Costa Rica Ultimate Family Getaway Vacation
8 Days and 7 Nights
This itinerary is ideal for families that want a vacation filled with adventure and relaxation! With only two destinations, there is less moving around and more time to immerse yourself into the daily rhythms. Arenal Volcano and La Catalinas boast tons of fun activities and we’ve chosen properties for maximum comfort and flexibility.
ARENAL VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK
Upon arrival to Liberia, Costa Rica, a private transfer will be provided to your hotel near the Arenal Volcano. Overnight at The Springs Resort & Spa.
Arenal volcano was the most spectacularly active in Costa Rica. For 30 years hotels in the region touted their views of the lava flows and red hot boulders ejected from the volcano glowing in the darkness.
For the past ten years the red hot lava has been biding its time and the activity at Arenal has been limited to puffs of steam and a few deep rumbles. No one can predict when this quiet cycle will end and the glowing red orange cone will once again dominate the night sky but even when it’s not erupting spectacularly the peak is still an imposing and beautiful sight.
There’s always a chance that clouds will obscure the top of the volcano but volcano but if you stick around a couple of days taking advantage of some of the other attractions in the area you’re likely to also get great volcano views.
There are also activities that you can enjoy completely free, such as walks around the town, visit crystalline rivers or visit Lake Arenal, and if you rent a bike, you can take a ride through different towns near La Fortuna such as El Castillo or La Guaria. Finally, your vacation in La Fortuna Costa Rica will not be complete, if you do not visit the Arenal Volcano Hot Springs.
Tonight, dinner is on your own. You may enjoy a quiet evening meal at the hotel or adventure yourself to downtown La Fortuna for more local flavour and authentic restaurants.
