Your Costa Rica Vacation Itinerary

  • Day 1: Most travelers fly into Juan Santamaria International Airport, just outside San José. Drop off your bags at your hotel before exploring downtown San José, including Mercado Central and the historic neighborhood of Barrio Amón.

  • Day 2-4: Book a rental car and drive north for around three hours to La Fortuna. This is the base for exploring Arenal Volcano National Park. Continue to Monteverde and explore its mystical Cloud Forest Reserve, zip line parks and suspension bridges.

  • Day 5-6: Next stop, Manuel Antonio National Park. Keep your eyes peeled for sloths and the resplendent but elusive quetzal bird.


Costa Rica Information
