The Costa Rican Spirit Trekker Adventure Itinerary includes breakfast, so you will not have to worry about this as you wake up each morning. As you fill up on Gallo Pinto and fresh fruit you will be able to take in the colors and sounds of the variety of animals and birds that are active just after sunrise each morning. This morning, a guide will pick you up for your jungle hike. It is a challenging 2 to 2 1/2 hour uphill, jungle hike to arrive at the pristine cloud .....and rainforest environments that you will call home for the next couple of days. Your accommodations are unique. They are located inside a very large, open-air cave behind two 90 ft waterfalls. There is a kitchen (and sleeping facilities) where all equipment and provisions are provided. On the mountain, there are 10 spectacular waterfalls including Costa Rica’s tallest at 600 ft! When you arrive, lunch will be served and you will be oriented to your incredible surroundings. We’ll take today to do some exploring. We’ll do an intro waterfall rappel. We’ll hike to another waterfall where we’ll do some cliff jumping into pristine river pools where we can relax and go swimming. You’ll return to the cave in the late afternoon for dinner and rest.

In October, Costa Rica’s weather patterns tend to flip. A mountain chain runs down most of the central part of Costa Rica creating two vast slopes (the Pacific watershed and the Caribbean watershed), which define the weather on each side of the country. On the Pacific side (pretty much everything from the capital of San Jose and westward) in October, they are in the heart of the rainy season. It is not uncommon for it to rain every day as precipitation levels are at their highest. Conversely, the Caribbean side .....gets a reprieve from the rain in October and tends to be sunnier and dryer. In fact, the weather on the Caribbean side of the country (San Jose and eastward) tends to be so nice in October that high season pricing and availability is in effect. Show less

Monteverde has hostels and hotels and since this area is more rural, lodges and inns are very common. There are a few hostels in town such as Santa Elena Backpackers or you can stay at a hotel with views of the cloud forest such as Hotel Poco a Poco or El Establo. We stayed at 2 Airbnbs in Monteverde that were lovely. Perfect for couples or 2 friends.

Perhaps the most popular destination in Limón is Puerto Viejo (Old Harbour), which is known for its easy-going, beach-based tourism. It is home to the famously long surf break, Salsa Brava (AKA “intense sauce”) as well as lots of internationally inspired Caribbean fusion restaurants. Surfboards and laid-back partying are the two main activities in the center of town. Renting bikes is one of the most common forms of transportation, and it’s very inexpensive.

Since you rented a car with Adobe Rent a Car, they have free car delivery for Mytanfeet readers so you don’t need to go to their office to pick up the car. The car will be delivered to the hotel at 8 AM and then you’re off to Arenal! The route from San Jose to Arenal is around 3 hours and is on a well paved road. We recommend using Waze as your GPS. The route gets a little curvy past San Ramon but the views are very nice and you .....can stop for lunch on the way. Show less

There is a direct bus from San José to Sierpe through the bus company Tracopa. However, it’s not too fast—the bus won’t make it in time to take the afternoon boat. So people usually stay in Sierpe and take the boat the next day to Drake Bay. Also, you can take the bus to Palmar Norte (with the same company—Tracopa) and from there take a taxi to Sierpe to catch the boat. Getting directly to Drake Bay by bus: We haven’t done it in this way, but according to some information I found from a .....hostel in the area: From San Jose, you can also arrive at the hostel by taking the 8am bus to Puerto Jimenez. Ask the driver to drop you off at La Palma de Osa. From the bakery at 4.30 pm, a collective bus will arrive which can drop you right at our door. The collectivo costs around $10 and takes 1.5 hours from La Palma….- Drake Bay Backpackers Show less

It is a rural area of Costa Rica, with a population of around 500, no ATMs and the only way to get around is by boat. Since this area is made up of canals and beaches, you have to take a boat to get there which is the reason behind Tortuguero’s nickname of “little Amazon.” This area is famous for the turtle .....nestings and other wildlife such as sloths, jaguars, birds and monkeys.

While many travelers chose to visit the more popular parts of Costa Rica such as the endless beaches of the Guanacaste, the precious yet touristy Manuel Antonio National Park in the Central Pacific Coast or the cloud forests or Arenal volcano of the Northern Zone, a visit to Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula will be sure to be an experience not like any other. Where else can you be rewarded with the opportunity to immerse yourself with the local life, culture and extraordinary nature in one of the most magical, biodiverse places .....on earth? The pure remoteness of the Osa Peninsula works to keep the hordes of tourists away which is an added bonus. If you want the pure, real deal then go to the Osa Peninsula. It is sadly the last frontier of Costa Rica and hopefully it will stay that way. Some of the unique things you can do in the Osa Peninsula include bathing in jungle swimming holes and waterfalls, birdwatching in a private lagoon, spending a night in a locally run guesthouse that is only reachable by foot, eating home-cooked Tico cuisine, all while supporting the local community. A highlight of any visit to the Osa Peninsula includes a day or more at the Corcovado National Park where you can see scarlet macaws, monkeys, sloths, tapirs and for those lucky few, an endangered jaguar. You can also spend a day dolphin and whale watching or diving and snorkeling off Isla de Caño or go for a sunset horseback ride on the rarely visited Playa San Josecito. The options are endless and after few days in the Osa Peninsula you will be wishing you had more. The Osa Peninsula is idea for nature lovers, adventure lovers, families and couples, and especially those who are interested in supporting sustainable tourism. However, be prepared. The Osa Peninsula is still like the Outback and getting there and around requires a test of patience and some white-knuckle driving. Many places are only reachable on foot, on ATV or by boat. For those who love adventure, this is the place for you! Show less

If you love coffee, then the Central Valley is a must. This area produces some of the best Costa Rican coffee due to the fertile soil around the many volcanoes and rivers. If you meander through the hills of Grecia or San Ramon, you’ll see coffee farms everywhere since it is the correct altitude to grow the plants.

San José, Costa Rica’s capital city, is home to a number of worthwhile museums, but to me, one museum sticks out above all others. The Museo de Arte Costarricense, housed in the terminal building of San José’s former airport, is home to various art pieces and paintings made by Costa Rican artists. The sculpture garden outside has a collection of beautiful copper statues ranging from realist to modern, all backed up by a view of the building, which is a masterpiece in itself. The upstairs Golden Room, a former VIP .....waiting area at the airport, is the museum’s crowning jewel; a golden-hued, 3D mural spanning all four walls of the room depicting the history of Costa Rica. Best of all, entrance to the museum is free. Show less

The drive from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez varies depending on the route taken. The two main ways to go are via the coastal highway or through the mountains. Visitors choosing to drive the coastal highway can count on a drive of approximately six hours. This is the faster, but generally less scenic route. Starting out, head west out of San Jose on Highway 27. This highway connects with Highway 34 – the coastal highway – just outside the town of Coyolar. This route continues south on Highway 2 at Palmar .....Norte and then to Highway 245 just north of Piedras Blancas. The mountainous route starts on Highway 2 heading south out of San Jose. The route goes through Tapanti National Park and Los Quetzales National Park. The route meanders through the mountains and is longer by both distance and time than the coastal route. Drivers on this route can count on approximately 6.5-7 hours of driving time. As noted above, this is the much more scenic and beautiful way to get there. Show less

There are two main beaches that people frequent here. Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada. Guiones is mostly touristy, has better consistent surf for beginners or well-experienced surfers, and is larger in shoreline. Pelada is quieter, more local, has less restaurants around (but does have a restaurant on the beach called La Luna, unlike Guiones which has no beach restuarants. Part of a government initiative to keep the environment natural, no building is permitted within about 200 yards of the beach.). The two beaches are connected by a “secret” pathway which makes traveling to .....the other beach a lot quicker than taking the main roads. Show less

Monteverde is also great for hiking and ziplining, as they claim to have set up the first recreational zipline in .....the world. There are a lot of things to do in Monteverde but since you went on adventures already in Arenal, we recommend to hike the cloud forests.

My overall experience at Mistico Park is that they take things to another level. Their customer service and attention to detail are seriously impressive. They went over and above what I expected time and again and I have no hesitation in telling you if you go to La Fortuna book a tour with them. You will not regret it! I know I didn’t. The one thing I found most difficult in Costa Rica was how expensive things were in comparison to other places in Central America I have visited. For that .....reason it is really important you do a good Costa Rica budget before traveling. Not sure if you should visit La Fortuna or Monteverde? I must admit I wanted to do both places but I just didn’t have the time. If you can’t decide then take a read of this great comparison by Have Seat Will Travel to help you decide!         Show less

Choosing the best beach in Costa Rica is one tall ask; the country is blessed with nearly a thousand miles of coastline and a stunning variety of beaches to boot. So instead, we’ll point you in the direction of Samara, a super groovy village ideal for kicking back, hanging out and enjoying that Costa Rican low and languid way of doing things. It just so happens to boast an incredible beach, too.   Less touched by tourism than much of the Northern Pacific Coast of the country, Samara has a more .....‘authentic’ feel, with the downtown offering hip restaurants and bars whilst still maintaining its Tico soul. The main beach, Playa Samara and the nearby Playa Carillo are as idyllic as they come, with palm trees abundant, calm waters and a coral reef just offshore catering to snorkelling enthusiasts.

This fantastic wide, flat, gorgeous beach has waves that are just right for beginning surfers. You won’t be completely alone, but it’s noticeably less crowded than Playa Santa Teresa.

Sitting in the Pacific Ring of Fire, Costa Rica is home to over 200 volcanic formations.  Not to fret though as only 5 of those are active today. The most active out of them all is The Arenal which was spewing hot gases and steam up until 2010. Due to the abundance of volcanoes, you will find many hilly slopes where you can go mountain biking and soak in the many hot springs around. The volcanic activity makes the soil rich and fertile hence the incredible and diverse wildlife.

Barva is a small charming town with historic significance just north of Heredia. This town was first founded in the 16th century. Many homes are built with a red-tiled adobe. Barva has been noted as a national historic landmark in the region. For history buffs, visit the Barva Basilica. This church built in 1767 has a courtyard and grotto dedicated to the Virgin of Lourdes. For a culinary experience, visit the Café Britt coffee plantation where you can get an educational tour of the sustainable practices of this famous Costa .....Rican coffee plantation. From Barva, you can get into the Braulio Carillo National Park (Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo). This area makes up a large piece of the Heredia Province. The Braulio Carillo National Park was founded in 1978 to protect the area from the development of an incoming highway. The protected zone encompasses 108,970 acres and is Costa Rica’s second largest national park. It received its name from Costa Rica’s third president, Dr. Braulio Carrillo. The area protects a cloud rainforest and a system of rivers. This large park has one of the highest levels of diversity in Costa Rica. For those going out on a long hike be sure to bring layers as the higher altitudes in this park can drop to freezing temperatures in the evening. Show less

Nearby is the town of Olot, where you’ll find even more things to, from visiting breweries, to walking around the old town and marketplace.

Perhaps the highlight of Girona is its impressive Jewish Quarter. Here you’ll find winding cobblestone streets, stone walls, stairways, and secret gardens. While the Jews of Spain were expelled way back at the end of the 15th century, it’s a miracle that much of Girona’s Jewish Quarter is still standing. The Jewish Ghetto started to form around the 1100s and continued to develop over the next 300 years eventually becoming one of the largest in Spain. This part of Girona was even selected by the producers to film parts of Season 6 .....of Game of Thrones. If you’re a GoT fan, you’ll recognise scenes from Braavos and Kings Landing, minus a bit of CGI here and there. Show less

You might throw a coin in the Rome’s Trevi fountain or rub Juliet’s breast in Verona, but in Girona you have to kiss the Lion’s butt. Located just outside Church of Sant Feliu is this odd looking lion which if kissed will guarantee a return-trip to the city. The official message reads: “Qui besa el cul de la lleona retorna a Girona” “Whoever kisses the lioness’s ass will return to Girona.” The tradition of kissing the Lion’s bottom used to be a way to officially declare your allegiance and love for the city of Girona .....and a way to recognise your status as a “gironí.” Show less

Our last day in Costa Rica was spent touring the La Paz waterfall gardens. The $38.00 entrance fee was a little bit hard to stomach, but the experience we had there was worth a $200.00 entrance fee. Speaking of rain, it was pouring the whole three hours we spent in this park. The first part of the park is like a mini zoo with a butterfly garden, bird aviary, and jungle cats exhibit. Those were all kind of interesting, but the waterfalls were the best part of the visit.

The remote village of Montezuma has gorgeous rainforest, waterfalls, and surrounding beaches. The beach here is extensive, but is rocky and can be a challenge for swimmers. At low tide, travelers can explore and swim in the tide pools. Travelers can also hike in the nearby Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve on the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. Cabo Blanco has especially beautiful white-sand beaches, nesting grounds for native bird species, and abundant wildlife. For an adventure, check out Montezuma Waterfall south of the town. Hike along a stream past a couple of smaller .....falls before coming to the upper falls, the real crowd pleaser. El Chorro is a seaside waterfall that can emerge weather dependent. Five miles north of Montezuma, it’s roughly a 2-hour hike on the beach to reach the waterfall. Show less

Best for: an all-over great beach for everybody This spectacular white-sand beach is lined with palm trees and shallow waters and adjacent to a cute beach town. It’s touristy enough that you can rent boogie boards or kayaks, sign up for surf lessons, or eat at a trendy restaurant on the beach, but you won’t find large resorts. It’s perfect for people who want to be off the beaten path but not too far off the beaten path.

It consistently makes everyone’s lists of the best beaches in Costa Rica, and is quite popular despite how difficult it is to access. There are two resorts on this beach: The Westin Conchal and W Reserve Conchal. If you are not a resort guest, you’ll have to approach Playa Conchal by walking from the adjacent Playa Brasilito. Word on the street is that it’s worth the effort (although I’m not sure if .....that would be true with my 3-year-old in tow…) You can read a good guide with directions to this beachhere. Show less

Growing up in a Lithuanian household—my mom is a first-generation Lithuanian American—we’d always wanted to get back to our roots with a “roots trip” to the small Baltic country. We finally made it happen in spring 2018. Our Baltic road trip took us through Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, with the star of our show being, of course, Lithuania. We visited the town my grandma grew up in, Kaunas, as well as the church she’d always talked about in Zapyškis. We also met with the 70-year-old brewer, Aldona Udriene, who made a .....huge Lithuanian brunch for us before telling her story and touring us through her brewery. In true Lithuanian style, our “quick visit” turned into six hours of eating, drinking and merriment—and we wouldn’t have it any other way. (You can read more about our time with Aldona in this article for October Magazine.) Here are a few highlights from our trip. Show less
