This trip is the perfect combination of exploring the Arenal region and the Monte Verde Cloud Forest.

We will start in Arenal which is famous for its 7000 year old Volcano and the natural hot springs. In Arenal we will do nature walks, spot wildlife, explore hot springs and generally enjoy the amazing flora and fauna. It is truly an amazing area to visit.

After exploring Arenal and its volcano, we will transfer to Monteverde Cloud Forest. The transfer is going to be full of adventure as it will be a Jeep-Boat-Jeep ride! Monteverde is special because of the cloud forests where amazing canopy tours take place. Monteverde’s cloud forests are the byproduct of fog, a thick, low-hanging cloud, tangling amongst the leaves and branches of the forest canopy. We will among others enjoy a very nice hike here. Monteverde is full of adventure and the best place to end this trip!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days should I spend in Costa Rica?

    A three- to five-day Costa Rica itinerary is more than enough to cover all the major highlights of the country. Anywhere between 10 days and two weeks in Costa Rica will give you enough time to explore and experience everything the country has to offer. 

  • Are credit cards accepted in Costa Rica?

    American Express, Visa, and MasterCard have commonly accepted forms of payment in Costa Rica, especially when paying for tours, shuttle services, hotels, attractions, and other services. However, it is always a good idea to carry some cash to pay for taxi rides,  meals, and other minor transactions. You will also need cash when visiting remote locations.   

  • Do I need to visa to travel to Costa Rica?

    Not everyone wishing to visit Costa Rica requires a visa. Depending on your place of residency, nationality, and length of stay, the criteria may vary. Americans, for instance, can enter Costa Rica without a visa and are allowed to stay for up to 90 days. To confirm any entrance requirements, inquire with the relevant embassy ahead of time.

  • Do people in Costa Rica speak English?

    English is common only in tourist-friendly places in Costa Rica. Otherwise, Spanish is the official and most widely spoken language in the country. Learning a few common Spanish words and phrases might be helpful while speaking with locals. The locals also speak Creole and a few Indian languages.

  • What is the best month to visit Costa Rica?

    The best time to visit Costa Rica is between December and April. The weather during the dry season is amazing enough to relax on the beach and trek through the forests. Those enthusiastic about exploring the lush rain forests and participating in water sports, May to November is the best time to visit Costa Rica.
