Adventure Honeymoon 9-Day
Starting at $1,898 per person
An adventure honeymoon in Costa Rica is a great way to begin your new life together! Packed with fun and amazing experiences, you will find yourselves never wanting to head home!
Day 1 – Arrive & Transfer to Turrialba
Today you’ll arrive at Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose where your friendly Green Frog Adventures Guide will be waiting to transport you to your first exotic destination. Turrialba is a sleepy little mountain town located on the slopes of a now semi-dormant, 10,000-foot volcano, Volcan Turrialba. Turrialba is also known as the whitewater rafting center of the country. Once we arrive, we’ll settle into our plush plantation-style hotel located on the shores of its own private lake. Get a good night’s sleep, tomorrow we start the adventure!
Meals: No meals included today.
Day 2 – Overnight Pacuare River Rafting
Wake early for a two-day whitewater rafting adventure on the Rio Pacuare. We will travel form Turrialba to Tres Equis where we descend through dense jungle into the heart of the Rio Pacuare gorge. This is a special river running through some of the last remaining virgin rainforest in Central America. National Geographic called the Pacuare one of the top three commercial rafting runs in the world. Between the class III and class IV rapids, enjoy side hikes to beautiful waterfalls and look for sloths, monkeys, and toucans in the jungle around you. Halfway down the river we’ll pull over at the famous Pacuare River Lodge, our stunning riverside abode for the evening. Sip on a tropical drink or explore the surrounding wilderness while your guides prepare a delicious jungle meal in the fully equipped, open-air kitchen. Sleep under the stars or in one of the enclosed cabinas, but sleep well because tomorrow’s whitewater is even bigger than today’s!
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, & Happy Hour
Day 3 – Pacuare River & Transfer to Arenal Volcano
Today you’ll wake to the singing of Tropical birds and rumble of the nearby river. The lovely aroma of percolating coffee will coax you out of your cozy cabinas and to the hearty breakfast your trusty guides have been preparing. Then, after breakfast, it’s back to work, we’ve got boats to load and rapids to conquer. Today’s whitewater will be even more thrilling than the previous day’s, and we’ll encounter several exciting class IV Rapids. From the take-out, we’ll take the short drive to the bustling town of La Fortuna and Costa Rica’s most active volcano, Volcan Arenal.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Day 4 – Canopy Tour
Today we’ll start with a client favorite, the canopy tour! We’ll head deep into the rainforest on the slopes of the volcano to the start of the tour and from there you’ll see amazing creatures that spend their entire lives in the canopy as you dangle hundreds of feet above the forest floor. But remember, what goes up must come down! We’ll zoom down using a series of 13 zip lines! Oh, and don’t forget the optional “Tarzan Swing” at the end… Or, perhaps an optional tour to the Thermal Hotsprings Resort located at the base of the volcano.
Optional Tour: Hot Springs – $45 per person
Day 5 – Arenal Hanging Bridges
The Arenal Hanging Bridges are one the most beautiful environmental friendly projects in Costa Rica. Located in front of the Arenal Volcano, within the corridor followed by birds migrating between North and South America, the trails and bridges of this project will bring you as close as you could ever hope to get to the birds, the flowers, and the lush vegetation of the primary rainforest. Walk right into the forest, thanks to the imposing hanging bridges overlooking the canopy and our easy, safe, and beautiful trails with views of the volcano.
Day 6 – Manual Antonio Beach
Today we’ll rise early and start heading toward Manuel Antonio one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful beaches.
You’ll be basking under the tropical rays on the white, sandy beach and swimming in the warm, crystal blue-green Pacific in no time at all.
That evening, you can take a delightful walk along the beach and watch the sun as it slowly descends into the sea.
Day 7 – Canyoning
Today we’ll head up into the mountains overlooking the sea to do some canyoning. Once we summit, we’ll put on our dry gear and start hiking down one of the many creeks that cascade down the steep slopes. In no time at all, we’ll come to our first waterfall, a beautiful 100-footer! The only way down is to repel. Your guides will rig the ropes, give you a good demonstration, then, it’s into the abyss for you! You’ll descend through the ruggedly beautiful canyon, repelling down one waterfall after another to the vehicles waiting below. After your wild decent, we’ll whisk you back to your hotel to get cleaned up for yet another legendary Costa Rican sunset.
Day 8 – Surfing Lessons
Manuel Antonio offers gentle consistent waves that are perfect for the fledgling surfer.
Our supremely qualified instructors will teach you basic surfing techniques, wave dynamics, surfing etiquette, and ocean safety.
By the end of the first day, we promise you’ll be standing up riding the waves like an old pro (well, maybe just standing up)!
Day 9 – Adios
We’ll provide a private shuttle that will take you directly from your hotel to the passenger drop-off at the airport.
You’ll depart with amazing memories of the perfect tropical adventure vacation. Adios…
