Day 1

On your first day you will picked up at your hotel at either 8:00am or 2:30pm. If you need assistance with arranging the first night in San Jose we recommend Hilton Garden Inn La Sabana as our preferred hotel in San Jose. You will then head to Monteverde in a very comfortable shared shuttle mini van. The 4 hour drive will pass through many small towns and rolling green hills.. Make sure you bring a light jacket as it can get quite cool at this elevation. Upon your arrival you will check into your comfortable and cozy mountain lodge. We recommend Rustic Lodge, as it is located not far from town, which is great if you would like to check out some of the great local restaurants

Day 2

The second morning you can either explore on your own or take one of the very famous Cloud Forest Tours. In the afternoon you will travel from Monteverde to La Fortuna via our very popular Lake Crossing Tour. You will have many great opportunities to take photos of the lake with the amazing Arenal Volcano in the background. Upon your arrival you will check in for 2 nights in one of our preferred lodges, we highly recommend San Bosco which offers great rooms at affordable price. If you want a bit more luxury, opt for Arenal Manoa, Silencio del Campo or our personal favorite Arenal Nayara.

Day 3

The following day you will be picked up at your hotel at 8 AM to visit the La Fortuna Hanging Bridges. You can also choose a different tour (or more than one). Options include , the famous Sky Trek/Sky Tram Zipline/Canopy Tour, or the Lost Canyon for a canyoneering adventure! In the afternoon you will explore the 1968 Trail to learn more about the story of the eruption and get some fantastic views of the volcano.
