Travel Itinerary

Day 1

Meet and greet and transfer to Grano de Oro Hotel. Grano de Oro is considered one of the nicest boutique hotels in downtown San Jose.

Day 2

Private transfer to Monteverde, visiting the Poas Volcano and Sarchi on the way. Poas Volcano, located about one and a half hours away from San José, is an impressive active volcano featuring one of the largest craters in the world. The volcano offers spectacular views of the Central Valley and comfortable trails to hike through the evergreen tropical cloud forest that surrounds it. After the visit, we head to Monteverde stopping in Sarchi on the way, where you will have the opportunity for local crafts shopping. Monteverde is located on a 4600 foot secluded plateau on Tilaran Mountain Range. This community was founded in 1951 by a group of North American Quakers. The founder’s' environmental consciousness, together with help from private organizations, led to the creation of a biological preserve that hosts one of the richest ecological systems in the country. Due to its location at a relatively high altitude, Monteverde's climate is rather fresh. Temperatures range from 55-75ºF. Clouds, mist, rain and eventual rays of sunshine bring life and enchantment to this beautiful cloud forest and make it an ideal place to explore the nature and wildlife of this incredible habitat.

Overnight in Monteverde

Breakfast included.

Day 3

In the morning, transfer to Selvatura Park for an exciting zip line experience and the hanging bridges tour. The famous three hour zip line tour offers you the opportunity of flying over the canopy of an exotic cloud forest through 15 cables and 18 platforms. Selvatura Park has one of the longest Canopy Tours in Costa Rica and it is the only canopy tour located inside the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Once you have finished this tour, you will continue your adventure at Selvatura's Tree Top Walkways, which consist of a 1.9 mile trail that crosses through the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Here visitors will walk on eight different bridges with various lengths ranging between 150 feet up to 510 feet and altitudes ranging between 36 feet up to 180 feet. The Tree Top Walkways are suitable for people of all ages and are a great way to experience the marvels of this natural sanctuary.
