short class on the do's and do not's of surfing and then it is out to the ocean. The water in great here in the Pacific and is not cold like in California. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 7 ------- Beach Day & Relax (Arenas del Mar or Cuna del Angel)

If you are reading a book today would be the day to finish. You will enjoy a day at the beach just relaxing under the sun. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 8 -------- Drive to the Airport and Fly Home!
Anybody seen Jamie?

Today you will make the 2 1/2 hour drive back to the airport. If you stay at Cuna del Angel it will be around 45 minutes longer to get you back to the airport. (Meals: Breakfast)
