Pick up at your hotel or the airport and private transfer to Tapirus Lodge, ensconced in a private 1,200-acre reserve adjacent to pristine Braulio Carrillo National Park.

Then, you will learn about the rainforest as you ride on our aerial tram, gliding over the canopy and exploring the forest layers in the company of your naturalist guide. Think of it as a National Geographic live show, that’s how good it is! The rest of the day is free.

Days 3-6: The Central Pacific: Waves, tranquility, and fiery sunsets

Originally a sleepy fishing village, Quepos lost its humble status soon after a handful of visionaries discovered its bountiful waters and the beauty of its national parks. A few boutique hotels later, the unassuming village was transformed into a quaint tourist town actively sought out by honeymooners and active travelers, who flock to Quepos attracted by its fiery sunsets, luxuriant national parks inhabited by a myriad of wild creatures, and a coast blessed with spectacular cliffs, pristine white-sand beaches, and stony islands thriving with marine birds. Land and sea can be explored these days through a varied menu of eco tours ranging from horseback riding and canopy tours to snorkeling and sea kayaking. A thrilling waterfall climbing adventure can be added en route at our Rainforest Pacific Park. Please inquire for details.

Services included:

  • Daily breakfast
  • Private overland transfer from Braulio Carrillo to Quepos
  • Accommodations for three nights in Quepos
