Day 1: Arrive in Liberia - transfer to Gulf de Papagayo
Welcome to Costa Rica!
Liberia is a gateway town that welcomes visitors who pass through it seeking adventure and respite in the shimmering beaches of the Pacific or the misty rainforests of the country. The Daniel Oduber International Airport although small, offers modern facilities and from here it takes about 40 minutes to reach the coast where you will be spending the next few days.
Day 2: Day of Adventure - Zipline, Horseback Riding, and Hot Springs
You'll begin the day bright and early with a morning pick-up from your hotel. You will transfer an hour or so east to the foot of Rincón de la Vieja National Park. This is home to another active volcano, and like at Arenal, you'll find trails and waterfalls here. Upon arrival, get ready for your adventure to start.
First, you'll embark on a 40-minute horseback-riding excursion. Marvel at the surrounding views as you make your way higher and higher into the park. Your destination: the first of many zip-line platforms. All told you will whiz over the forest canopy on 12 different zip lines, including one that is 320-feet high.
After the adrenaline rush of the zip line, it will be time for lunch at a local restaurant. After eating, relax in the natural hot springs before heading back to your hotel.
Day 3: Beach Day and Sunset Catamaran Sail
Today is all about beach time. After breakfast at your hotel, get out and explore the coastline around Guanacaste. Maybe hit Playa del Coco, which is a popular fishing village with many salsa bars, restaurants, and nightlife. You could even try a little surfing.
In the evening, you'll board a catamaran in the Golfo de Papagayo for a sunset sail. The boat will drop anchor in a calm bay and you'll enjoy some snorkeling while the crew prepares a dinner feast. While you eat, bask in the sunset over the horizon while making sure to keep an eye out for dolphins, sea turtles, flying fish, or even a breaching whale.
Day 4: Depart Costa Rica from Liberia
It's time to say adiós to Costa Rica! After breakfast, you'll begin the drive to Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, in Guanacaste’s capital city of Liberia, for your return flight home.
