You can’t get much closer to nature than on this adventure. And you don’t even have to travel halfway around the globe to explore such wonders as rain forests, smoking volcanoes, and wildlife galore.
After one night at the Costa Rica Marriott Hotel in San Jose and welcome dinner to meet the other Adventurers, you’ll jump right into it full swing with an exciting white-water rafting trip on the Sarapiquí River. Then off to Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa, your hotel for the next three nights. The next day drive to Caño Negro for a boat ride on the Rio Frio amid a rain forest and plenty of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, many species of birds, bats, crocodiles, lizards and many more. Then lunch riverside before returning to your hotel. The most exciting day of the trip comes the next morning with ziplining, and in the evening, a welcome soak in nearby hot springs volcanically heated, followed by a private dinner!
More adventure awaits you at your beach vacation at Guanacaste and the El Mangroove Hotel with a stop at the Chocolate Rainforest on the road. The next morning board a catamaran and enjoy snorkeling off secluded beaches. Your high-spirited Costa Rican farewell consists of a final dinner with live regional music and folk dance.
After a night at the Westin Lima Hotel, fly to captivating Cusco, once the capital of the Incan Empire, high in the Andes Mountains. A private lunch of traditional Peruvian dishes and a weaving demonstration at the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco precedes a drive to the Sacred Valley and your hotel, the Sol y Luna Lodge & Spa. This evening is a welcome Andean feast know as Pachamanca accompanied by dances and stories of the Incas. The next few days bring an exciting raft trip down the Urubamba River as well as visits to the salt pan terraces of Maras, and the ruins of Ollantaytambo with its extensive terracing and irrigation systems.
Then off on a train trip to Machu Picchu, one of the most magnificent structures in the world, where you’ll lunch at Sanctuary Lodge located right next to the site. On your way to Cusco the next morning shop a Pisac market for local crafts, then view llamas, alpacas, and the rare vicuna at the Awana Kancha Camelida Center. Explore Cusco’s carved Incan walls and Spanish colonial buildings on foot before arriving at your hotel, the luxurious Palacio del Inka Hotel Cusco, just blocks from the central plaza.
The following day, visit the remarkable fortress of Sacsayhuaman, where 200-ton stones were moved miles without modern machinery, then explore Cusco on your own in the afternoon. Your adventure ends at La Casona de San Jeronimo, a colonial hotel, where you’ll enjoy a Peruvian feast and Andean parade.
