San Jose

Hola! Welcome to Costa Rica! Your adventure begins with a Welcome Meeting at 6pm on Day 1. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. An assortment of galleries, theatres and lively central plazas set among San Jose’s glitzy modern shopping malls make this one of Central America’s most surprising capitals.

San Gerardo de Dota

Transfer to your lodge near San Gerardo do Dota (approx 2.5 hours). Huddled up against the Talamanca Mountain is San Gerardo de Dota, a haven for birdwatchers, hikers, and fishing enthusiasts.

Savegre River Trek

Set off on a four day hike to the Pacific Coast. You will have the chance to pack the smaller, lighter bag you brought with only the essentials you require for the trek. Your main luggage will be transported to the next location after the trek.  Guided mainly by the shores of the Savegre River, trek through cloud forests and lowland rainforests, looking out for Quetzals on the way (Approximately 14 kms - 6 hours trekking) to a big wooden house (multishare accomodation). This is an area few people know about so make the most of the beautifully remote area and the chance to swim in nearby waterfalls. This is the perfect chance to experience authentic Costa Rican rural life, as well be surrounded by the country's rich natural environment.

Savegre River Trek

On day two you will trek a total of 15km - approximately 8 hours. Today you will reach 2200m with some spectacular views. This evening you will hopefully get to try some heart of palm for dinner, a local speciality.

Savegre River Trek

On day three you will cover similar distance to the day before - 15kms trekking for approximately 8 hours. Today you will get to see the Savegre River from a different angle. This is the cleanest river in Costa Rica and one of the cleanest rivers in the world!

Savegre River Trek

On the second last day, trek 16km (approximately 8 hours) to Albergue Los Campesinos. You will be rewarded by getting the chance to swim in one of the waterfalls along the way.

Uvita

Finish the trek in Quepos. Get ready for a day full of adventure, setting out on a canyoneering experience. Take a short hike to your first rappel, which will be down a dry rock face into a canyon, followed by a rappel down a free fall from the cable to a tranquil pond. From here, continue on to a further three rappelling opportunities before hopping in a raft to ride down the Rio Naranjo. The river drops down from the mountains and flows trough tight rocky canyons that boast world class rapids. This is a day to really get the heart pumping. Your local expert guides will keep you safe and ensure that you have a wonderful time.

Drake Bay

Travel by boat to Drake Bay and visit the Punta Río Claro National Wild Life Refuge, located near the Corcovado National Park. For 30 years this paradise was conserved by a Costa Rican family before being handed over to the Costa Rican government. Getting to wildlife-rich reserve is part of the adventure. Spend the night at an amazing lodge in the middle of Corcovado National Park.

Drake Bay

Visit the amazing Corcovado National Park, the second largest in Costa Rica, on a day trip to the Sirena Ranger station. The park is one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth, with 13 different ecosystems in its boundaries – highland cloud forests, lagoons, mangrove swamps and marine habitats just a few.

Carara National Park / San Jose
