Activities provided by the host




Nearest Arrival Airport
Juan Santamaría International Airport, San Jose
Arrival and transfer to Chilamate Rainforest (Day 1)

🏃 Welcome to Costa Rica. Most international planes from Europe and North America arrive at the International Airport Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría (SJO) in the afternoon or late evening, so we will meet either at the airport for car pick-up or see you in our hotel close to the airport. We will stay in our first accommodation—a luxurious 4-star hotel overnight and have everyone meet and get to know each other over a couple of drinks at the bar.

✅ Car and fuel for the whole trip
✅ 1 night in a luxurious hotel in your private room incl. breakfast

🛏 Private room in a 4-Star Hotel

🍽 Dinner is Included

Sloth’s Territory Rainforest and Hot Springs Pools (Day 2)

🏃 This morning, after a relaxed, chilled-out breakfast, our adventure into the lush and green rainforest of Costa Rica begins! We drive on a scenic forest route through some hilly slopes to see the sloths in their natural wild home. During the guided 2-hour hike with an English-speaking guide, the trail will allow us to enjoy a gallery forest with tropical vegetation and giant trees such as Chilamate and Guácimo Colorad. It is also the habitat of many other species, such as small cute opossums, birds like toucans and royal flycatchers. But the main attractions are the two- and three-toed sloths!

After saying goodbye to the sloths and if we have some extra time, we will drive up to a geothermal area known for its relaxing hot springs. We can enjoy the natural energy that surges from the veins of the nearby Arenal Volcano and heats the thermal pools from 32°C to 41° C (90°F to 106° F). Together with the cool water pools and waterfall, we will have some time to enjoy a relaxing hydromassage before continuing our drive. Our dinner as well as the entrance fee to the thermal bath are included.

Post dinner, we continue our drive, and in about 1.5 hours, we will reach our rainforest eco lodge, where we can enjoy the rest of the day and chill out together with a drink while listening to the sounds of the rainforest. We stay two nights in a rainforest retreat, where everyone has their own private rooms.

✅ 2-hours guided walk through the Sloth’s Territory rainforest
✅ Entrance and dinner at the hot springs thermal spa
✅ Drive along the Arenal Volcano Park and if the sky is cloudless, catch a glimpse of the volcano!
✅ 2 nights in a traditional locally run ecolodge in your private room incl. breakfast

🛏 Private room in a rainforest retreat

🍽 Breakfast and Dinner are included

Chilamate rainforest (Day 3)

🏃 After a sleep-in, we will enjoy a traditional breakfast with views of the Sarapiqui River. Lunch time will be free to enjoy the area around the retreat, where the river meanders beautifully along the green shores of the rainforest and bridges cross over here and there to have multiple unique views. I am sure we will be able to spot a lot of smaller and bigger animals here as well.

Around late lunchtime, we drive to a nearby village to visit a local family for a traditional Costa Rican cooking class! If there are vegetarians in our group, we will try to accommodate everyone. Our lunch will be eaten on site after we prepare it together.

The evening is free to enjoy and chill out because the activities do not stop here for the day! After dinner and sometime between 6 and 8 p.m., our experienced naturalist guide will pick us up to do a special night walk. A favorite find on the night walk are the red-eyed tree frogs and the kinkajou, a tropical rainforest mammal that looks a bit like a monkey with a very long cat tail. The night walk takes about 2 hours.

We stay one more night in a rainforest retreat and depart for San Jose the next morning after a late breakfast.

✅ Cooking class and lunch in a village with locals
✅ Guided 2-hours night walk through the jungle
✅ Dinner at rainforest retreat

🛏 Private room in a rainforest retreat

🍽 Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included

San José (Day 4)

🏃 After a late breakfast, we depart for the capital city of Costa Rica, San José! We shall reach San Jose after about 3 hours, but we will make several photo stops along the way as well.

And now, welcome to San Jose! We are now really in the heart of the country of Pura Vida, a friendly, multicultural, and multilingual culture descended from the fusion of immigrants, including Africans, Chinese, Jews, Lebanese, and Italians, and the indigenous peoples of the Bribrí, Cabécar, Maleku, Teribe, Boruca, Ngabe, Huetar, and Chorotega groups. It means that the cuisine will be as delicious, colorful, and interesting as all the cultures combined!

In Costa Rica, we check in at our 4-star hotel in the city center and have some time to unwind.

In the late afternoon, we meet our local English-speaking guide to learn more about Costa Rica`s cuisine and nightlife! On our private 4-hour trip through the night in the capital, including a 3-course dinner with a glass of wine or beer, we will learn about post-colonial Costa Rican history and hear stories about the traditions and habits of the locals.

We spend the next three nights in San Jose in a comfortable 4-star hotel with breakfast.

✅ Private 4-hour early night tour with a local guide
✅ Learn about Costa Rican history and cuisine
✅ Dinner
✅ 3 nights in a luxurious hotel in your private room incl. breakfast

🛏 Private room in a comfortable 4-star hotel

🍽 Breakfast and Dinner are included

Tortuga Island Tour (Day 5)

🏃 Today we embark early, as it is one of our only two early starts on this tour: the magical beaches of Tortuga Island are on the agenda! In the beautiful Gold of Nicoya, we sail through the clear blue waters aboard a catamaran, where we have good chances of spotting dolphins on our way to the island. Upon arrival, we will receive snorkeling equipment, and those who wish can join the group to explore the underwater world or just chill in the sun on deck.

Once we reach the island, we have the rest of the day (approximately 5 hours) to relax and enjoy the beach under palm trees.

✅ Day tour to Tortuga Island (might be shared with other travelers)
✅ Snorkeling in the crystal-clear seawater
✅ Beach time
✅ Lunch
✅ Seeing dolphins and turtles, if we are lucky!

🛏 Private room in a comfortable 4-star hotel

🍽 Breakfast and Lunch are included

Poás Volcano National Park and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (Day 6)

🏃 A guide and driver picked us up from the hotel today, and we drive to our first destination, a real active coffee plantation. If you are not a fan of early breakfasts or mornings, you can enjoy a delicious typical breakfast here, as we will have enough time to explore the plantation and the area with our guide. We will learn about the entire process of harvesting, fermentation, roasting, and exporting coffee. We will also have a delicious tasting of chocolate, liquor, and coffee.

After a stop at the plantation, we tour the famous Poás Volcano National Park at an altitude of 2,575 meters above sea level! Our tour will take us to see the second-largest crater in the world, the Poás Volcano. It is the most active volcano in Costa Rica and is currently in an eruption period, which means it will be possible to see sulfuric acid fumaroles and its beautiful turquoise lagoon.

Our last great visit on this tour includes an area where we find the five largest waterfalls in Costa Rica. The La Paz Waterfall Gardens is the best part of the tour. This beautiful park has one of the most beautiful trails in the country, where we can see more than 110 species of rescued wild mammals, such as jaguars and pumas, monkeys, and hummingbirds. We will have time to enjoy the beautiful panoramic views and also walk behind the La Paz waterfall. Definitely get your bikini and waterproof camera ready for this one!

In the late afternoon, we reach our hotel and can rest up, meet for drinks at the bar, or enjoy a chubbing night if anyone just has spare energy left! We'll decide in the group.

✅ Day tour to the active Poas Volcano National Park and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (might be shared with other travelers)
✅ Visit a coffee plantation
✅ Delicious buffet lunch on tour
✅ Farewell dinner in a restaurant in San Jose (we have recommendations)

🛏 Private room in a comfortable 4-star hotel

🍽 Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included

Departure (Day 7)

🏃 Every amazing road journey comes to an end, and so we say farewell to our newly found travel buddies!

You can fuel up yourself at the hotel restaurant before taking your flight back home. And if you can stay a little bit longer, just ask us for more recommendations on where to go and what else to see in the city! A shuttle from the hotel to the airport will be arranged for you, depending on your time of departure.

And now, what are you waiting for?! We hope to see you soon with us in Costa Rica!👋🙂

Going on this trip with Eleazar was amazing and would 100% go on another trip with him as the leader! Well organized itinerary that was thought out and executed with great communication prior and during the trip. Felt as is I knew him as long lost friends reconnecting for an amazing vacation. Iceland was a beautiful country and Eleazar was even willing to take photographs and videos with his camera and drone. If you have the opportunity to take a trip with him I highly recommended it!


Iceland with Eleazar Salcido

Sarah was a great host! Lots of communication between her and the group of girls I went with, so when we all met up it felt like we were already friends. She was super knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions before and during the adventure! Everyone was able to break off and do whatever we wanted in our down time, some went out for nightlife while others stayed back in and relaxed at the super nice hostels she picked out. Met some awesome girls during my travels with Sarah and I would love to visit Costa Rica again with the knowledge she shared! 🏝️🏝️


Costa Rica with Sarah Walsh

The Sicily trip was a good experience. Monica is a very friendly and communicative person who created a good mood during the trip. The trip itself was well organized and included relaxing on beautiful beaches as well as various local experiences (making typical Sicilian food, chocolate tasting) and sightseeing.


Sicily with Monica Gennarini

Maria is a great person. The trip was perfectly planned and we saw a lot during the week. It was a very good mix of adventure, hiking and road trip. We also had a lot of fun and laughed a lot. 😂
I would do another trip with Maria in a heartbeat.


Iceland with Maria Schoenfeld

Friendly, funny, punctual and really good behind the wheel. She picked is all up from the airport and dropped us off on our desired locations. She made good food suggestions, and helped us with out order and interactions.


Italy with Valentina

This was one of the best trips I have ever had! Everything was so well organised, so many great activities with good vibes all the way!This might not be the trip for passive people who love lying on the beach only. This is an active vacation and that's exactly what I needed. Filippo is an amazing guy, with smile on his face all the time :) He introduced us with the local life of Ericeira and vibes of the city!I'll join Filippo's trips in the future for sure!


Portugal with Filippo Galli
