Our Costa Rica Caribbean coast honeymoon is sure to make your honeymoon unforgettably wonderful.
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 – Pacuare River Whitewater Rafting
Wake early for a three-day white water rafting adventure on the Rio Pacuare. We will travel 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 rain forest in Central America. National Geographic called the Pacuare one of the top three commercial rafting runs in the world. Between the class III + IV rapids, enjoy side hikes to beautiful waterfalls and look for sloths, monkeys and toucans in the jungle around you. Half way down the river we’ll pull over at our amazing riverside lodge. 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.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
Day 3 – Cabecar Indigenous Village Hike
Today, after a hearty pancake breakfast prepared by your trusty guides, you’ll do a guided nature hike deep into the rainforest. Along the way, your guide will point out and explain all of the tropical flora and fauna you encounter. This is one of the most bio-diverse and pristine areas in the world and you’re sure to encounter more amazing wildlife than you ever though possible! Our final destination is a small Cabecar Village. The Cabecar are the original indigenous inhabitants of the Pacuare Valley and they still live in much the same way as their pre-Columbian forefathers. Today will truly be a day you’ll never forget…..
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
Day 4 – Pacuare River & Transfer to the Caribbean Coast
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 Caribbean Coast and on of Costa Rica’s most romantic beaches, Puerto Viejo…
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Day 5 – Snorkeling
Today we’ll start the day with a Snorkeling Trip / Cruise along the beautiful pristine shoreline.
From the boat you may see dolphins, sea turtles and if you’re very lucky maybe even a humpback whale.
After a nice snack we put on our snorkeling gear and get up-close-and-personal with the incredibly beautiful tropical fishes that call this paradise home.
Day 6 – Surfing Lessons
The Caribbean 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 7 – Beach Time
Sleep late (after the last few days, you’ve earned it!).
Soak up some rays, hit the waves, snorkel, or choose from a multitude of other cool activities—either way, just relax and have fun.
Now, the Caribbean Coast was settled by Jamaican rail workers and has preserved its island culture, so, you’re in for some great evenings of cervezas and reggae music!
Day 8 – 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 Family Vacation.
