Tag 1 San José

Ankunft zu jeder Zeit möglich.

Arrive to San José at any time. There are no planned activities during the day, so check into the hotel and explore the city. Please try to arrive before 6pm for an important group meeting where you can meet the Chief Experience Officer (CEO) and the other group members. If you arrive early enough, you'll have time to head into the city to visit a museum, shop or people-watch in the main plaza. As it is located in the central highlands, San José enjoys a moderate climate. Like most cities, San José has its good and bad sides. It is the centre of government, theatre, and art, as well as of air pollution and congestion. It has beautiful parks and museums, and a few beggars on the streets. It is big and often noisy, but even from its crowded downtown streets, you-

Tag 2 Monteverde

Am Morgen frühe Abfahrt von San Jose nach Monteverde. Ein Teil der Straße ist nicht geteert, bereite dich also auf eine etwas holprige Fahrt vor. Nach der Ankunft in Monteverde hast du Zeit für eine optionale Kaffeetour oder einen Ausritt.

Leave San José behind and head out into the country. The road is unpaved in areas, and can lead to a bumpy journey. Monteverde or Green Mountain, is exactly what you find at the end of the long, rutted dirt road through the mountains. The surrounding pastures were once covered with dense forest, but today only a small piece of it remains. That piece of forest has been preserved as the Reserva Biologica Bosque Nuboso Monteverde, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve. Cloud forest is much like a rainforest, but much of the moisture comes not from falling rain but from the condensation left by the nearly constant cloud cover that blankets the tops of mountains in many parts of the tropics. Monteverde Reserve covers 1600 hectares of forest and is home to a great variety of wildlife. More than 2,000 species of plants, 320 bird species and 100 different species of mammals inhabit this small area. The Santa Elena Reserve, another park contiguous with Monteverde, is less well known and visited but also worth seeing. All proceeds from this park profit the local community. On arrival in Monteverde there is time for an optional coffee tour or a horseback ride.

Tag 3 Monteverde

Optional kannst du eine Zuckerrohr- und Kaffeeplantage besuchen und zum Mittagessen regionale Speisen genießen, eine geführte Tour durch das Santa Elena Nebelwaldreservat unternehmen, auf Pferden ausreiten oder an Ziplines über die Bauwipfel rasen.

Options include touring a sugar cane and coffee plantation, including a local lunch, a guided tour of Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve, flying across canopy ziplines or horseback riding.

Tag 4 La Fortuna

Heute führt dich die Reise von Monteverde nach La Fortuna, wo dich unterwegs eine der besten Ausblicke in Costa Rica erwartet. Wir kommen gegen Mittag in La Fortuna an. Am Nachmittag hast du Zeit für optionale Aktivitäten oder einfach nur zum Entspannen.

Transfer this morning from Monteverde to La Fortuna. Set on the northern plains of Costa Rica, Arenal Volcano is on the shores of Lake Arenal, (77 square kilometres, or 48 square miles), created by a hydroelectric project. Winds sweeping off the Caribbean Sea reach speeds of 48 to 72 km/hr (30 to 45 mph), making Arenal one of the best sail boarding locations in the world. The lake actually separates the mountain ranges of Guanacaste and Tilarán. The volcano is set on the lake-

If there's time to relax, visit the Jaguar Rescue centre and learn more about these fascinating animals. Rent a boogie board if the waves are calling, dance the night away to reggae and calypso, taste flavourful Afro-Caribbean cuisine, and succumb to the natural beauty of this tropical paradise.
