Day 1 Arrive in Liberia | Transfer to Arenal

Arrive in Liberia and transfer to Arenal where you will overnight.

Day 2 Rainforest Tram and Canopy

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your hotel this morning, before being picked up and transferred to the Sky Tram gondolas. Enjoy a slow ride up the mountainside, taking in amazing views on the way, as well as keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife. You are accompanied by a bilingual guide who will point out flora and fauna and tell you about the unique ecosystem. At the top, enjoy magnificent views of volcanoes and Lake Arenal from the observation deck. You can spend some time exploring the top area before descending down to the base. One option is to ride back down the tram, but the more exciting option we will try is the zipline canopy tour. Enjoy a thrilling ride as you zip on cables running across two mountains all the way to the bottom!

Day 3 Monteverde Cloud Forest Hanging Bridges

After breakfast, spend the morning looking for a variety of bird species on your hike through the Selvatura Park in the Monteverde area. The hanging bridges tour consists of 8 bridges, ranging from 150 to 510 feet long. High above the cloud forest floor, you can see the flora and fauna below and the variety of plant life that exists here. As you make your way on this two mile hike, your guide will point out an array of bird life that make their homes in the cloud forest. You have a chance to see unique bird species such as the quetzal, toucan, wood creeper, flycatchers, orioles and grosbeaks. With any luck, you may see the three-wattled bellbird.

Day 4 Rafting the Tenorio River

Today embark on a rafting adventure! After a buffet breakfast, transfer to your launch site for a day river expedition. Stop for a mid-day snack served along the edge of the river.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
