Volcán Arenal, Bosque Nuboso Monteverde and Tamarindo Beach in Guanacaste

This is the perfect trip to meet three of the most outstanding natural landscapes of Costa Rica. The first destination to visit is one of the 10 most active volcanoes in the world: the famous Arenal Volcano. This volcano is picture perfect with a flawless cone and a beautiful lake at its feet. Here you’ll find beautiful scenery, pure water rivers, hot springs and lots of nature. On clear nights, Arenal will surprise you with bursting lava running down its prairies. The journey continues to the area in the Monteverde Cloud Forest,; a place with great importance to biologists worldwide for its rich biodiversity within the Tropical Cloud Forest. This cloud forest is known for its suspension bridges that will leave you walking through the treetops.

Finally, we visit the North Pacific in the province of Guanacaste. Here you learn the tropical dry forest, "one of the least common ecosystems in Central America", known for its great natural biodiversity, cosmopolitan culture and beautiful white beaches.

On the coastline of the Guanacaste peninsula, there are probably a few waves with your name on it, and the Tamarindo School of Surf will teach you to ride them with just one lesson.

Tamarindo Surf School is the first of its kind in Costa Rica. Their unique teaching method is based on experience and knowledge acquired over years of study and surfing. This is a friends and family activity for all ages. All of their surf instructors are Ticos (local Costa Ricans). This means your surf lesson will not only be conducted by an experienced surf instructor who knows the local breaks, but by one who will also give you some exposure to the Costa Rican culture.

An open tour to bring your friends or meet new friends from other parts of the world. Starts at 1:30pm

Silently glide along Costa Rica’s golden coast while passing some of Guanacaste’s exotic bays, white sand beaches and tropical jungles. Gaze off the bow with a cold tropical drink prepared and served by our crew as you scan the seas for dolphins, sea turtles, flying fish or even a breaching whale.

We will make a stop at a tranquil bay, drop anchor and frolic in the ocean. You can snorkel in the bay or run down the deserted white sand beach while the crew prepares a feast of chicken or pasta salad, fruit, chips, guacamole and homemade chocolate chip cookies. At sunset, the Marlin Del Rey catamarans will set sail again and you will hear the waves slide along the giant catamaran as you watch the sun set, illuminating the clouds still in the sky.
