Bienvenidos a Costa Rica!

Upon your arrival in San José, Costa Rica, and after passing through immigration you will be met by a member of the National Chamber of Tourism (CANATUR) who will give you a sticker with your name and the Costa Rica Sun Tours logo that will facilitate our representative to identify you after you exit the airport building. After clearing immigration and customs, exit the airport terminal and look for a Costa Rica Sun Tours representative who will be waiting for you holding a sign with Costa Rica Sun Tours logo and your name on it. He/she will greet you and present you with land portion vouchers and transfer you to your hotel in San Jose.

Early this evening, join your guide for an orientation briefing with an overview of the following days' activities, and ask questions to prepare for the trip.
