Day 1, San José:

Welcome to Costa Rica! When you touch down, you’ll be met by your driver and whisked away to the charming Apartotel La Sabana – an oasis in the heart of the capital, and the perfect place to rest your head after a hectic travel day.

Day 2, San José to Santa Teresa:

A scenic ride through the Costa Rican countryside and ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya takes you from the Central Valley to the beautiful, quiet beachside town of Santa Teresa.

Day 3, Santa Teresa:

After a hearty breakfast, hike through the beautiful Curú Wildlife Reserve, said to offer some of the best wildlife-spotting opportunities on the Nicoya Peninsula. The reserve boats a rich and diverse array of wildlife in five different habitat types ranging from marine zones and mangrove swamps to tropical dry and moist forests. Don’t forget your swimsuit! Curú Bay boasts one of the most beautiful beaches on the Nicoya.

Day 4, Santa Teresa:

It’s time to set sail! Spend the day on a catamaran cruise, as your captain takes you on a route past protected, uninhabited islands in the Gulf of Nicoya to the beautiful white sand beach on Tortuga Island. Explore the undersea world of the island’s offshore volcanic reef, home to angelfish, morays, spotted eagle rays, and a swath of brightly-colored tropical beauties.

Afterwards, enjoy a casually elegant gourmet lunch accompanied by live music before sailing back along the coast while keeping a watchful eye out for dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles, humpbacks, and pilot whales.

Then, bid farewell to Costa Rica with a romantic, candlelit dinner for two at El Mirador Restaurant as you watch a last spectacular Pacific sunset.
