Yoga and Surf Vacation
Welcome to Cost Rica
Your guide will be waiting outside the arrivals terminal with a sign with your names on it. After leaving the airport, you begin the journey to the town of La Fortuna at the base of the Arenal Volcano. Having dominated the skyline for many years the volcano is still an impressive site. Resting on the hills and slopes of the valley and tucked within the lush landscape, you will find your deluxe bungalow at Rancho Margot. The six streams and the Caño Negro River coursing through the property create an orchestra of peaceful sounds together with the diverse calls of hundreds of bird species, the trill of insects and the call of howler monkeys. From the bungalow’s wrap-around terrace, you can swing in the hammock to the sounds of the forest while admiring the botanical gardens and Lake Arenal in the distance. Locally grown meals, a guided tour of the ranch, daily yoga classes, swimming pools, wireless internet, hiking trails and botanical gardens are complimentary. Overnight in Rancho Margot. Dinner included.
This morning you will ride in the direction of the lookout built high atop one of the many mountains. On a clear day enjoy breathtaking views of 60,000 hectares of rainforest, Lake Arenal, Arenal Volcano, Cerro Chato, Volcan Tenorio, Miravalles and Rincon de La Vieja. You are sure to spot some fantastic wildlife as well as unobstructed views over the surrounding rainforest. Overnight in Rancho Margot. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
Canyoning and Zipline
Talk about getting the most out of your time in Costa Rica. Nothing like a shot of adrenaline as you wake up – more effective than coffee! Today is the Lost Canyon Adventure, rappelling down a series of waterfalls, climaxing with a 200ft assisted rappel. After this adventure you will discover a bird’s eye view of the volcano, lake and rainforest as you travel up in open air cable cars before speeding back down to earth along almost two miles of zip lines. From the platforms you will have great photography opportunities with treetop views of the tropical rainforest. This is an exhilarating fun way to see the rainforest and the beauty of the area. Overnight in Rancho Margot. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
This day is yours entirely to enjoy. Be part of the Rancho Margot experience and take a moment to appreciate your body with twice-daily yoga classes, a plethora of meditation spaces, healthy organic meals and on-site massage services. Today you will also have time to hike the many miles of trails around the hotel, which is also part of a Biological Corridor connecting the Arenal area with Monteverde. Discover the Children’s Eternal Rainforest and get a glimpse of the creatures that inhabit it and maybe hire a guide from the hotel to teach you all about the flora and fauna of the jungle. There are also sea kayaks or mountain bikes to use, if you wish to explore more. Or you can sign up for another adventure activity such as whitewater rafting or ATV tours. You choose how busy you would like to be. Overnight in Rancho Margot. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Time to hit the beach
After all that adventure it is time to head to the beach for some sun, surf and sea. You will be driven along the scenic route through the hills heading down to sea level. As you get closer to the coast, feel the temperature rise and get ready for some hot lazy days. Your hotel, Jardin Del Eden has been designed for couples and adults looking for an easy going and exclusive atmosphere. Located in Costa Rica’s north pacific coast, in Tamarindo beach, this exclusive boutique hotel offers stylish accommodations, ocean views and magnificent tropical gardens, along with a fine combination of nature and style. Breakfast included.
Now its time to catch your dinner. This morning you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the marina where you will meet your captain and mate and will board the sport fishing boat, where you will spend the day. They will take you up to 40 miles offshore in search of Sailfish, Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi (also known as Dorado). The sailfish will be released but any tuna or Mahi Mahi that you catch will be filleted by the mate and you will be free to take it with you back to your hotel for dinner. The crew have years of experience of fishing in this area and know the best places to look for a great catch. The boat will supply lunch, snacks, drinks and beers! You will need to bring sunscreen and a sense of adventure. Overnight Jardin Del Eden. Breakfast and lunch included.
In the morning you will hit the beach for surf lessons with a private instructor at the Surf School. Costa Rica is known worldwide for its beautiful beaches perfect for surfing and it is a fun sport to learn. Lessons with a local surf school will make sure that you learn the basics of surfing on a smooth and safe way. The surf lessons are given according to the tides and in an introductory surf lesson you will learn the basics of surfing such as standing, paddling, turning, tides as well as ocean awareness and surf ethics. The rest of the day is yours to practice what you have learned or to relax and enjoy Tamarindo. Overnight Jardin Del Eden. Breakfast included.
Enjoy your last morning in the hot tropical sun before taking your private transfer to Liberia International Airport in time to join your international flight home. Breakfast included.
