Last month we welcomed our very first, Discova-operated multi-day tour group to Costa Rica. We couldn’t be prouder of our team for growing this product in the destination, especially after receiving incredible feedback from the guests.
This is the first of several entirely Discova-operated multi-day tours confirmed for Costa Rica (many were delayed due to the rise of the Omicron variant during the pandemic), and we can’t wait to arrange itineraries and departure dates for new and existing accounts.
Get insight into the 7-day itinerary we delivered and what guests had to say.
Guests were greeted and collected at the airport by their English-speaking guide, Mayer, and taken to their 5-star, boutique hotel for the night.
With an early start, guests were whisked off in the morning to the incredible Arenal Volcano region. Here they explored an incredible wildlife refuge and enjoyed a motorboat ride along the Río Frío River. This area is one of the most biologically diverse in the world and shelters a great variety of fauna, including three of the four different species of monkeys found in Costa Rica, iguanas, sloths, turtles, spectacled caimans, and many more.
The afternoon continued with a welcoming, local lunch and relaxation time in seven thermal pools that are naturally heated by the Arenal Volcano.
The group spent the day exploring the Cloud Forest of Monteverde with a naturalist guide. Through a series of trails and hanging bridges, they could discover and admire this area’s exceptional biodiversity and intriguing plant and animal life.
Arrival in Manuel Antonio: a tropical, seaside paradise. This day was for free leisure, and guests could visit the downtown area, its restaurants and beaches, or simply enjoy facilities at their hotel.
The morning started at leisure, and brimmed with amazing views during the afternoon. The group was taken on a priceless sunset sailing and snorkelling excursion, passing the back of the Manuel Antonio National Park, with a guide to point out notable wildlife and vegetation. The excursion concluded with stunning snorkelling dives at Biesanz Bay, and a beautiful sunset at Quepos.
On this final full day, the group enjoyed an incredible walk amongst the breathtaking fauna and flora of Carara National Park.
The park is world-renowned as a birding destination, and travellers may be treated to seeing the scarlet macaw. The rare bird is in danger of extinction and the second largest of its species in Costa Rica.
At the end of the day, guests were brought back to San Jose for a farewell dinner.
Breakfast and transportation to the airport for the departure flight back home.
