We’ll take a boat trip to journey to the Sarapiquí area and then visit a local, family-owned, pineapple farm, where a guided tour of the farm will highlight the history and cultivation of the pineapple industry.  Next, we’ll head to Arenal, where you’ll have some free time in the afternoon to spend at your resort’s pool, hot-spring-fed jacuzzi, or enjoy a nearby nature trail, before later having dinner together at the hotel.

Day 6:
Arenal Volcano National Park,

You’ll have some free time this morning before we depart for a guided visit to Arenal Volcano National Park.

Then, we’ll take a walking tour of the town La Fortuna de San Carlos, which, among many other things, delivers spectacular views of the active Arenal Volcano! In the evening, we’ll drive to the famous Tabacón Hot Springs, for a relaxing dip in the naturally flowing thermal mineral springs before enjoying dinner onsite.

Leaving Arenal, we’ll take a scenic drive to the Monteverde district, where a stunning tour awaits!

It’s an unforgettable experience!

First, we’ll visit Sarchi, a local village known for its artists and their famous, hand-painted oxcarts. Then, we’ll stop in Grecia, where you’ll see the ‘metal church’. Imported from Belgium to Puerto Limón in 1897, it was transported by oxcart from a previous site in the plaza and reconstructed where it stands today. Finally, we’ll travel to San José, where you’ll have the evening to enjoy the capital as you wish.
