Day 2

Adventure Connection to Arenal Volcano Area

You meet your guide early for a briefing about your upcoming trip — he or she will be able to answer any of your questions before you head out on an adventurous day to the Arenal Volcano area. This is an awesome day of travel because we break up the travel time with a cool hike to the Poas Volcano National Park to see the volcano and explore the surrounding cloud forest of this impressive volcano. You’ll have FREE WiFi available on your van and your guide is on hand to pass on interesting details about life in Costa Rica!

You then arrive to the mystic Chachagua Rainforest Lodge tucked away along the edge of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest which is the biological corridor between the Arenal Volcano and the lush cloud forest reserves up in Monteverde.
You’ll stop at a traditional local restaurant and order lunch on your own. Dinner at Chachagua Rainforest Lodge is included tonight.

Playa Samara

Today “Vamos a la Playa!!” We head to Samara beach! Hop into your comfortable van with FREE WiFi and take a scenic trip to the beach, stopping in Tenorio on the way for some rainforest fun. This Costa Rica vacation has great flexibility so today you can choose between either class 3-4 Whitewater Rafting or the more-relaxed Safari Float on the Tenorio River.
This is a pretty-exhausting day of fun, adventure and travel, but now you’ll have time at the beach to finish off relaxing and enjoying some downtime after so much adventure in Arenal.
