On day three get ready to get your adrenaline pumping on an exciting canopy tour. You’ll fly through the tropical rainforest, getting a unique and beautiful view of the tree-tops. Your local guide will talk about the flora and fauna that you see during your adventure and how the indigenous people used these plants over the centuries for the healing and curative properties.
On day four, relax as you explore Cahuita National Park on horseback. You’ll get the chance to spot monkeys, sloths, raccoons, iguanas and more as your guide points out local plant and animal life.
Day five is all about relaxation and meditation. Schedule an hour-long massage, take a short walk through the lush vegetation, practice yoga during the sunset and just relax at your beautiful yoga resort.
On day six you’ll go on a hike through the tropical rainforest and discover a magical waterfall. This 40-minute hike takes you through some pristine wilderness and crystal clear flowing rivers. Relaxing underneath an amazing Costa Rica waterfall is an experience you’ll never forget!

Days 7 & 8 are free days. You can take a daily shuttle to nearby beaches, read a book by the ocean, plan excursions to nearby national parks, hang in your hammock, sunbath next to the jacuzzi, try some traditional food and do some souvenir shopping.
Enjoy an early morning yoga class with a world-class yoga instructor and take in the scenery of the beautiful coastline before hopping aboard your shuttle transfer back to San José for your last night in Costa Rica. Check into the Hotel Bougainvillea.
