Daily Itinerary:

Days: 1 & 2 San Jose & Cahuita
Leaving the capital of San Jose, you become familiar with the local culture with a visit to an Indigenous Reserve. We stop to go hiking in the Tirimbina Rainforest Centre which protects 346ha (865 acres) of pristine forest and contains great biodiversity. The reserve’s habitats include river banks, islands, forest edges, gardens plus many more. You walk through the longest hanging bridge in Costa Rica to admire many of the 420 species of birds, such as parrots, herons, toucans and others. Departing the lush forest you head for the coastal Cahuita National Park, best known for its coral reefs close to shore and stunning sandy beaches.
Accommodation: Camping with meals included
Day 3 & 4:  Bocas del Toro, PanamaCross the border into Panama for a scenic boat trip to the enchanting archipelago of Bocas del Toro, where you will savour the area's natural beauty. During the day, opt for a boating excursion to Bastimentos Marine Park and snorkel among the rare coral reef and a myriad of brightly coloured fish or just relax. In the evenings, sip rum cocktails and dance with the locals to the unique rhythms of Panama's Caribbean islands... perfect for perfecting your salsa moves!
Accommodation: Lodge/cabins included. Meals paid locally
Day: 5 Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Reserve
Back across the border, enjoy Puerto Viejo's palm fringed beaches and the tropical rainforest of the Gandoca Manzanillo Reserve, famous for its pristine coral reef and year-round warm weather. Swim or snorkel in the refreshing Caribbean sea, bask in the sun or watch for 'congos' (howler monkeys) in the nearby trees.
Accommodation: Hotel included. Meals paid locally.
Days: 6 & 7 Turrialba
Nestled amongst towering volcanoes, this quaint town is situated near some of Costa Rica's oldest pre-Columbian ruins, dating from 1000BC. Run the Class IV whitewater rapids of Pacuare River, said to be the best in the country, or hike in the lush jungle along the Reventazon River.
Accommodation: Camping with meals included

Days 8 & 9: Manuel Antonio National Park
Departing Turrialba you go hiking in the Talamanca Mountain Range near the highest peak Quetzales in one of the richest biological zones in Costa Rica. It is home to more than 400 species of birds, including the most prominent Resplendent Quetzal, phoenix of the forest. The farm is famous for the great number of quetzals that nest amid this cloud forest. Crossing the Pacific Coast, Manuel Antonio offers beautiful beaches backed by evergreen forest growing right up the tide line. With delicious seafood, salsa clubs and beach bars, there's no better way to end you Costa Rican escapade!
