Sleeping Behind a Waterfall
July 4th Day 3 ------ Snorkel in Parque Ballena National Park (Villa Rio Mar)

Today it will be a chance to snorkel in the amazing Parque Ballena. A boat will take you out and you will have the chance to see some different species of fish and marine life during your time in the water and maybe even some of the humpback whale. (Meals: Breakfast)

July 4th Day 4 ------- Enter the Cave (Sleep Behind a Waterfall)

This is one of the most amazing adventures you will ever experience. It is quite the hike to get into the cave and we have made the hike with kids at the age of 7 so we have no problem with taking an 8 yr old. It is around a 1 1/2 hour hike through beautiful forest and the final destination is one of Costa Rica's most beautiful and unheard of places. We will be sleeping behind a waterfall for the night with no bugs and just the perfect setting as everything is set up for you. It is not roughing it by any means. We supply all meals, there is a shower, and all your towels and linens. We will also do a rappel of the waterfall we plan on sleeping behind. All of your meals are included today. Take a look at the video for a better idea:

July 5th Day 5 -------- Hike to Pools and then drive to Turrialba (Turrialba Lodge)

Today we will hike to the pools which make for the perfect swimming area under another beautiful waterfall. We will also see the tallest waterfall in Costa Rica which is the Diamante waterfall being at the top of this 600ft falls is quite the moment. Dont worry we have it roped off and no getting too close to the edge. After the hike out of the cave we will then drive to the Turrialba area over Costa Rica's tallest mountain range where we will cross an interesting area called the Paramo which is a high elevation area portion of the tropics. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

July 6th Day 6 ----------  Whitewater Rafting and visit Local village and make crafts (Turrialba Lodge)

Today we will take you on a whitewater rafting trip you will not forget. We will visit the famous Pacuare which National Geographic has as one of the top 5 on the planet. We will raft a section that we use for families with small kids. We will not be rafting what they call the Pacuare canyon which has the larger rapids. Don't worry it is still a great adventure and everyone will get soaked. After the adventure we plan on making a stop in a local village where we will visit the famous "Dona Fressy" who is a master at making crafts out of recycled goods. The kids will love the visit and a great learning stop and a chance to spend some time with the locals. We will also enjoy dinner at Dona Fressy's as she is quite the cook. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)
