Immerse Yourself in Tropical Paradise in San Jose, Costa Rica for One Night at the Park Inn, Puerto Viejo for Four Nights at Hotel Aguas Claras, and Fortuna de San Carlos (Arenal) for Two Nights at Nayara Resort Spa and Gardens for Two (Land Only)
Lush rainforests, unspoiled beaches, an abundance of wildlife - this diverse tropical paradise is yours in Costa Rica! Begin your trip in the capital city of San Jose, located in the central valley and surrounded by beautiful mountains and majestic volcanoes, before making your way toward the Caribbean to the province of Limon for a stay at Hotel Aguas Claras in Puerto Viejo, a luxury boutique hotel where privacy, tranquility and comfort are key to a restorative vacation. Your Costa Rican travels culminate with the ultimate rainforest experience in Arenal during a stay at Nayara, a place where nature and romance are in perfect harmony.
San José has so much more to offer than simply a central location before moving on to the gorgeous beaches and rain forests; you'll find stunning architecture, beautiful parks and delicious food, minus the crowds that can pack other Latin American capitals like Mexico City. Stay in comfort in the heart of San José's bustling downtown at the Park Inn, which puts you within walking distance of the bustling downtown area and the best attractions.
The drive between San Jose and Puerto Viejo in Limon weaves its way past picturesque scenery. Soak it all up before you arrive in Puerto Viejo to spend the next four nights discovering the unique charm of this formerly quiet fishing village, which has grown into a vibrant seaside town boasting gorgeous beaches, crystal clear waters and amazing surf opportunities! Dive into luxury at Hotel Aguas Claras, an adults-only arts boutique hotel on Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast. A beach and rainforest destination for adults to rest, restore and explore, Hotel Aguas Claras offers modern accommodations, with every corner of the resort designed to deliver the Caribbean experience at its very best. Your bungalow ensconces you in modern Caribbean-Victorian style with everything you might need for a restorative vacation including semi-open showers, a/c in the bedrooms, minibar, fans, amenity gift bag, potable water and solar powered batteries. Jump into all the best activities this magical area has to offer, whether that means booking a day at the spa, snorkeling through the nearby crystal clear coral reefs, learning to surf or cycling around town at your leisure. The possibilities to immerse yourself in nature and Costa Rican culture abound!
Leave the quaint Puerto Viejo town behind and head to the town of La Fortuna de San Carlos, home of the Arenal volcano in the province of Alajuela. Arenal is one of Costa Rica's most sought-after destinations, and it's not hard to imagine why - breathtaking and alluring with a perfectly symmetrical shape, the majestic (and currently resting) Arenal volcano creates an irresistible sense of awe! You'll stay at Nayara, a property that reflects the allure of its location and respects the ecological balance of one of the most beautiful places on earth with a commitment to sustainable tourism and environmental responsibility. The casitas feature large screened windows that open up to bring nature inside, and light flows through the interiors, from the bedroom to the private gardens with rain showers, to the private terraces with secluded Jacuzzis. Modern amenities compliment the rooms, which are the most exceptional accommodations in the area. Enjoy state-of-the-art facilities, including remarkable restaurants offering international and local cuisine, a pool bar, and a wine and tapas bar. Perched on a cliff overlooking the forest, the Spa at Nayara is a spiritual enclave in an emerald jungle, a place of rejuvenation, harmony, and beauty.
