1 DAY BALDI HOTSPRINGS
It is far from surprising that this all inclusive tour (transportation, bilingual guide, lunch and dinner, entry to Baldi hot springs) is a favorite amongst travelers. What more could youwant than awe inspiring scenery and relaxation to make for the perfect Costa Rican getaway, and that is exactly what this full day experience provides! Marvel at the imposing form of Volcan Arenal, relish in the thermal therapy provided by the Baldi Hot Springs, and enjoy the breathtaking greenery of the surrounding mountainous region. Before arriving to the volcano you will first be treated to a visit of the artisanal delight of Sarachi, a town famous as the birthplace for Costa Rican handicrafts. Here you will bear witness to the largest ox cart (or Carretas in Spanish) in the world. These beautiful and intricately decorated carts are an important national symbol of traditional labor and the hardworking spirit of the people. From here you will then continue on to La Fortuna, fully appreciating along the way the fertile nature of the surrounding volcanic soils which support the surrounding agriculture, ranging from coffee plantations to pineapple farms. Upon arrival lunch will be served at a quaint restaurant with a stunning vista of Arenal in all its glory. Rising 1,670 meters high in a perfect conical form, Arenal Volcano certainly stands out in the La Fortuna of San Carlos. Experiencing it´s last major eruption in 1968, Arenal still demonstrates impressive volcanic displays for the thousands of tourists that flock there annually.
After lunch you will then be rejuvenated by the thermal power of Arenal at Baldi hot springs amongst the 25 mineral pools that naturally flow from the volcano. These nutrient rich waters have medicinal properties certified by L.N.A. (Laboratorio Nacional de Aguas). To conclude the day, dinner will be served from another great vantage point of Arenal, as your final opportunity to appreciate this natural wonder.
ONE DAY ISLA TORTUGA
Enjoy a leisurely day on one Costa Rica´s most tranquil islands- Isla Tortuga. This island paradise (which is actually comprised of 2 small islands) offers some of the most pristine white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters in the Gulf of Nicoya, on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. This trip to remember is all inclusive- transportation, meals, entertainment, and multilingual guide. From San Jose you will access the Puntarenas dock in the comfort of an air-conditioned bus, stopping to enjoy a typical Costa Rican breakfast along the way. Your boat ride to the Island is certainly done in style- on a 71 foot Catamaran Manta Ray, equipped with a more than generous communal deck area to truly relish the scenery and possibly catch a glimpse of marine animals such as dolphins or sea turtles. Complimentary services on board include Costa Rican coffee, a selection of fresh tropical juices, soft drinks, fresh water showers and a ramp for ease of access. Once upon Isla Tortuga you can walk the available nature trails, simply relax on the beach, swim in the more than inviting waters, or enjoy an optional snorkeling tour. A scrumptious lunch will be served on the island, accompanied by chilled white wine and live marimba music. An elegant 4 course dinner will also follow in the evening (Calypso;s famous, prize winning Ceviche, Salad Bar, Entrée, Desert)- a delicious way to bring a perfect island getaway to its close.
