March Break Costa Rica

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,502

Central America’s rainforest wilderness is ready to lift your winter blues.


This 8-day escape to Costa Rica is sure to elevate your March break. Zip through the rainforests of the Arenal volcano, then unwind all that adrenaline on one of the country’s best beaches.

After a night spent in San Jose, depart for Arenal, Costa Rica’s best adventure spot. Zip-lining through the rainforest is a popular pastime here, along with hiking, and white water rafting. If all that sounds far too active, it’s equally satisfying to explore the forest and the volcano at your own pace. An afternoon tour will take you to the highlights, including Arenal Lake and a wide variety of plant and animal life. But you’ll also have time to explore on your own.

Afterwards, relax on the beach at Puntarenas, on the Pacific coast, before returning to San Jose for departure.

After breakfast, your private driver will meet you and transfer you to the town of La Fortuna at the base of the famous Arenal Volcano. On route enjoy your FREE visit to the Poas Volcano & La Paz Waterfall gardens

The active Poás Volcano has one of the largest craters in the world - 1.5 Km / 0.94 miles wide. Visit the crater's look outpoint and wander through the cloud forest at the nearby Botos Lagoon, a former crater which has since filled with water. The lookout provides a bird's-eye view not only 320 m (1050 ft) down into the bowels of the volcano, with its greenish sulfuric pool, but also a magnificent view of the northern lowlands.

Following the visit to the volcano, continue to the La Paz Water Fall Garden for a scrumptious lunch and tour. Once finished the walk, your guide will transfer you to the hotel.
