Dr. Ramos Sample Itin Costa Rica

Day 1 ---------- Arrive and Drive to Manuel Antonio (Arenas del Mar)

Today you will fly into the San Jose Airport (SJO). We will make the two hour drive to the area of Manuel Antonio. Here you will stay in connecting rooms with amazing views of the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the most luxurious places on the Pacific and surrounded by rainforest and your private beach. The place is called Arenas del Mar. Here you will hear the waves crashing all night as the rooms are located on a ridge just above the ocean. You have your own private beach from the resort. (Meals: None)

Day 2 ---------- Surf Classes and Beach Day at Manuel Antonio (Arenas del Mar)

Today we'll test the kids' surfing skills. We do a class that gives them the basic instruction of what to do and what not to do when surfing. Costa Rica is known for surfing and the kids will have some serious bragging rights after taking on some of the waves here. If they are not up for surfing no worries we can just make it a day at the beach and hotel or some other activities in the area. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 3 ---------- National Park Visit and Time at Beach or Hotel (Arenas del Mar)

Today we will visit the National Park of Manuel Antonio. Here we plan on getting upclose with the monkeys and sloths of the area. This is an easy hike that takes just over an hour. After the hike through the park we can stay in the park and relax on some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. In the evening it is back to the resort where you can visit the spa, or just hang out at the pool. In the evening we can take you to one of excellent restaurants in the area. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 4 ---------- Travel to Villa Blanca Cloud Forest and Night Hike (Villa Blanca Hotel)

We will be leaving the beach today and heading to the middle of the country. We will be on our way to the Arenal Volcano but we will spend the night first in the Villa Blanca Cloudforest. This is an amazing hotel that was actually the home farm of an ex-president. They have designed it into being one of the nicest places around for the cool mountains of the cloud-forest. We will arrive just after lunch and have time to relax. In the evening we will be taking off on a night hike. This is quite the adventure walking through the cloud-forest at night with a chance to see the different animals that come out at night. The restaurant here is one of the best in the country in our opinion. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 5 ---------- Zipline in the morning & Travel to The Springs Arenal (The Springs Resort)

Today we will get an early start after breakfast and head to the zipline adventure. This is a great morning spent flying through the trees. This zipline is one of our favorites because it has a tarzan swing and a superman zip. The superman allows you to lay down on you belly and fly across the rainforest like superman on a cable that is 600mts. In the evening we'll arrive at The Springs Resort, a new luxurious hotel with every amenity. (Meals: None)

Day 6 ---------- Raft Sarapiqui River (The Springs Resort)

Today we will head out whitewater rafting. This is a great day of adventure for the kids. We will be on a small river but with some good rapids and everyone will get soaked. There is a good chance we will see some animals along the way also. In the evening it is back to The Springs Resort to relax in their many different hotsprings. (Meals: Lunch)

Day 7 ---------- Relax at the Springs Resort (The Springs Resort)

Today is your day just to relax. We can take you guys out to visit a waterfall or a nature reserve but we will leave the day open. There is lots to do at the Resort and the slide they have in the pool can keep most kids busy for days. (Meals: None)

Day 8 ---------- Travel to San Jose Airport and Fly Home!

Today we will make the 2 hour trip to the San Jose Airport. (Meals: None)
