Honeymoon Adventure Costa Rica

Waterfall Rappel
Day 1 -------- Arrive and Drive to Pacific Coast (Cuna del Angel)

Today we will meet you at the airport. We will then drive to the Pacific coast and stay at a beautiful hotel for just one night which will put us in position for the amazing adventure of day 2. (Meals: None)

Day 2 -------- Enter Cave (Sleep in the Cave)

Today we drive into the mountains for one hour and then take it off road for a bit as we make our way to the base camp to where we begin the hike into the Diamante ridge. This is a hike that will take us to a waterfall that we rappel and then we end up sleeping behind the waterfall for the night. This is an amazing experience and all your meals and everything are done for you. There is a bathroom and shower and it is not roughing it by any means. We will also make our way to visit the Diamante falls which will put us at the top of a 600ft edge which will give you a few butterflies in the tummy.  (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

River Hammocks and Camp Site


Day 3 -------- Leave Cave & Drive to Turrialba (Casa Turire)

Today we will leave the cave and drive to Turrialba which is a beautiful drive over Costa Rica's tallest mountain range. We will first spend the morning hiking around the cavern some more where we will visit some pools and jump off a 30ft waterfall. This is a great way to end our stay here and then we get lunch and hike out. You will be staying at the Casa Turire Hotel which is the perfect honeymoons spot. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 4 -------- Enter River (Camp at River)

View from River Camp
Today we will take the bumpy road to the put in that is bit farther up stream than the normal put in and that is because we plan on doing a 2 day rafting trip. We will be rafting for around 2 hours on day 1 and will be camping at a beautiful camp-site where all you need is the hammock that is strung there with great veiws of the river downstream. Again this is not roughing although you will be in a tent you have great bathrooms, we cook the meals, and it is truly a special spot waking up in the virgin rainforest. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 5 -------- Leave River Drive to Arenal (Nayara)

Today we hit some of the largest rapids on the river. We will plan to get an early start and make our way down the Pacuare canyon. This is a beautiful run and there should be a nice water level coming in November. After we take out we will make the drive to the Nayara Resort where you will absolutely love. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 6 -------- Zipline & Nature Reserve (Nayara)

Arenal Volcano
If the adventures before were not enough than you hanging from a cable that is 700ft high with views of the rainforest below might do the trick. This is a great day of zipping on 8 different cables with unbeatable views. After the zipline we will take you to a small private nature reserve to test our luck finding some wildlife in the area. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 7 -------- Canyoneering  (Nayara)

This is growing to be one of the more popular adventures. The canyoneering in Costa Rica is a fun sport that actually takes you rappeling but the best part is when you use your hands and feet to make your way down the canyon jumping over rocks, jumping into pools, and just making a day out of being in the jungle. After this adventure we can head back to the hotel to relax or find something else to keep the excitement going. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Canyoneering Adventure
Day 8 -------- Fly Home!
