Day 1: From Puntarenas to the Tárcoles River

After disembarkation in Puntarenas, you'll be taken to the Guacalillo Estuary where you'll board today's jungle boat tour of the Tárcoles River.

The Mid-Pacific’s richest mangrove forest, this is Costa Rica’s primary conservation area for Scarlet Macaws. Look out for their dazzling plumage among the trees. In fact, it's a fantastic bird watching spot for all kinds of Costa Rican birds – from the very rare to the most common. You might spot kingfishers, roseate spoonbills, anhingas and great herons, as well as crocodiles lining the banks.

Then it's on to San José, where you'll spend the night in a hotel in the heart of the city.

Day 2: San José and departure

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your hotel as your Post-Programme comes to an end.

Please note that we may visit sites in a different order.
