DAY BY DAY DESCRIPTIONS:

 

Day 1               RAINFOREST ADVENTURE

 

We begin our experience, driving through the unforgettable rain forest of Braulio Carrillo National Park, one of the most important rainforest reserves of Costa Rica. Then we will be ready to enjoy a relaxing boat ride on the Sarapiqui River, just sit back and observe the wildlife that is around you. The monkeys, iguanas, crocodiles and the variety of birds will allow you to relax and concentrate on the scenery. During the boat ride our guide will also explain about life style of the friendly people that live at the river margins.

As we continue our experience, we will walk at Selva Verde’s eco lodge property which is heaven for nature enthusiasts, hikers, bird and wildlife watchers, scientists and students, as well as adventure seekers. Nestled in the North-Central Lowlands of Costa Rica, Selva Verde’s private reserve protects over 500 acres of primary and secondary rainforest. The rainforest surrounding Selva Verde provides habitat for many species such as: 300 birds, 120 mammals, 48 amphibians, 89 reptile species, more than 10,000 species of insects, 330 species of trees and countless plantses. Costa Rica is home of 5% of the world’s known species.

After  lunch we will continue to famous Rainforest Aerial Tram , a sanctuary which shelters an eco-touristic and research park unlike any in the world... . The Rain Forest Aerial Tram – Atlantic is a 475-hectare (1,200-acre) private reserve, it shares a 10 km border with Braulio Carrillo National Park and constitutes a buffer zone between the park and the farming lands.

The park´s multiple gateways take you to each unique rainforest dimension: flights above the canopy treetop, guided nature hikes for all levels of physical ability,  a multi-colored Frog and Butterfly Garden, a serpentarium and bird watching.

Day 2
            ISLA TORTUGA

The Gulf of Nicoya has a beautiful archipelago that is home to seabirds, white sands, and the flora and fauna that make our Central Pacific coast so special. Within this group of islands, we find the world-famous Isla San Lucas, site of the highest security prison in our history, where human rights did not exist for the prisoners. The time when the prison was in use is known as the dark age of our justice system.

Located 12 miles from Puntarenas, near Kuru and across from Playa Organo, Isla Tortuga (Turtle Island) has an area of 120 hectares with 4 main hills and 500 meters of beachfront. It is maintained as a park and has won the Bandera Azul (blue flag), a distinction conferred in our country for excellent ecological conservation.

All of these ingredients combine to make our trip one of the country's great attractions. The archipelago amazes us from the yacht on our way to our destination: the paradise of Isla Tortuga (Turtle Island). Here, we spend approximately 4 hours during which you can enjoy a variety of activities including canopy, hiking, kayaking and snorkeling, or simply relax in the sun while our staff prepares an exquisite buffet lunch.
