the best of the pacific: Escape the city and head to the beach to discover some of Costa Rica's watery wonders with a riverboat ride, ocean swimming and jungle exploration on this day trip from the capital. Sandwiched between two oceans, Costa Rica has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Discover a hidden gem of white sands and turquoise waters at Punta Leona, and delve into the mysterious rainforest on a magical riverboat ride.
Leaving San José on the Old Spanish Road of 1606, you'll take a brief break to tuck into a hearty breakfast. Then, take a boat along the Tarcoles River, experiencing a world of crocodiles and tropical birds in this wild setting. Next, visit one of Costa Rica’s most stunning protected areas, Punta Leona Resort, an exotic paradise surrounded by 750 hectares of private transitional tropical wet and dry forest, which is a true haven for rainforest creatures. Relax on the beach and soak up the beauty of the white sands and deep blue ocean of the placid Pacific.
You have the rest of the day to enjoy this incredible location, with optional activities including watersports and a 90-minute guided walk through the jungle to spot some curious creatures. Or if relaxing is more your style, enjoy the hotel's beautiful pools and the crystal ocean. A delicious traditional lunch will be served in one of the local restaurants. As the sun goes down and the palm trees cast long shadows over the glittering waves, Punta Leona is a magical place to be, and will leave you with unforgettable memories of your Pacific idyll.
