Itinerary

Arrival
Meet and greet at Juan Santamaria International Airport and private transfer to hotel. 

Night at Sleep Inn Paseo Las Damas, Standard Room. 
San Jose – Punta Cocles (B)
Breakfast. Transfer by shuttle bus to Punta Cocles, on the Caribbean coast. 

The fascinating Afro-Caribbean culture, a combination of Jamaican, Italian and Chinese immigrants, predominates in this region and fills the atmosphere with fragrances, tropical rhythms and brilliant colors, which mixes with the daily work of many of the inhabitants on the banana plantations and the ports of Limon and Moin. After the South Pacific, this is the rainiest region in the country and this factor, combined with high temperatures, makes it a very humid area throughout the year. 

The extensive Caribbean plains are beautified by the Pacuare, Estrella, Reventazon and Parismina rivers, which join in some sectors with the Tortuguero canals, of great importance for their scenic splendor and as a site of refuge for the marine turtles to lay their eggs. 

Along this area you can observe small groups of houses among the plantations of cassava, annatto, and bananas, as well as a vast number of beautiful beaches on the southern part of the coast, coral reefs, and protected areas with small trails which permit the access into the heart of the tropical forest. 

In the Costa Rican Caribbean the options are so varied that they satisfy plenty of different tastes and interests of those who visit it, while experiencing the wonders of the swamps, the marine wealth, green lagoons, imposing rivers, wide canals, and exotic beaches. For those who love fishing, diving, surfing and snorkeling, this place is undoubtedly an earthly paradise.

Some suggested optional activities while in Jaco Beach: 

Vista Los Sueños Canopy
The Vista Los Sueños Canopy is a project designed not only as an extreme adventure, but a way to enjoy nature without harming the environment. The property rests on 80 acres of land... 50% of which is primary forest and boasts spectacular views of the Herradura bay and Island, as well as the Nicoya Gulf. This activity takes place in a transitional forest between the dry forest in the North Pacific and the rainforest in the South Pacific, where scarlet macaws, chestnut-mandibled toucans and white-face monkeys are commonly spotted. The adventure starts with a 15-minute ride aboard a specially designed 40 passenger tractor to reach the first zip line. There are 14 cables and 15 platforms, with a total cable distance of 3.5 kilometer including the longest cable in the area. The Canopy Tour operates daily. 

Duration of the tour: 2 hours.
It includes: a 15-minute tractor ride, bilingual guides, 12 cables, 14 platforms, fruits and water.
What to bring? Comfortable clothes and shoes, insect repellent and cameras are optional; professional photography services are provided. 

Visit to Carara National Park
Bordering the Pan-American Highway, this 5,242-hectare park is unique as the Amazonian and Mesoamerican ecosystems converge here to form a distinct biological reserve where the climates of the Pacific dry north meet the humid south coast. With a fantastic array of wildlife on display, the Carara National Park is also one of the few places where visitors can get to see the rare Scarlet Macaws and also ten of the most uncommon and rare trees in the country. The huge trees here are often covered with vines and epiphytes. March and April are ideal months to visit as there is little rain; however, repellent and long pants are always recommended to avoid being bitten by the many insects that live here. 

What to bring? Comfortable clothes and shoes, insect repellent, sun block, hat or visor, camera and binoculars. 

Visit to Pacific Rainforest Adventures Park
This eco-tourism project of 222 acres (90 hectares of forest), will allow visitors to discover the hidden secrets and hanging gardens of the Tropical Forest from a different perspective. This visit includes the hour-long tram ride accompanied by a bilingual naturalist guide (English-Spanish) and a 45 minute guided nature walk. Most of the reserve is covered with primary forest on a steep slope, where massive trees are laden with vines and epiphytes. These giants trees, which can reach 150 feet tall and may be 200 years old or more, spread their branches in a dense canopy that shades the forest floor. Ferns, palms and other underbrush thrive in the under story, where a rippling creek keeps the soil moist year round. In addition to the exuberant plant life, the park is home to white-faced monkeys, spectacled owls, toucans, agoutis (a neotropical rodent with long hind legs), and amphibians and reptiles including several species of frogs and fer-de-lance vipers. Spectacular scarlet macaws may soar over you as you ride the Tram-this area is one of only two spots in Costa Rica where you can see these beautiful red, blue and gold birds, who migrate daily from neighboring Carara National Park to roost in mangroves at the mouth of the Tárcoles River. Visitors can also try the Tranopy tour combining the in-depth forest view of an Aerial Tram with the excitement of a Canopy Tour. 

It includes: Introductory multimedia presentation, guided walking tour, Heliconias Gallery, Medicinal Plant Garden, Snake Exhibition , Aerial Tram and expert naturalist bilingual guide.
What to bring? Comfortable clothes and shoes, insect repellent, sun block and camera.
