An incredible Costa Rica tour, from San José to Sarapiquí rainforest and Arenal Volcano, plus a blissful beach stay, excursions and travel

One of the most bio-diverse and voluptuously green nations on the planet, Costa Rica seduces visitors with exotic wildlife and phenomenal scenery. Covered in a dense mass of rainforest and fringed by soft sands, this Central American Eden is heaven for intrepid travellers.

Arriving in the metropolis of San José, you'll spend your first two nights at the Holiday Inn Express San José Forum, where you'll find yourself exploring a coffee plantation, Grecia’s metal church and Sarchi’s arts and crafts factories before moving on to the lush rainforest of Sarapiquí, heading out on a thrilling river rafting excursion en route.

Next, you’ll cross the Cloud Forest of the Braulio Carrillo National Park for a stay in the heart of the forest, with two nights at Pozo Azul. Here, you’ll have the chance to take to the treetops on a zip line, or go on a nature walk, a rappel tour or a horseback ride through the stunning landscape, before heading onto dreamy Arenal.

You'll journey westwards to La Fortuna, where you'll spend two nights at Magic Mountain Hotel, taking in views of Arenal Volcano's smoking mouth. Here, you can hike to the Arenal Volcano National Park, where you can witness the volcano up close, and you'll explore the rainforest's canopy with a visit to the hanging bridges of Sky Walk.

Your next four nights will be spent blissing out on Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches at the Tango Mar Beachfront Boutique Hotel in picturesque Tambor. Clear sands meet azure seas at this paradisal resort, where you can indulge in their spa or unwind with a nature walk. Satisfying your every need, you can completely switch off and recharge your batteries, before one final night in San José, back at the Holiday Inn Express San José Forum.

What is a deposit?

In short, you pay Secret Escapes a non-refundable deposit to secure your holiday, then you pay the holiday supplier the remaining balance of the holiday - as advertised - at a later date (before you travel).

We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
