Day 1 ------ Arrive & Drive to Central Pacific (Villas Rio Mar)

Today we will meet you outside the airport and then be on our way to the Central Pacific. You will have around a 2 1/2 hour drive from the airport. Depending on your flight time we will get you to the Pacific for a very nice sunset. (Meals: None)

Day 2 ------ Enter the Cave (Sleep Behind Waterfall)

We will waste no time on the adventure. We will make a 20 minute drive into the mountains and from there it is time to hike. We will have about a 2 hour hike that is on rough terrain. It is well worth getting there though as you will get the chance to rappel down a waterfall and sleep behind a waterfall. This is one of the most amazing places Costa Rica has to offer and a bit off the beaten path. You will also be rappeling a 120ft waterfall today.  (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

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

Today we will hike to some pools where you can have the option to jump off a waterfall into the pools below. After we hike out of the cave we will drive to the area of Turrialba. This will take us over Costa Rica's tallest mountain range and a chance to see some of the best views of this small country. When we arrive we will be at the Casa Turire hotel which is a small boutique hotel excellent for honeymoons. From the hotel you will have perfect views of the active and smoking volcano of Turrialba. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)

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

Back to the jungle and in our opinion the most beautiful part of Costa Rica. Today we enter the Pacuare River where we will be doing an over night camping trip. This is not roughing it by any means and the campsite is very nice. It also happens to be on what National Geographic calls one of the top 5 scenic rivers on the planet. We will get an early start and spend all morning on the river and the evening at the campsite just relaxing in a hammock. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 5 ------ Leave Pacuare & Drive to Caribbean (Almonds & Corals)

Today we take out of Pacuare but first we have to raft the Pacuare Canyon which has some of the best class IV rapids you can find. This is a great adventure and a chance to spend another day in the jungle and on the river. Also since you said you wanted to see some animals on this trip we are taking you to the Ecolodge that has the most animals you can hope to find anywhere in Costa Rica. This also happens to be where I would opt to stay if I had to pick a place to stay in Costa Rica. It is a true ecolodge and a very nice touch of luxury. It shows that it is a true ecolodge because the animals call it home also. It is an amazing place where you will literally have primary forest, sloths, monkeys, and everything else just outside your door. Also it is just steps from the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean. (Meals: Breakfast & Dinner)

Day 6 ------ Tree Rappel and Relax at Beach (Almonds & Corals)

Today is a different kind of adventure as you get more time to trek through the jungle and get an upclose look at some of Costa Rica's most beautiful trees. We will be making our way through the canopy of the trees but with ropes. This is a great adventure and the evening can be spent just relaxing at the beach of the hotel. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)

Day 7 ------ Relax at Hotel or Visit Indigenous Tribe (Almonds & Corals)

Today you can relax at the Almonds & Corals or if you are up for it I am always willing to visit the local indigenous tribe of the Bribri. They are some of the most special people in all of Costa Rica with a willingness to show off their ancient knowledge in the areas of medicinal plants and living sustainably in the jungle. A great day can be made just seeing how they live and going deep into the reservation. (Meals: Breakfast & Dinner)

Day 8 ------ Fly Home!

Today we will make our way to the airport. Depending on your flight time we will probably be getting an early start but if you have an afternoon flight it would work best for today. (Meals: Breakfast)
