#2 Lisa Sample Itin: June 18th - June 25th

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

We will meet you outside the airport and drive you to the beautiful Cuna del Angel Hotel. I thought of this hotel for your group because they have two very different types of rooms. One type is very luxurious and the others are still clean and nice but just not as fancy in which case not as expensive. All rooms get access the the beautiful pool and restuarant which is one of the finest in the country. (Meals: None)

Surf Classes
Day 2 ----- Zipline, Tarzan Swing, & Surf Classes (Cuna del Angel)

Today you will wake up to the sound of the jungle and enjoy an amazing breakfast at the Cuna del Angel. After you are done with your Costa Rican coffee we will make our way to the zipline. This is an incredible zipline one of my favorites in the country for two reasons. It is on a ridge 1,000ft above sea-level and it has a tarzan swing that is just amazing that makes you feel as if you are out over the 1,000ft drop. After the zipping and swinging in the morning we will go to the beach and take some surf classes. This is a great day of surfing and a chance to surf some great waves of Costa Rica. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 3 ----- Perfect Surfing Skills (Cuna del Angel)

Today is your day to perfect your surfing skills. You can relax on the beach and read a book or just get ready for the next couple of days of adventure we have planned for you. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 4 ----- Hike  to Cavern & Rappel Waterfall  (Sleep Behind a Waterfall)

Snoozing behind a Waterfall
To this day probably one of the most amazing places I have ever seen and an area that few tourist that come to Costa Rica get the chance to see. If you just want an all out slap in the face with natural beauty then this is the place to get it. We will hike in for about 1 1/2 hours and it is a nice hike. Pretty steep and I've taken kids as young as six and they made it no problem.  We will hike to where you will be sleeping which is behind a waterfall. We will be rappeling the same waterfall and everything is set up for you when you arrive. It is not roughing it as all your meals are prepared and there are very nice bathroooms even with toilets and sinks. The rappel is a thrilling experience walking over the side of a waterfall. After the rappel we hike take a short hike to Diamante falls but we will be at the top of it which is Costa Rica's tallest free falling waterfall that measures 600ft!  (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 5 ----- Hike to Pools and Jumping Rock (Casa Turire)

Hammock Area at River Camp Site
Today those that just want to sit and enjoy the area in the caver behind the waterfall can relax and those that want to take another little hike to more waterfalls and pools where we jump off a 30ft high rock into a beautiful pristine pools surrounded by jungle can join us for the hike (I know that is where I will be). After the hike we will have one last amazing meal in the cavern and then make our way out. We will then spend the afternoon driving over Costa Rica's tallest mountain range getting up to almost 12,000ft. We will arrive to an area that is called the Paramo which is known in tropical countries and quite a neat area. After we make our decend from the Paramo we will arrive to the beautiful hotel of Casa Turire. Here we will have some time to relax and just enjoy the pool where you have a perfect view of the Turrialba Volcano which is smoking. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 6 ------ Raft Pacuare River to Camp (Camp on River)

Pacuare Canyon
We will get up and enjoy the excellent breakfast that is offered by Casa Turire and then make our way up into the mountains where we will put in the Pacuare River and get ready for our two day rafting adventure. National Geographic has this river listed as one of the top 5 rivers on the planet. It is filled with primary rainforest, canyons, and waterfalls. Without a doubt the best river in Costa Rica just writing this makes me want to go tomorrow unfortunately we dont have a trip till another week, ugh! We will stop along the way where we will make lunch for you and then make our way to the camp. This is tents but it is a beautiful area and all the tents are set up, above ground. Very nice kitchen, bathrooms, and social area with hammocks and views downstream of the river. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 7 ------ Raft Pacuare Canyon & Drive to Grano de Oro (Grano de Oro)

We will get up to the sound of nature. After we get breakfast and our load of Costa Rican coffee we will head downstream to the famous Pacuare Canyon. Here we will visit some of the more famous rapids of the Pacuare River. This scenic area is what makes it one of the top on the planet. After we take out of the river we will make the drive back to the San Jose area and spoil you for the night in the Grano de Oro Hotel. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 8 ------ Fly Home!!!

 Unfortunately no rafting, surfing, rappeling today just a ride to the airport. (Meals: Breakfast)
