Itinerary

Arrive in San José

Meet your MT Sobek representative outside of Juan Santamaria International Airport, and transfer to your hotel in Heredia. In the evening, meet with the group for an orientation briefing. Dinner is on your own tonight at the hotel.

Whitewater Rafting on the Río Pacuare

Start your trip with a whitewater adventure on the Río Pacuare, paddling your way through Class III-IV rapids. Afterwards, check into an eco-lodge located in the river basin, with time in the afternoon to relax and enjoy a rainforest hike or swim in the river falls. In the evening, gather with the group for a welcome dinner at the lodge.

Explore the Rainforest by Foot

Set off on a guided hike along the rainforest surrounding the Río Pacuare. Learn how to identify a variety of plants, flowers, and trees, along with birds and other wildlife, from your bilingual guide. Enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure. You can relax and take in the river views from the lodge, or explore the surrounding trails. The trails allow you to access natural water slides, waterfalls, and pristine pools in the rainforest. (Bring binoculars and a camera!) You can also take an optional zip-line canopy tour.

Paddle the Pacuare & Tour a Cacao Plantation

After breakfast, take on another exhilarating day of whitewater rafting on the Río Pacuare with Class III-IV rapids. After changing into some dry clothes, transfer to your hotel in the Arenal Volcano area, one of the most iconic destinations in Costa Rica. Along the way, stop to visit a cacao plantation at Sarapiqui for a guided tour, where you'll learn all about the chocolate-making process and the history of cacao in Central America.

Explore Arenal Volcano National Park

Visit the art galleries of the Corazones Valientes Painters Association, a group of women who paint and create ceramic murals. Share a home-cooked lunch with these amazing women, then create your own piece of art with their help. Afterwards, explore deeper into Arenal Volcano National Park on a private guided nature hike along hardened lava flows. In the evening, visit a family-run hot springs resort and soak in the volcanically heated pools that range from 77F to 122F.

Transfer to Tiskita Jungle Lodge

Enjoy breakfast and transfer to San José airport and take a short flight to the southern city of Golfito. On arrival, transfer to the remote Tiskita Jungle Lodge, located on a private, 800-acre biological reserve. The lodge lets you make the most of any downtime you have with hiking trails, birdwatching, and hikes in the rainforest.

Jungle Yoga & Surf Lessons on Pavones Beach

Take a yoga class surrounded by beautiful jungle flowers, banana trees, and wildlife on the open-air yoga deck of Casa Marea Alta. Afterwards, get out on the water and ride the waves with surfing lessons at the remote Pavones Beach.

Take in the Rainforest & Spot Exotic Wildlife

Explore the pristine tropical rainforest on a guided hike around Tiskita. Your guide will help you spot wildlife, including endangered species like the Central American Squirrel Monkey and the Granular Poison-dart Frog, as well as up to 275 species of birds. Not far from the main lodge, visit Tiskita´s Organic Fruit Orchard and taste tropical fruit such as starfruit, anona, South American sapote, cacao (chocolate), and mangosteen. Then, participate in a Conservation Talk Walk led by one of Tiskita´s owners.
