The Most Incredible Vacation Ever

9 Day Costa Rica Itinerary

The planning was outstanding and helped create our dream trip to Costa Rica! The trip was both relaxing and fun. From stunning views to seeing sloths up-close, this was a trip to remember. We are very happy with our trip and look forward to our next adventure.

A green welcome to our vacation…

We began our Costa Rica trip at Monteverde. Our driver Minor was awesome, and we felt very safe the entire ride. He was the first person we met in Costa Rica and started off our trip on the highest note after a long day of traveling. Hotel Cala Lodge was a very peaceful place to stay at. The view was breathtaking and the room was wonderful.

Adventure and excursions in Arenal…

In Arenal, we did a combo tour of waterfall and volcano hike. The day was incredible! The climb up the stairs was nothing in comparison to the beauty of the waterfall. However, my favorite excursion must be the canopy and suspension bridge tour the next day. The great guides made it extra fun! I loved the experience of zip lining!

The perfect ending to our getaway…

Tamarindo was the last stop on our trip and it was absolutely wonderful. It’s one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve been to. The beach was never overcrowded. Surfing is a must! Our surfing instructor was great and patient with two beginners. It was so much fun! We were picked up at our hotel on ATVs — an awesome experience!
