PACING:

  • This is an easily-paced Costa Rica travel itinerary.
  • Look forward to 3 destinations in 7 days, with 2 days in San José, 2 days in Tortuguero, and 3 days in Arenal.

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • Some walking is required throughout your Costa Rica adventure.
  • The program features walks and hikes that are relatively easy, including an easy wildlife walk to the Arenal Hanging Bridges. The Arenal Lava Walk features some rocky terrain but is not considered difficult.
  • Please refer to Vantage’s wheelchair- and handicapped-traveler policy as this journey does have some physical limitations and many venues are not wheelchair-accessible.

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • Tortuguero National Park features rugged terrain, but also well-maintained walking trails.
  • All sightseeing is on air-conditioned coaches with guides.

CLIMATE:

  • Temperatures can be quite hot and humid.
  • Because most of our activities take place in and around the rainforest, the weather will be hot, muggy and potentially rainy.
  • Adequate water, sunblock, good hiking/walking shoes, mosquito repellent and rain jacket/poncho are advised. Pack accordingly.
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly.
