Coast to Coast Costa Rica–

Costa Rica is a hidden Oasis. An ideal destination with the rich coast, a bio-diverse country, with half a million species- from insect to the giant anteaters that devour them. Rainforest hikes and brisk high-altitude trails, rushing white-water rapids and warm-water, world-class surfing: Costa Rica offers a dizzying suite of outdoor adventures in every shape and size – from the squeal-inducing rush of a canopy zipline to a sun-dazed afternoon at the beach. National parks allow visitors to glimpse life in both rainforest and cloud forest, simmering volcanoes offer otherworldly vistas, and reliable surf breaks are suited to beginners and experts alike. Wildlife abounds in Costa Rica: keel-billed toucans ogle from treetops and scarlet macaws raucously announce their flight plans. A keen eye will discern a sloth on a branch or the eyes of a caiman breaking the surface of a mangrove swamp, while alert ears will catch rustling leaves signalling a troop of white-faced capuchins or the haunting call of a howler monkey. You may enter the country not believing it, but after a week you'll be saying it, too, unconsciously: pura vida, mae. Relax and enjoy the ride. Enjoy all the itinerary has to offer

Why Book This Trip

We have created this tour for travellers who want to discover all of the major Costa Rican highlights but are short of time. Including the wildlife of Manuel Antonio, the cloud forest at Monteverde and Arenal's conical volcano, this trip will not disappoint.

Climate

Seasonal weather patterns can be unpredictable. Up-to-date information on the weather worldwide can be found by following the BBC weather link on this page. Costa Rica has a tropical climate with high temperature humidity and rainfall. The average temperature is 21°C in the highlands and variable in the lowlands. The rainy season is from May to November and the summer from December to April, but it does still tend to rain, usually in short bursts. Bear in mind that Costa Rica has 12 microclimates and weather can vary significantly in one day.

Clothing

Lightweight clothing is essential in midsummer though a warmer jumper is advisable for cooler evenings in the highlands (Monteverde can be very cool at night). A good waterproof is essential, and you could consider waterproof trousers. The jungle lowlands are hot and muggy, and it can rain at any time of year. Long trousers and long-sleeved shirts are recommended on jungle walks. Please be aware there is a reasonably priced / fast laundry in La Fortuna / Arenal.

Footwear

Lightweight trail/walking boots for jungle walks, comfortable shoes/trainers and sandals. In the rainy season waterproof boots are recommended. Luggage - 20kg- Recommended Luggage: On tour One main piece of luggage and a daysac. Remember, you are expected to carry your own baggage - don't overload yourself.

Equipment

We recommend a sunhat, sunscreen, a small umbrella, a torch, insect repellent, a travel adaptor and a water bottle. Binoculars are essential for bird and animal spotting, and, for those interested, we also recommend bringing snorkelling equipment for your time at Manuel Antonio National Park.

Tipping

Tipping isn't compulsory, but tour leaders work hard to ensure that you enjoy your trip to the fullest. However, you might want to recognise a leader that's done a great job or really added to your trip by giving them a Tip. We're often asked about the recommended amount. It's a tricky one, and down to personal preference, but we'd recommend between $20 to $25 per person per week as a guideline

Local crew

Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, your leader may organise a group's tips kitty for included activities and meals and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour. Accordingly, you should allow US$ 40, approx. 23'450 Colones for group tipping For all non-included services and meals on your trip please tip independently at your discretion.

Food and drink

The costs for meals may vary depending upon location, type of restaurant and number of courses eaten and so the prices given are an average guide. Local restaurants located off the beaten track may be less expensive, whereas an upmarket restaurant located in the centre of a major city may charge more. Lunch price Dinner price - $ 16-20

Foreign Exchange

Local currency - Costa Rican Colon (CRC) Recommended Currency For Exchange You can choose to either change your money in advance or on arrival at the airport. Here you will find both ATMs and Bureau de Change. USD are accepted in some shops / restaurants. We recommend you take some emergency cash in USD.

ATM Availability - ATMs can be found in the major towns and cities for cash withdrawals in Colones.
