Andaz & Pacuare Lodge Luxury Package

9 Days - 8 Nights

Experience Costa Rica’s natural beauty and diversity in luxury with this exciting package that combines the sun, sea, and sand of an idyllic Pacific beach resort with the thrills, spills, and wilderness of the Pacuare River, a whitewater route that flows through pristine rainforest on the country’s Caribbean slope. You’ll enjoy world-class accommodations and dining and a selection of optional outdoor adventures in two gorgeous yet different environments – the Pacific Coast and tropical dry forest of the Andaz beach resort and the lush rainforest and riverine scenery of the Pacuare Lodge. This package begins in Liberia and ends in San José.

Day 1: Welcome to Costa Rica!

You’ll be met at the Liberia airport and driven to the luxurious Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort on Costa Rica’s sunny Pacific Coast.

Days 1-4: Four nights at Andaz Peninsula Peninsula Papagayo Resort

You’ll spend four unforgettable nights at the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort (Andaz room or similar), surrounded by patches of tropical dry forest and the calm waters of Culebra Bay. In addition to the beach and swimming pools, you can enjoy snorkeling, sea kayaking, and paddle boarding, as well as opportunities for visiting and helping local communities. You can also choose from day tours to national parks and other attractions (not included in package price).

Day 5: Fly and drive from Guanacaste to Pacuare Lodge

This day you’ll experience a changing panorama of landscapes as you fly from Costa Rica’s drier northwest to its capital of San José – perched in the volcano-rimmed Central Valley – where you’ll be driven through the mountains to the scenic Pacuare River, on the country’s luxuriant Caribbean slope. Overnight at the award-winning Pacuare Lodge (Garden Suite).

Days 6-7: Explore Pacuare Lodge surroundings

You’ll have two days to savor the exuberant tropical nature, views of the river and rainforest, exquisite meals, friendly atmosphere, and soothing tranquility of this remote nature lodge. You can explore the surroundings on such exciting tours as guided rainforest hikes, the Pacuare Canopy Adventure or Canyoning experience ; visit a rural community or the Cabecar Indian palapa; or simply indulge in some rejuvenation at the lodge’s spa (not included in package price).

Day 8: Whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River and return to San José

After another delicious breakfast, you’ll depart by raft for a fun-filled day of whitewater rafting (approximately 3½ hours over class III-IV rapids) that will take you past waterfalls and gorgeous rainforest scenery. You’ll enjoy a deli-style lunch on the riverbank and will have a chance to change into dry clothing after the river trip, before you’re driven to San José. Overnight at Grano de Oro Hotel or similar.

Day 9: Back to the airport

You’ll be picked up and driven to the airport in time to check in for your international flight.
