The lodge’s representative will collect you at Drake Airstrip for the voyage by motorboat of about 20 minutes to the Punta Marenco Lodge, along the northern coast of the Osa Peninsula (you might be lucky and spot whales or schools of playful dolphins!). After having checked in, enjoy a delicious lunch. Use this afternoon to explore the rainforest trails of the lodge’s private nature reserve until you reach the confluence of the river Rio Claro.

Today you will enjoy a hiking tour through Corcovado National Park, often called “the most biologically intense place on earth,” comprising thirteen major ecosystems. First, arrive by boat at the Park entrance at San Pedrillo, before walking into the jungle where you will be surrounded by the untamed wildlife Costa Rica is famous for. Your local naturalist expert will guide you through this wonderland of giant trees, hidden waterfalls, bright-red heliconia, whirling humming birds and clamoring monkeys. From an amazing variety of species, some very rare, you may even be lucky enough to see two of Costa Rica’s biggest cats, the Ocelot and the Jaguar, or the largest terrestrial mammal of Central America; Baird's tapir. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the ranger station, then continue your hikes to a precious waterfall. Return to the lodge in the late afternoon. Dinner is served.

DAY 4: Osa Península: Drake Bay / Caño Island Biological Reserve
Today you’re off on for an excursion with a local guide by boat, to the precious Caño Island in the Pacific Ocean, 10 miles offshore. Twelve miles west of Drake bay, the Caño Island offers some of the most exciting sea life in the world. A wide variety of marine life can be discovered beneath the island waters. Perhaps the most memorable encounters occur with the pelagics that inhabit the area. If you like, you might want to enjoy an optional hike up to ancient Indian burial grounds in the interior of the island. Moreover, you might want to use the time to snorkel along the coral reefs that surround this tropical paradise. Today’s lunch will be picnic-style and served on the shimmering white sand beach lined by coconut palms. You’ll head back to the lodge in the afternoon.

DAY 9: Arenal Volcano - Waterfall Canyoning
Today your trip begins with a 30-minute 4x4 drive into the tropical rainforest outside the town of La Fortuna, in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano. Afterwards, you trek through the forest on magical trails that lead to some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, a place very few people get to know. Along the way you will have the chance to discover the secrets that lie hidden deep within the canyon. From the first waterfall you will rappel down from the top into the beautiful and pristine canyon below. The adventure includes four rappels, three of them are along waterfalls, and one dry rock face. Then just a short trek out of the canyon, jump in the vehicles and head back to the base camp. See tropical birds, monkeys and thousands of different kinds of plants and flowers. Rest of the day at your disposal.

DAY 11: Monteverde - Treetop Walkways/Hanging Bridges & Canopy Tour
Your adventurous day begins with a "walk in the clouds." Start with your feet on the ground, hiking through lush forest toward the “Treetop Walkways" of Selvatura; suspended bridges, platforms and trails elevated deep within the canopy of the cloud forest. From here we are allowed a gentle, rare glimpse through the tops of giant trees into the nether regions of this hidden world that would otherwise remain a mystery to most of us. While exploring the different trails keep your binoculars or camera handy, since you might catch a glimpse of the rare and famous bird of kings – the Quetzal! Afterwards you enjoy a Canopy Tour: Guides will start by dressing you with the appropriate equipment; then they will take you through each of the 15 cables and 18 platforms and optionally through the very own Tarzan Swing. Selvatura Park is one of the longest if not the longest Canopy Tour in Costa Rica!

DAY 14: Rincón de la Vieja - San José – (BF)
A hearty breakfast is a good idea to be ready for any activities you might want to enjoy today. Optional: Explore Rincon de la Vieja National Park, hiking aprox. 2 hours through wet forest with numerous crossings of various mountain rivers. You’ll also encounter dry and hot plateaus with little vegetation. At last you will reach the “Blue Lake" whose natural basin is nourished by a spectacular waterfall of turquoise-blue that invites you for a refreshing swim. Later on, you can continue your hike down to the park’s main attractions: bubbling mud pools, pits of boiling hot water, vapor geysers and fumaroles (deep holes that emit sulfurous vapor). If all of this doesn’t impress you with some sense of a volcano’s natural power, nothing will.
Around noon ride back to San José. Once in San José, the remainder of the day is yours to do as you wish. You might visit one of the various galleries or museums (optional - entrance fees not included) or just go on a sightseeing spree. In the late afternoon return your rental car at the hotel.
