Wasim Sample Itin Costa Rica 2011

Day 1 ---- Arrive (Grano de Oro)

Arenal Volcano
Today your guide will meet you at the airport and take you to one of San Jose's most beautiful hotel. This is a small hotel but one of the finest and without a doubt the best resturaunt in town. (Meals: None)

Day 2 ----- Poas & Drive to Arenal (Nayara)

Today you will leave after breakfast and make the drive to the Poas Volcano crater. Here when you arrive you will hike 6 blocks at the top of the volcano to look down into the crater. This is a beautiful stop and your guide will give you and introduction into the cloudforest which will be one of the many different ecosystems you see during your stay here in Costa Rica. After the view of the Poas Volcano crater you will enjoy a beautiful drive to your next hotel known as "Waterfall Alley". Here you will see a number of different waterfalls as you make your way through the cloudforest on your way to the famous Arenal Volcano. The hotel you will be staying in here is our favorite. I have to tell you Wasim I am getting married in August and it is at this hotel where my future wife wants to stay for our honeymoon. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 3 ----- Horseback & Danaus (Nayara)

Nayara Resort
Today you will horseback ride along side one of the most active volcanos on the planet. This ride opens up to beautiful views of the volcan and gives you a real feel for the low lying rainforest that will be surrounding you which is much different than the cloud-forest you were in the day before. After the horseback ride you will make your way to a little private reserve but an excellent spot to see some wildlife. This little reserve is also a great spot of what can be done when an area is reforested. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 4 ----- Birding Cano Negro (Nayara)

Here you will enjoy a very nice day on a calm boat as you travel to Cano Negro which are wetlands in the north of the country that make for some of the best birding in all of Costa Rica. Here you will have the chance to have you guide take you along the river for a few hours and get a chance to see many different species of birds and even mammals such as monkeys. The evening will be spent back in the Nayara Resort relaxing. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 5 ----- Drive Cuna del Angel (Cuna del Angel)

Cloudforest Leaves
Today is a travel day and we will make the drive to the Cuna del Angel hotel in the Central Pacific. This is a nice day of traveling as you will make some stops along the way to keep it interesting. You will be traveling with a private naturalist guide everyday and they can always make the traveling very interesting days. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 6 ----- Whale and Dolphin (Cuna del Angel)

Today you will head out looking for the whales and dolphins. This is a hit or miss type of tour but always a beautiful day on the water. The best part is often looking back on the shoreline from the boat and seeing how the mountain meets the sea. In the afternoon you will have some time to spend at the hotel or in the water or you can even go birding with your guide if you are up for some more birding. (Meals: Breakfast)
