Welcome to Unique Costa Rica

Upon arrival, a private transportation and guide will be awaiting for you on the airport’s exit. After this, you will be continued towards a nice lunch or dinner (depending on your arrival time) at an unique spot in a mountain-overlooking restaurante. There a 2 course meal will mark your way towards La Fortuna and ease some of the traveling away with real fresh air. 

After your meal, you can stop by Zarcero’s iconic park and Cupressus Trees. 

Your trip will take around 2 hours and after you are set in your room, you can enjoy the real rainforest feel of your room and loosen up in your own private Jacuzzi.

Accommodation: Nayara Gardens

Meals: Lunch or dinner (arrival depending)

Kayak, Stand Up Paddle or Boat Trip at Arenal Lake and Cooking Lessons

Days start differently around here: howler monkeys marking the sunrise, rainbow billed toucans singing or even monkeys visiting your nearby trees are just some of the possibilities in an exclusive location like yours. 

After breakfast, you will be greeted by your guide at the lobby and set off to an actively relaxed morning; once the safety briefing is up, your guide will take you on your transportation selection for the day to admire up-close the massif: Arenal Volcano. 

You will have the opportunity to choose from a Kayak, Stand Up Paddle or Boat tour around the Lake. Kayak gets you more active, whilst Stan Up Paddle takes advantage of your posture and balance. On the boat selection, you have a worry-free enjoyment for the visit. 

The area surrounding the lake is inspiring as the water reflects the hills of pastured and forested shore, while the Arenal Volcano can be seen in the east. The artificial lake was formed in 1979 as part of Costa Rica’s Green Energy Production strategies, with 85 km², it contains a wide variety of wetlands wildlife from Crocodiles to birds. 

After a snack break, you can change your clothes to return to your hotel. 

During the late afternoon, you will join a rather unique perspective on Costa Rica’s cuisine and a chef will run you through the ingredients, its history within our society and how they combine into some of our most acclaimed dishes. 

After enjoying your self-made dinner, you will set back to the comfort of your room

Accommodation: Nayara Gardens

After this 2 hour ride, you will set back for a tasty lunch before changing your clothes and get back to your hotel. 

There, you will be treated to a lovely massage therapy of volcanic stones and aromatherapy, along with the jacuzzi setting and outdoor shower, making you really feel like yourself, and one with the surroundings.
