    Useful Information about itinerary

    It is a trip where we will organize everything taking into account your needs and tastes. But we do advance that it is a trip where you can enjoy the best of Costa Rica. From the most popular destinations to those that few travelers still know.
    In Manuel Antonio we always include the walk through the National Park and a day of active tourism. Through these activities one is left with something more than the ¨Playas de Manuel Antonio¨ because we want you to know the lesser known places of the Park and the best way to do it is on a day of excursion and fun.
    We highlight Monteverde for being the best place to know the longest bridges in Central America and a great Canopy that will leave you with your mouth open.
    In a country full of volcanoes, the trek through Rincon de la Vieja will take you through fumaroles, waterfalls and traces of lava in still active lands.
    To get to the Caribbean of Costa Rica we will first approach to the capital of San Jose, from there to take a flight to Limón. In the Caribbean we slow down the pace of the trip, relax a bit and enter the spiral of the Caribbean rhythm. A tour of the beaches and national park of Cahuita and a free day for which we will send you all the documentation on what to do in the area.
    From Cahuita to Bocas del Toro we will take you in a private transfer and the driver will also accompany you to carry out all the necessary procedures at the border. Once in Almirante, we will also pass you on a boat until you reach Bocas del Toro where the resort companions await you for the transfer.
    There are 16 very complete days to enjoy the greenest Costa Rica in Monteverde, the most popular in Manuel Antonio, the most active in Rincón de la Vieja, and the most multiracial in Cahuita. With the final climax of a few days of paradisiacal Panama Beaches - Bocas del Toro.
